Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a tulip. The second that I opened the bottle, the beer started to flow out. Thankfully I had a glass ready, and got a cloudy amber color with some noticable sediment. Good one finger of dirty tan head, which lingers for a bit before disapearing. Smells aren't as strong as I would like, but yeast and brown sugar sweetness are there. Tastes are of cherries, plums, and belgian yeast. Aftertaste give more spice and alcohol. Mouthfeel is great with a creamy texture, light-medium body, and a medium amount of carbonation. Drinkability of this beer is very good, sweet and creamy without being too heavy. Overall a very nice beer, but of course, this one is going to carry a higher price tag (4.99 for a single).

Rochefort 6 is slightly better so far than the two 8's I have tried, which were variable in quality, as seems to be the case here with other reviewers. I will try the 10, but for the price, I'll take Bernardus, Duvel, Orval, any day.
A: Pours a hazed, sienna body, well carbonated resulting in ample, mounding, but short-lived, foamy, off-white head that laces as you enjoy.
Smell: The aroma is the best part, with dominant, complex fruit like a wine: Flower shop, apples, cider, and ripe plums, and a back end of yeast, and more flowers, incense, varnish, and a bit of pepper.
Taste: Follows the smell, with more brown sugar and caramel coated fruits. .Bright floral highlights and fruitiness mixed with tempering yeasts. No hint of alcohol, but wine-like, warming, tannin and with a nutty finish. (DEFINITELY A MUST WITH CHEESE)
Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, a bit prickly, and thinner than I would like.
Drinkability: Very complex, enjoyable brew, for me a bit thin, too carbonated, and 2nd rank to the fuller dubbels out there. 4.25 for its rare complexity, and it's after dinner elegance.
I think I found ideal match with Comte & Irish raisin soda bread.
