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.

Niet zo goed als de rochefort 10 maar komt wel heel aardig in de buurt. Echt een aanrader voor wie van donkere bieren houdt

GhostS (368) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 23, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2017 Aroma - medium, complex and rich, with lot of rotten/fermented fruits, flowers, caramel, malt and belgian yeasts, all diluted with alcohol. Taste - intense, rich and very pleasant, sweet to a minimum with some slightly fermented fruits, caramel and dark honey, over medium carbonation, a bit of bitterness, some spices and a bit of alcohol in the final and aftertaste. Very good, balanced and a true trappiste beer.

Thuis uit fles gedronken. Bruine kleur. Aroma niet heel sterk, maar een volle lang nablijvende smaak. Erg lekker.

Offar (13) - DENMARK - JUL 14, 2017
Hazy brown with a pretty thick long lasting very foamy head . Aroma is fruity a little bit booze, smells a bit like rum. Taste is ripe dark fruit caramel, brown sugar raisin. Very good, nice and fat pallet

elosop (422) - SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2017 Oklar brunorange med beige tunn skumkrona. Doftar lite fruktigt, sött och malt. Smaken fyllig, lite söt och besk. Eftersmaken lång, maltig, lite besk med karamell på slutet. Ingen alkoholsmak trots 9,2%.

4.7
shawnmurphy (495) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2017
12-ounce bottle pours hazy brown-ruby with tan head and lacing. Aroma: dried dark fruits, brown sugar. Flavor: malt-forward; figs, dates, plums, nuts, molasses bread. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied. You can’t go wrong with Trappistes Rochefort 6, 8 or 10 -- all world class beers!

2.9
Michael27 (1996) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2017
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Dunkelbraun mit viel Schaum im Glas. Ein süßlicher Malzteppich überdeckt den Alkohol.

Brettsky06 (446) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 2, 2017
Dark brown pour. Long lasting beige head. Dark fruit aromas and taste. Some figs and booze also in the taste. Strong tasting but not overpowering. Nicely balanced

ironcontra (313) - POLAND - JUN 28, 2017
Another knockout from the brewery, figs, fruits, caramel, bubblegum, but overall very rounded, not tiring or diabetic
