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.

9sandwiches (20) - Falkirk, - JUL 25, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2020 Wow, outstanding Belgian beer, light chocolate flavour, a murky dark brown, medium carbonation and easy to drink, but, it hits you with a thud half way through when the 9.2% realisation comes in!

4.2
Cimbasso (1698) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2020 Bottle from beermerchants.com. Pours a chestnut brown with a reddish tinge. Beautiful thick, creamy, foamy head. Lovely taste, very rich and mellow with a medium bitterness. Notes of leather, oak, fig, prunes and spices. Top class mouthfeel with just the right amount of alcohol bite. Very long and complex aftertaste. A classic world-class ale.

4.3
Patersoi (323) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2020 Subtle trappist bouquet. Deep amber pour with low volume but dense cream head. Traditional flavour profile, with caramel, some dried fruit, vanilla and a hint of banana late on.

4.4
Aggiebob (2773) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUN 12, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2020 Bottle. Murky brown color ale with a tall, frothy tan head. Malty aroma with brown sugar, yeast and fruity notes. Caramel, plum, and fig are found in the sweet flavor profile. Smooth and silky mouthfeel with the alcohol well hidden. Very tasty.

4.2
Fisler (1653) - Bamberg, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2020 Zurecht eines der besten Biere der Welt, Erdnüsse von vorn bis hinten, in Nase und Trunk, sehr malzig, komplexer Abgang, langer Nachhall, hohe Drinkability, super Ding.

4.1
pippomix (259) - ITALY - MAY 29, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2020 Birra color rosso tendente al marrone, schiuma non molto persistente. Aromi di fichi e prugne..che tornano al palato assieme ad un finale di liquirizia e zucchero candito. Corpo pieno, caldo e morbido. Carbonazione medio-alta.

3.5
voytek (13) - USA - MAY 27, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2020 This is indeed a cloudy beer. Dark Soupy. I can taste some spices here, not so much fruits; rich in burned aroma and flavor (a burned fig, carmelized dark sugar0). Tiny bitter on the finish. Despite higher volume than TR '6, this one is less conspicuous on the alc. volume in taste. Not a choice for a sunny day. It is better not to have too many - heavy on the morning.
