Nice dark brown color with a thick lasting head. This beer glazed the entire glass. Smooth rich taste of malt and fruits. Excellent finish one of the best beers Iíve had. Classic trappist I loved this beer.

What can be said about this beer that hasnít been said a thousand times before? Well, not much. This is a fantastic beer and if one can wrap their brain (and tongue) around the complexities of this beer then you are surely that much further on your way to a better place. The aroma was multitudes of dark fruit and chocolate and toffee and brown sugar. The appearance was beautiful to look at as it was incredibly dark (stout like?) with little light passing thru but what did was a deep purlple, almost eggplant like purple to it. The taste is almost liquer like, with a sweetness to match the dark fruity-spicyness that is velvety soft on the tongue. Another beer that Iím happy to be able to purchase at any time, pretty much anywhere around I live.

Dark color with a long lasting head. Aromas of dried fruit and berries. Rich and full taste, alcohol quite present. Sweet, but not overly so. No hops whatsoever

UPDATED: APR 5, 2006 Molten Godiva chocolate assuming the shapely form of a Trappist glass lounges languidly before me, beckoning ...and everyone who knows me knows I have no willpower to resist a seductress of this (or any) cleverness. I lean in hopefully, knowing full well that itís too early for a kiss... so instead I admire her effervescent spirit, bubbling over with promising enthusiasm. What is that heady perfume she wears? Something sweet, like ripening dates in the Morrocan night breezes. She sighs...and I read that as acquiesence. I seize the moment, bring her to my lips, and taste...What sweet fire! I taste dark fruits and chocolate from some far-flung conquered Spanish empire. I roll her around my tongue...and her potent liquor makes my blood warm...and rise...like a strange Nubian wine...and I have no power, nor reason, to resist...

Hey Joe... just what the hell is a "hefen"? I must have been drinking, yeah?

almankin (10) - Crowley, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2006
The apperance was very dark with a big head. There was a deffinate coffee smell. There were too many flavors for my liking. I agree with another reviewer that the alchol is very well hidden as far as taste goes. I found the palate somewhat bland. Other than that an ok beer.

MrBunn (2536) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2006
Aroma is wonderful. Dark fruit, maybe some banana/clove scents and with nutiness. Color is very dark, head is big at first, but diminishes quickly... Flavor is full and parallels aroma nicely. Banana, cloves, nuts, prune, and maybe some toffee. Excellent.

Pours thick and heavy dark color. Head is tan in color that stays. Aroma is that of roasted nutiness and coffee. Hides the alcohol very well. Surprisingly drinkable and very very good.

Bottle in good company with pailhead. Poured a creamy off white head with a decent amount of carbonation a clean brown in color Mild malt aroma with some chocolate and toffee .Flavor was mild with chocolate fruit fig and a light creamy finish. At this point it is hard to get excited I just consumed a Westy 12 .
