WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Iconic Trappist Dubbel
Trappistes Rochefort 6 by Brasserie de Rochefort / Abbaye Notre-Dame de Saint-Rémy
BJCP 18B Belgian Dubbel, ABV 7.5%, IBU 18, EBC 40, OG 17.5°P
To my mind this defines a Trappist Dubbel. The first mouthful reveals the lightest touch of coriander which skilfully livens up the richness of the malt. Although Rochefort use their own yeast, it is still reminiscent of Chimay and without the stronger phenols of Westmalle yeast - a good compromise. My first encounter with this brew but hopefully many more to come - if I could brew something similar I'd be a happy man.
An all time favourite
More difficult to find than Rochefort's 8 or 10, the 6 is apparently brewed to much the same recipe as its higher ABV siblings but lacks none of their character. Phenols balance the malt more than in other Trappist dubbels and the lower alcohol content means I don't fall asleep as quickly as I do with a 10. Recommended if you're looking for something not as voluptuous as most Belgian dubbels.
Mild alcohol nose. Dense head and viscous, smooth mouthfeel. Stonefruit finish. Easy drinking for 7.5% ABV.
Monks made this... how can it not be incredible!
From the Belgian foothills to the shelves of North Sydney, it's great to see Rochefort for sale here. Set your palate free and give this one a try!
