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.

Bottle - aged six months: Deep brown pour with cherry highlights and a fantastic cap that doesn’t 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 I’ve had. Wowza.

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) - Jyväskylä, 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.

lucke13 (91) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2008
Deep red-brown color topped with a frothy head. Slighly sweet, doughy aroma. Tasted less sweet and of roasted malt. The mouthfeel was amazing...not like syrup, but thick none-the-less. A very good beer.

Bottle. Pours a nice, dark caramel colour with a nice head. Very earthy flavour with citrus undertones. This is one of the best Belgian beers I’ve had the pleaure of tasting. Highly recommended.

I was a little dissapointed on how this poured since it was the same color as the 8 but the head was not as thick. Although the aroma is a bit stronger still the same smells, it is very floral but there is a bit more sweet malts in there. The flavor is nice and sweet and much more creamyier then the 8 was. I also enjoyed the fact that the carbonation was not as intence and the flavor lasted for a bit longer on the palate.
