Abbaye des Rocs Blanche des Honnelles (Blanche Double)
330 bottle at home in Richmond as ’Abbaye des Rocs Blanche des Honnelles’, 6%, 2001 vintage. Translucent orange, still with a fizzy head that dies to nothing immediately. Aroma is oxidised with apple and sherry, stewed rhubarb. Body is a little frothy with soft carbonation. Taste is wheaty, coriander, some white pepper, tangerine. At 15 years old, I was really expecting this to be a drain pour. But it’s a tasty, citrussy little number with some carbonation. Has held up really well. Surprisingly good and I drank the entire bottle no problem.

Abbaye des Rocs Speciale Noel
Punertavanruskea olut paksulla, pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Hiivaa kaatuu lasiin pullon pohjalta aika reilu annos. Tuoksu on houkutteleva, jouluisen makea ja syvän siirappinen ja mämminen. Maun osalta ensimmäisenä aistii karamellisen/sokerisen makeuden. Paahteisuus ja makea lakritsisuus hallitsee tämän jälkeen maussa. Vahvasti kermaisen maltainen maku houkuttelee maistamaan lisää. Hiilihappoa on vain aavistuksen verran. Jälkimaussa pientä mausteisuutta ja katkeroa tasapainottamassa laadukasta kokonaisuutta. Alkoholi on piilossa ja tämä on yllättävän helppoa juotavaa. Voisiko runko olla vielä aavistuksen tukevampi. Joka tapauksessa todellinen laatuolut ja tällaisia jouluoluita pitäisi saada Alkoon.

Abbaye des Rocs La Montagnarde (Ambree)
Samea punertavankellertävänruskea olut innokkaalla, mutta aika nopeasti häviävällä vaahdolla. Hiivapartikkeleita kaatuu lasiin todella paljon oluen mukana. Tuoksu houkuttelevan hedelmäinen ja karamellinen sekä hiivainen ja mausteinen. Todella moniulotteinen. Maku jatkaa tuoksun linjalla. Ensialkuun hedelmäinen ja karamellinen, loppupuolella yrttisen mausteinen ja hieman katkeran kuivattava. Täyteläinen suutuntuma, mutta kiva hiilihappoisuus keventää tunnelmaa. Voisi toimia myös lämpimämmillä keleillä, mutta hieno tekele näin tammihelmikuun vaihteeseenkin.

Pulloa avatessa olut ryöppyää ulos pullosta hirveällä tahdilla. Lasiin päädyttyään paksu vaahto häviää kuitenkin nopeasti ja jättää vain aavistuksen pienen vaahtoreunuksen. Tummanruskea olut. Tuoksu todella houkutteleva, suklainen, tummaa hedelmää ja luumua. Maku maltaisen makea ja pehmeä, tumman hedelmäinen kokonaisuus. Täyteläinen olut pitkällä maltaisen makealla suun täyttävällä jälkimaulla. Runsas hiilihappoisuus pehmentää kokonaisuutta tyylikkäästi. Todellinen taideteos.

Abbaye des Rocs Brune
Hieman punertava, keskiruskea hieman samea olut. Vaahtoa aika vähän ja sekin vähä häviää hyvin nopeasti käytännössä kokonaan. Todella paljon isoja hiivapartikkeleita kaatuu pullosta jo puolessa välissä lasiin. Tuoksu hyvin maltainen, mämminen, rusinainen ja makea. Maku myös makean maltainen ja luumuinen. Loppupuolella makuun tulee pientä kuivuutta ja mausteisuutta. Täyteläinen, mutta hiilihappoisuus keventää tunnelmaa kivasti. Ei ihan pärjää parhaille Abbaye des Rocsin tekeleille. Edit. Tämä ensi kuussa "vanhaksi menevä" pullo on ulkonäöltään aiempaa kauniimpi. Vaahtoaa reilummin ja samettisemmin. Ulkonäkö 3->4 ja samalla kokonaispisteet 40->41

Abbaye des Rocs La Nounnette (Blonde)
Pullossa lukee Blonde, mutta Ratebeerin mukaan kyse samasta tuotteesta kuin La Nounnette. Samean kullankeltainen olut niukalla, pienen pitsireunuksen jättävällä vaahdolla. Lasissa leijailee todella runsaasti hiivapartikkeleita. Tuoksu todella monimuotoinen ja houkutteleva, makean omenainen ja kukkaisen maltainen. Maku omenainen, makeahko, kiva humalan puraisu. Raikas olut keskitäyteläisellä suutuntumalla. Jättää makean maltaisen jälkimaun. Kuitenkin aika hiilihappoinen ja kuiva loppujen lopuksi. Laatutuote jälleen Abbaye des Rocsilta, josta on vaivihkaa tullut oma lempipanimo.

Abbaye des Rocs Triple Impériale
(6.3.2015) Samea punertavanruskea, tripleliksi varsin tumma olut todella suurella hiivapartikkeleiden määrällä höystettynä. Valkoista vaahtoa kiva parin sentin kerros tulppaanilasissa, mutta hiivojen pyöriminen ympäri lasia ei tee oluesta kovin kauniin tai houkuttelevan näköistä. Vahvassa miellyttävässä tuoksussa monenlaista hedelmää. Maussa hedelmää ja lievästi karamellimaista makeutta, muttei liikaa, alkoholi ei maistu läpi. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Toimiva olut tämäkin Abbaye des Rocsin tuotos.

Sameahko, oranssinvärinen olut vaahtoaa aika pienehkösti ja vaahtoa katoaa nopeasti kokonaan. Tuoksu kukkainen, saippuainen, vehnäinen ja sitruunainen, varsin raikas ja tyylilleen uskollinen. Maku samoin raikkaan hiilihappoinen, vehnäinen, hieman sitruunainen ja mausteinen sekä maltainen. Hiilihappoja aika reilusti. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Oikein kiva ja raikas vehnäolutmainen kesäterassijuoma.

Bottle from Beer Cartel (33cl). Murky deep amber with a solid dense white head. Notes of banana, toast, alcohol, soft pepper and caramel on the nose. Boozy thick sticky creamy palate with largely sweet malty flavours and a soft spiciness before finishing with an alcoholic burn. Low bitternes. A big rich Belgian dark triple.

Abbaye des Rocs Brune
Data ważności: 21.04.2018
Kolor: Brązowy z czerwono-rubinowymi odcieniami. Nie jest do końca przejrzysty.
Piana: Wąska, lekka, praktycznie niewidoczna. Przy tak wysokim wysyceniu znika z sykiem w oka mgnieniu. Milimetrowy krążek otacza górną warstwę Trappist Glass. Śladowe ilości piany na ściankach.
Zapach: Aromat jest na prawdę pierwszorzędny. Słodki, słodowy z wieloma warstwami zapachowymi. Pierwsze uderzenie było w klimacie czekolady, odrobiny kawy i kakao. Gdy tylko zniknęły te składowe pojawiły się kolejne w postaci orzechów włoskich, karmelu i toffi. Daleko na zapleczu lekka paloność.
Smak: W smaku Brune jest kompletnie inne niż w aromacie. Odnajduje tutaj więcej czerwonych i ciemnych owoców. Jeżyny, ciemne winogrona, rodzynki i aronia. W kolejnym łyku pojawia się toffi i karmel i delikatny brązowy cukier. Co pewien czas piwo przypomina młode wino gronowe. Przy następnym łyku na podniebieniu osiada trochę miodu. Fajne musowanie na języku. Goryczka niewielka, słodowy finisz. Faktura gęsta, ciało pełne. Słodkie, gładkie, ale wcale nie mulące. Wibrujący, ciepły alkohol równomiernie rozchodzi się po całym ciele. Żywe wysycenie podbija pełnię. Wysokoprocentowy trunek, ale o pokaźnej pijalności.
Wysycenie: Wysokie.
Podsumowanie:
Abbaye des Rocs uwarzone zostało jako czysto słodowe piwo. BEZ DODATKU cukru. Użyto aż 7 rodzajów słodów i 3 rodzaje chmielu (belgijski, niemiecki i czeski). Wzorowy przykład Belgian Strong Ale. Perfekcyjnie wyważony, doskonale zbalansowany i bogaty zarówno smakowo, jak i zapachowo. Najbardziej zaskoczył mnie aromat który miał akcenty czekolady i kawy. To nieczęsta sugestia w przypadku BSA. Aromat i smak łączył w sobie masę słodkich nut: toffi, karmel, kawa, słodkie owoce. Należy jednak pamiętać, jak już wyżej pisałem, że nie ma tutaj grama cukru! To jest fenomenem. Piwo pełne, gęste, wyklejające usta i podniebienie. Dodam na koniec, że za piwo zapłaciłem 7,8 zł. 8 ZŁOTYCH ZA 6-te Belgian Strong Ale na świecie??? Chyba nie muszę już więcej nic dodawać ;)

W aromacie suszone owoce, cukier kandyzowany, podwyższony poziom melanoidyn, mniej karmelu. W smaku ponownie chlebowość na pierwszym planie, potem suszone owoce, lekka drożdżowa pikantność, dobrze ukryte alko. Nie jest złe, ale jest też trochę toporne, taki nazbyt estrowy doppelbock.

Taster at The Mondial de la biere. The color is a dark brown with thick beige head. The taste is sweet and heavy of fruits like cherries and also dark chocolat and herbs with a good serving of malt plus yeast. The aroma is pleasing to the nose and lets you know what is coming in the taste.I enjoyed this beer a lot.

hazy walnut brown colour with a lot of small particles, minimal beige head; aroma of dried cherry (maybe plum and figs, too), dark chocolate, walnut, wet leather and minimal herbal notes; taste is the same with less intensiveness and Belgian yeast notes; almost perfect - if the taste was as intensive as the aroma it would be a magnificient masterpiece...anyway, it’s still brilliant!

1.5l bottle thanks to Lore. Hazy dark orange body with lots of floating sediment. Aroma of caramel, orange zest, figs, raisins and pepper. Taste of candi sugar, orange zest, raisins, dates, cloves and some floral hops. Very smooth beer. Based on the aroma it seems to be stronger, but the taste is not boozy. Awesome beer.

Massive gusher, lost half the 330ml bottle to my lounge room. The beer is fairly good - caramel, bready, belgian yeast - but can’t make up for that level of gushing. Disappointing.

330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 28/08/2017 Pours a murky sort of pale bronze body, foamy head. Aroma is quite intense - peppery, clovey phenolics, bread dough, biscuity caramel malt, has a medicinal red berry fruit sort of note - not sure if its hop or yeast derived? Syrupy smooth creamy sort of texture, big without being cloying or evidently potent. Carbonation subdued. Flavour is quite sweet upfront - lots of caramel, overly ripe stonefruits, sweet bread crust, savoury spice & black pepper, has a sort of lifted citrus note lingering brings a sense of balance to the beer. A solid Belgian strong for sure - maybe expecting more from a 9%er?

Gushing. Brown colour, clear, but there’s lots of yeast, quite nice creamy head. Very high carbonation. Aroma: biscuits, caramel, bread, some wionous notes, yeasts, spices, clove, toast, green apple, alcohol after warming. Full body, lots of sweetnes, but there’s also some fruity sourness. Lots of yeast in flavour, some clove, ester fruits. Low bitterness, in the end some earthy notes and alcohol (nice covered when cold, aleter becoming annoying).

A bottle that has been lying around for several years. It says "Brasserie des Rocs." I remember being unimpressed with this originally and put aside a couple bottles for a few years. A cloudy brown with small beige head, a ton of large particulate matter. Aroma sugary malt, caramel, chocolate, subtle toasted nuts. Medium body, lightly carbonated, a touch of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet but finishes dryer. Caramel, dark fruits, maybe a little dry hops, figs. Not sure if the original bottle I had wasn’t good or if it’s improved with age but this is quite nice.

Abbaye des Rocs Brune
Piana bardzo obfita i sycząca, szybko opada do chmurki, gushing przy otwieraniu. Barwa czerwono brązowa, brzydko zmętniona - sporo dużych "farfocli" wewnątrz trunku. W aromacie głównie suszone i kandyzowane owoce, jasne winogrono, porto, karmel i stary chmiel. Smak dość słodki, winogronowy (co ważne, nie dodawano tu cukru), ogólnie powtórka z aromatu, przy czym jest wyraźna rodzynka i suszona gruszka macerowane w brandy czy mocnym słodkim winie - fantastyczna sprawa. Goryczka niska, ziołowa. Wysycenie średnie, pełne, wyklejające w odczuciu, może nie gęste, ale treściwe. Alkohol? - bliższy 5% niż 9 :)
Gdyby nie ten stęchły chmiel w zapachu i gushing piwo byłoby genialne, a tak jest po prostu bardzo dobre. Podejrzewam, że inna butelka - lepiej przechowywana lub świeższa (moja ma datę do 10/02/2017) mogłaby zahaczać o ideał BDSA.

Abbaye des Rocs Brune
Aroma: raisins, plums, banana, alcohol, dark caramel, strawberry (pretty sure that’s aromatic malt), doughy, some biscuit, molasses?. Appearance: dark red, very cloudy, off white head with good retention. Quite the gusher though, impossible to pour nicely in the beginning- all of the yeast got resuspended and is in little flakes inside the glass. I don’t know what to say as this was really unexpected. Taste: same notes as in aroma but with more prominent alcohol warming, quite sweet, some more dark caramel, gentle roast, nonexistent bitterness, honey-strawberry taste that I adore from the aromatic malt. The rest is the same and quite interesting, complex. medium body, creamy, slick feel, lively, long sweet finish with some lingering aromatic malt, dark fruits leftovers. Equisite. Overall: A sipper with amazing complexity, I can see coming back to this beer for more, despite its significant alcohol warming and sweetness which are not really faults but move away from the typical belgian "drinkability and slight dryness" of dubbels/brunes. Apart from that the presentation is its only fault due to the significant gushing and resuspending of the yeast.

Medium white head. Clear yellow body with visible lumps of something, probably protein. Fruity spicy aroma with herbal earthy notes. Dryish earthy funky taste with mealy floral fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish fruity mineraly funky aftertaste with herbal spicy linoleum notes. Interesting and highly unusual. Not that great, though.

Abbaye des Rocs Triple Impériale
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep ruby, with a large light beige head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. The aroma offers savoury, almost Vegemite-like notes, combined with tart berry and hints of spice and oak. There is a bit of funk up front, with plenty of spice, giving way to perhaps a touch too much alcohol heat in the mid-palate, although there are plenty of dark berry, red wine flavours going on. The finish sweetens, with a port aftertaste. A good Belgian ale, perhaps could be a bit more subtle on the alcohol, but otherwise very pleasant.
