4.18/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

An amalgam of notes from: 1)Bottle into real pint glass in high altitude Denver, CO, and 2)Bottle into La Trappe Goblet in Belgium.

A: Pours a dark tan with a three finger head featuring yeasty dregs. Wonderful cream and thickness. Good retention.

Sm: Musty, yeasty, hoppy. Alcohol is very apparent. Chocolate, caramel, and nuts. Complex. A light strength scent, excepting the alcohol.

T: Sour. Lots of yeast. An injection of the alcohol complements the notes from the nose, particularly the nutty hops. Creamy. Hoppy. Balanced and good. Excellent for the style (is there a truly bad quadrupel?). There's almost a note of milk.

Mf: Too smooth until the climax. Creamy, delicately soft. Complements the notes in the body.

Dr: Doesn't hide its ABV as well as their other offerings. In Denver, I'd have it again, but its price is quite high. In Belgium, it's easily affordable.

05.10.14: truncated re-review. Side-by-side with an Abt 12 and a Westvleteren 12.

A: Pours entirely foam - gorgeous creamy pale khaki goodness. Great fluffy frothy head overall. Excellent (~9 minute) retention. Body is a nontransparent dark reddish brown. Floating yeast is visible in the body.

Gorgeous looking beer overall.

Sm: Delightful dark fruit with impeccable subtlety. Plum, fig, dates. Dark Belgian malts. Damn good aroma for a quadrupel.

Mf: Almost perfectly coarse and dry to coax out the flavours. Near perfectly carbonated. Texture complements the taste very well. Still, it's not as delicate or fragile as the best quad.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, or harsh.

T: Dark fruits are the star here - plum, fig, dates, prunes. Belgian dark malts. Cream. Great balance and build. I'm digging it. Good depth, duration, and intensity of flavour. Amazing subtlety. Near gestalt build.

O: One of the best quads out there, definitely. But not the best. Certainly deserves to be on any Top 10 quadrupel list. They don't make 'em much better.

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.
