[Best served in a Trappist glass]

The pour was a murky medium chestnut brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light tan head that quickly diminished to a thin cap, which in turn created some excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a dark bread malt and a sweet Belgian yeast with notes of toffee, a plethora of dark fruit (cherries, plums raisons and figs) and a mild alcohol tinge.

The taste was a mild malty sweet with a good toffee note early on, then becoming a bit yeasty with a big note of dark fruit and a pronounced alcohol finish. The flavor however was short lived fading quite quickly proceeding the swallow, with the fruity yeasty alcohol taste disappearing in what seemed like a matter if seconds.

Mouthfeel was somewhere in the middle of light and medium in body with a slightly dry and a bit watery texture and a soft to medium carbonation.

Overall this is a very well put together Belgian Ale, although this one is a tad lighter than the Trappistes 8 & 10 from this brewer. Now don't get me wrong, I truly think they are all exceptional brews...

330ml bottle, trappist night at the house 6-8-10 consumed sequentially

appearance: all of the rocheforts have fantastic pours - the 6 is a deep chestnut color, creamy tan head with strong retention

smell: doughy and sweet, toffee, dark fruit

taste: really fantastic stuff - bright and sweet dark fruits, fig, brown sugar, sweet toffee, caramel, red apple, dark cherries, candied orange. A really impressive beer - worth the extra effort to track down, as most stores seemed to be out of stock

mouthfeel: rich medium body, velvety

overall: great stuff - preferred over the 8, and very close to the 10

11.2oz Bottle from Whole Foods Las Vegas for 5$

Appearance - Hazy brown colour with an average size fizzy beige coloured head. It's too hazyto make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for 4-5 minutes.

Smell - Malts, breads/grains, raisins, corn

Taste & Mouth - There is a high amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, grapes/raisins, and some corn. There is also some caramel and a bit of a woodiness. It ends with a malty dark fruit aftertaste,

Overall - A light and very drinkable beer given the ABV. It might be just a touch too carbonated but the tastes are well balanced and you can taste the quality ingredients. The Rochefort 10 is still my favourite by a mile though.

Best before 2015.

This thing looks amazing. Deep mahogany body. Slightly off white ring fed by a steady stream of bubbles.

Smell is loaded with sweet dried cherries. Booze laden dry cherries. Sweet in the best way. smells almost slick.

I was hoping for a syrupy sweet, slick, boozy BDSA, but it wasnt. It starts off with a peppery belgian yeast. Full bodied, yet not full of flavor. Its a mild beer for sure. I do get some nice semi sweet dark fruits later (mostly cherries) a bit later.

All in all, a fantastic beer that still has room to improve!
