The Brü Revü – Rochefort Trappistes 8
Rochefort is back in Texas! This may not be big news to some, but it hasn’t been available here for several years. Now it is officially back. My dad picked up some of the Rochefort 8 and was nice enough to let me try one. This is a step down from their 10, but it was still phenomenal. It poured an opaque brown with a decent head and lots of spices, sweet malts, and caramel in the aroma. The taste was deep and complex, while not as intense as its bigger brother it was still big and bold. The 8 is still ranked as one of the best beers in the world and it was mmm mmm good. It’s great to have it back in Texas.
