Brasserie Trappistes Rochefort "8" Strong Dark Ale, Belgium (11.2oz)

SKU #1059080 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 #10 of top 25 beers of 2015. Cinnamon, dark dried fruits, caramel squares and malty sweetness dance around the moderately intense nose. The mouth is big and very concentrated with medium-high carbonation and flavors of granulated brown sugar, molasses, baked apples and caramelized figs. Very filling with a lot of complexity; the more it warms, the more depth of flavors it shows. A beautiful example of the style: fantastically balanced, decadent and sure to age gracefully.

K&L Notes

From the brewery: "Rochefort 8, the newest addition to the line, dates from 1955. Originally this beer was only brewed for New Year’s Eve celebrations. Rochefort 8 begins with a density of 20.8º Plato and reaches a final 9.2% ABV. Masculine in character, it lends itself best to being enjoyed among friends! Due to the overwhelming success of this beer, the monks decided around 1960 to brew it on a regular basis. Sometimes this beer is also referred to as the Special."
