COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The lower gravity cousin to Rochefort 10. Nicknamed "Spéciale" (’The Special’), this beer is the most recent production. The Rochefort 8 has a more tawny colour and a more pronounced aroma, with an even richer fruitiness (a slight undertone of fig?) and a little more spiced dryness, like that of a cake, which gives a balanced finish to the final notes.

Bottiglia. Colore bruno scuro, poca schiuma bianca. Ed ora inizia il bello. Aroma molto complesso, che ad occhi chiusi fa viaggiare la mente. Frutta matura, lievito, note di cioccolato, malto, minima componente luppolata, spezie. Il sapore è dolce e suadente, nota amara minima per una combinazione aggraziata, riscaldata dalla componente alcolica - che, bisogna dirlo - non è prorompente nonostante i 9,2 gradi. Carbonatazione decisa, corpo medio - pieno, retrogusto duraturo. Fenomenale.

Very carbonated and malty. Strong flavor with a lingering aftertaste, but not in a bad way. Not as dark as I expected and definitely a sipping beer. Great for a night at home and a good movie. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours brownish purple with a quickly disappearing small white head. Medium carbonation. Some sweetness, possibly toffee, and some fruitiness. Good beer that is obviously strong at 9.2%.

Рошфоры лучшие из бельгий& но восьмер& конечно, уступае& десятке в полноте вкуса. Все то же плотное тело, меньше цветочн& раскрыв& ну и после 0.33 не хочется ничего.

Rated based on notes taken 25 June 2012 -- This is a solid trappist brew. I really need to buy some to age and see how well they do.

Plums. Figs. Drank warm. Incredibly dry. Much more drinkable than a rochefort 10. Quite complex. Really enjoyable....makes me think I’m not sure why people drink crappy beer

33 cl. flaske. 9,2 %. Mørk øl let sødlig smag. Passer meget bedre til min smag end 10’ren. Velkomponeret.
