Sent by Lou91 in a beer trade. Best if consumed by 3/7/07 but I couldn't wait that long. Pours light to medium brown in color. Looks darker brown in the glass. Foam develops and fills over half the glass. Carbonation bubbles appear large in size. Aroma through lots of foam is of nuts and spices. Taste is a litle of cardboard perhaps damaged in the shipment? Mouthfeel is exquisite, very silky smooth. Taste is of nuts, very subdued not overpowering in any way. Taste is a little like grapeseed. This reminds me of Westy 12 a little bit. High ABV is hidden very well. No alcohol burn. A little bit of evaporating alcohol if held on the tongue for a while.

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.
