Thanks to amietaj1 and Ktown67 both for providing me samples of this beer in trades.

Presentation: Poured from 330ml bottle into Duvel tulip glass.

A: Pours a really nice orange, auburn, brown color that is opaque. Nice yeasty floaters, but only 1 finger head that dissipates extremely quickly, and no lacing on the glass. First beer I've seen though that actively carbonates from the etched "D" in the bottom of the Duvel glass.

S: Can't pin down what this smells like in order to be able to describe it, but it is very good and makes me want to drink it. Smells like some sort of dried fruit. Quite nice and muted.

T: The taste is superb. It's very fruity like a good unsweetened tea, and the similarities to unsweetened tea continue with its lack of malty sweetness. Very dry on the finish but not nearly like an Orval in that regard. Compares quite similarly to Chimay Red with less sweetness. I really like this. Nothing is overpowered so it's very well balanced.

M: Carbonation is about right, maybe a little much but better than being undercarbonated. It's slightly thin on the body, and not creamy enough though. Either way still very good.

D: I could drink this beer all night as previously stated nothing overpowers another element. It's extremely balanced. Not to sweet, bitter, malty, carbonated, or heavy.

Not sure if I prefer this to Chimay Red, but not having them side by side they're both extremely similar. My guess is the Chimay Red is slightly better due to its increased sweetness (for me personally) but I really liked this beer. Too bad we can't get it in Texas.

popped the red with white lettering rochefort 6 top and gave it a slow pour into my goblet left the yeast build up stay at the bottom of the 33 cl bottle .

Appearence:directly after the slow steady pour i got a rocky big bubble frothy head though this went away in seconds. the color is a chest nut reddish brown lighter then the other rocheforts i`ve seen, so far so good.

Smell. put this up to my nose and took two sniffs and sweet roasted malt and grains come to mind a bit of fruit like figs and dates,brown suger even a little chestnut scent, smells like autumn .

taste: lite bodied the malt and fruit flavor ain`t very strong some cereal grainness coming through ,i can detect the alcohol but not in a over powering way followed bye dry leafy hops .

Mouthfeel: theres a lite feel to this brew perhap watery a tad bit of malt sweetness on the palate, with a dry hops after taste .

Drinkability:this beer says fall to me, i like rochefort i like what they have done with the trappist style but my favorite still is rochefort 8 .Although don`t get me wrong this is a very good beer.cheers.

Ugh, this was bland, weak, one-dimensional, and to me a total waste.

Red amber, it has a huge light tan head, steadily shrinking and leaving only a weak trace of lace.

The aroma is Hershey's chocolate (not rich or dakr chocolate, or cocoa - the first clear warning to me as this is not remotely the kind of "chocolate" quality I'd look for in a beer), with wints of wine, raisin, and metal.Overall, it's a litle off-putting.

The taste is vague winey-fruity with tanginess and a fleeting hint of Hershey's chocolate, but otherwise thin, one-dimensional, and bland, bland, bland. This is about as boring a beer as I have ever had.

Poured into Chimay goblet. Pours a worn brown leather with orange hues. When first decanted the head is a couple fingers thick and sounds like a bowl of rice kripies mixed with pop rocks.

Nose is caramel, almost cola-like with notes of brown sugar, corriander, licorice, and sweet tarts.

Surprisingly smooth on the palate but followed by a mild crisp. Flavors include toasted malt, creamy caramel, pepper, and vanilla. Bits of hop mix well with the alcohol creating a creme brulee after taste. Mouthfeel finishes slick and buttery; very little burn.

A fanastic beer and I look forward to trying again. The ABV is hidden extremely well along with so much going on flavor-wise; a palate experience.

Bottle courtesy of IBUnit63 - thanks!! Split at a tasting w/ IBUnit63, proteus93, and dkachur. Poured into a brandy snifter.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, floaty-ful reddish brown, hazy but nonetheless full of quick, fine-bubbled carbonation, and capped by one-finger of slightly dull (or perhaps slightly tan) head with fantastic retention, consistently throughout. The neck of this glass is small, so the collar is pretty much "the head" for much of the experience, but the collar is thick and foamy, as is the dusting atop this one. Just a very nice looking brew.

Aroma: Pleasant, and hits most of the right notes. Very yeasty, in a light earthy way, with some buttery, doughy maltiness. Estery, light fruits form the rest of the notes - light cherry, buttery pear, slight banana. It's pleasant, but not groundbreaking.

Taste: A very interesting combination of maltiness and fruitiness here. Light brown sugar and molasses, slightly buttery, relatively sweet and bready, coupled with a ton of fruitiness, mostly stone fruits - cherries, pears, perhaps hints of blueberries, even. It's slightly phenolic, but also relatively "green," in that there's a definite hop or "light fruit" presence. Solid, though, again, not groundbreaking.

Mouthfeel: Huge effervescence in this one, absolutely off the top. The body itself is relatively thin, but even though the carbonation is huge, it somehow manages to very even, light, and very crisp but perfectly even.

Drinkability: This is a very solid beer. Perfectly Belgian, with those slight phenols, yeasty esters, fruit notes, malt notes ... hits all the right notes, really. At 7.5%, it's not undrinkable, and it's not even really that high for the style, so that's a good thing. This is the last of the Rochefort's for me to try, and though it's not as good as either of the others in my opinion, it's still a very solid Belgian brew.

A = Dark copper and cloudy full of sediment. Enormous 3 head off white head. Retained pretty well. No lacing.

S = Only real downfall of this one. Had a very funky smell. Something like rotting meat or a chunky diaper.

T = Thank God the taste didn't follow the nose. Very sweet with raisin, dates, and other dark fruity notes. Malty background. No bitterness or hops to be found. Starts sweet and stays sweet. Not hugely complex, but interesting.

M = Good medium to thick mouthfeel. Ample but not overwhelming carbonation.

D = Very drinkable. ABV is not huge and what's there doesn't show. Goes down quite easily and smooth. An easy drinker for sure.

This one is good, but a bit simple I would say. Overall, definitely not up to the R8. A good quality belgian that I would not mind drinking in the future. Just falls short of the 8 (haven't had the 10 yet).

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Into a Rochefort goblet, deeb red bordering on ruby, small light tan head that faded quickly leaving behind very light lacing. Aroma of light chocolate, fruitiness, raisins, slightly earthy. Flavor is much lighter compared the other Rochies, notes of cola, apple, dark fruit and light citrus, slightly herbal and grassy, makes for excellent belches. Body is slightly thin, but the carbonation's not as big as the others keeping it from becoming too crisp. This is a very nice beer, not quite as good as 8, but tasty indeed.

330ml bottle in chalis

A: coarse head but good size and shape, a little rocky and whitish tan. color is a red brown with a slight haze with yeast sediment

S: malt first, pils I believe, but others are there but hard to name, then some light hop aromas and sweetness. hint of mustiness as it warms as well as some high alcohol smells.

T: earthy malty and pleasant. some hotness as it warms, very smooth tasting with little hop flavor or bitterness, but still in good balance

M: rich creamy soft feel, although still high carbonation, medium body

D: good drinkability for its strength.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a goblet. Rather light color for the style. Hazy pumpkin orange instead of the traditional medium brown. Nice beige head leaves gobs of lace. Aroma is essentially a fruit basket. Grapes, pears, apples, figs, dates. Flavor contains many of the same notes but also a caramel maltiness, lots of yeast, and some alcohol. Mouthfeel is very effervescent, which makes it hard to drink until the beer has breathed for several minutes.

Reviewed 03/20/09 First day of spring gotta love it!!

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into my Floreffe Chalice. Moderate pour yielded a scant wisp of frothy topping that rings the inner rim of the glass. No lace to speak of. Color is a dark lightly clouded apple cider.

Nose- Very interesting. Slight apple cider, sweet caramel nuttiness. Some additional dark fruit esters that I can't totally place, some raisin and date.

Palate- This is fantastic. Wonderfully smooth, with deep and robust caramel. Deliciously rich nuttiness, mildly sweet. Hints of raisin, and chewy dates. Finishes moderately dry, with a faint note of spice. No hints of the 7.5% alcohol displayed on the label.

Mouthfeel- Very active, supremely rich.

Drinkability- Wow. I wish this was less then $5 a bottle as it would be my go to standard.
If you see it buy it. Seek out.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance:
Opaque. Hazy. Looks like it's living. Lots of yeasties, even though I still left about inch left in the glass. Head is slightly frothy, not too massive. And dissipates quickly. Lacing was almost non-existent.

Smell:
Aromas of bread and apple are there....maybe a little plum and clove. And it's slightly floral.

Taste:
Definitely has notes of apple. Some lightly sweet malts come through as well. I actually liked this more and more after each sip. Didn't taste much alcohol at all.

Mouthfeel:
Carbonated, crisp, fairly thin, yet comforting. Reminds me of autumn.

Drinkability:
Two thumbs up here. Excellent drinkability for a Trappist.

A dingy, muddied complexion and medjool date colouring, Rochefort 6 shows absolutely zero signs of carbonation. It looks, by all accounts, putrid and unsavory. The bottle was never recently agitated and I poured slowly and cautiously so as to exclude sediment, leaving more than the bottom inch still in the bottle. Still, the appearance less resembles something the body might take-in than something the body would secrete.

Luckily, the aroma assures me the visuals are no cause for concern; all it took was one quick smell to know nothing has gone wrong. The unsightliness is probably no fault of the beer's but rather something that occurred between when it left the brewery and when it came to my possession. If smell is any indication then this is as lively and vibrant a beer as one can hope to find. It is a perfumed bouquet that blends spices, herbs, malts and fruits.

The flavour shares in a similar arrangement. Notes of sweet honey, lemon juice, fortified wine, flower petals, dried fruits, stale bread and wild growing countryside herbs combine for an intricate and enigmatic taste. This sort of subtle and perplexing character is typical of Belgian ales, especially those of the great monastic breweries of which the Abbaye St-Remy at Rochefort is rightfully considered one of the finest.

Flavours are not only plentiful but they also lend themselves well to the drinker's imagination. I'm thinking the complexity in this profile should ensure that the beer could be paired with a wide variety of meals (although, at the moment, I'm beginning to yearn for some pungent abbey cheese to pair alongside it). Drinking ales like this it becomes clearly understood how Belgium's traditional cuisine can be so ingrained with its beer culture.

I've failed yet to mention perhaps its finest quality, which is that, quite simply, Rochefort 6 is a very pleasant drinking ale. Its fruity esters and phenolic yeast blend so well into a mellowed cast of creme caramel and figgy pudding flavours. It is gentle on the palate and low enough in alcohol to still be considered refreshing. Whether before, during, or perhaps even after a meal, this drink provides a wonderful option.

BB 19/11/13, served lightly chilled in Westmalle's broad-rimmed chalice. Besides the same kind of appearance and a similar, nearly perfect mouthfeel, this revisit has revealed some distinctive features different from my last encounter.

On the nose, in addition to the estery complexity (much milder than the last bottle, though), there's an intense, interestingly leather-ish and muddy/earthy note almost like from both yeasts and hops that are reminiscent of the Fuggles variety even! On the palate, the foretaste features a rather roasty and earthy flavour, then bitter chocolatey nut and earthy flavour prevail, before the spicy yeastiness develops and takes over at the back of the palate... Considerably roast-nutty in the aftertaste, on top of an overwhelmingly spicy yeasty aftertaste and lingering aroma...

I can't understand how this bottle could have been so different than what I recorded in my previous tasting notes, especially this time the fruit esters and candy-sugar are much more understated to allow the dark-malty side to play the first fiddle. I can't say which one I'd prefer, as both are sublime!

* Tasting Date: 12/06/06
BB 18/08/10, served cool in a large Burgundy bulb wine glass.
4.5 A: dark ruby or reddish brown hue, coming with an effervescent, off-white, thick cottony froth, sustaining beautifully; extremely lively carbonation underneath, to my surprise.
4 S: sweet apple-soda, rich and sour-sweet note of Yakult yeast-drink, plus utterly pronounced fruit-perfumy yeastiness and maltiness... some coconut powder reveals at the back, too. Overall, extremely interesting, if not the strangest aroma I've come across in the same beer style, almost like an uncharted territory for me!
4 T: exotic-fruity yeastiness comes with a rather dry yet caramel-like sweetish maltiness, followed by an undercurrent of dryish-sweet, dried herbs+spices, like cinnamon-powder+licorice+coconut+lots of other dried-fruity elements that I can't discern... A somewhat tangy edge sustains at the end of the palate and b/w the teeth, almost reminding me of a more tannic and zesty golden bitter!
5 M&4.5 D: I find myself short of words to be able to describe what's happening on my palate, as it's so different from 99% of all other Belgian dark ales I've tried. It's complex, full of excitement, delicious but dry, yet utterly creamy smooth on the mouthfeel... The dry-ish edge at the back is a huge plus, if not THE key, to the success of the flavour and palate. Simply put, this is a distinctive ale like no other. I'll try to find another bottle and also enlighten myself a bit with dictionaries before re-reviewing it in due course~~

A- Pours a murky brown color with ample yeasties and carbonation dancing around. The head was a rather short lived 2 finger tan soapy head. No lacing to speak of.

S- Aromatic brown sugar, green apples skins, peaches, hints of anise and fig. A tiny tough of chocolate and nuttiness can be gathered form deep down.

T- Starts out with a nice brown sugar, a touch of molasses, big green apple skins (especially on the finish), some biscuity notes, also a nice array of warming spices, a great complex yeastiness, and semi tart apple finish.

M- Quite a thin beer given the ABV, also the carbonation is a bit much.

D- This is pretty drinkable beer but not the best belgian strong dark by any means.

Wow, I was surprised by how different this brew was as compared to the others in the family... This one was much smoother and quite frankly much tastier... I didn't detect any booze at all in this...it was more like drinking a big glass of a sweet wheat bread smothered in honey and it was delicious... I was surprised at the mellowness of the brew... It was a perfect nightcap... Highly recommended....

Pours a nice dark golden color with thin tan head.

Smells of a good Belgian with hints of fruit and that trademark Belgian biscuit scent.

Taste is not what I expected, orange peel and lemon zesty. Not much hop character or alcohol.

Mouth is medium bodies with high carbonation and a Dry finish.

Dinkability is sufficient, though I much prefer the other rocheforts.

11.2oz bottle - 060213 12:52 indicated on the bottle. Served in my Chimay goblet at 50 degrees. Gushed off the cap pop before pouring a hazy purplish brown with a vigorous, one inch off-white head which reduced its volume by half in less than a minute before settling into a solid, quarter inch cap. Some arcs of belgian lacing exposed during the tasting with decent legs. Tiny particles evident floating in the brew. Nose was vinous - dark fruit and some yeast. Taste consistent with nose - detected some candi sugar and dark fruit is somewhat muted; slightly herbal/medicinal quality detected at the finish. Mouthfeel fell between light- and medium-bodied and very effervescent (somewhat prickly). Alcohol was well-hidden. I have to say that I was a little dissapointed with this beer. Decent, but I've had better, particularly for the dollar value.

Chilled bottle into a glass.

A: Murky dark amber body. Pours with a finger of off-white head that recedes quickly into a film. Light lacing down the glass.

S: Caramel malt, sour apples, dark plums, and a light floral scent.

T: The dark malt produces caramel and brown sugar flavors. Some bready/biscuity malt is detected, and it reminds me distinctly of ginger snaps. The mid-taste brings to mind sour apples as per the nose, with a floral taste. Alcohol sting and a nutty taste in the finish.

M: Medium-bodied. Well carbonated.

D: An enjoyable brew with complex tastes. But nothing particularly exciting, as I've tasted some comparable greats from American brewers. Not sure it's worth the cost to get this again.

Poured from a bottle I bought in Rochefort Belgium into a glass I bought there too. Anybody jealous yet? The beer is dark amber in color with a rocky off white head. Fast to dissipate an island of bubbles wanders around the glass, now it's the shape of a kidney. The sediment on the bottom sneaks up on you if you aren't prepared for the smaller volume bottle or if you are like me and not paying close attention. My hazed beer has a good amount of floating, suspended particles.

Smell is heavy on the darker stone fruits like cherries and plums. Very nice bread and cereal scents strong on a candied grain nose. Very pleasant as each scent truly compliments the other.

Taste is right there with the nose. Fruity with a subtle yeast taste followed by those fantastic candied sugar coated grains. Strong malt backbone that is nicely complimented by a plum, cherry and raisin notes.

Nicely complex with multiple flavors that work so well with each other. Smooth, slightly dry finish that just adds to my love of this lineup. Wonderfully crisp with a hint of sharp carbonation. Fantastic.

A: Murky almond colored body that's crowned by a billowing, cloud-like head of eggshell white. Belgian lace, not only sounds sexy, is sexy.

S: Muddled fruits, grape, plum, red apple along with taffy, wet ash, and a whiff of dry yeast.

T: Dried fruits with no sugar, plums, pears, apples, and grapes. Musty yeast, sweet salt water taffy, and a glance towards leather.

M: Medium bodied, fairly carbonated, crisp finish.

D: An all around solid beer, classic Belgian, you can't go wrong.

11.2 oz. bottle - $4.99 at Bullock's Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a burnt sienna body with a large, though short-lived, foamy, off-white head.

Smell: Bready, caramelized malt aroma, notes of Pink Lady apples and juicy, overly ripe plums, and with a flowery, perfumy waft of orchids.

Taste: Flavorful, complex maltiness delivers tastes of brown sugar and caramel coated nuts and bread crusts. Pinch of cinnamon. A chew of bubblegum. Bright floral and fruitiness mingled with some sourish yeast hints. Very minor touch of alcohol. Fruity, warming and with a sprinkling of crushed nuts on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well carbonated, a bit prickly at times.

Drinkability: A reasonably complex, enjoyable brew, though, for my tastes, the carbonation was just a bit too high.

Bottle into chalice.

Pours murky brown with a two-finger off-white, pillowy head that stays awhile.

Aroma is understated - spicy yeast, dark fruit, caramelized brown sugar, barest hint of cocoa.

Taste is sweet, up front, a little thin and watery - spicy yeast, cocoa, brown sugar, with dark fruit coming out on the back end alongside the yeast. Finish is bittersweet dark fruits, lingering spicy yeast, cocoa, and a hint of alcohol.

Mouthfeel varies - watery at times, creamy at others, with an understated carbonation that fits well. Excellent beer, but 10 is still my favorite of the trio.

Pours a slightly reddish, mahogany color with a finger and a half of fizzy tan head. Despite its fizzy nature the head does keep quite well, with a full lace all the way to the bottom of the glass. Impressive.

Smell is full of sweet malts, caramel, brown sugar, and molasses. Below the surface are some dark fruits, which do come out a bit more as it warms. There is also a persistent woodsy sort of aroma.

Taste is also pretty sweet but doesn't finish sweet. There is nothing about this that is cloying, in fact, it's somewhat dry in the finish. There is caramel malt, brown sugar and molasses, and also a good deal of dark fruit like the smell. Raisins and prunes come to mind. There seems to be a nuttiness here, as well. It's well balanced and quite smooth, and subtly complex, but it doesn't quite have a 'wow' factor and doesn't quite pop with flavor enough to warrant a higher score.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied but feels a bit thinner than that, and also is hurt by overcarbonation. The fizzy pour didn't lie - it's fizzy in the mouth, too. Still, it has a nice smoothness and finishes quite clean and dry. In fact, it's very drinkable owing to the smooth, balanced flavor.

Overall a very good beer, but not mind blowing. Much better than the 8; now it's on to the 10.

The bottle has a printed expiration date of "240713". I think that means it was bottled on July 24th 2008. Poured from an 11.2 ounce bottle into a flute.

Appearance: Big off-white head. Beautiful mostly clear dark rusty orange. Pretty good carbonation and lacing.

Smell: Really fruity aroma. Mild alcohol in the background. The smell reminds me of Duvel.

Taste: Caramel, dark fruits, yeasty and breadlike. Little bit of alcohol in the finish.
