12 oz bottle, dated 06/27/12. Poured into a Westy XII Chalice.
Appearance: Dark brown, opaque, half a finger of head without much retention, minimal lacing.
Smell: Raisins, figs, grapes, apples. Quite sweet.
Taste: Extremely sweet with a nice malty syrup quality. Same fruit character as the nose, with mainly figs and apples. Hides the 11% ABV amazingly.
Mouthfeel: Moderately carbonated, a little less so than other quads. Sticky, wet, smooth.
Overall: Really a world-class quad. Perhaps a little too sweet for some people, but so easy to drink, hides the alcohol so well, it's really a treat. $7/12oz means that I won't enjoy this every day, but on special occasion, it's the best quad sold in America, and I'm lucky to have it readily available.

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.
