UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 Bottle stored for 5 years. Near black and opaque, with a moderate tan head. Aroma of dark fruits. Very smooth to drink with more raisin flavours and a warming alcohol finish. Excellent.

Pours black, clear, with a moderate head. Some sediment in it. Aroma of musky cheese. Thin mouth feel. Strong alcoholic flavor. Plum, raisin, vanilla flavors pervade. Generally deep, warm, and fruity. Very different beer. Definitely

Incredible beer... full of flavour... some yeast settlement in the bottom... you’ll want this one again and again!

Dark bear with a small light brown head. Medium carbonation. Aroma is dominated by raisins, some prums and other dark fruits. The same you find back in the flavor. Some alcohol warming at the end.

#200. Rated 7/21/07. Been waiting for this one for a long time. Pours a dark, cloudy cola color. Nice off-white head. Thick lacing coats the glass. Some sediment. Aroma emerges from behind its frothy veil as the beer warms and the head settles. I picked up a veriety of dark fruits, root beer, and cream. The flavor is very similar to the 8. Mostly creamy cola flavors, with intermitent dark fruits and fantastic malts. I can’t emphasize the creaminess of this beer enough. You can spend an hour with this masterfully crafted beer and pick up slightly different aromas and flavors with every smell and taste. Beautiful in every aspect from start to finish. Best beer I’ve had to date.

Very good beer. Pours dark brown with tan lacy head. Beautiful boquet smell. Flavor is sweet but not too sweet and lot less alcohol taste than i would expect from an 11.3% beer. Very good overall, not quite the explosion of flavors found in the Westy 12 but my #2 ranked Trappist. And I can now say I have had all of the Belgian Trappist beers.

11.2 oz bottle. I/ve been waiting to try this one for quite awhile. Pours surprisingly dark with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruit and yeast. Flavor was very boozy and caught me off guard. Still very nice.

Bottle. Pours brown with a average size off-white head that is mostly diminishing but leaving good lacing. The aroma is of cereal and the belgian yeast. The flavor is of belgian yeast, along with some banana, raisin and hints of vanilla. The body is medium to full with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 Bottle. Great looking dark brown brew. Raisin and fruit flavor, quite sweet. Very well balanced with a kick of alcohol at the end.
