Deep, cloudy burgundy pour with flecks of yeast and sediment bouncing around the glass. Aroma: huge, complex set of aromas. Caramel, redcurrant, oak, vinous, hops, malt, banana and apple. Taste: slightly dry with a decent alcohol warmth. Toffee, hops, creamy malt, banana, apple, red grapes. Superb

God øl som man kan nyte smaken av. For meg en ubeskrivelig aroma, men 12 får nok en bedre omtale nå etter å ha smakt nr 8. Syrlig.

Rødbrun klar med lavt beige høyt skum som legger seg og blir der. Moden frukt, krydder litt sur lukt. Fyldig, litt salt, søtlige frukter og fin lett bitter avslutning. Medium kullsyre

Bottle. Dark amber, large beige head, strongly lacing. Both aroma and taste somehow very 'clean', in strange ways reminiscent of champagne. Surprisingly light body, sour fruity finish. A very interesting beer, for me in a way preferable to the famous 12. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz at Kulminator with Kimberly and Taylor. Pours brown wih a layer of white head. Aroma is caramel, some nuttiness, nice. Taste is nutty, caramel, bready, nice classic Trappist that is beautiful.

33cl. Thanks Gem! Pours an opaque dark brown with a lasting film of bubbles. Aromas of nearly-scalded dark toffee, earthy honey with the comb, and a touch of lemon hard candy. Tastes of earthy toffee, dark whole grain bread, figs, lemon honey, minty-wooden hops and a bit of unsweetened baker’s chocolate. The yeast (and maybe some spice adjuncts?) do a great job of guiding the big malts to a dry finish. Medium-heavy body has medium-high carbonation and a nice balance. Just a touch of the 8% is apparent.

Een heel lekker bier, maar tegenover de andere 2 Westvleterens voor mij persoonlijk de minste van de 3

Bottle thanks to Mike. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a strong raisin, wood, fruit. Medium mouthfeel with strong raisin, bready malt. Very impressive.
