Absolutely delicious. Nice malty backbone, tons of raisin/date going on. A little more carbonated than I was expecting but overall, incredible beer

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours dark hazy brown with a little bit of tan head. Aroma is both sweet an fruity and slight roast with some caramel and oak. lots of carbonation, the texture is perfect. Little bit of alcohol warmth up front. Lots of roast, little coffee and chocolate maybe and a little oak. It has a bit of caramel malt taste to it also and a slight Belgian yeast banana character. Lots of stuff going on here. And it opens up a bit more as it warms up and more sweetness starts to come out and balances the bitterness. Really good but maybe a tad over hyped.

Dark brown color with a low head. Really nice aroma: Fruity (red fruits) sweet (vanilla, caramel) and roasty notes (chocolate) . In mouth this beer has an amazing flavor. Really high intensity and complex retronasal aromas (hints of clove and dry fruits). Intense bitterness equilibrated by a nice sweetness. Full body and a warm sensation. Long long aftertaste. Maybe the closest beer to the perfection.

Getting my good ear chewed off about this beer. íCome out to the coast, weíll get together, have a few laughs..í, fucking heard that one before. Twist top and necked it on the road with some fucking Ray Charles ramming me in his Range Rover. Swerved left and hurled the bottle through his windscreen. Hit him harder than it hit me, bottle of fucking soda water.

Fresh bottle. Pours hazy brown with little to no head. Aroma is dark fruit - fig, plum - molasses, honey. Great nose. Taste is everything in the aroma plus nice bread note. Very smooth and lots of bubbles. Lighter on the palate than expected. Worth the hype. Quite tasty.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 OK This beer really is incomprehensible! Every human being should try this before they die. Absolutely insane yeasty nutty aroma. So simple and complex at the same time. Caramel and muted coconut. Some beers come close but donít quite get there. Mind blowing beer. Itís like it never leaves you olfactory memory.

Drunk side to side with a Rochefort 10.
Tastes of dark fruit, mostly raisins, caramel sweetness and quite some licorice. some port at the end. hints of coffee.
Extremely long aftertaste, starts sweet and gets more bitter at the end. Port , caramel and dark chocolate in the aftertaste. One of the longest aftertastes Iíve had with beer.
Compared to the Rochefort 10 the Westvleteren is a bit better in balance, has a longer aftertaste and bit licorice.
A brilliant beer, hard to get and expensive. Very interesting to taste and in my opinion a bit better then Rochefort 10.
If you can get it, try it at least once.

Dark, strong (12%) beer. Great taste, soft, balanced, nice aftertaste. By far the best Iíve ever tasted (from over 100 European beers). Something special!

Two bottles shared at the Quadfest. Aroma is peculiar with some dark fruits (figs and raisins mostly), rye, and almost a vodka grain smell. Pours dull dark brown with a brown head (mostly from particulates). Taste is brown sugar, baking soda, rye bread, and dark fruits. Very complex with a boozy (but not sticky) mouthfeel at the end. Very nice beer.
