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.

Guruhso (111) - DENMARK - DEC 13, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2015 Aroma and taste of dried fruits; figs, prunes - over-riped fruits and malty cacao. Body is medium and texture is creamy. It’s sweet and well-carbonated and finish with a lingering alcohol burn. The plumcake of Beers....

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2015 No muy aromatica, aunque se detectan aromas a tostado. Sabor dulce, caramelo, toffe. No muy persistente en paladar, fácil de beber. Muy recomendable.

De rocheforts zijn prachtige bieren, deze ook. Niet te koud dronken. Drop en caramel. Weinig schuim, hazelnootkleur. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
