As one of the Trappist breweries, I felt obligated to start sampling and happened to start with the classic Rochefort 8!
A: Pour was a very nice dark cloudy chocolate brown allowing a nice amount of light through yet and a nice thin creamy head.
S: Very complex aroma with some definite choc./caramel along with some malty sweetness combined with nice dark fruit tart scent with a hint of citrus cloaked in the background.
T: Amazing flavors in this brew, the choc./caramel flavors immediately hit along with the amazingly balanced dark dried fruit tart flavors with nearly no bitterness and an amazing alcohol heat to finish.
M: I personally loved the feel, has the excellent Trappist carbonation with a syrupy smoothness that left an excellent coating and complementing the flavors perfectly!
This is definitely one of the best brews I have tried thus far, and am anxiously awaiting a good time to break open a bottle of Rochefort 10! If you want a world class ale, turn to the Trappists!!
