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.

330ml brown bottle. Amber/brown colour. Strong head, at first pour it is rocky and uneven, two fingers in height. It setteled down to a small creamy layer of fine white bubbles. Patchy lacework. Malt accented fruity aroma with some caramel. Rich malt flavour, medium sweet, chocolate malt, fruity notes - light banana, pears in syrup. Finishes with yeasty dryness, medium body with a creamy fine carbonation. Alcohol keeps itself well hidden.

Pours murky brown with tall off-white / light brown head. Aroma of nuts, sugar, herbs, bread and dried fruit. Taste is sweet, spicy, slightly herbal, with a lightly roasty and nutty finish. Light to medium bodied and smooth with soft to average carbonation.

Bursztynowe, zamglone z gęstą pianą. Piana dosyć szybko się redukuje, nie zdobi szkła. W aromacie ciemne i czerwone owoce. Trochę przypraw. Jest też karmelowa słodycz. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie. Przyjemny karmelowy finisz. Przyjemnie się pije.

Bottle. Taste and aroma og brown sugar, plum, malt and some yeast. Some caramel in the taste. A good belgian beer.

Doft av parfymerat te, nypon. En aning fruktig smak, svart te, torr avslutning med en viss kärvhet. För att vara en belgisk ale känns det nästan som en vanlig öl.

Bouteille 33 cl - couleur brune opaque, mousse beige crémeuse épaisse et persistante, arômes cerise noire, petites bulles, goût sur le pain, torréfié, alcool qui réchauffe la gorge, complexe mais très agréable

cloudy brown. I expected more head retention actually. smells belgian yeasts and slighlty roasted malt. tastes caramel, wood, raisin and yeasts give it some leather taste too. medium bodied and highly carbonated for an dubbel. dry finish.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty spicy caramel herbal weak yeasty aroma. Fruity malty spicy caramel flavor. Has a fruity malty spicy caramel finish.

ozzatoadisback (172) - ITALY - JUN 3, 2017
Pours dark amber with visible carbonation and a quite dense white head which shows good retention and nice lacing. Rich and vivd aroma with caramel and brown sugar sweetness, fruitiness, slight spiciness and a refreshing herbal/balsamic note. Taste follows the aroma with medium to high caramelish and sugarish sweetness, fruity esters, slight spiciness/pricklyness and just enough bittering balance in a balsamic/herbal finish. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation, quite creamy. An highly drinkable and enjoyable strong ale that is still quite complex. Good

Dette er noget af det tætteste man kommer på den perfekte øl, tvivl ikke ikke, dette hus har satme fat i den lange ende. Men husk for dælen at der er en 8er og glem aldrig 10eren !

0,33 l Flasche. Braunes, trübes Bier, cremeweißer, stabiler, grobporiger Schaum, kaum Gardine. Riecht nach Rosine, fast wie ein Portwein. Schmeckt leicht nach Kirsche, sehr süß. Zu viel Kohlensäure.
