Trappistes Rochefort 8

Trappistes Rochefort 8 (9.2%): a strong dark ale from Belgium. This is a fairly rare authentic Trappist product.

  • Pours a beautiful dark amber liquid.
  • Awesome fruity smell! 
  • The bitter-sweet flavor is so complex it's hard to describe; hints of : grapes, grapefruit, nuts, figs.
  • After taste is very delicate and fruity.
  • Mega Buzz! A strong but mellow buzz I shall say.
  • Classic bottle.


We need more beers like this!


Grade: A+
