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.

I tasted this beer before I got my account with ratebeer, so I can’t really remember all the flavors.

TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2008
33 cl bottle. Darkish and opaque amber brown with a beautiful beige head. The aroma is very appealing as well - sweet, plums, maraschino cherries, brown sugar, and yeast. The flavour is caramel malty sweet, with fruit, milk chocolate and spice. Almost no alcohol presence. Medium body and well carbonated. Very good and very drinkable.

BuckeyeBoy (8473) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 12, 2008
little bottle Pours out a hazy brown topped with a foam off white head. Aroma sweet pit fruit and raspberrys. Tast of raspberrys some odd yeast. This was my last of the 10 8 6. They all were very good. This one was tasty.

dchmela (3084) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Deep red pour with a thick white head. Fruity yeasty aroma. Lighter than a typical dubbel, but a medium body nonetheless. Big carbonation. Fruity, yeasty, and malty taste. Very Nice.

Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2008
UPDATED: APR 3, 2009 Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville. Pours cloudy orange-ish amber. Aroma of brown sugar and raisins. Taste is metallic and medicinal. Don’t like it. I got it! If you pretend its cola its not so bad.

Rerate: Didn’t take tasting notes, but I had a small sample which was much, much better. Scores updated to reflect that.

3.6
Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Shared w/ dpjuart. Hazy dark brown color. A LOT of carbonation. If it was corked, it would have blown it off. Fizzy off white head. Nose of sour yeast, some sweet malts, and alcohol soaked cherries. Mellow taste with a weird almost savory flavor and fruit. A little bit of bitterness. Biggest complaint was that there was no body to this at all. An interesting beer.

3.8
dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2008
Bottle courtesy/split with Naka. Pours murky brown with an amber hue, lots of floaters and sinkers. Small beige head, foamy and thin, good lacing. Sweet noste w/ some funk/sour, alcohol and cherries. Body is thin and watery, lots of carb with some caramel and raisins. Mild bitterness with the extremely dry finish, some cherry and pum, maybe a touch of coffee. End and finish are dry and bitter, with alcohol lingering into the after with some dry maltiness, caramel and toffee.

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 aren’t my favorite but this one is great.
