UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 Bottle bought on EBay! Much anticipation. Mildly disappointed. It is a nice beer, but not really for me as a big fan of the hop. This pours very dark brown from its iconic bottle crowned with a dense brownish head. The aroma is boozy and reminiscent of sherry. This continues in the taste, very malty, slightly sweet and plummy with a hint of cloves. It’s like a sherry-laced porter. Easy to drink for all its 10.2%.

(vintage 2010) Good notes of dark fruits, honey, spices, brown with reddish reflection and a good white head, medium/full body, average carbonation, taste is simlar, quite intense...really good.

Bets Trappist I've had, and close to the best beer. Large white head and dark brown colour. Aroma is yesty and slightly fruity, but quite subtle. Flavour is yesty, sweet, and mild alcohol aftertaste. Somewhat plum taste.

What is the difference between the XII labeled bottle and the unlabeled version?
