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.

sebletitje (9075) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2013
Bouteille 25cl. Premier abord, ne paie pas de mine, mais une petite perle. Cuivrée, col épais et crémeux beige. Arôme je note un léger malté caramel, grillé avec qcq effluves de café et une note très subtile de fumé. Palais est léger, malté, pointe de fumé, léger chocolaté, café-grillé avec une petite note aigre en toute fin de bouche mais qui n’enlève rien à la bière. ce côté légèrement torréfié subsiste en fin de bouche.

Douberd (4752) - 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.

bartlebier (3347) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 75cl bottle from Poperingse Bierfestival 10/2014, brewed 05/2014. Dark acajou-brown pour with again a luscious cap. Rich earthy aroma of caramel roast, bread crust, fragrant fresh bread, an inkling of strawberry and meadow hops. Taste is a well-balanced mix of all that, surprisingly dry and rich. Popering hop bite with great character in the finish. Nice Flemish Dunkel!

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
