No. 8 isn't my lucky one
Actually I'm a big fan of Trappist beers. I had a Trappist Rochefort. At the beginning I thought that this might be a very good idea to have.
It started with a very stable foam on top of dark brown liquid. The smell was good, found it fruity, sour, little earthy, solvent like and yeasty. This is what I would usually expect from this brewing methods and the high alcohol content.
On the taste side you can feel the strong alcohol, its warming and sweatiness, a too strong carbonation and a little acetic. Back to the carbonation: I would say that it somehow felt like sparkling wine. Which is a little awful for a beer. But anyway this Trappist didn't make a friend in me.
The beer was poured from a bottle.
