Rochefort are top-fermented, bottle-conditioned beers, brewed within the Saint-Rémy Abbey in Rochefort, Belgium. A dark 'double' style ale, dry and surprisingly easy drinking. Abbaye de Rochefort 6 has a light citrus fruit taste, gently warmed, with some bittersweet orange notes and a hint of brown sugar.
The aroma is warming with hints of raisins, prunes, spicy yeast, earthy tones, and the most prevalent, light chocolate. The taste is full and rich like a brown ale, but was not heavy on the palate. The carbonation adds to the light mouthfeel, yet the 7.5% ABV lets you know that this brew has some body.
