4.35/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Bottle poured into a glass
Aroma- Slightly sour smelling with hints of fruit cherry and tobacco. Vinous and buttery
Appearance- cloudy brown with a light tan head. Coarse tan head that dissipates quickly. slight legs on the glass and no lacing.
Taste- fruity and funky. cherry plum raisin blackberry slight spicey-ness (clove all spice). a touch of black Olive maybe... Alot in common with a Port or Wine than a beer. Jammy- but not overly sweet. The Hop character really settles out as it warms. also hints of carmel and molasses in the finish. It is definitely a treat for those into the belgian style.
Mouthfeel- slightly over-carbed but slick with subtle alcohol warming.maybe a little cough syrup-y not in a bad way
Overall- wow I could see myself enjoying this with a cigar or towards the end of a heavy meal I think it would pair well with lamb or prime rib any sort of rich savory dish. I don't know if i could handle multiple pours of this one but it does taste pretty darn good. This style can come on pretty strong and can sometimes be too sweet but I am really enjoying it.

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.
