Thanks to my new found friend Andersand for buying this one from a store in Denmark. Really cool to finally try the one most hyped beer in the world!
Westvleteren 12 pours a clear, deep amber color with a nice white-ish foam. Looks quite nice, but you don't know what to expect.
Aroma is really promising on this one. Lots of burnt sugar, belgo yeast, but also some really amazing wineous notes. Really good aroma anyways, but I've smelled trappists that smell better!
Taste is amazing! Definetively the greatest tasting of all the Trappistes. Lots of burnt almonds, belgo yeast and nice hints of dried fruits. The alcohol is perfectly warming, not disturbing in any way. I was expecting to get dissapointed, as I think it's so hyped, but it surprised me, in a good way!
If you get the chance, try it. But don't pay like 80 USD for it, there are better beers out there!
