Thanks to Steve for the bottle. Pours a deep brown with a thick creamy off white head. The aroma is all carmelized sugar and Belgian yeast. Medium body with big carbonation, dark fruit, carmelized sugar and Belgian yeast notes in the taste. Finished clean and tasty. Very good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from bottle. Tasted head to head with Westy 12. Pours a dark brown with off white head identical to Westy 12. Aroma is not near as strong but similar. Notes of dark fruits, caramel, maple syrup, toffee. Mouthfeel is a little thinner than Westy 12 but still chewy and sticky. Flavors of brown sugar, maple syrup, figs, plums, raisins, caramel, toffee. Overall excellent for being the little brother to 12.

At In de Vrede. A beautiful hue - burgundy? Frothy lasting beige head. Delicately sweet, tantalizing aroma: dates, figs, brown sugar, Caramel. Flavor follows and brings a moderate earthy bitterness that lasts through the semi dry finish. Not overcarbonated. Excellent.

33 cl bottle at de Vrede, Westvleteren. I bought six more bottles in order to age them, so this review might change over time. First of all, let me say this is a nice one, but 100? I felt disappointed, given the expectations were high, and loving the Westvleteren 12. Ok, here’s the review: pours dark brown with reddish shades. Tan head. Aroma is not particularly high, rather low: honey, violets, dates, prunes, tomato, soy sauce. Mouth is fizzy, medium-bodied, not sweet at all. A little thin. Finish isn’t bitter, but it does linger. Let’s see within a few years.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown colour. Modest white head. Plums, dark fruits, caranel, barley, hints of coffee in the aroma. Caramel, dark fruits, hints of barley st first. Plums, hints of berries in the middle. Hints of coffee. Toffee in the end. Quite well balanced, very well drinkable beer. However, it is nothing surprising. Very good, but still a beer from our galaxy.

Una cerveza excelenta que me pareció toda una joya. Notas en donde destacan las maltas obscuras y frutos secos, ligeramente se perciben los sabores característicos de las levaduras belgas y al retrogusto unas notas deliciosas a caramelo y azucar.
