Beer Review: Trappistes Rochefort 8

Style: Dubbel
ABV: 9.2%

Fun Fact About the Brewery:

Brasserie de Rochefort started brewing way the hell back in 1595 in the Abbey of Notre-Dame de Saint-RĂ©me. They pretty much only make 3 beers and this is one of them. Quality over quantity, you guys.


So they make the 6, 8 and 10, with the 6 being the lightest and the 10 being the strongest. The 8 seems like a happy medium. Like all Dubbels, this one is nicely carbonated with tons of delicious malt with dark fruit flavors, namely figs. Goes down very smooth and the high ABV is actually pretty well hidden. Rochefort probably wouldn't still be making beer for four centuries if it wasn't some world class shit, so yeah, it's delicious. I hear the 10 is even better, so I'll try that next.

Rating: 4.25/5
