19/20 yeah it actually lives up to the hype: absolutely huge taste with loads of complexity. All the dried fruits like in a Rochefort 10 but it's smoother, has more depth and moreish. Hides its 10% abv. Quite superb. Pours like a coke with huge carbonation which settles quite quickly. Lots of bubbles to taste. I want more ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark amber with reddish flashes, little bit hazy, nice, big, frothy, creamy head and perfect lacing. Quite strong, solid and very complex aromas of caramel, honey, raisins with some malty and dried fruits notes. Sweet, full body, very smooth and little bit oily mouthfeel, right carbonated with light spicy, soft alcohol warming in the finish. Well balanced and surprisingly fresh and drinkable.

Purchased a six pack online back in 2007. Pours a murky brown/ruby red. Complex earthy aroma with strong scents of dried figs, dates and prunes. An even more complex taste of toffee, freshly baked bread, vanilla and various dark fruits. There are few beers that can transport the drinker into another realm of pure bliss quite like this.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2017 I managed to drink this one twice. As i see most people rated this beer high, its not my fav from Trappist. Pours dark brown, thick head. Fruity aroma, caramel, raisins and vanilla.

Zamglone, ciemny bursztyn. Piana obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, beżowa. Opada do cienkiej warstewki, nie zostawia lacingu. Intensywny, złożony aromat - kwaskowy, karmelowy, kandyzowane owoce, figi, winny, miodowy, przyprawowy, alkohol. Inny niż wszystkie znane mi quadruple. W smaku przede wszystkim kandyzowane owoce, brązowy cukier, alkohol, ale całkiem szlachetny. Wytrawne na finiszu. Wysokie wysycenie. Dobrze pijalne. Czuje się, że to po prostu dobrze zrobione, tradycyjne piwo.

pawos (85) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 24, 2017
Zawiodłem się na piwie, chyba za duży hype był. Kolor ciemnobursztynowy, lekko mętne, piana ładna. W aromacie wychodzi nieprzyjemny alkohol. Za nim trochę suszonych owocw, karmelu i chleba. W smaku pełne, słodkawe. jest Karmel, rodzynki i słodkie owoce. Bardzo wysokie, przeszkadzające wysycenie. Goryczka niska. Przeszkadza też alkohol.

Czas kocha to piwo. Cztery podejścia by wyrobić sobie swoje zdanie. Najlepsze? Przynajmniej czteroletnie! Aromat XII jest bujnie złożony. Głwnie kandyzowane, ciemne owoce, bakalie. Akcenty winne, słodycz wanilii, brązowego cukru. Smak oddaje nam jeszcze więcej tego, co oferuje w aromacie a dodatkowo oferuje toffi, czekoladę, sherry, porto. Feria smakw oblepia język, pomimo ciut za wysokiego wysycenia. Piwo legendarne, pełne mistyki, ktra jest w tym piwie obecna.

Sample from beer share, thanks Jordan! tastes of dried figs, burnt brown sugar. Really complex tastes and wish i would have had more. The bottle may have been a little over carbonated however i think this is usually the case with Westys.
