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.

promontor (188) - HUNGARY - JUL 14, 2018
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2018 0.33l bottle from Belga Sörmester. Reddish mid-brown hazy body. Beige head, starting big but vanishing quickly. Fizzy, big bubbles. Complex, seducing aromas of nuts, some fruits, mostly forest berries, a bit of caramel. Complex and fresh aromas, enjoyed very much. Taste is nutty with caramels. Also fresh fruitiness, but hard to identify the fruits. Palate is fizzy, strong carbonation. Somehow there is a watery mouthfeel and an alcohol-warm aftertaste at the same time. Despite the very fizzy, strongly carbonated mouthfeel, which I usually dislike, this is a seducing, complex beer. Definitely recommended.

Not a nice beer at-all ...skunky, overly malty and a horrible walnut-ish back end of the taste. Nothing like the 10. Very avoidable.

Piana drobno pęcherzykowa, nie znika. Mętne, brązowe. W aromacie banan, suszone owoce. W smaku charakterystyczna dla Rochefortów nuta, jakby lekko palona. Słodkawe, dość ciężkie. Solidne piwo

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2018 Botella 33 cl en el Kraken 04..07..2018. (r2479). Color amarillento dorado velado con espuma blanca persistente. Sabores maltosos y cereales con stoques dulces y sensación alcohólica seca. Poco amargo. Cuerpo medio algo denso, un poco seco. Buena.

weaver23ph (507) - Wrocław, POLAND - JUN 29, 2018
Bottle. Clear gold, low and rather ugly, unstable, white head, no lacing. Aroma peppery, spicy, slightly malty, red berries, bready. Taste smooth but not sweet, a little malty, thick, a tad mealy. Carbonation high, tingling. Bitterness medium, hoppy, peppery, short. Aftertaste peppery, spicy, berries, a little malty, slightly bready, pears. A very good example of a Belgian ale, tasty and rich.

dutchdarthvader (565) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2018 Super fruitig met name gedroogd fruit als abrikoos, vijgen en rozijnen maar ook proef je herkenbaar de karamel. Redelijk zoet met een gemiddelde bitter. Rolt ook erg lekker in de mond waarbij de volle rijke smaak mooi blijft hangen. Zwaar troebel amberkleurig biertje met een volle schuimkraag. Ruikt naar rozijnen heel licht gebrand en een subtiele hint van zelfs koffie. Wat kan je zeggen dit is gewoon een fantastische dubbel :-) Vooral die volle ronde smaak krijg je gewoon geen genoeg van. Proefglas 7-4-9-4-18

bierwolf78 (329) - De Weere, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2018 Uiterlijk: Amber/bruin met een witte schuimkraag vol kleine belletjes, lijkt wel op kant. Geur: Hoppig, zoet, honing, peperig. Smaak: Zoet, hoppig, fruitig, een beetje peper. Mond: Vol, olieachtig en een fijne zachte smaak die lang uitvloeid.

Nevalainen (946) - FINLAND - JUN 23, 2018
Hazy amber color with off-white head. Aroma of reisins and icetea. Taste is light sweet, notes of alcohol. Light body. Need some more taste in this beer.
