Rochefort – Trappistes 6

Aroma – Malty, caramel smells mixed in with a subtle hint of prunes.  You notice the alcohol in the aroma too.

Appearance – Dark dark copper in colour, and very hazy.  Well carbonated, but not much head formation.

Flavour – This follows on from the aroma closely, strong malt and caramel notes, accompanied with a complex fruitiness – prune/cherry type flavours abound.  This is all followed up by a warming alcohol taste.

Mouthfeel – Noticable alcohol warmth, light/medium-light bodied and well carbonated which gives a tingle on your tongue.

Overall – Rich and complex – nice.

Would I buy more? – It’s not blown me away, but I would happily buy/drink another one.  But I think I could only drink one of these of an evening.
