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.

From Jun 2006 Poured from 33cl bottle(best by 07/08) a cloudy dark brown with a large head of foam that dissipated slowly leaving a fine layer with lots of lacing. The smell is fruity and yeasty with strong notes of plum and fig. The taste has sweet malt up front and fruity notes, mostly plum, midway through and right through the finish. There's also some molasses tones that I noted in the Rochefort 10 but here, in comparison, they are much subdued. And.... the abv doesn't come in to play at all. This is one very tasty BSDA! Bottom line: A very tasty brew of its style that I can thoroughly recommend!

Note à moi même : n'achète plus cette bière! C'est pas mon style, trop lourd, trop alcoolisée. En depis de tous les commentaires qui disent que cette bière est la meilleure, moi je n'y arrive pas.
