4.11/5  rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into a Trappistes Rochefort glass. Bottled on 1/2013(if I remember correctly)

A-Straight brown, with a hint of mahogany, and a touch of orange. The head(2 inches thick) was latte like: creamy, tan, white, and the yeast from the bottom of the bottle stuck to the top of the foam, which made it look like cinnamon swirl. Retention was great. A little lace left on the glass.

S-Not a lot going on. I could smell a hint of clove and prunes. Perhaps a little malt. This was the weakest aspect about this beer.

T-This fine Belgium ale tasted like prunes, raisins, bananas, cloves, spices, sweet malt, and brown bread. The aftertaste was slightly sweet from the malt and a little spicy from the hops. As it warmed, there was a taste of caramel malt and a hint of brown sugared banana bread. The cloves and spice didn't cover the alcohol taste. It was definitely apparent throughout consumption. This was a pretty solid Trappist ale.

M-Full-bodied, carbonation on the lower side. It was quite smooth and I am sure it would become better with age. Pretty balanced.

Overall, I enjoyed this beer with some salty peanuts and fresh kettle corn. I would buy this again. I just would have liked more aroma. Cheers to the monks!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

How the hell have I never had these beers? Anyways, I bought all three from the departed, & missed, Petschen's Southview Liquors in South St. Paul, at their going out of business sale. Always sad to see a good neighborhood hole go down to a big chain opening right next door. 11.2 oz. bottle.

The pour is light & fizzy, necessitating a careful pour. Liquid is light brown with orange highlights. Nose is full of sugar-drizzled banana with a side of dark fruits. This smells like a good ice cream shop.

Rochefort 6 is a snapshot of the nose. Big banana notes up front, the fruitiness is stronger & linked up with a good alcohol kick that makes me think the ABV is understated. Underlying malt sweetness kicks in the middle, & a clove-like note (yeast?) smooths out the end. Mouthfeel is the weakest link; feels like someone is shooting a carbonation gun under my tongue each time I take a sip. It's distracting. But the sweetness makes this go down like Kool Aid in a sauna.

I know the beer is legendary, but in this house, this is what we call a good, solid dubbel. Might be the standard that all others are judged against, but we need those waypoints, don't we?

3.76/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Pours almost all head and looks to have excellent retention. Appears I will be waiting for a while. The head is almost a pure cotton white (there is a slight tinge of yellow) while the body is a dark amber with the slightest hint of maroon. It appears as a hazy, medium amber when held up to the light. Some lacing is left behind. Retention isn't as insane as it appeared at first.

Nose- Right now, the bottle and glass are night and day. I get a firm punch of cinnamon followed by raisins from the bottle while the aroma from the glass is pretty much non-existent. Tons of Belgian yeast spice that also has hints of banana and clove but cinnamon seems to override these. Some faint raisin from the glass. Some molasses, caramel, and brown sugar from the bottle. Swirling shows some of these notes from the glass.

Taste- Starts off with definite raisins and moves into caramel blended with a bit of woodiness (mostly oak) as the Belgian yeast flavors begin to begin. As in the aroma, cinnamon is most conspicuous as notes of banana and coriander follow. Slightly phenolic with a bit of bandaid. Seems to lack some of the complexity and presence that I found in Westmalle Dubbel and Prior 8. I have been enjoying dubbels lately but this seems a little thin. Don't get me wrong- it's a solid, good beer but I expect more out of one of the classic Trappist breweries. Slight bubblegum notes. What it lacks in presence, it almost makes up in balance and integration. The Belgian yeast aspects are much more accessible and palatable than in a lot of other Belgian and Belgian style ales. It would seem that this beer is more about subtlety than presence and I think I will have to grade it as such.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with light syrup notes and carbonation that leaves a slight tingle on the tongue, matching the spice notes well.

Drinkability- Incredibly easygoing- this is an example of how this beer is more about sublimity than overwhelming the drinker. However, at the price, I probably won't return to this. (6 bucks for a 330 mL bottle)

Overall- Solid beer from a solid brewery. Gives more range to my conception of the dubbel. Definitely worth a try even if I might not return to this beer for sometime.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

33cl Bottle: BBD 22 Jun 2018, poured carefully into a Westvleteren chalice on 5 Oct 2013, some sediment did join the glass.

The off-white head burst it's way to oblivion fairly slowly and became a wisp and collar half way through the slow tasting. The body a rusty, dusty and cloudy reddy/brown. Carbonation bubbles could clearly be seen through the murkiness rising upwards to the diminishing head.

The aroma teased my senses, fruity notes, Belgian yeasts and long forgotten herbal esters blending together with semi-sweet maltiness.

The taste follows the smells pretty much: a wonderful blend of flavours: fruity, yeasty, malty and herbal with a mild bitterness just below the surface.

A great beer and pushes my appreciation of Rochefort even higher.

"281216" is printed on the bottle.

I pour this one softly and receive a finger of ecru head. This sits on top of a muted cherry brown body. The head dissipates to a ring in a minute or so. Lacing makes a weak attempt at clinging before just dissolving.

Yeast, grass, mild pine and earthy hops are very apparent. Second sniff reveals malt and dark fruit.

Sweet and malty up front, with an almost grape-esque sweetness in the middle. Hops are more mild and earthy than the nose lets on.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied. It does not leave a coating on any part of the mouth.

11.2 oz bottle. Best before 9th of August 2017

Appearance: Pours a dark rusty orange color with 2 fingers of an off white head. Body is hazy with medium carbonation streaming throughout the glass.

Taste: Dark bread, Belgian yeast, lots of dark fruit (raisin in particular), overripe apples. No alcohol presence,

Poured into a goblet. Aged for about 3-4 years.

A- A beautiful cloudy brown. A thick creamy white head lasts throughout.

S- Sweet. Dark fruit and spices.

T- delicious and complex mixing of fruit and spice

M- there's a hint of carbonation that works nicely with the velvety texture.

O- those monks do good work.

4.36/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The beer pours out with a huge foamy head that turns into a creamier one as the beer dissipates. It comes in a murky, dirty rust copper color.

The aroma has super dark ripe banana, roasted plum, dried fig, bready malt, some bready yeast, and a big pop of spice.

The flavor follows with a bit of fruit in the front, the bready malt and Belgian yeast in the middle, then a hit of spice. The finish has tons of carbonation and tons of drying. The end is almost like wine and it cleans everything off the tongue with the drying and hint of alcohol.

Having had 10 and 8, this feels quite like a different animal. 8 is much more fruity and spicy, whereas this has that drying drinkability. A really nice brew.

11.2 fl oz. bottle poured into an Allagash chalice.

A - Pours a ruby-auburn color with an initial three fingers of white head. It dies to about a half finger speckled with brown form the sediment. Significant suspension of floaters become visible when held up to the light. Good lacing along the interior of the glass.

S - Smells of pear, almond, and overripened plum. Some candy belgian yeast, banana, and concord grape contribute to the complexity of fruits in the aroma. Noticeably tart on the nose.

T - The flavors start with the pear and grape I picked up in the nose. The flavors are not as vibrant as I expected. Faint biscuit, raisins, and cherry through the finish.

M - A bit thin with mild carbonation.

O - I was underwhelmed by this beer. The aroma was promising with lots of fruits and classic belgian sugars, but the flavor was weak and lacked complexity. Admittedly this isn't a style I usually enjoy, but I won't be getting this again.

No date I can see, approximately 3 years old.

A: Pours a murky reddish-brown. Big fluffy and fizzy light light brown head. Head fades fast, leaving zero lacing. Almost no retention either.

S: Super sweet and rich candied raisin and fig. Some clove and toffee.

T: Toffee up front with some dull, dried dark fruits. Like old raisins, figs and maybe plums? Interesting, not nearly as sweet as the aroma led me to believe. Some spices into the finish, cloves for sure but some others that I can't quite place. Somewhat dry and abrupt finish with a touch of sweet toffee lingering.

M: Medium bodied, smooth.

O: I'm not a huge fan of dubbels, I generally find them to be oddly bland. This has that same bland character but it's got enough complexity and flavor to rise above. Possibly my favorite dubbel in fact.

A - Huge dark cream head that quickly dissipated, leaving little remaining head; it was a very bubbly disintegration. No lacing until the end of the beer. Beer is a dark brown and opaque from the side (but oddly very clear from the top), with tons of expected yeast floaties.

S - A little sour. Some dark fruit, but not much going on. I expected a much stronger aroma.

T - Very even and smooth. No hint of sourness (except the yeast remnants). Not as sweet as I expected: plum, raisin, candi sugar.

M - Relatively light and extremely drinkable. Coats the mouth very thickly. Medium feel, but light for a Dubbel. No sting or burn.

O - After falling in love with the 10, this wasn't exactly what I expected, but it was very tasty, very good, and very drinkable.

No data on the bottle date.

Poured from 33 cl bottle into a chalice.

A: Hazy, dark amber hue. Pours a 1+ finger, frothy brown white head. Settles slowly, and incompletely. A blanket of foam remains throughout. A little bit of a beer ring.

S: Fresh tea leaf, butterscotch, and wood.

T: Pungent, woody malt grains and prominent butterscotch. A little black licorice in there too.

M: Smooth, malty, and hearty. A little sweet in the front, and bitter in the finish. Kind of buttery feel.

D: Sip and savor.

Atmosphere is pretty solid. Sizable frothy head, and a slight beer ring. Woody with some tea, and butterscotch. Woody malt with plenty of butterscotch and a little bittersweet licorice. Earthy and hearty. Overall, this is a good quaff.

4.31/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark brownish red completely opaque with a foamy white head.

The smell is dark fruits, yeasty and just a touch of earthy hops.

The taste is dark fruits much like the smell, some pepper, and earthy hops. There is also some alcohol on the finish, sweet brandy like. As the beer warms there's a buttery component coming in and some vanilla. Then flavours really open up as the beer reaches room temperature.

The mouthfeel is light and smooth with medium carbonation.

This is a very tasty and complex dubbel, not necessarily my favourite style but I'm glad I got to try this. The alcohol is very present but in my opinion works very well. Upon finishing I notice a lot of clumpy yeast, looks similar to my homebrew, doesn't bother me but might some people.

Now for the 8 and 10.

A-Pours a dark, murky copper brown. Big, pillowy head. Head retention is impeccable. Good lacing too.

S-Sweet caramel and banana notes. Raisins, toffee, Belgian yeast. Smooth and agreeable nose.

T-Boozy raisins and figs dipped in caramel. Sweet vanilla. Light booze. Also lightly spicy. Changes a bit with warmth.

M-Hot and a bit sticky. A sipper. Creamy feel.

O/D-Not really in my wheelhouse. Too sweet. Heats up the cheeks. Always worth trying the classics but I didn't really like this too much.

Poured from bottle into a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer pours a murky copper brown color with a big and billowy cream colored head. The head fades very rapidly leaving only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The smell is a nice mix of dark fruits, some sugary smells and a bit of nut. The dark fruit is of a raisin and plum nature while the sugary smells being more of a caramel and candied sugar nature. The nut is of a nondescript roasted nuttiness and is accompanied by some notes of a more brown bready nature.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter fruit and sugary flavor. As the nose suggested the fruit is of a darker nature with flavors of plum and grape. The sugary taste upfront are of a candied sugar and brown sugar nature. A bit of roasted brown bread is present upfront and through the taste, creating a base for the other flavors to stand on. More toward the middle of the taste, flavors of spice, apple and yeast come to the tongue with the spice being largely of a cardamom nature. At the end, a bit of booziness, some earthiness, and some nut all come to the tongue, with these flavors drying out the taste ever so slightly and creating a rather satisfying fruit flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is rather average in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is slightly above average. Neither were bad for the style, but overall a little more creaminess and a bit less carbonation may have made for a slightly more enjoyable feel for the flavors.

Overall – A tasty and rather enjoyable dubbel. It is renowned for good reason and one to go to from time to time.

A: Hazy muddy dark brown with a tan foam. Almost zero foam retention. Medium high carbonation.

S: Nutty and rich malt. Rich oak and leather. Dark wet tobacco.

T: Rich mahogany and dark roasted walnut and cashew. Medium dark roasted grains. Not roasted so far to have any burnt notes. Black cherry notes with vanilla. Tart, tangy and zesty on the finish; mostly from the high carbonation but also from some of bacterial aging.

M: Full bodied, yet light with the high carbonation finish. A little dry on the finish.

O: Great full flavor profile. I especially like how clean and crisp it finishes. Very good, yet I feel something is missing to make this a great beer.

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

Foggy brownish amber color, almost like a watered down coffee, with a massive off white head that dissapates quickly, leaving no lacing.

Dark fruit, slightly grainy, yeasty with a slight grassy hop aroma. Smells pretty rich and tasty.

Pretty sweet with a super complex flavor of dark fruits, the same grainy malts, a touch of the usual banana yeast. Well balanced and complex, with a taste that changes throughout the sip. Very nice.

Moderately heavy with a pretty light carbonation feel. Very creamy and smooth. Like a light dessert.

Definitely not my favorite in their line (8 and 10 being a couple of my all time favorite beers), but still very good. No alcohol presence detected, and very easy drinking. A warming delight.

Appearance: Pours a fluffy, off white head shaded with crimson of about two fingers that sits atop the rim of the glass. Body is nearly purple.

Aroma: Big, bold, dark fruits. Plums and dates with brown sugar.

Taste: Plum, raisin, with a candy like sweetness. Complex and seems to change constantly as you drink it then vanishes quickly.

Mouthfeel: Awesome, velvety coating with different layers but somehow has a light bodied feel.

Overall: A beer that kind of slips through your fingers in a good way. Very complex with flavors and aromas that present themselves then dissipate quickly

Rochefort 6, the baby brother of the Rochefort series. I've been looking forward to seeing how this one stacks up to the others, Rochefort 8 and 10, a couple of my favorite Belgians. 33 cL bottle into Chimay goblet.

Appearance (4.25/5): Huge towering off-white, 3 finger head. Brown body. Fizzy, tight bubbles, reduces fairly quickly. Doesn't have the head retention of the 8. Head reduces to a very small disc that sits atop the beer.

Smell (4.5/5): Brown sugar, dark fruits, big yeast mustiness, some spice, perhaps clove, pepper.

Taste (4.75/5): classic dubbel flavors with the characteristic Rochefort yeast. Wow. Big raisin-y flavor mixed with the sweet dark bread characteristics beautifully. Brown sugar. Bold yeastiness to it, but not overbearing to my palate. Similar to Westmalle Dubbel. No alcohol to speak of in the flavor. Flavor really opens up as it warms.

Mouthfeel (4.5/5): very smooth, much lighter than either the 8 or (certainly) the 10. Quite pleasant medium carbonation and goes down easy. Great drinkability.

Overall (4.5/5): Rochefort 6 does the name proud. This is one of the best dubbels I've ever had–tons of character, subtle and complex, beautiful to look at and a joy to have slide over the tongue and down the hatch. The 6 puts together the classic components of Belgian Dark Ales–brown sugar and dark fruit flavors, creamy mouthfeel, and a complex yeasty spiciness–in a way that distinguishes it from others. My guess is the house yeast used by Rochefort. Bottom line: excellent beer. Don't die before having one.

Taste: Alcohol, biscuits, some honey, and pepper.
Mouthfeel: Quite carbonated.

This brew is savory. It has a peppery smell and taste that is warming. Interestingly, the alcoholic smell calms a bit as the drink warms. Sadly, the drink continues to mellow and almost takes on a watery taste as the cold leaves it. Don't get me wrong, this is a great drink. However, it's one of the few that I've enjoyed more when it was colder. I would probably get this again...well, I would probably get the 8 or the 10 before this any day.

Cherry amber with piles of pink-tinged tan froth that settles to film that sticks with a steady stream of trailers up the middle.
Wax, dough, flowers, stone fruit, slight barnyard tang and fresh herbs on the nose - deep and complex.
Cherry scone, cinnamon, golden raisins, unripe red plum and yellow apple, a touch of wax, then clove and star anise to end.
Apple skin finish and numbing Canada mint linger.
Light to medium, fizzy, a bit of heat, creamy, crisp.

Great nose, and orchard fruit notes are there, but all a bit understated. Residual sugars give it nice body as it opens, managing to be both smooth and crisp. Not as big as the Achel nor as deep as the Westmalle, though maybe more drinkable for it. In balance, though I don't note any particular hop character.

Buckeye is right (no shock there) in that this is a lighter example of the style (no figs), but very well done for that.

Just a solid dubbel. I had this back to back with St Bernadus Pater 6. I like the St Bern a little more just based on the mouthfeel. This beer is great no doubt. Just a little weak on the finish. A little too, well little. It washes out at the end.

That being said, I would drink again at the drop of a hat. Tasty tasty beer.

I gotta get over to Belgium. Stat
