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.

Аромат весьма сладкий с легкой ноткой кофе. Пивная пена с большими пузырями быстро опадает. Вкус слегка кисловат с легкой постоянной горечью. Чувствуется карамель,сухофрукты возможно ягоды. Послевкусие сложное, есть постепенный переход из горячи в сладость с совсем легкой кофейной ноткой. В целом классный Бельгийский Эль.

Mętne brązowe piwo z pianą dość szybko znikającą. Aromat lekko owocowy, rodzynki. W smaku podobnie. Ogólnie klasę gorszy od 10-ki

brandy cools (32) - antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2017
Fruitness in the aroma, yeast and malt too. The taste ads a nice bitteress, something in between that of malt and hop. Maybe a bit of chicoree too. reddish brown color and lasting head. Very good beer.

Ocena przepisana z notatek.
Aromat: Intensywne estry: brzoskwinie, banany, morele. Nieco melasy cukrowej i skórki od chleba. Są też obecne delikatne cytrusy
Wygląd: Ciemnobrązowe. Opalizujące. Obfita, biała, drobnopęcherzykowa piana
Smak: Owocowe. Wydaje się dosyć słodkie, lecz mimo wszystko jest wytrawne, smukłe. Wyczuwalna delikatna przyprawowość. Pod koniec rozgrzewanie od alkoholu.
Goryczka: Średnia.
Odczucie w ustach: Wysoko wysycone (jest to niestety cecha piw z tego browaru). Nieco to przeszkadza. Ciało średnie

Sporo rodzynek, przypalonego spodu od ciasta, chleba, karmelu, ciemnych suszonych owoców. Dosyć wodniste o dziwo.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2017 Dark red, brown with a thick beige head. Aroma slightly yeasty, a lot of chocoate. Taste adds malt, with dried fruit: dates and figs. Slight bitterness at the end.
