Rochefort Trappist
"8" or Green Cap

The History of "8"

Originally called "Sp├ęcial," Rochefort 8 dates to the mid-1950s. The name comes from the original gravity in "Belgian degrees."


Deep brown color; the flavor is vigorous and complex, with firm body to support the strength. The aroma has elusive notes of fresh fruit, spice, leather, and figs.

Serving Suggestion

Great with full-flavored dishes like pate, duck, or wild game; shows well with strong-flavored cheeses. Also wonderful alone as an aperitif. Serve in traditional Rochefort stemmed goblet.
