Picked up a couple bottles of both 6 and 10 at Kahn's in Indy. This is my first Rochefort. Poured a nice brown with a wonderful large 3 fingered cream head into my Gulden Draak tulip glass. I half expected this beer to be a little darker but it was still pleasing to the eye. Aroma has notes of dark fruits and spice but the aroma never approached overpowering. Taste was also a nice mild flavor with loads of dark fruits and some spicy yeastiness. A nice sweet/creamy finish also makes itself known. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy as well. I could drink this all night... If it weren't 7.5 percent that is. A very very solid brew and I'm continuing my love affair with Belgians. I'm sure I'll get around to sampling the 10 this weekend.

Drink before 18.08.09 -- 33 cl. bottle picked up last week

Appearance: This lacing is truly indomitable. The bubbles and orange / red color are beautiful eye candy. And the head, though still sticking around, is a bit smaller than I would've liked. But this lacing is a work of art.

Smell: Beautifully complex dark fruit and malt is up front (as I expected), and it's incredible. Also getting a bit of ripe strawberry... Some phenols are there, along with some yeast, slight nuts, and maybe raisins. I was hoping I'd get more, but for what it is it's amazing in what's present and gorgeously rendered.

Taste: Once again, the dark fruit and mild malt flavors are coming through with flying colors. Possibly some darkness as far as raisins or chocolate. Tropical fruit comes through as it warms. Not as complex as the 8 or 10, but this is still right up there. Slow it down. Oh, and the aftertaste, of course, is also pretty heavenly.

Mouthfeel: I love the initial carbonation not seeming to be much, but then at the swallow there's a surprising and pretty fantastically balanced shot of it. It's creamy, balanced, and goddamn it's near perfect, but not quite there.

Drinkability: Because of the alcohol being only 7.5% (did I just say only 7.5%), this is something that can be tasted for a long and ethereal time. Any variety shouldn't be consumed at a pace more than one a day, anyway, in my opinion.

It's the cheapest one in price of all the Rochefort varieties, but you should still try. I was a little hesitant at first (because of the 8 and 10), and then decided to go for it. Soon enough I'll review the 10, as I've had it but it was at the Brickskeller and I wasn't taking notes. Rochefort can do nothing but right as far as I'm concerned.
