COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle at RBESG 2014 Grand Tasting. It pours hazy amber-brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet red berry, caramel, candy, caramel and brown sugar. The taste is caramel, candy, cola, wood, booze, dirt and leather with a hot, alcohol finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Hot, sweet and pretty one-dimensional.

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.
