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.

janubio (907) - - JUN 9, 2014
330 ml. bottle, served in chalice glass (I can’t find my Rochefort one). Red copper colour, with a small head that fades soon, leaving a minimal lace. Smell of chocolate, cherries, ripened fruits, port wine. Palate is just a pleasure, not much carbonation, just go round your tongue like a nectar. Taste is like the smell: cherries, chocolate, port wine, dark and ripened fruits, caramel. Glory.

rodzynki, sliwki, ciastka- wysokie wysycenie, klasyka belgijskiego gatunku. Wylezakowane, alkohol praktycznie niewyczuwalny.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2017 Bottle. Bown caramel colour and somewhat hazy. Thick but diminishing beige head. Aroma of bread, crystal malt and subtle brandy. Full body and soft carbonation. Taste of burned sugar, caramel and crystal malt. Also slightly bitter and sour. Dry and sweet in the aftertaste.

LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Deze stond nog open: mooie dubbel, niet te zwaar maar wel de mooie smaak van gedroogd fruit en caramel heerlijke dubbel!

Fles. Weer eens gedronken; in mijn herinnering was het (nog) beter. Smaakte nu iets te veel naar alcohol, maar goede trappist blijft overeind. Geen overmatig sterke smaak, maar veel meer dan aangenaam.
