COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ForlornHope (469) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours clear red-brown with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with some subtle earthy hop. Sweetish taste with a very gentle bitterness. Flavours of roasted malt, nut and chocolate with more earthy hop, almost like leaf-mulch. Sweet finish with just a hint of dryness. A nicely balanced, tasty beer.

Brown, pretty clear, large beige head. Toast, butterscotch, salty caramel, cake, coffee liquor. Hard roasty taste, quite dry actually. Not the typical Belgian dubbel. I enjoyed it. (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels)
