look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured from a bottle into a Westvleteren goblet.

A - Dark brownish-purple with a bit of off-white head from a fairly vigorous pour. Small head but decent lacing. Looks very inviting.

S - This beer smells better than 95% of other beers taste. Seriously. Deep, dark raisin, fig, plum, caramel, candi syrup, and red wine grapes. The nose on this stuff is truly remarkable - so much so, that I find myself taking 2 deep inhales before most sips.

T - Follows the nose, more or less, with the caramel/candi/dark fruit flavors lingering on the tongue in the most delightful way possible. The finish is like a fine wine, but even smoother. It's worth waiting a couple of minutes between sips just to savor this one. After the incomparable smell, the taste delivers in spades. Alcohol is in the background for maybe the first sip, but this beer is so well balanced, that it's pleasant for the few sips where it's even noticable.

M - Syrupy, but the right amount - enough to coat the tongue in order to deliver all the flavor and balance the alcohol, but not too much to be cloying. Carbonation is low, but that's right on for the style.

O - This is the best beer in the world. It easily outclasses every barrel-aged stout, Double/Triple IPA, Belgian quad, and other beer I've tried, and I've tried just about all of the best. Nothing really even comes close to delivering the experience from pour, to 5 minutes after the last sip like Rochefort 10. Westy 12 is pretty close, but I think Rochefort 10 suffers in its rankings from being widely available in the States if you're willing to pay for it, because it's better than even Westy 12 in my opinion. This beer is an experience like no other - fresh, aged, it doesn't matter, you won't find a better beer anywhere. Find it, buy it, horde it, and drink one whenever you feel like drinking the best beer ever made.
