Ah, the mighty prestigious Rochefort 10... in my snifter... at cellar temperature.
A two-finger, pale-tan head which dissipates quickly. The color is the deepest, darkest, haziest ruby color it could be. Nice.
Smells like vanilla, brandy, and raisins. Maybe some maple syrup too. It's a REALLY nice scent.
The aroma describes the taste to a great extent, but with even more of the dark fruits. It has a fruity richness (...or rich fruitiness?) reminiscent of red wine, but more earthy. Tastes boozy. And of raisins and prunes.
The feel is viscous but spritzy. Feels like a HEFTY Belgian ale, which it is.
I don't know if it's good enough to warrant ten dollars for just under 12 ounces (By Bacchus! that's expensive!), but putting the price aside... It's a really good Belgian ale.

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.
