Westvleteren has the smallest output of the Trappist breweries, with only a small part of their production available outside of Belgium.

I visited the place and maybe the beer is a little bit overvaluated. it is a very special beer but there are other beers in Belgium with similar or better qualities. Some towns are producing amaizing products. beermap.com

Flaska på black lion. Lätt skum. Bärnstensfärgad och lättdrucken. Lätt smak av väldigt mycket. Mums som faan.

Pours a nice brown with an off-white head. Smells of nice and sweet dark fruit. Taste is quite similar with nice breadiness. Honesty one of the best quads I've ever had ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great aged W12, Dark fruit and plum, dark cherry, some chocolate milk tasty, very smooth and long finish, end with dark sugar. Like Australia great Shiraz, Beer of Angel's Share!

Best before 04.06.17 (Brewed 2014). Poured a very cloudy brown and had a very typical Abt/Quad smell and taste. A lot smoother than Rochefort 10/St Bernadus 12 and overall a great beer. My father who dislikes other quads loved it.

Poured at the quinzaine de la bičr, at Louvain-La-Neuve. Malty and sweet beer, no alcohol taste. Great beer.

turbothy (1090) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 10, 2014
Pours dark brown with a shedload of sediment. One of the most unclear beers I’ve poured, and not in a good way. Small head. Alcoholic aroma, malt and port. Flavour is port, raisins, coffee, caramel and cinnamon. Smooth but the alcohol burns a bit. Excellent beer let down by the unclean look.

StueyD (1159) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
A dark cloudy brown coloured beer with a thick off white head. A surprisingly light aroma, but by no means lacking, yeasty bread dough and Marmite, ripened dark fruits, Port-like raisiny and vinous. Full mouthfeel. An assault the tastebuds, from all directions! Sour and yeasty. Dry, roasted malt, some espresso coffee. Sweet ripened fruits, raisins, plums and cherries and Port-like. Did I miss anything! The reputation this beer has is utterly justified. Tasted at "In de Vrede", Westvleteren.

leebotton (201) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Aroma deep bready with a spirit like clean alcohol aroma. Slightly dark fruity. Mahogany brown. Ours is a little hazy as opening fizzed up the sediment. Flat tasting unfortunately as much carbonation has been lost. Very boozy with toasted, sweet dark sugar. No aromatic notes as expected so probably this bottle didn’t travel very well

Bottled December 2012. Lived up to my expectations. Was very similar to how I remember St. Bernardus 12. Seems better, but maybe some of that is my excitement over trying this. In any case, just what a quadrupel should taste like, and a very special beer indeed.
