Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a coppery brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains apples, Belgian yeast, caramelized malts, some spice and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with mildly sweet flavors of caramel, apples, brown sugar and some spice. Then some breadiness from Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character comes in. The hops presence is very mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium-to-high carbonation, slightly sticky finish.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent Belgian beer, but I didn’t think it was anything special.

dark, mahogany brown, little head.
i'm getting no smell whatsoever from this glass. maybe it's my nose? how do i rate it if i cannot smell it?
taste is.... a little sweet, some nice malt. earthy. tad bitter at the end.
overall, this is another of my all time favorites. i love the smoothness, the ease it goes down, and the flavors i get with it while getting a nice, higher abv feel....
at the end, i could smell what was left in the glass. and i liked that, so i gave it a similar 4.5....

Had the 8 version the other day, and am sampling this 6 version tonight. Head is less dominant and lasting than on the 8 version. This one does pour darker however - orange brown.

On the nose - sweetness, oranges - very inviting.

Taste is modest and light. Oranges, light chocolate, iced tea, toasted notes.

A healthy amount of carbonation. This I'm finding to somewhat distract from the taste. Somewhat of a seltzer water sensation. Balanced with a creaminess as well.

Anxious to sample the 10 version from this series which is in the queue.

A: Very good. Some particulates. Proteins maybe. Nice copper color.

S: Candy caramel. Really a treat. I like this better than the 8. Surprises me.

T: So nice. Sweet but not cloying. Very well cut by alcohol. Will be very very good with meat dish.

M: Very smooth finish, very fun.

O: Excellent beer.

Pours murky copper beer with excellent, absolutely resistant fizzy off-white head. Rich aroma of yeasts, caramel, toffee & dark fruits. Very good flavour, quite similar to aroma: fruity, zesty, not very sweet, of course, lighter than other Rocheforts. Good carbonation, full body.
