Just like its bigger brother this one is deep brown colored as well. Quite a strong character and very nice flavor. Cheers

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Ovo ću samo kratko. Dakle kad konačno dođete do njega i probate Westvleteren 12 i on ispuni vaša očekivanja , onda naravno da i od osmice očekujete isto tako kompleksno pivo samo sa manje 'konjskih snaga' , ali tu je za mene bilo malo razočaranje . Okusi i mirisi su slični ali tijelo je kod osmice dosta 'tanje' i nema punoču koju sam očekivao. Kod odnosa između Rocheforta 10 i 8 je to savršeno izvedeno i doslovno je Rochefort 8 sa ponosom 'mlađi brat' od desetke , i drži istu kvalitetu kao i 'jači brat'.. Daleko od toga da je to slabo pivo ! I te kako spada u vrh Belgian Strongova , samo sam očekivao više.

Kolor: ciemno miedziany, klarowny. Piana: obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, dość trwała. Zapach: sporo aromatów słodowych, trochę chlebowych, zbożowych, wyraźne aromaty ciemnych, suszonych owoców, fig, daktyli, lekkie melanoidyny, miód, aromaty opiekane, trochę aromatów drożdżowych, szampańskich, z czasem wychodzi lekka guma do żucia. Smak: średnia pełnia, lekka słodycz, trochę bardziej ubogo niż w zapachu, trochę nut słodowych, opiekanych, lekko melanoidynowych, wyraźne ciemne suszone owoce, trochę nut miodowych, dość wyraźny alkohol mimo długiego leżakowania w lodówce, goryczka wyraźnie alkoholowa. Wysycenie: średnie.

PhilosophyGuy (835) - Łódź, POLAND - DEC 17, 2017
W aromacie melasa, dużo miodu, karmel, jakieś nuty owocowe delikatnie. W smaku karmel, miód, trochę jakby ziemiste. Półsłodkie, trochę gryzące. Alkohol słabo wyczuwalny. Nagazowanie sporawe. Przehajpowane.
