Brasserie de Rochefort Trappistes 8
Style: Belgian Strong Ale
The lower gravity cousin to Rochefort 10. Originally called "Special," 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.
