The mouth feel is one of a kind...explosive. It is not 10 or 12 but I will gladly spend the $6 a bottle. Every time. All those fruit and dried fruit combinations that the seniors have, on a session level. Great.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
330ml bottle poured in its own chalice.
I’ve kept this beers stored for almost three years before open it. Best before 7th of June, 2011. Consumed at 15th of March, 2012 in perfect condition. Completely alive beer :)
A: Pours a nutty brown color and a big light beige head. Fizzy and "alive" carbonation. Good retention, it never disappeared leaving a thin small bubbled head. No lacings and a lot of dark particles floating around
S: Very bready. Very yeasty. Fruity, but moderate on these regards. Caramel malts. Hints of roasted malts. Toffee. Hints of alcohol
T: Follows the nose: Brown breauud, caramel malts, toffee, dark fruits, Belgian yeasts. A bit sweet upfront and a very moderate bitterness. Alcohol sensation
M: Medium creamy and bit molasses body. Moderate carbonation
O: Honestly: Fantastic beer! Despite of the hype around Westys, there’s no way to deny that, this is a just another perfect beer made by the Sint Sixtus monks

I would leave all my other ratings (forgive me Abbey de Scourmont) where they are. This beer maybe even a bit sexier than the Abt 12 Godfather version. Full of so much passion and decadence, this beer blows every other beer to wayside.
