COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The lower gravity cousin to Rochefort 10. Nicknamed "Spciale" (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.

Brune claire voile, trs bien quilibre entre les notes chocolat, lgres caf et un fruit lger. Alcool bien prsent mais pas trop lourdement ressenti en bouche. Une brune forte finalement trs accessible. Bue occasionnellement.

Antzrhere (99) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2016 Pours dark brown with yeast haze. Taste of sweet burnt caramel, spiced rum and dandelion&burdock. Nice drinkable carbonation. Not quite the intense mind blowing experience as drinking a glass of Rochefort 10, but still crafted equally as well. Great beer

Inoven (384) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2016
Flesje thuis gedronken. Bruin-rood bier met stevig schuim. Aroma is caramel achtig met een vleugje van donker fruit. Smaak is fruitig, licht bitter en zoetig. Smaak blijft even hangen.

ALIBALI (981) - Kiel, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2016
Das dubbelige Tripel !? Riecht klar karamelig dubbellastig. Der Trunk samtig prickelnd und tripellike trocken, aber eben auch malzs und dunkelintensiv. Zwischen den Sthlen und zum Ende hin auch noch rauchig. Kein typisches BSA. 0,33 l Flasche fr unter 2 aus einem Supermarkt in Belgien mitgebracht.
