UXO (1001) - CANADA - OCT 21, 2015
Appearance: mostly clear deep brown with some particulate, one finger of loose light tan head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dried dark fruits, toffee, vanilla, nutty, light chocolate, mild yeast. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (9/10) Medium-light body, moderate-lively carbonation, drying mildly tart and and warming finish. (5/5) Surprisingly light and lively body, with rich and complex aroma and flavours. Unsurprisingly, there’s a strong family resemblance to the XII,except that this is a lighter, more drinkable version in almost every way. Definitely a class above. (18/20)

Para comemorar o nascimento da minha filha Sara, resolvi abrir um presente do meu sogro, uma Westvleteren 8. Belgian dubbel menos "hype" do que sua irmã 12 (BDSA), mas igualmente fantástica. Cor marrom escura, turva, com espuma de média e persistente formação. Aroma de ameixas secas, toffee, média intensidade. Na boca, corpo médio/baixo, com carbonatação marcante. Sabor de frutas secas, em especial ameixas secas e banana-passa. Amargor proeminente, equilibrando o conjunto. Sensação de mousse no palato, terminando num final longo, com álcool bem inserido. Melhor cerveja do mundo? Difícil dizer, mas certamente é a melhor das Westies que já tomei (a 12 fica bem colada nela). Espetáculo de cerveja! Que a Sara tenha muita saúde e nos traga muitas alegrias! Cheers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Toch al het zwaardere bier van de drie, een goede donkere kleur en een diepe smaak.

Grisza77 (240) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 28, 2015
Brunatne, mętne piwo o obfitej pianie , która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w postaci warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat wspaniały owocowy, winogrona, śliwki jakby z nutą drzewną, do tego subtelna nuta alkoholowa. W smaku bardzo gładkie, idealnie ułożone, owocowe i przyjemnie, rozgrzewająco alkoholowe. Goryczka średnia, ale bardzo przyjemna, krótka, lekko alkoholowa. Ogólnie tak ułożonego i zbalansowanego piwa jeszcze nie piłem, niby nie rzuca na kolana jakimś niespotykanie intensywny aromatem i smakiem, ale wszystko jest tak idealnie ułożone, że razem tworzy harmonijną całość, dla mnie mistrzostwo świata.
