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.

erickok (5469) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2016
Brown, pretty clear, large beige head. Toast, butterscotch, salty caramel, cake, coffee liquor. Hard roasty taste, quite dry actually. Not the typical Belgian dubbel. I enjoyed it. (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels)

corkyrory66 (1434) - BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2015
Brune basique de 6,5 %, refermentée, mettant l’accent sur le fumé – si l’on s’en tient à son nom. Couleur brun roux, et roux en transparence. Bulles fines en colonne centrale, et quelques extérieures, vivantes. Mousse beige caramel, bien crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, haricots blancs, pointe de fumée, de ciboulette et noisette. 1ère bouche douce sur l’écorce fumée, fanes sèches de pommes de terre, pointe de muscade. Arrière-bouche pas très riche, un peu fade. 2ème avec quelques belles nuances, mais trop faible. Arrière-bouche peu maltée, assez courte. 3ème sur malt noir, pointe de fumée, mais pas d’équilibre. Arrière-bouche aqueuse. Longueur très faible, manque d’harmonie de l’ensemble. Jambes lisses, faiblement marquées. Levure douce, faible. Alcool sans efficacité sur les saveurs. Finale banale. CONCLUSION : en-dehors du format déplorable (25 cl !!), cette bière est vraiment simple et fruste. Juste quelques petites notes positives !!
