Reviewed as part of BJCP training. 24B Belgian Dubbel. Best before 3/21/2022

Pours a smaller fizzy bubbly off-white head that retains fairly well, very little lacing and legs, a little hazy iced-tea tan-copper color with mild sediment, seems like it has some age on it

Nose quite fruity to start, dark cherries, some raisin, behind that is the rich complex malts, a little caramel and candi sugar, light toast, generic fruit esters as well, phenols kick in with mild baking spices, very light alcohol

Taste more rich complex malts, toasty and a little bread crust, caramel and candi sugar but not too sweet, lots more fruit again, candied cherries, raisin, and mild generic ester fruits maybe pome like, phenols kick in with a mild smooth alcohol, perfumey note with mild spices again, touch peppery spicy like, malts are more aged almost vinous like, with a touch of bitterness, med drier finish that kicks in a bit more with warming alcohol and spicy phenols, alcohol gets a little hot, long lingering fruits

Mouth is med to fuller bod, nice higher carb, almost makes the body seem a little lighter, some warming mild hotter alcohol, not quite solventy but starting to get towards that

Overall a really nice dubbel, so much awesome fruit, nice complex malts although I wish the malts were a little more up front but could be age as this seems to have, alcohol also seems to get a little hot which says lesser age, so interesting nonetheless

Cloudy, brownish-orange body with a thick, frothy head. Fruity, caramel aroma; peach; raisins. Sweet flavors; candi sugar and caramel; brown sugar; figs. Medium-heavy body; smooth, warm and velvety; initial sweetness to mouthfeel yet finishes dry.

A nice dubbel, warm and inviting with a nice, rustic sweetness.

I agree with the herbal spice sort of like ginger maybe, some dark fruits notes, mild coffee note, mild banana note. It's a decent beer, but I do like the Rochefort 8 more. Cheers! B-

Pours a semi-translucent caramel brown with a beige finger of frothy white head. It settles at about a quarter inch, with heavy amounts of lace clinging to the glass.

The nose on this is great, with lots of caramel, dark fruit (specifically raisin), and a brandy booziness to round it out. Balanced, not too sweet, very good.

More of the same in the flavors. I’d read tamarind citrus in other reviews and honestly that’s spot on. A subtle herbal spice gives that citrus flavor just a hint of a kick that really does emulate tamarind candy. Malt, bread crust, Brandy, and caramel flavors round it out.

Smooth, full-bodied. Bready and boozy, with a very mild stickiness and warming feel going down.

Slightly hazy amber, with substantial off-white head

First thing I smell ...whoa! … zapped by boozy, brandy-ish aroma that knocks me back(age?) and puts a sharp twang in my right nostril. Then a mix of dried prune + raisin, and a bit of steamy-just-out-of-the-oven multi-grain bready aroma.

Taste is similar to the aroma, with the dried fruit flavor being most prominent. Tamarind, minus the tartness , is probably the closest approximation, + a little raisin, bread crust in the background, a tiny bit of boozy/brandy flavor, and finishing with some light lingering bitterness.

Feel is light-medium , very slightly oily, with moderate, very fine carbonation throughout.

Overall, quite good, and a pleasure to drink.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into an oversized wine glass; a smallish quickly dissipating head formed over a reddish brown body. Aroma of malty raisins which the taste mirrored. Mouthfeel was unexpectedly zesty with more carbonation on the front end than anticipated. Maybe after being inundated with tripels and quads through the years, this is a refreshing lighter alternative and evaluated on its terms.

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

330ml bottle (best before 03/11/2021) poured into a snifter at 55°F.

L: Dark amber color with tan head that didn't last long. Fairly clear color.
S: Raisin, plum, toast.
T: Sweet malt base. The raisin flavor is there but hiding in the background to the malt.
F: Medium body with good carbonation.
O: A fine double, but hard to get excited about it. I would like a bit more of the dark fruit flavors to shine through. When compared to the Rochefort 8 and 10, this feels like a diluted version of those beers so given a choice I can't imagine a scenario where I'd prefer to choose the 6 from the lineup.

I once had an opportunity to spend a weekend in Belgium and my one regret was not getting to visit a Trappist brewery. In a local store, I happened upon bottles of the three Trappistes Rochefort beers and bought all three. The first I sampled was the 6. It poured nicely into a glass leaving a nice head. The head did not last very long and there was little to no lacing on the glass. My first taste took me back to Belgium. I would not say this is the best beer I have had; but it ranks near the top. You can definitely detect the alcohol, but it is not offensive or off putting. The carbonation is light and refreshing. A thoroughly enjoyable beer.

The beer is a dark caramel color and has a bubbly head that thinned out. Aromas of the malts, dark fruits, and a slightly boozy. Mild flavors of dark fruits, bananas, and sweet breads. Nice carbonation and you get a slight feel of the booze.

Reddish brown, thick white head. Dark, fruit aroma. Dark, bready, fruity body. Slight tanginess. Medium body, good mouthfeel. Sweet but not overly sweet at first, though it becomes a problem if you're drinking too much of it.
