Trappistes Rochefort is one of the world’s most treasured breweries, and is certainly a jewel in Belgium brewing’s rather large crown. It only produces 3 beers, due to its commitments to God first, the brewery is always second, and they only produce what they need to sell to keep the monastery going. Their 8 is the middle brew, and is often regarded as the ‘special’.
It is a Belgian Dubbel which is reflected in its dark copper colour and its complex aroma of raisins, bananas and dates. It has a smooth, rich taste before a herbal finish with fruit notes. This top fermented ale can be paired beautifully with cheese and stews.
