3.95/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From: Friar Tuck's, Savoy, IL
Date: Best by "041114" (is that 04/11/2014?)
Glass: St. Bernardus chalice

Rochefort's '6' is a richly malty, and caramelized sugar-sweet dubbel, satisfying for a colder evening. Though the ever-increasing price point of this beer saddens me, it is one I'll likely revisit in the future.

Pours a 1cm tall head of off-white to lightly khaki colored foam, composed of small to medium-sized bubbles, with average retention rates (about a minute). As the head fades to a thick ring around the glass and a few light, spotty islands of wispy foam atop the body, it leaves little lacing along the sides of the glass, a rare spot here and there. The body itself is a dark, semi-transparent amber brown, light bringing out brighter brown and burnt red hues. Carbonation is not visible.

Aroma is of Belgian amber candi sugar, toffee and caramelized sugar, dried dates and figs, slight grape-like ester, all with a bit of vague spiciness that I'd expect to find in a somewhat savory fruitcake.

Front of palate finds sweet amber Belgian candi sugar, raisin, dried date and fig sweetness, some herbal notes, and modest bread crusts. Mid-palate finds significant caramelized sugar, dried dates and brown figs, bread crust, and those hard-to-define savory-sweet spices (cloves? bay leaf?). Back of palate finds continued savory-sweet spices with caramelized sugar, dried dates, bread crusts, and slight bitterness and ethanol. Aftertaste is of mild amber Belgian candi sugar, caramelized sugar, and dried date and fig.

Beer is medium weight in body, with carbonation of medium-high intensity, resulting in a beer that gradually, creates a mass of foamy bubbles across the palate (so, mouthfeel is foamy and smooth). Finishes with a flash of ethanol heat in the nostrils, leading to a semi-dry close, with fairly intense stickiness lingering across the palate.
