Pours amber brown, with a sustaining white head with lots of lace.

Oh the smell. A complicated mix of raisins, chocolate and lemons. Also some alcohol here.

Fruitcake roast chocolate flavor. Sweet and malty with an ever so lite noble hop presence.

Nice "Belgian" carbonation and full rich body. I'm very impressed with this beer, Long live Belgium!

I am a bit bias toward the Trappist beers. When I first heard about the Westvleteren I just had to find it. When I finally got a taste it was the most amazing experience. It felt as if I was tasting history. That got me excited about the Trappist beers in general and then I finally found the Westmalle and Rochefort beers. I have to say they are just as amazing. This guy, even at a 7% abv, is highly drinkable. It has a great brown sugar taste and just makes me tingle. The dubbel and tripel are just so good. Nice sweet smell and just hits the palette in a way that makes you want more. I would recommend this to anyone. My fiance does not care much for beer and this one she even liked.
