You will like to know that…

The world of Belgian beers is vast and delicious. With so many gems waiting to be discovered, there are certain beers that you simply cannot let pass you by. Without any doubt, one of those beers that must be tried is Trappistes Rochefort 8. Also known as "Green Cap" to differentiate it from its Rochefort siblings, this deep brown beer has been voted one of the best beers in the world on various occasions.

A rich ale with a full body to back up the depth of flavours it contains, Trappistes Rochefort 8 is a spicy, chocolatey, bittersweet product that any beer lover ought to enjoy. This beer is brewed at the Abbaye Note-Dame de Saint-Remy by Trappist monks. The number 8 in its name is in reference to its gravity in traditional Belgian degrees. What began as a special release in the 1950s, quickly grew in popularity, causing the monks to thankfully decide to make this special beer on a regular basis.

Assertive and fruity, this chocolate-coloured beer weighs in at a hefty 9.2% alcohol by volume. The alcohol content is beautifully balanced by the flavour profile, though, so it never overpowers the palate. This is a beer made for savouring with excellent company and any flavourful food that can hold its own against a beer this good.

Riquísima, me gustan mucho las cervezas de abadía trapista. No te hace falta acompañarla, para degustarla sola, una delicia.

4 /5

Rochefort 8 ha sido mi segunda experiencia con las cervezas trapistas, después de la Chimay, y nada que ver...
De color es muy oscura, casi negra. De sabor es densa, profunda, con una textura muy cremosa, con sabores a cacahuetes tostados y pan horneado, y el amargor del lúpulo siempre presente.
Para entendernos, me paeció una mezcla entre la Chimay y la Guiness. Muy buena.
