Rochefort 8 combines a subtle fruit and honey aroma with velvety chocolate raisin and pie crust flavors. A very warming alcohol finishes a dry light bodied Belgian ale. You should have six bottles at all times in case of a zombie uprising.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown beer with durable big fluffy head. Aroma has ripe fruits, sweet and sour berries and some hops. Taste has ripe fruits, resin, tannin, berries and grape hop flavors as well. Full texture but still not that great. 10 is still better even I didn’t like the after taste in it. Complex beer.

Spiced rum, plums, figs and even bits of bourbon on the nose. Tastes of big, dark, spiced fruits with peppery cloves, bitter skins, malted breads and all kinds of glorious things they currently serve in heaven. A truly blessed beast.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a reddish brown with an off white head that dissipates quickly. Lots going on here. Some spice(like a rum like spice you’d find in spiced rum), dark fruits (plums, raisins, prunes, figs), caramel, light cocoa. Taste is very much the same as the nose. A little sweet but thats to be expected with the higher alcohol content. Finish is spice and some grassy notes. Very well done.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
1.5 year old bottle. Dark copper with light beige head that disappears very fast and leaves a nice little island. Incridibly complex: there’s red fruits, dried fruits, rum, spices, milk chocolate, icecream, it just keeps on going. Taste is a great balance: medium sweet, sour touch and bitter cocoa and grassy notes in the aftertaste. Medium mouth, slightly prickly carbonation. My favorite beer so far. Every bottle is slightly different, I prefer the ones that have a bit more chocolate, but this is very, very close to perfection.

12 oz bottle shared pours murky red color with off white head. The aroma is odd dark fruits like plums or maybe figs also get lots of sweet malts. The flavor is incredible. Sweet malt backed by the dark fruit base. Medium body so full of flavors. No alcohol burn to speak of. Sensational beer.

Couleur très spéciale orangés avec des reflets rouge avec un col moyennement mousseux mais résistant. Nez intense et complexes de fruits rouges. En bouche le mélange est complexes tout comme le nez: Cerises,framboises,fraises et plus encore. Une bière très bien construite mais il faut aimer ce genre de bière pour l’apprécier a 100% !
