Rochefort 6, 8, and 10

Last night we shot over to see our friends Sean and Kerry in Waltham. We played a game called Tobogo. We then played some Mexican Train Dominoes. Both games are a ton of fun and I recommend trying out either.

I wanted to bring some review beer over so I shared my Rochefort 6, 8, and 10. For a while I have been thinking that I wanted to share the bottles given how boozy they are: 7.5%, 9.2%, and 11.3% respectively. The numbers on the bottle seem to just be the name of the beer (I originally thought they were relative to aging). Someone more educated can jump in with a comment here if there is something more to the 6, 8, 10.

We drank these in order of booziness, which seemed appropriate. The Rochefort 6 can be described as yeasty/bready and not as sweet as one might expect. In fact, it was quite drinkable! The carbonation was out of control, which surprised us all.

The Rochefort 8 was slightly darker in color and was almost as easy to drink. Then again, we were splitting 11.2 ounce bottles three ways. The 8 was much less fizzy than the 6, but also more sweet (brown sugar). We all noticed a ridiculous amount of sediment in the 8.

Finally, we moved on to the Rochefort 10. It was big, spicy and tasted like figs or raisins. A HUGE beer, but delicious all the same.

I thought all three were really good beers. None of them knocked my socks off.
