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.

Ysok02 (1519) - Mons, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2017
Robe brune, fine mousse peu peristante. Nez sur le malt, le caramel, les épices douces, le café au lait. Bouche à l’attaque lactée, de la rondeur, de l’élégance, de l’équilibre à défaut d’être longue et complexe.

SylvainCFC (231) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2017
Bière brune foncée avec reflets roux, opaque. Mousse courte, humide, faible tenue, aspect écumeux. Nez dabord sur la douceur (toffee, caramel) avant que ne se révèlent le malt grillé, arôme de café. Bouche soyeuse, peu carbonatée, presque huileuse. Moins sucrée que le nez, avec une bonne base maltée qui développent des notes grillées, torréfiées. Belle amertume qui vient balancer la douceur de cette brune. Notes légère de fruits secs et très légère de fruits confis. Finale légèrement amère avec note de houblon herbacé. Corps moyen, une belle rondeur. Bière très bien exécutée, très belle balance entre la douceur maltée et lamertume qui lassèche et la rend très buvable. Amertume noire et verte légère, très agréable. Belle complexité.

ForlornHope (513) - 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.

Bottle from Miorge Mihoublon, Arlon, Belgium!
Pours very dark brown, nearly black, with a small off-white head. Aroma is strong yeasty, slight smoke in the background. Taste has lots of brown and dark malts, belgian yeast and some candy sugar. Sweet-roasty finish!
