ROCHEFORT Trappistes 8 - 330ml
Soft and rich, with hints of dried fruit and Christmas pudding. Long finish, carrying its weight very well.
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.
