Trappistes Rochefort 8

$5.99 33cL bottle, Arbor Place Beverage, Douglasville, GA, USA.

Very similar to the Rochefort 6.

A very large head came with this pour, with a significant amount of sediment despite a careful pour. Not sure about that at all.

The overwhelming experience here for me is alcohol and that really wasn’t to my liking. Like the “6” I found the appearance less than attractive with the dirty brown cloudiness being the overall impression. My wife described the aroma as that of, “Old Barrels”, that I took to be a compliment!

This beer is warm on the way down, and obviously has a high ABV, but I feel it is lacking in charm, drinkability and subtlety. I don’t dislike it, but like the “6” I feel it represents very poor value for money. I can understand the appeal, just not my cuppa!
