Details

Trappiste de Rochefort are top-fermented, bottle-conditioned beers, brewed within the Saint-R?my Abbey in Rochefort, Belgium.

Interestingly, this beer was originally only brewed for New Year's Eve. Fortunately, this Trappist strong-dark ale from Rochefort is now available year-round! And good thing too: its rich maltiness, brown sugar, dried fruits, is not one to miss. While this beer tastes rather sweet at the beginning, some spicy notes, high carbonation, and a semi-dry finish help to balance it out. Aromas of dried fruits, caramel, spice, and a warming alcohol just add to its elegance and richness.

Rochefort Brewery is a Belgian Trappist brewery and has been brewing beer at the monastery since 1595--to this day using water that is drawn from a well within the monastery itself. In order to be a certified Trappist brewery it must meet the requirements that excess profits, beyond the monastery's operating expenses, are to be used for charitable endeavours.

This is my favourite beer.

Dark, nutty, full bodied, flavourful, sipping heaven.

Not one to be glugged and perfect for a night in front of fire on a winters day.

It is the Goldielocks 'just right' the 6 is not flavoursome enough and the 10 knocks your head off.

Buy now, by the case if you can....

The Rochefort beers are amongst the best in the world with their rich fruity and spicy flavours. If you are not sure which to drink take the middle road and go for the 8.
