More “research” tonight with a chalice of Rochefort 8. My local grocery stores all just received major restocks of Rochefort, Chimay, and Westmalle.

I,lol be curious to take a look at the color on the 8, as well as the 10 that’s in the fridge. I have a feeling BLAM may have overestimated the colors on these.

I think 15, 24, 32 may be more appropriate then 20, 32, 45 (6, 8, and 10 respectively).

What about the possibility that the color has changed since then?  Last time I had a Rochefort it seemed lighter than I recalled.

Having  had another 8 last week, the color is definitely lighter than I recall.  Of course, memory is an inexact thing, but still....

Came across this the other day:

It states the OG of the 6 is 1.066, and the ABV is 7.5% (which would put the finishing gravity around 1.009).
