A big, dark ale with a thick, bubbly head. The nose is of strong dark fruits and some clean alcohol mixed with esters and a subtle smokey phenolic character. The taste is similar, this particular bottle has a stronger alcohol burn than previous bottles I had. Carbonation pop up front with a nice dark raisiny malt to follow with phenolic fruit and esters, touch of smoke, some peppery yeast, and as it finishes some sweet pilsner malt comes in. The mouthfeel is crisp on the front and drying on the back.
Overall, this is an exceptional beer, one of the best Quads out there. Maybe a little expensive, afterall I could get a 750ml bottle of Chimay Grand Reserve for a dollar more where I live, but it is well-deserved of its praise.

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.
