4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
330ml bottle poured in its own chalice.
Iíve kept this beers stored for almost three years before open it. Best before 7th of June, 2011. Consumed at 15th of March, 2012 in perfect condition. Completely alive beer :)
A: Pours a nutty brown color and a big light beige head. Fizzy and "alive" carbonation. Good retention, it never disappeared leaving a thin small bubbled head. No lacings and a lot of dark particles floating around
S: Very bready. Very yeasty. Fruity, but moderate on these regards. Caramel malts. Hints of roasted malts. Toffee. Hints of alcohol
T: Follows the nose: Brown breauud, caramel malts, toffee, dark fruits, Belgian yeasts. A bit sweet upfront and a very moderate bitterness. Alcohol sensation
M: Medium creamy and bit molasses body. Moderate carbonation
O: Honestly: Fantastic beer! Despite of the hype around Westys, thereís no way to deny that, this is a just another perfect beer made by the Sint Sixtus monks

Wow, this is a great beer. I actually prefer this to the 12. Amazing balance of incredible flavours, itís really hard to pin down, almost tastes like there is malt wheat in here. Definitely worth trying if you can get hold of it.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from recent trade. Hand labeled 9/22/07. So 7 years old I guess. Murky brown pour with a small head with big bubbles that fade to a messy ring. Great aromas of berries, figs, dark bread, almonds, chocolate, and banana. Tastes sweet but not really rich. More dry and boozy. Big fig and dark bread taste with some chocolate, nuts, licorice, raisins, berries, and wood. Medium body. Complex Belgian beer but Iíve had others Iíve enjoyed more and are much easier to get. I might like to try a fresher one some day though.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy ruby chestnut, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Port, berry compote, plum notes and sweet spices make for an appealing aroma. Mild sweet fruit hops up front soon give way to spiced fruits and dark plum notes in the mid-palate. Berry notes lead into smooth port in the finish, and there is a lingering sweetly spicy aftertaste. This really is a very good beer, richly flavoursome and highly enjoyable.
