An exceptional Belgian Trappist beer with, jammy stone-fruit and spice flavours
dark strong ale
Stone-fruit, dark malt
Toffee, plum jam, spices, chocolate
Rochefort 8 is a Trappist beer produced by the monks of the Abbaye de Rochefort near Namur, Belgium. Using carefully selected ingredients, Rochefort 8 was originally intended as a Christmas brew, but due to popular demand it is now in constant production, becoming one of the most popular beers in the range.
Pouring mahogany with a fine lacy head, Rochefort 8 boasts an impressively aromatic bouquet composed of toasted cocoa, dark malts, and jammy, figgy fruit notes.
Continuing the theme, the palate is dominated by spicy flavours which develop into softer chocolate and round caramel traits.
This well-balanced classic is the perfect match for rich red-meat stews.
