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.

corkyrory66 (1627) - BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2015
Brune basique de 6,5 %, refermente, mettant laccent sur le fum si lon sen tient son nom. Couleur brun roux, et roux en transparence. Bulles fines en colonne centrale, et quelques extrieures, vivantes. Mousse beige caramel, bien crmeuse, stable 2 mm. Armes de malt grill, haricots blancs, pointe de fume, de ciboulette et noisette. 1re bouche douce sur lcorce fume, fanes sches de pommes de terre, pointe de muscade. Arrire-bouche pas trs riche, un peu fade. 2me avec quelques belles nuances, mais trop faible. Arrire-bouche peu malte, assez courte. 3me sur malt noir, pointe de fume, mais pas dquilibre. Arrire-bouche aqueuse. Longueur trs faible, manque dharmonie de lensemble. Jambes lisses, faiblement marques. Levure douce, faible. Alcool sans efficacit sur les saveurs. Finale banale. CONCLUSION: en-dehors du format dplorable (25 cl !!), cette bire est vraiment simple et fruste. Juste quelques petites notes positives!!

bartlebier (3633) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 75cl bottle from Poperingse Bierfestival 10/2014, brewed 05/2014. Dark acajou-brown pour with again a luscious cap. Rich earthy aroma of caramel roast, bread crust, fragrant fresh bread, an inkling of strawberry and meadow hops. Taste is a well-balanced mix of all that, surprisingly dry and rich. Popering hop bite with great character in the finish. Nice Flemish Dunkel!
