"Originally called 'Spécial,' Rochefort 8 dates to the mid-1950s. The name comes from the original gravity in 'Belgian degrees.' Deep brown color; the flavor is vigorous and complex, with firm body to support the strength. The aroma has elusive notes of fresh fruit, spice, leather, and figs." —importer
"Appearance: Fluffy light tan lace foams up during pouring but the lace struggles to hold together. Murky brown colour with a haze that blocks out any chance of light.

"Smell: Mild rum alcohol in the nose, fruity with ripe banana, pear and fig. Vague phenols with mellowed out alcoholic esters give a hard whiff of alcohol again.

"Taste: Silky smooth, creamy alcohol and malt mouth feel that glides through the mouth and down the throat. Grain, phenols, and alcohol form to a head at first taste with a spicy character that does not take things over but is more of a showing of what is in store. Maltiness is close to huge going from brown sugar to brownies, dark bread to mild coffee. Alcohol runs the gamut with a sweet and spicy flavour to a fruitiness of ripe tropical fruit...fig and apricots come to mind. Phenolic but not to the point of being medicinal, clove spiciness rounds and balances the sweetness far into the finish.

"Notes: Hard line in the aroma and flavour with a mellowed aged flavour from a bottle that has been around for a while, this age has not taken way from the beer at all other than its head retention perhaps. Ripe and fruity, malty and alcoholic. The complexity alone is staggering for the taste buds." —Jason Alström, BeerAdvocate
