Rochefort Trappistes 8

The beer was sweet and there was no bitterness at all, but it was strong. It reminded me of being in Belgium; it mentally took me back to De Fiere de Magriet. I was tipsy off of just the one (9.2%). It tasted awesome. 8:58PM PT

The History of "8"
Originally called "Spécial," Rochefort 8 dates to the mid-1950s. The name comes from the original gravity in "Belgian degrees."

Deep brown color; the flavor is vigorous and complex, with firm body to support the strength. The aroma has elusive notes of fresh fruit, spice, leather, and figs.

Serving Suggestion
Great with full-flavored dishes like pate, duck, or wild game; shows well with strong-flavored cheeses. Also wonderful alone as an aperitif. Serve in traditional Rochefort stemmed goblet.
