4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml brown bottle, corked, stored in can. Reddish brown coloured beer with a light creamy whitish cap. Nose is sweet and malty, yeasty banana notes. Flavour has some chocolate malts, some malt chewiness, sweet raisin fruitiness, yeast/estery. Finishes with light hops and yeast, dry. Some leafy aftertastes. Full bodied, carbonation is strong but natural feeling. Alcohol is well integrated, this never feels like an 11% beer, very drinkable.

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a cloudy cola brown with a thick but quickly receding tan head. Aroma of dark fruits. Flavors of caramel, plums, dark cherries and butterscotch,. Smooth, slightly boozy finish.

750 ml bottle pour. The cork was a son of a bitch to get out. Still carbonated. Pours a hazy brown color. More hazy than a fresh bottle we had side by side. The aroma is more caramel and toffee and dark fruits. Smells like an awesome aged beer. It’s held up marvelously. The taste is sweet caramels and dark fruits. Thick, chewy mouthfeel with soft, velvety carbonation. This is just an awesome beer!

Alleen al om de mooie fles de moeite waard om te kopen. Afbeelding op de site klopt helaas niet. Maar daar gaat het uiteraard niet om. De smaak van dit bier overtreft alles. Dit is Westvleteren zoals het heel vroeger gebrouwen werd. Het is maar bij weinigen bekend maar toen Westvleteren besloot om binnen de eigen muren te gaan brouwen hebben ze de gistsoort licht veranderd.

Bottle. Brown pour with an off white head. Sweet malty aromas. Smooth and sweet with tasty caramel malts, brown sugar, and dark fruit notes. Just the slightest hint of oxidation. Good body and mouthfeel. Big tip of the cap to Bu11zeye for hooking me up with this one.....

Bottle share courtesy of Homer321. Dark brown pour with medium thick off-white head. Aroma of brown sugar and carmel. Lots of caramel flavor, very chewy and a little flat but very enjoyable.

bottle I bought at Knightly Spirits more than a few yeard ago. pous a light brown with garnett highlights. initially a moderate head, off white, but fades quickly. moderate lacing. nose is lightly dusty like munich malt. soft fruits. no alcohol in nose. initial taste is sweet but dries out very quickly. leaves a fruity taste, like a fruit roll up without all the sugar. a little alcohol warming after the finish, but all smooth. wow, for an old rotting beer, this sure tastes good.

I’ve been sitting on this one forever, today’s the day. Spicy yeasty notes on nose. Dark brown color and good lace, this is clearly a big boy beer. Cane sugar on the palate, with the small amount of booze too

2010 rating. Appears slightly hazy dark reddish brown. Smell is candy sugar, rich malt and dark fruit. Taste follows the nose. It is smooth and elegant.
