COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

33cl bottle in Rochefort glass. Pours reddish-brown with off white head. Another excellent beer from this brewery. Similar to the 8 but not quite as flavorful. Dubbels arent my favorite but this one is great.

Bottle, aged for about a year or so. Pours a hazy, reddish brown, some sediment. Aroma of raisin, banana, fig and apricot. Flavor is more of the same, sweet with raisin and apricot showing through and a touch of malt. I thoroughly enjoyed this, looking forward to rating its two older brothers, 8 & 10 that I have been aging for the same amount of time.

Brownish/reddish pour with decent sized head. Lots of flavors here, noticed cherry, plum, raisin the most with some toffe/chocolate. Very full carbonation throughout the beer and nice lacing. An excellent abbey dubbel, highly recommended.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle - aged six months: Deep brown pour with cherry highlights and a fantastic cap that doesnt fade. A sharp cherry acidity meets the nose, followed by a rush of plum and raisin, toffee and dark chocolate. The body is sweet and well rounded, the sugary malts playing off the abundant fruity esthers. Lots of caramelized sugar, rummy raisin, doughy sweet bread and cinnamon roll. Cherry, apple and pear add dimension and make this one of the best dubbels Ive had. Wowza.

exadore (92) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle. Poured a very dark cloudy brown, with a two finger head. Nose is typical Belgian Ale, with a lingering musty hint. Tastes of toasted malt, with fruit notes, very good, no noticeable alcohol flavor.

Bottle 07. The final beer from Rochefort for me!!! This company has not let me down. Poures a large cream head. The aroma smells of sweet prune and spice, notes of malt. This gift looks almot brown golden brown with lots of sediment. Dank dank dank beer, awesome mouthfeel and body. The carbonation is full throughout the whole beer. If you find any of these 3 beers, buy one its worth it. Thanks Tikie!

Glorious beer! Nice and sweet aroma and taste, with a nice full body. Drank it out of a big mouthed wine class which went down real smooth. I loved every sip!

Miksu (5053) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2008
0.33 l bottle. Copper-amber color with big creamy head. Sweetish and perfurmed aroma with notes of figs and prunes. Nutty, caramelly and fruity flavor with figs, prunes, rose and soft alcohol. Very low bitterness. Very good beer, but I always prefer 8 and 10.
