4.93/5 rDev +9.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Appearance: Poured into tall 12 oz Belgian chalice. Dark brown with copper hues. 1 inch tan head that vanishes fairly quickly. Some brown, compacted yeast at the bottom even after carefully pouring but a little more expected for a BDS and/or Quad.
Smell: Dark cocoa, slight alcohol smell, chewy dates
Taste: Out of this world. My all time favorite beer out of any style. BA reviewer and pro ratings are spot on - this is a world class beer. I get dark, slightly burnt cocoa - even more complex than the D-180 taste. Chewy rummy date, dark fruits, slight warming alcohol. I get some toasty marshmallow as it warms - debittered black, Cara-something in there along with the Special B. This is much, much more complex than just dark candi syrup/sugar and dark fruit. Any home brewer that can come close to its likeness has a gem on their hands.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, dry, chewy, sumptuous and gets even better as it warms. A real treat to savor.
Overeall: For 11.3 abv, the complexity really masks the boozy flavor - be careful - you'll be feeling great halfway through! This is to slowly enjoy and so I have numerous times over. This is a dark, masterful potion.

ever since reading about Trappist beers, I've always wanted to get my hands on one. being that I come from a long line of priests and a bishop, it made the style even more intriguing. I figured I would never find one, at least in my area. well, I took a trip to ocean city, MD and made a stop at Anthony's with the intent on finding a bottle of something new. sitting on the top self was a bottle of the Trappist beer 2nd on my list, don't think I will ever see a westvletern XII. I couldn't wait to get home and try it! I poured it into a silver goblet used by my grandfather (who was a bishop). all I can say about this beer is it is truly amazing....everything about it! definitely at the top of my list. there's beers out there on my favorites that are based a lot off of my personal drinking experience. For instance, erdinger because of the one I had in a small bar in Munich that opened my mind to German beers and even rolling rock (yeah, its a favorite) because it reminds me of my grandfather. however, this beer is my number one solely on taste, can't imagine there's a better beer out there.
