My First Trappist

Tasting Notes

Trappistes Rochefort 6

I thought the color on this beer was just gorgeous. A dark brown, almost reddish color.

The nose a bit fruity, yeasty, and a little hot (spicy?… it may have just been the alcohol burning my nostrils).

Taste: Mellow, easy drinking. From the nose I was expecting a wider array of flavors thought it has great balance and a very nice body/mouth feel. Some sweetness that cuts through the dark fruit & maltyness. Love the yeasty undertones as well. Slight alcoholic finish.

Very dark, clean ruby red color. Very Small, Tan head.

Smells like dark fruits, warm, and you can see the alcohol… a lot 😀

Taste: Fruity/Estery, Burnt, malty, sweet, again, nice body with spice. Alcohol finish but not in a bad way. It seems to meld with the other flavors. Probably that of the yeast. A little spicy at first, but it goes well/disappears with the other flavors. Very easy to drink…

This beer is just dark!

The nose on this one is highly alcoholic, a bit of ripe fruit (I need to figure out what ripe/dark fruits these are).

Taste: Strong Dark fruit flavor, very malty, and almost a burnt caramel taste. It seems to have a thick mouth feel, but not overpowering at all. Melds together quite well. Scary how drinkable it is.
