After a long absence in this market I finally saw some more of this stuff, with a best before date of 10/14/12 which i assume means it was bottled in October of 2007. Pours a nearly opaque mahogany with a thick cola head. The aroma has some intense dark fruit notes upfront, along with some candied sugar sweetness, bread like yeastiness, some spices (corriander, cardamom, anise), and a touch of alcohol. The flavor is similar to the aroma, with a big dark fruit (plum, grape, fig, blackberry) presence upfront, along with a burnt bread flavor, some spiciness (corriander and anise), a slight hint of floral hops, and a nice alcohol presence that isnt overwhelming. The mouthfeel is smooth with moderate carbonation and drinkability is excellent for the style. Overall an excellent quad, drinkable and complex...hopefully this one isnt as scarce around here in the future.

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.
