Rookop is a brown, top-fermented ale that is not sweet, with coffee in the flavour and a fine, mild bitterness. Rookop used to be brewed in the St-Joris brewery in Reningelst, Belgium until 1963 when the brewing activities stopped. The brewery was restored back to its original condition in 2012 and now functions as a meeting centre for families with children. We were asked to bring this famous beer back to life. Since the original recepy could not be recovered, a brand new beer was developed.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2014
250 ml bottle at home, poured into a tulip. ABV 6.5% Dark brown pour, with a tall and thick brown head sitting on top, with okay retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Very nice aroma, very fruity, mostly dark fruits, also some ripe pears. A bit of caramel too, nuts, chocolate malts. Nice taste too, basically following the aroma, fruity, sweet, some caramel and a bit of spices and yeast. Medium thin body, carbonation on good levels. Sticky palate. Overall quite good.

One of many Belgian dark beers. Sweetish, coffeeish and a subtle bitterness.

Abio (1550) - Waasland, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2013
Dark brown beer, a big head, but maybe could hold some longer. Slightly smoked, coffee, and bittering malts. Not bad at all, but it misses an extra boost.

Think that I picked this up from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at home, Sunday 10th November 2013 Pours dark brown with a soft creamy textured beige head. To me this tastes not unlike a smaller brother of Rochefort 8, very moreish, very easy drinking, some chocolate, its a little bit fruity, enjoyable, very enjoyable. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6
