Look -4.5 - Dark amber/brown color, just off white head. Slightly hazy. Ruby highlights. No lacing.
Smell - 4 - Smells of fruit and bread. plum, raisin, fig, tart cherry, bread and yeast notes coming through with a subtle bitter smell.
Taste - 4.25 - Follows the nose with fruit and bread flavors that wash over the pallet. Raisin sweet, cherry tartness, candied/dried plum and fig. Slight hop bitterness that compliments the sweet. Wine like finish with red fruit tannin/bitterness. A sour cherry finish.
Feel - 4.25 - High carbonation, medium to medium high body. Smooth around the edges despite the high carbonation. Alcohol is warming progressively but not intrusive.
Overall - 4.25 - A beer that is complex and very drinkable. Is most definitely to style. A Pleasure to drink but IMO, amped up a little bit. While it wasn't my favorite beer it is a wonderfully crafted beer with complexity to please my pallet. Would not order a second pint, partly because of the strength and just not my personal preference of style.

Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and smooth with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really great dubbel.

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.

This one has it all.... A wonderful bready, malty, yeasty body... Apples and figs and apricots dance around the edges. Finishes with hint of tartness.... Wonderful! Starts with a nice 2 finger head, with some lacing. The carbonation is high and finishes with a zip. This one is for sipping on a cool or warm day. Any day.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Burnt orange / brown color, light brown head
Smell: Dark fruit, yeast, hint of honey and alcohol
Taste: Big on sweet fruity (raisin, plum) and bready malts. Brown sugar, hint of floral hops, spice
Feel: medium body, fairly carbonated, smooth

Overall a very well balanced Dubbel. Sweetness masks the alcohol flavor.
