dnstone (2576) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Sweet aroma; candy sugar, spices and dry fruit (cherry?). Deep amber-brown with nice off white head; a thin layer remains long after the pour, nice lacing. Moderately sweet and moderately roasty. The roasted flavors pursist as the tastes transitions from sweet to lightly earthy-hoppy. A nice bit of green apple approaching the finish. Overall very smooth palate. A pleasant beer, well described as a toned down version of the 12. Notes: Tasted 24 Jan 10, bottle purched at In de Vrede

Cool_Bond (2293) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2016
The aroma of yeast and raisins. Much alcohol, yeast, raisins and a little caramel taste. Not so good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Very much carbonic acid. The alcohol makes the beer becomes difficult to drink. Do not live up to their expectations, unfortunately, as the world’s best Belgian ale.

knasputte78 (542) - SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2016
Mörkt brun. En härlig doft och ett djup i smakerna. Lite söt, lite skumbanan, toffee. En öl jag skulle kunna dricka ofta, men det blir både krångligt och dyrt! Weltklasse! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown with an off white. Smell of dry fruit (raisins). Big thick Christmas cakes flavours with a smooth finish. A lovely beer. Rated by BrewTom

elosop (288) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2016
Dimmigt mahognybrun med ihållande fint beige-färgat skum. Doftar karamell och malt. Smaken tämligen besk och torr. Eftersmaken nästan bitter, men lång. Drucken på plats i Westvleteren.

AntonyWilson (114) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 24, 2016
330ml bottle: Pours dark brown with a fizzy tan head that clears. Aroma of stone fruit, toffee, slight caramel. Tastes of dark stone fruits with a slight caramel note as well. Very complex but well balanced. Finishes drier than I expected. Fairly bitter with a clean finish. Medium bodied, medium to low carbonation. Overall an absolute peach.
