Brasserie Rochefort "Trappistes Rochefort 8"
Belgian Strong Ale (ABV 9.2%)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 4.4/5.0

Aroma: 9/10
Appearance: 5/5
Taste: 9/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 17/20

Poured a unfiltered muddy brown with bits yeast particles floating in it with a large light brown creamy head that had excellent lacing. The aroma was quite intense of sweet chocolate malts and an earthy yeast with notes of molasses, figs and plums. It tasted smooth and sweet with a slight acidic-alcohol flavor in the beginning and ended slightly sweet with hints of chocolate, dried friut and a mild alcohol aftertaste that lasted quite a while. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and very creamy yet oily in texture with a surprisingly lively carbonation. Overall I can sum it up in one word, YUM!!!!
