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.

Kosmokrator (764) - - JUL 24, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2015 Limpido color ambra scura con un sottile velo di schiuma biancastra poco persistente. Aroma con sentori di toffee e frutti di bosco (fragole in primis) e più leggere note di lievito; gusto dolciastro, fruttato e leggermente speziato con note di zucchero caramellato nel finale. Di corpo medio, morbida ma non eccessivamente "spessa" e poco effervescente. La ricordavo un po’ più intensa, ho dei dubbi sulla qualità della bottiglia aperta; da riprovare.

TheHopster (1000) - 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 (25) - 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 (169) - 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.

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.

varanid99 (834) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2016
Murky brick red pour with a thin beige head. Dried fruit and a fantastic deep caramel, toffee, buttery aroma. Taste is toffee, dry, spicy, plummy, slightly boozy. As it warms up there’s a lot more dried fruit and warm, biscuity notes

adasko (1354) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 17, 2016
Highly over carbonated while pouring. Slightly hazy, beautiful golden color beer. Pleasant fruity and malty aroma. In taste typical belgian strong ale, but very high quality. Not even tiny note of alcohol in taste, just warming all the way down. Super smooth, perfectly carbonated in the mouth. Really good, top class quality beer.
