This beer, the oldest of the three Rochefort Trappist beers, has the reddish colour of autumn leaves, a soft body and an earthy, herbal palate (a hint of Darjeeling tea), which develops into a deep fruitiness.

Foffern (1614) - Bodø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle. The color is hazy reddish brown with a big beige head. Aroma of dried fruit, brown sugar, leather, wood and some cocoa. The flavor mirrors the aroma with a small addition of alcohol. Slick and soft mouth feel, full-bodied and has light bitterness. A nice, well-balanced and sweet classic.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - FEB 17, 2016
Colore ambrato carico con una bella schiuma crema. I sentori sono di caramello e frutti rossi, con un alcolico che richiama alla frutta sotto spirito. In bocca il corpo medio e la lieve carbonazione fanno il resto, mantenendo sempre un filo conduttore con il dolce dei malti.

TheHopster (1032) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2016
(330ml bottle) Pours a murky amber complexion with persistent head that almost lasts through the finish. Mild aroma of Belgian yeast, fresh air and faint fruit. The flavor is dried fruits, mild malt and Belgian yeast. A classic for this style. My 1000 rating on RB! So happy to participate on this great site and contribute to a truly worldwide democratic rating of beer.

Zilb (87) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - FEB 7, 2016
Odeur de chocolat au lait dans un 1er temps. Robe brune très pâle et brumeuse. Mousse fine qui ne tient pas.En bouche, très carbonée et fluide. Pas d’amertume, très très douce. Chocolat, malts légèrement grillés. Très bonne ! Bue avec Jacky et un bœuf bourguignon maison.

Rask0lnikov (505) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 2, 2016
Pale hazy brown colour. Steady medium head. Caramel in the aroma. Some malts and caramel at first. Flowery taste in middle. Sweet and caramelly finish. Well balanced, but not really interesting beer. Well balanced though. And well drinkable.

Padchenko (229) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 26, 2016
Pours dark amber with medium white head. Medium bitterness. Subtle aroma. Not a strong flavour but a nicely balanced barley and hops. Some fruity sweetness.
