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.

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.

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.

Er det verdens bedste Double? Er det overhovedet sådan en? Men den smager fantastisk, er blød, behagelig og rund. Noter af svesker og sukker. En rigtig nydeøl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Met a friend at Brothers, took the opportunity to treat myself. Life is good! Nice aroma, not too strong, another very good Rochefort.

Elle est bonne, on peut pas dire le contraire, c’est juste que le style n’est pas pour moi.

Fles gedeeld door LiekevdV. Het is een donker bruin bier met een bittere smaak met enkele zoete tonen.
