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

A: Giant creamy 4 finger head over a chestnut brown and tawny brew. After the head subsides I can see a number of small eruptions of new bubbles that stream up, suggesting a higher carbonation.

S: The smell is sweet toffee and caramelized sugars with nutty earthiness. Notes of golden raisins spiced with cloves. Yeasts and sweet grapes and plum juice suggestive of wine.

T: Minerals and herby notes, juniper, thyme and other dried herbs. Yeast and dry biscuits with malts and dark fruits following up the rear. Could stand in for an aperitif with the medicinal and herb flavours, but the end notes of yeast and malts balance the flavours and leave a noticeable alcohol heat.

M: Carbonation burst up front like a soda pop with sharp tingles on the tongue and some lingering bubbles mid palate. Medium bodied, but with big carbonation.

O: A unique brew with the herbs and medicinal qualities becoming much more noticalbe as it warms. It's a sipper and a terrific stand in for an aperitif. The carbonation compliments the herbal flavours well, and lends to the mineral flavours. Overall it's a unique drink and one unparalleled by anything else I've tried.

This pours a murky brown color with a decent beige head. There is a fair amount of sweet malts in the scent with yeast and citrus. The taste is sweet, smooth, and flavorful. There is the taste of sugar, plums, and other hints of fruit in the flavor as well. Well made, complex, yet very simple. Glad to see a brewery that concentrates on just 3 beers and makes them to perfection.

I simply fell in love for the Rochefort 6 - an inviting aroma, but a vigorously carbonated taste. I was ready to come up with criticism if necessary, but in the end I had a joyful experience that will definitely be repeated and, in fact, expanded with other Trappist beers.

From the 330 ml. bottle marked 080915-10:20. Sampled on January 16, 2013.

The pour is a handsome looking medium to dark amber/brown with a light tan head and a significant amount of yeast sediment floating around the glass.

The aroma is quite an array of scents including malts, yeast, prune, plum, raisin, fig, and toffee.

The body is about medium and smooth.

The taste is much like the aroma with sweet barley malts, dark fruits, and a roasted finish. This is an enjoyable beer.

11.2oz bottle poured into a snifter. Have had this numerous times, but never took the time to review it.

(A)- Pours a dark brown hue with ruby red highlights. Produced a fantastically huge cap of tan froth. Superb retention behind it with good lacing once it finally dissipated.

(S)- A lively yeast in this. A combination of dry biscuit, bubble gum, plum, grape, and very subtle lemon and banana.

(T)- Very similar to the smell. Very vibrant dark fruits combined with dry biscuit-like yeast notes. It really works well together as it is fairly complex.

(M)- A higher carbonation level with a great balance to it. Fruity, but combined well with the yeast profiles to make a harmonious but complex feel that is almost creamy smooth too in the middle.

(O)- Overall, a superb Dubbel. Nothing out of place; fitting the style perfectly. Easily one of the best that unfortunately gets overlooked by the rarer examples.
