4.18/5 rDev -7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 11.2 oz. bottle (dated 071014) into a Chimay goblet.
Appearance: Pours an opaque chocolate brown with a 2 finger thick and foamy tan head with a large amount of sediment in the head and throughout the beer. Nice lacing throughout.
Smell: Obvious smell of alcohol mixed with dried fruits and just a hint of malted sweetness.
Taste: Very complex flavor which mixes sweet dried fruits and spices up front. Hints of malt and caramel in the middle and just a hint of something medicinal. The alcohol is fairly strong at the finish and provides a nice warming sensation.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with a high amount of carbonation and a distinct alcohol bite.
Drinkability: Very high drinkability, especially considering the very high ABV. This is one to drink slowly and savor.
Overall: A top quality beer all around. There is a reason this beer is rated so highly. If you see it, buy 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.
