Served full 11oz bottle into tulip.

A: Very nice thick cream colored head on top of a nice deep rich brown ale. Head dissipates slowly but laces very nicely.

S: Starts off with rich dark fruit and dark malty sweetness, a hint of yeast gives it some robustness along with just a whiff of the alcohol heat. I wish I could scent my room with it.

T: Lots of complex flavors, the dark fruit and malts give this brew a nice start keeping things light. Fruity/malty sweetness has a hint of dark chocolate that leads into some hints of yeast that give an excellent filling flavor. The alcohol slowly creeps in becoming more apparent towards the end that gives a nice palate cleansing effect while still retaining a touch of cereal/grains in the aftertaste. Simply amazing...

M: Excellent light-syrupy mouthfeel that I find all Trappist ales to possess, coating the mouth well and allowing all the flavors to have the greatest effect while balancing well with the carbonation that keeps it from becoming to overbearing. Loved it....

Overall I'll definitely be drinking this often for special occasions, a great relax and enjoy brew.

From notes.

2010 bottle into Duvel tulip.

A - pours a hazy chocolate brown with ruby highlights and minimal tan head. No lacing.

S - prunes, figs, caramel, fresh baked banana bread, licorice, stone fruits, and faint chocolate.

T - stone fruits, caramel, toasted bread, burnt chocolate, tobacco. Some astringency.

M - medium-full (candi sugar dried it out), but I was left wanting a tad more carbonation.

O - not quite Westy XII, but still great. Definately better with some age on it, but the low carbonation made this bottle a tad too sweet for me.

128th Review
Bottle to Westvletren 12 (small) chalice

From notes. This was beer #2 that was enjoyed as part of a blind Quad tasting - to warm our palates before the real tasting - in Utrecht (December 2011). Thanks Jeffo and doopiedoopiedoo for the hospitality!

A: Deep tint of brown. 0.5 (mocha) fingernail head on Jeffo's pour - I was being honest.

S: Currants, caramelized brown sugar, toffee, coffee, and plums. Hint of sour funk though which was weird.

T: Taste a bit better than it smells, but still seems a bit off.

M: Medium-full bodied with soft carbonation.

O: This was my least favorite of the five being poured, but I think the bottle may have been off. We had a lengthy discussion about this, but I don't really remember what the conclusion was. I'll come back to it again at some point in the future and probably re-review it just for kicks.

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

A: murky brown, semi translucent

S: sweet fruit, dates

T: dates, vanilla, lemon, oak

M: medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth

O: well balanced, extremely drinkable for over 10% ABV. What hasn't been said about this beer? The most complex beer I've ever drank, yet it it's still smooth as silk. Any further criticism would not only make me look a fool, but discredit everyone who was involved in producing this masterpiece. I wish I had more. So much more.
