Enjoyed as part of my birthday celebration
Appearance - The beer pours a black/brown colour with a very large frothy light brown coloured head. I can't see much carbonation due the darkness of the beer and there is some faint lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it began to dissipate.
Smell - malts, dates, an earthiness, molasses, a smokiness
Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation and it comes across as slightly creamy on the tongue. I can taste lots of malts, dark fruits (dates?), and molasses. I can also pick up on notes of chocolate and a smokiness/earthiness. It finishes with a dark fruit malty after taste and leaves a but of a warming feeling in my chest.
Drink - The alcohol was extremely well hidden and you'd never know it was a 11% beer. The Drinkability is amazing and it makes the perfect winter warmer/sipper beer.

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.
