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.

kluke63 (1) - - NOV 20, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2018 Like the sublime Rocheforte 10. Only lighter and cap/ cigar/ whippet optional. Yum Yum. Classic Belgian dark tripel. Massive dark candi hit with long strong sweet malt backbone. Boozy nose with perfectly balanced malt and hops. A little too sweet for hopheads and yet big hop AND malt hit. Bananas and biscuit. Raisins. Figs. Hint of spice. A must for any beer lover.

rayaron (2936) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - NOV 16, 2018
Bottle shared at a tasting at zvsn's place. Hazy, somewhat cloudy, deep brownish-bronze with bubbly beige head. Sweetish aroma with notes of dried fruits, caramel, dulce de leche and yeasts. The flavor is sweet with notes of Belgian yeasts, honey, dried fruits, caramel, a bit oxidised, alcohol and bread. Full-bodied.

tomer (4585) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 13, 2018
At a tasting, many thanks, medium fizzy bubbly head, cloudy lightish brown color, aroma of candy and light dried fruits with a hint of oxidation, flavor of cakey maltiness, some oxidation and dried fruits, not overly heavy. Nice.

zvsn (3224) - ISRAEL - NOV 12, 2018
Bottle at a tasting. Hazy amber-brown with a beige head. Smell of honey, prunes, candy, yeast, signs of oxidation. Pretty sweet, overripe fruits, caramel, honey, Belgian yeast, molasses, oxidized, bitter finish. Medium-bodied, syrupy and sticky.

NobleSampler19 (1123) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 12, 2018
Ein angenehm weiches, samtiges Bier mit malziger Basis. Dabei sind auch gute Gewürznoten zu finden, welche ein schönes Zusammenleben entwickeln. Ein Bier das schon nahe an flüssigen Lebkuchen mit Schuss kommt, aber nicht abstrus sondern wunderbar ausgewogen schmeckt.

yerffoeg (289) - Dinant, BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2018 Une belle couleur qui se partage entre le brun et l'ambre, avec un fin col de mousse. Un nez très riche de levure, sucre, raisin et une bouche puissante ou l'alcool se dispute à des notes de fruits et de massepain.

0,33 l botle. Taste is raisin, baked apples, chocolate, yeast , grapes, dates, figs. Good and strong one, but 10 version is much better.

z87 (1166) - Frydek-Mistek, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 1, 2018
#1195 lahvová 0,33l z pivotéky. Tento lahodný počin se dostává pro mě do prozatimního TOP3 toho co může přinésti trocha vody s obilím a chmelem. Na Chimay Bleu a St.Bernardus Abt 12 ještě stále o kousek nemá, ovšem je to poezie. Pro Rochefort 10 mám naději, že se dostane na úplnou špičku pomyslného žebříčku.

pictoman (1353) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2018
Poured from 330mL bottle (best before 09/05/17 - was trying to age it, but forgot about it). Near clear medium-dark auburn brown with full beige head. Still very full bodied with notes of plum and fig with dry belgian yeast and spice. Very well balanced flavours. I prefer this slightly over the Rochefort 10.
