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.

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.

Kita (1679) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy brown color with thin creamy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, caramel, dried fruits and alcohol. Taste starts with rich and sweet grainy and toasted malt, following is fruity, yeasty and bready, mouthfeel is warming and spicy, while finish is mild bitter. Full body, thick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Perfect Trappist brew...

Very well balanced. Heavy still refreshing. You wouldn’t want to drink a bucket of them but the flavour is really appealing.

Echon (195) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2015
Bottle, 33 cl. Slightly hazy red/brown body with a foamy light beige head. Sweet aroma with notes of fruit, spice and alcohol. Very rich taste with moderate sweetness and light bitternss. Solid malt and spice flavour. Warming alcohol. Medium body with prickly carbonation. A bit overcarbonated, like Rochefort 6. Dry, almost tasteless, finish. An elegant and balanced beer. One to be savoured slowly in quiet contemplation.
