A - 3+ finger, long lasting, cream colored head, leaving thick lacing on the glass. Incredible amounts of yeast left in the bottle (bottom and sides). Thick, pure dark color from a nut brown pour. Holding up to the light reveals tons of yeast or malts out of suspension (slight detraction for me).
S - Cherries, prunes, dates, candi. Well blended and medium.
T - Initial notes of nuts, followed immediately by sweet cherries, prunes, banana, and candi sugar, followed yet again by a nutty malt, and finished with a wave of cherry sweetness. Some spices come through as it warms.
M - A little sharp and bubbly. Chewy; starts to foam in my mouth as I let it sit and chew on it. Slightest bit of warmth from the alcohol (11.3%!). Coats the mouth in sediment and yeast, especially as the beer warms, leaving an additional, lingering sweetness.
O - I really like quads, and this is the best I've had so far. I can't really imagine improving on the taste. Maybe I'll be forced to re-review after having Westy or St. B, but for now, this is one of the top beers I've ever had.
Bottle date says 140317; not sure how to read it, so I don't know how aged this is or is not.

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.
