A very appealing deepamber color body. White one inch head retained a few minutes before breaking down to a nice coating on the top. Tons of small carbonation bubbles. Wispy lacing coats glass all the way down.

Aroma invites the nose to dive into the glass. A very nice scent of fresh bread is pleasent. Very easy to also note scent of plums, and red grapes. A very light alcohol hint helps warm the aroma to the nose.

Very nice taste improves on the scent. The bready characteristics in the aroma are present in the taste. A nice blend of rich fruits finishes with a change to light citrus taste. Tastes like eating a plum and adding just a hint of lemon rind in at the end. Light notes of alcohol give this just a right amount of bite.

A very decent thickness to be found in this beer. A huge burst of carbonation tingles on the tongue.

A very nice offering. This is a must add to my dark ale roster. I would pair this with a nice roasted pork loin and gravy for a Sunday dinner. If you can get your hands on this, do.

This brew poured a very envigorated large creamy head of fine off-white bubbles that left a good lacoing and a carbonated cloudy yeasty opaque brown body. Its flavor is comparatively complex like its bretheren the 8 and the 10, but it is much thinner. The flavors of roasted malt and spices and in there just like its kin, but not as silky smooth as the 8 and with less bite than the 10. Still, an excellent brew!

Pours a really nice red/orange color with a huge tan head. Really nice looking beer.

Smell is of malt, yeast, and a bit of spice, mainly a hint of clove and coriander.

Big amount of fruit up from, mainly citrus notes. That is followed by a peppery spice, bit of cloves, hint of orange peel. I am also detecting a bit of Belgian candy sugar, and it finishes with a hint of pepper.

Smooth and creamy feel to this.

Another very nice Trappist beer. Has a lot of flavor and a decent amount of complexity, I could easily drink more of this, but I only have one bottle. I love Trappist beers, and this one is no exception.

Poured from a 11.2oz bottle into a tulip.

A: pours a deep brown with a slightly ruby hue, with an aggressive finger and a half of slightly brown head. Settles to a 3/4 finger head that remains through out.

S: the aroma is remarkable subtle and remarkably pleasing at the same time. Light dark fruits, particuarly rasin, brown sugar, light citrus sweetness, apple. Very nice.

T: yum, this is really tasty, taste is much like I described in the aroma, a nice bright citrusy sweetness, brown sugar, caramel, some light notes of dark fruit, an almost cherry note, a bit more apple then i got in the aroma. very delicious

M: light medium body with moderate effervescent carbonation, nice lush mouthfeel.

O: this is a great beer, well rounded, delicious, great mouthfeel, can't ask for much more.

330 ml bottle, 15.05.07.
Pours a murky, muddy, brown with a long lasting two finger reddish brown head.
Aroma is fruity, nutty, raisin, toffee, a little mashed banana, and a light wisp of alcohol.
Medium body with prickly carbonation.
Flavor is bready, toffee, sugar, a little winey, and a little woodiness.
Finish is dry and a little tannic.

Purchased a bottle at Julio's Liquors in Westborough, MA.

A: Dark amber. Opaque. Topped with an off white head.

S: Perfumy. Malty with a significant bready/toast character. Dark fruit esters are noticeable. Something seems off here - might be the extreme toastiness of the malt. Some mineral aromas.

T: Malty sweet. Dark fruit esters. Some alcohol flavors that are perfumy. Very rich. Some bready malt flavor and toastiness but does not come nearly through as much as it did in the nose.

MF: Low carbonation for a dark strong ale. Very noticeable alcohol warmth. A medium full mouthfeel.

D, notes: This beer grew on me as I drank it. Very malty and rich with significant alcohol warming, which adds to its drinkability.

A - Slightly murky reddish brown with a big, long lasting, fluffy off-white head. Lots of lacing.

S - Pilsner malt candy sweetness, fruity plum-like esters. Lite caramel.

F/M - Sweet pilsner, plums, coriander, earthy hops. Medium bitterness with a very dry finish. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Kinda prickly on the tongue.

D - Great drinkability. So complex yet it finished so clean and dry. I could put down several of these in a sitting if it weren't so damn expensive.

Sampled at the 2004 Pizza Port Belgian Beer Festival in beautiful downtown Carlsbad.

Beer arrives in the glass a dry and dusty looking chocolate brown with a tall white crispy head that falls back to the beer fairly quickly.

The aroma is nutty with a drying spice a little like the aroma kicked up by a blind handed stumble through the spice cabinet.

Flavor is deeply grainy at first before being replaced with a dry cocoa powder and cinnamon sensation. (think bitter cold hot chocolate).

This dryness quickly becomes the primary sensation as the beer leaves teh palate. It makes a man thirst for his next sip!

Poured to a chalice.

A: The body is copper to red with brown hues with a white minimal head that shows a lot of retention and lacing.
S: The aroma has tons of wild berries, specifcally blueberries and blackberries. It's a very soft aroma because you can smell the malts and a bit of alcohol, too much actually, in here.
T: The taste runs sweetness from malts, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, toffee, roasted malts. Most of the flavors don't connect perfectly but they're very good.
M: Body is medium to medium high. Carbonation is excessive. Bitterness in the end a bit strong for a dubbel.
O: Finally, the Trappistes Rochefort trio is over! This fight to find number 6 is over with a bit underwhelming feeling. 8 and 10 are one the best beers from their styles but 6 lacks something.
