The ole Trappistes Rochefot numero Ocho! Dug the hell out of numero diez, so I think I'm gonna enjoy this one, as I hear this one's a bit more on the bubbly side.

Pours into a nice cider rich look that makes you feel nice and comfy. *looks around for snuggly blanket and lights fireplace* Anywho, the head didn't last very long, and continues to dissipate as it sits; nothing to write home about.

Like his bro, number 10, this beer smells divine. Led by a pungent fruit that makes you want to sip immediately. Really a strong and alluring scent that most should enjoy. And by the looks of the reviews...they do!

Yep, it's bubbly, and delicious. I think Wine *burp*...raisiny - in that vicinity...I want to say sour apples. Nevertheless, you know of it's reputation, and it delivers.

The carbonation and fizzy feel is something I love, but you may not. As I drink I reminisce about warm gatherings, romance, intimacy....fig newtons. It has a lovely sting that feels...ohhh, old school and slightly refreshing.

This is a beer you want to drink. This is a beer you want to share with people. It's high alcohol content brings smiles fast, it's welcoming look, smell and taste will have brows raising. This is a beer that you'll look forward to having time and time again. Instantly became one of my favorites, and makes me want to go back to big brother number 10 to see if I missed something.

4.5/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served into my St. Bernardus Chalice.

Pours out a deep mahogany, dark and intriguing masking the mystery within. Off white creamy head, with a solid two fingers from the pour that mellows into a swampy film with no lacing.

This mighty brew takes your nostrils on a dark ride that is both rich and complex. Notes of hot caramel, molasses and fruit esters, sweet and rich, but not overpowering. Alcohol is noticeable at the end, but seems mellowed by the malts.

On the palate, there is a rich and hearty, almost savory depth to the malts. Fruit flavors dominate, figs, or muscadine grapes, though the sweetness is balanced well behind a clove-like spiciness and a warming alcohol character. Huge flavors dominate, but are well played against each other, wherein the malt sweetness plays off the alcohol which plays off the spiciness, all creating a medley of flavors and a hard to beat balance.

Medium-high carbonation, and though the ABV is 9.2% it is well masked, making this a very drinkable and enjoyable brew.

Notes: Some might mention sediment or yeast, but it is important to let it settle to avoid it intervering with the flavors of the beer. A proper pour along with a week of settling in the cellar help.

rochefort 10 has been probably my favorite quaff for a while now, finally getting around to reviewing the 8...

11.2oz bottle served in a trappistes rochefort chalice.

pours a murky, deep mahogany tone with a solid finger of creamy off-white head that demonstrates impressive retention. walls of lacing draped along the glass; good amount of sediment. nice appearance.

robust nose full of caramel malt, belgian yeast, and spice. a bit more fruity than the 10, but it's obvious they're related. alcohol is noticeable but not overpowering.

has a luscious fig/herbal/spicy vibrancy that plays on the palate. same malt and yeast presence that was evident in the nose. IMO not quite on the level of the 10 and has a very slight, vaguely astingent note to it, but very tasty nonetheless. a slightly bitter, warming boozy finish.

mouthfeel is luscious, medium plus bodied with average carbonation. for a BSDA this is insanely drinkable.

330mL Singleton (190814 07:39), Poured into Chalice.

A: Mahogany brown, light amber when held to light, thick. Lots of particulate matter (not sure if that's my pour, the bottle or just the beer).

S: Sweet and Dark ... Rich.

T: Tart and plummy, lots of bubbles, fades into a dry barley.

F: Bubbles! This thing is seriously chomping at the bubble bit. Feels like the thickest champagne in the known universe in the mouth.

D: Good overall, far too much carbonation for the thickness.

11.2oz bottle into tulip glass.

Caramel brown with thick toffee head and great retention. There is a fair amount of continuously rising carbonation with a ton of yeast sediment.

The aroma is quite subtle, though what I can detect are some earthy notes. There are also hints of some caramel malts mixed with raisins. I was hoping for a bit more of a strong nose.

The flavor is of more complex malts coming together to provide quite an enjoyable flavor. There are are also pleasant notes of dark fruit, though they are fairly subtle.
The flavors do thankfully become a bit more pronounced as it continues to warm.

The mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied, with some pleasant carbonation in the finish to keep it from becoming too heavy.

Though the flavors and aroma were not quite as upfront as I was expecting, this is easily the most drinkable Belgian dark ale that I have tried thus far. And while the flavors aren't as powerful as I hoped, they are still quite complex and enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: a deep brown ruby red color with two fingers of thin soapy head.

S: definitely more deeper and complex then 6. Some darker fruits make their presence. The sweetness goes from caramel to molasses.

T: molasses and brown sugar. Dark sticky raisins. A slight wine like character.

M: definitely more full bodied then 6. Creamery and smoother with a bit more carbonation.

Overall: a really really good beer. Lots of complexity and flavor. Very delicious. I like this one alot more then 6 and now I'm licking my chops to try 10. As with 6 when the sediment is poured In tons more flavor appears. Would definitely drink this again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a pretty clear slightly dark brown/burnt orange color with a moderate tan head. The head faded to a veil pretty quickly. Although the smell is not powerful, there are quite a few different aromas picked up. I get spiced apples, bubblegum, banana bread, raisins, and some cloves. Tastes are fairly similar, yet in a slightly different order. The clove hits first, followed by a burnt caramel, dark dried fruits (I smelled the raisin, but the taste is of cherries and figs.) The finish is slightly dry, but presents similar to a chardonnay. It's a grapy bitterness combined with a bit of alcohol. I really liked this facet. I was disappointed by Rochefort 10, but the 8 made up for it.

Served in tulip at nearly room temperature (no thermometer today).

A: Huge fluffy head, a very light pinkish brown in color. Body is a deep molasses. Quite a sight. Head settles to a thin covering.
S: Cherry flavored bubble gum, some caramel.
T: A wondrous concoction to be sure. Fennel, caramel, cherries, and some flavors that I just cannot place at the moment.
M: I had forgotten how great this felt in the mouth, perhaps unbeatable. Super creamy but not without a tangyness and carbonation to keep the tongue alive.
D: Yes yes and yes.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a nice dark brown color. The head is a thick two finger light brown foam head. The head dissipates into a small film. Minimal lace.

S: Aromas become more potent as it warms. At first sniff, there is a decent amount of dark fruit (plum, date, raisin), brown sugar and some bready malts.

T: This was a complex but delicious beer. A first taste, the dark fruit hits the palate. In the middle, the sweet brown sugar blends nicely with the dark fruit. On the back end, all the flavors, dark fruit, brown sugar, toast and caramel all come together.

M: Leaves a nice dry feeling on the palate.

D: The alcohol is over 9% but it is very well hidden. This is a spectacular Strong Beligan. Lots of malt flavor that blends exceptionally.

Appearance: Poured a turbid brown with big cap of khaki foam.

Smell: Yeast with muted scents of figs, raisins, cloves. Subtle alcohol. I expected a little more intensity out of the nose.

Taste: Raisins, pears, figs, plums, rumcake, slightly spicy - cloves. Mild alcohol presence. Subtle sweetness throughout but balanced by spiciness and finishes dry. Very nice, very complex.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with high carbonation tingling the tongue with bubbles.

Drinkability: Although complex and with a high ABV, it's very drinkable. But for the cost.

33 cl bottel poured into my Rochefort glass
Pours a dark brown color with a one-finger head

A: is full of plum and raisin with a hint of alcohol heat in the nose. A hint of caramel is present as well.

T: is sweet and full of caramel, plum and raisin flavors. Very easy to drink. well done to where only a hint of alcohol heat is present.

M: is full of lingering sweetness of the plum and raisin. Very nice once again. Almost deceptive for the amount of alcohol it has.

Overall, a very nice and drinkable beer! You might want to sip on it as it's deceptively easy to drink.

Poured from a bottle dated 210415 into a Duvel tulip...

A - Pours a deep mahogany color that has nice hints of ruby red when the light hits it certain ways. A nice foamy light tan color 1.5 finger head forms and retains its form quite well.

S - Very fuity and yeaty up front in the nose. Some great dark cherry aromas and other dark fruits. Some slight spice to it that seems to be clove like. Caramelized sugars seem to be present as well. very nice aromas coming from this glass.

T - Sweet dark fruit flavors come out right away with dark cherries, figs and dates most notably present. There are also some raisins and a slight spice detectable as well. A slight alcohol is noticable at the end of the palate, but it is not offensive in any way.

M - A great mouthfeel here for sure. Nice and buttery on the palate. Nothing too harsh or too little in this one. A slight carbonation that makes it feel slightly bubbly on the tongue.

D - Quite excellent. I got through the bottle pretty nicely before I noticed any real alchohol presence. This is one that I certainly will not pass up again in favor of the 10.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into my Chimay chalice.

Pours a very dark, nearly opaque mahogany brown. Big fluffy tan head that takes its damn sweet time in going away and leaves a lot of stringy lacing. I can see a bit of gunk collecting at the bottom, looks a bit chunky too. That seems normal for a beer like this, though. As soon as I uncapped this brew, my nose was immediately introduced to the rather assertive aroma of this beer. Lots of fruits, fig and raisin especially, with some plum as well. Some malts and yeast are detectable as well. Definitely one of the more distinctive smelling beers I've ever had the chance of sampling.

Taste has an initial malty sweetness that quickly transitions into some substantial breadiness accompanied by subtle nuances of fruits from the nose, including fig and dates. There's also some yeast detectable as well. Light bitterness, almost nothing from the hops. Towards the end you can taste just a bit of the alcohol, but it's not obtrusive or readily apparent. Finish is bready and slightly boozy. The aftertaste is where this brew really surprised me. As it washed over my palate, a very distinct flavoring of fig and date made an appearance, which was really quite pleasant. Definitely an unexpected treat. The beer is medium-bodied, with a smooth finish and a good amount of carbonation to keep things interesting. Very well-balanced.

Before I knew it, my glass was almost down to nothing! With a very unique and pleasing flavor profile and a superb mouthfeel, this is quite a drinkable brew. The 9.2% ABV is masked very well. Definitely the best example of a Belgian beer I've had yet and it almost certainly raises my interest and expectations of the other Trappistes Rochefort beers.

4.1/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle at ~45°F into a tulip glass. Dark brown beer, hazy with good amount of carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass. Even pouring gently into the glass, there was an initial three fingers of fluffy tan colored head. Head retention is excellent, clinging heartily to the glass and leaving lacy foam at the glass. A beautiful example of the type of beer Belgian yeast and brewing can create.

Nose is yeasty, with some raisins and clove. I was expecting a little more aroma, given such a huge head on the beer, but it's still pretty nice.

Taste is a little spicier than what the nose indicates, with raisin and plum. Alcohol is very present mid tongue, tasting like a rum soaked bread, and lingers on the tongue.

Medium bodied beer with high carbonation is fairly aggressive on the tongue, delivering the flavor to your taste buds.

Fairly drinkable despite the high abv.

Overall, a pretty good beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Deep mahogony color, rich browns. Little plum of carb floats on top with a ring of off white head. The aromas are lots of dried fruits, raisins, prunes, cherries and cranberries; also dark belgian candy sugar and sweet estery belgian yeast. The flavor is heavily fruity and kinda sweet without being cloying. Rich and malty and still a bit dry. This beer feels buttery in your mouth with just the slightest amount of carb. A little hot from the alcohol but otherwise lovely on a cool evening.

Served in a Westmalle chalice at 12 degrees Celsius

A: dark red brownish, almost no head, slight to no lace.

S: Brown sugar, spices, dark sweet malts, bread.

T: Sweet, bitter, kind of buttery taste, the alcohol it's very present, raisins.

It's a very good beer kind of strong for me the alcohol make me feel like I'm drinking a hard liquor, but it's a round beer that it's going to need a couple of tries before the final verdict.

3.95/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Aroma here is very rich. Carmelized sugar, dark fruits and rich malt. Very deep. If an aroma can be thick, this is it.

Pours a deep, cloudy amber color. Head is about a half an inch thick....quickly dissapates.

Taste is a lot like the aroma. The body is primarily made up of dark fruit...raisins....brown sugar. Fairly sweet from front to back, there isn't much deviation on the flavor profile throughout. The alcohol is noticeable from the first sip, even when cold. It isn't to the point of being detracting, but it is certainly there. Very little hop bitterness here at all. Finish is fairly dry. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin, not quite as thick as I had expected.

Reminds me of a dopplebock with some sweetness reduced, higher carbonation, a thinner consistancy, and with a boozier finish.

I thought it was a pretty good beer, although for the price I can't see myself returning to it for the simple fact that I believe I can get beers that are similar to this for a lot less money. That said, I did enjoy it for what it is.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

This is absolutely incredible and one of the shining stars among Belgian beers in my opinion: complex, full-bodied, balanced and characterful with full flavour yet lots of subtlety.

Hazy brown-red amber, it has a huge tan head steadily shrinking to a lasting tin foamy top and leaves some foamy lace.

Aroma is incredibly wonderful - lots of toast, caramelised bread crust, ginger bread, caramelised plums, raisins & golden figs, then fresh plums, wood, and more. It is rich and complex.

Taste is similarly incredible, complex with lots of zingy herbal wood, rich caramelised bread & spices, lots of rich fruit, esp. plums, caramelised dried fruits. Mostly balanced, it has a faint lean to the sweet side. Despite strong flavour and rich complexity, it is incredibly easy to drink.

Hmm, a nice dark mahogany body with a tan head that sits about an inch thick and quickly settles into a nice lace around the glass.

Smells a bit estery with a dark fruit presence. Opens up at bit as it warms, giving of more spicy notes.

Taste is a bit estery and noticeably spicy. These monks really know what they're doing here. A light toasted malt backbone before the yeast really comes in and takes over. Alcohol gives a warm presence without being harsh.

Mouthfeel is smooth with a medium body feel. Overall a great BSDA there really defines the style.

Poured into a Dogfish Head goblet

A- red/brown, darker than the 6 with a creamy white head

S- malty breads just like the 6 with a bit more of the alcohol in the nose

T- Sweet bready malts at first, fruit works its way in there, nice complexity

M- Smooth, creamy, good carbonation (right on the edge of too much/enough) to balance out the creaminess

D- complex flavor mixed combined with the mouthfeel is awesome!

updated review:

bottle stamped 070715. appearance the same. aroma is better, more malty aroma- but still a bit of that odd "scented dishsoap" smell. I still think the taste is a bit one-noted, but it's better. mouthfeel is the same.

updated score: 5/3.5/3.5/3/3.5

***
330ml bottle. stamped 141014, which I understand to be "best by October 14, 2014". based on research, they are dated 5 years out from bottling.

initial pour into snifter is limited to 2/3 of the bottle, as the creamy head builds to about 3 inches thick and threatens to overflow the glass. a dark chesnutt brown color, but competely opaque, even when held to the light. smell is a wierd boozy soapy aroma.
oddly, the taste seems to lack the typical complex flavor of the style. raisin is the only flavor I pick up. not terrible, just very dissapointing.
mild carbonation and medium body.

based on the discriptions in the other reviews, I really wonder if I got a bad bottle. I'll try to pick up another one when I get the chance and re-review. I'll just give it the average 3 on drinkability for now.

Well, after trying the 10, I waited patiently to try this again. Now I have... Wow. Poured from the bottle into a snifter.

A: Pours a nice, dark brown. Very foggy brew, I can't see through the glass at all. The head pours nice, creamy, and frothy. Very thick. It dissipates a little, but what's left behind are layers of lace sticking to the glass.

S: Delicious maltiness. Caramel, brown sugar, candy.... Heck, it smells kind of like freshly baked cookies. WOW! After this, I can't wait to taste the darn thing. Very deep and complex.

T: Oh my God. Very sweet brew at first. Tastes almost like cinnamon bread when it touches my tongue. Incredibly sweet, with so much going on I'm playing catch-up with my palate. It doesn't end there, though. After a few moments, it gives way to spicy cloves and just a slight, alcohol twist at the finish. Amazing, really.

M: The body is creamy, albeit kind of light. There's a vague warming that happens thanks to the booze. Perfect carbonation.

D: If this were more affordable, I'd buy it all of the time. Alas, I'm stuck with buying Rochefort by the bottle, and normally only one. That's the beer's biggest downside... I'll take it.

Overall/notes: Once again, Trappistes Rochefort absolutely blows me away. Perhaps it's a notch down from their 10, but it's not a big difference. This is a must for any beer drinker, really. It made for great company while I was doing my homework.

330ml bottle into Chimay chalice because I don't have a Rochefort one. Best by 4-7-15, enjoyed on 8-25-2010. 1cm light tan head quickly reducing to thin layer of bubbles. Hazy brown color with light purple tint. Maybe the width of the chalice is adversely affecting the perception of clarity.

Aroma of raisins, fresh pine needles and pine bark, toasted cracker/bread, just a hint of charcoal smoke somehow too. Taste initially grapefruit and light pepper, then dried figs, dates, and sweet malt slowly pop up and lasts through a drying bitter aftertaste on the roof of my mouth.

Carbonation feels very crisp but passes quickly, a bit like a quick shot of grapefuit soda. Finishes feeling very nicely balanced. The 9.2% ABV is superbly hidden in the flavors and lingering aftertaste. This would be quite drinkable except for getting plastered from the high ABV. Great stuff, which there had been more than just 1 bottle left at the store when I got it!
