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.

homeini (273) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 8, 2017
W aromacie melasa i goździki. W smaku klasyczny trapist, słodko i przyprawowe. Barwa jasnobrązowa, piana średnia szybko się redukuje. Wysycenie średnie.

dunklermessias (205) - Lüneburg, GERMANY - APR 8, 2017
0,33 l Bottle. Pours with a brown color and a nice white head. There is just a small nose: malty, some fruit, some caramal. Telling the trust, I am a little disappointed. The taste is fully matured fruits, some caramle, some yeast.

stupre (373) - Nanterre, FRANCE - APR 3, 2017
33 cl bottle purchased @ Les caves de Nanterre.Robe brune assez trouble avec beaucoup de mousse qui se dissipé rapidement. Forte carbo. On passe directement sur des notes de figues séchées avec une petite pointe de réglisse.

FinnIckler (480) - GERMANY - APR 3, 2017
Bottle from Maruhn, one of the first beer I’ve ever bought there. Pours reddish brown, big white head. Nose is very dark-fruity, citrus, orange, blood orange, red grapes, but also moist chocolate cake. Palate is a bit boozy, full bodied, bread, dark fruits, hoppy aftertaste. Almost as good as their 10!

PiwnyMarek (1092) - Lomza, POLAND - APR 3, 2017
Aromat lekko owocowy. Mętne ze słabą pianą. W smaku bardzo przyjemne. Nie czuć tej mocy. Typowy belg.

Grumpelmies (318) - GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown with a huge head and beautiful lacing. Aroma is rather mild, dark fruits, sugar and yeast. Taste follows aroma. Plums, figs and malty cake. Full bodied and good carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Very delicious. The little sister of Rochefort 10 is more smooth and maybe even more balanced.

4.5
BierNederland (18) - - MAR 31, 2017
Zeer goede trappist. Donkerbruine, paarsachtige kleur met dikke, beige schuimkraag. Volle smaak met tonen van rijp fruit, toffee en meer. Klassieker. Fantastisch bier om heerlijk de tijd voor te nemen.
