A: The beer was a dark red color with a little brown. There was a light tan head on top that lasted a long time.
S: Like Rochefort 6, I smelled a dried fruit aroma, but the smell was more robust in Rochefort 8. I also noticed some of the alcohol as well.
T: I mainly tasted the dried fruit flavor, similar to Rochefort 6. However, this beer was sweeter and more complex overall. There was a strong roasty flavor that I guess would be from the type of malt used. The alcohol was blended well with the other flavors.
M: This beer had a good level of carbonation- somewhat on the lower side. The carbonation combined with the head foam created a smooth-drinking beer.
D: I really enjoyed this beer overall. While I noticed similarities to Rochefort 6, I definitely liked Rochefort 8 more. It seems the extra time utilized in making this beer made it better fit my taste preferences. If a longer brewing time brings about improvements for Rochefort's beers, then I am excited to try Rochefort 10 soon.
