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.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2010 A slightly sweeter and less complex version of the 8, nonetheless very nice flavor and reasonable complexity.

Poure a murky brown color with small head. Fruity with yeast, brown sugar, fruit and light chocolate flavor. Tasted almost like the 8. Would have to drink them side by side to determine the difference. Good brew !

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours a muddy brown with a small, white head with some yeast particulate. Aroma is slightly muted but there is some grass, flowers, earthy notes, bubblegum, and yeast. Mouthfeel is effervescent with a little too much carbonation. Taste is sweet with lots of candy, brown sugar, crystal malt, and some slight sour, fruity notes. Spiciness and yeastiness throughout. Nice dry and neutral aftertaste. Excellent.

Homer321 (5071) - Melboring, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2008
11.2 oz bottle into wide mouthed glass. smells of burnt sugars and slightly bready. rich ruby color. Incredibly smooth up front that turns sweet like caramel, slightly tart. slightl alcohol as it warms. mouthfeel is highly carbonated. Overall a good beer, but I would lend more toward a St. Bernardus.

A nice easy drinking, sweet malty beer. High on the alcohol, but you wouldn’t know it. definately a cut above dubbel, perhaps on the same level as the chimay

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - OCT 12, 2008
pours a swampy looking brown color with lots of clumpy yeast. it’s temporarily capped by a very aggressive light tan head. unknown fruity aroma followed by bubble gum, butterscotch/toffee candy, brown sugar, grain, vanilla, chocolate, yeast and a sting from alcohol/spice. there’s a light sweetness on the palate which is in no way off putting... flavors of brown sugar, yeast, co2, toasted nuts, malt and lots of that unknown fruitiness. alcohol and spiciness show up on the finish. clean... there seems to be no real aftertaste. medium body. prickly carbonation in the beginning settles down to leave a blah texture as it warms...
