Westvleteren has the smallest output of the Trappist breweries, with only a small part of their production going very far into the world.

Nov 23, 2006 Bottle from Beer Mania. Wow! Another fantastic spicy ale. Smells deliscious. Taste winds up, fruity, spicey, alcohol mouthfeel and then smoothens out, silk-like. Warms the stomach mintues after and leaves lacey feel on the lips. Just divine.

Cloudy brown to dark brown, small but lasting tan creamy head. Lots of floaters. Aroma is moderate sweet brown sugar, toffee, nuts, some dark fruits, spices and some yeast. Taste is moderate sweet brown sugar, caramel and toffee, quite nutty, some chocolate, dark fruits, spices, low to medium bitterness in the finish, some dryness in the finish as well. Medium to full bodied, nice and creamy, medium carbonation.

Me ha gustado mas incluso que la Wesvleteren 12 aun cuando la fama es de la 12. Entra mejor por ser mas suave

Manslow (325) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 16, 2015
Kolor złocisty, aromat mocnego piwa, lekko cytrynowe, lekka słodycz, typowy belg z górnej półki. Klarowne, nagazowane prawidłowo.Wytrawne procenty niewyczuwalne.Trochę zawiedziony.

Oh Belgium.... They do what they do. I feel lucky to try this but at the same time I’m a little sad because while this is the best version of this thing in the world I’m kind of still a little sad.

I’m not big into Belgium beers and this beer is alright. Its awesome cause its super rare but it tastes a little too belgiumy for me plus its got this weird apple taste and smell to it.

So.....was this the reason Germany invaded in 1940? Nahhhh. Can’t be. They are the home of Blatz, so there’s no reason to go looking elsewhere. it would be like being shacked up with Kate Upton, and going across the street to have carnal knowledge with Ruth Buzzi. Doesn’t make sense at all. Once you’ve had a Blatz, you’ve had it all. Or not. these monks gave up the funk and that is how they rolled. Or not.

0.33 l bottle from beer and chocolate shop in Brussels. Looks nice, smells nice and tastes more than nice. Everything is in balance and this is very easy to drink. I liked this more than Westvleteren 12.

SkillsFactory (80) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Color mogano con riflessi aranciati. Schiuma beige, persistenza avversata dall'alcol ma negli standard di una dubbel. Toni fruttati come uva e ciliegia; mano mano che si scalda fa capolino l'albicocca, presenza di note speziate ed oleose, sul finale l'amaro del luppolo e dei malti tostati equilibra la bevuta. Ben carbonata, alcol ben percepibile sia al naso che in bocca, ma la bevuta risulta comunque piacevole. Preferisco la XII, ma rimane una birra da manuale nel suo genere.

dark, with a sweet and roasted malt aroma. damn fine beer with a mix of oak, cherries, roasted malt and brown sugar.
