TRAPPISTS ROCHEFORT 8

Could it be that I like consecutive Belgian beers? No, no, it could not be. This is the 8, which means jumping from mid sevens in alcomahol to mid nines. 

In the jump from 6 to 8, the only person to get a gold star is the one who imposed some discipline on the 6's overly boisterous bubbles.

For everyone else... It tastes like they just took a 6 and dumped in shots of cheap cognac until it ticked the target alcohol level, then went home. No stars for you.

You can taste hints of cherry and apple and even some herbish hints, but by the time you've swallowed, it's all been overwhelmed by an icky, sticky cognac burst.

 

3/10
