janubio (1003) - SPAIN - FEB 21, 2018
Served in the Westvleteren glass. Dark brown colour, with amber tones when held against the light. Medium off white head that fades soon, leaving a ring around the glass. Small crying lace. Aroma is exceptional, raisins, dates, chocolate, candy sugar, toffee, some diacetyl notes, anise, wood, brandy, even some coffee. Medium body, creamy and oily texture, good carbonation. Sweet caramel finish. Taste is exceptional too, just following the aroma: Chocolate, anise, dates, raisins, brown sugar, licorice, notes of coffee, brandy... Just one of the best.

Aroma muy agradable. Mucha espuma densa que persiste (mejor usar un cáliz y verterla suavemente). Gusto dulce sin exagerar. fruta, malta, muy natural. Retrogusto muy agradable. se bebe muy bien. no se nota nada el alcohol. Muy buena.

astronzz (102) - POLAND - FEB 1, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2018 Bardzo obfita drobno pecherzykowa pianka. Barwa wedzonej sliwki. W aromacie ogromna ilosc drozdzy, pozniej slodowo i na koncu troszke chmielu. Poza tym troszke fig i daktyli. W smaku chmielowosc przelamana slodem i troszke drozdzy. Bardzo dobrze dobrane proporcje smaku i aromatu, bardzo gladkie. Ogromnie tradycyjne piwo. Wysycenie bardzo duze, alkohol przyjemnie ulozony. Polwytrawne, kremowy i leciutko daktylowy finisz. Klasa sama w sobie.

Mariox (449) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 1, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2018 W aromacie suszone owoce, drożdżowość, melasa, karmel. W smaku półsłodkie toffi, lekka przyprawowa goryczka, delikatnie kwaśne ciemne owoce. W posmaku melasa, suszone owoce, delikatnie cierpkie ciemne owoce. Wysycenie bardzo wysokie, alkohol dobrze ukryty, treściwe, bardzo bardzo pijalne co jest na plus.

ljthiessen (1540) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 30, 2018
Tried this at the campout before Surly's Darkness Day 2017. Didn't have enough to give it a proper evaluation, but seemed like a really solid dubbel and what I would expect from Westvleteren.

3.9
YantarCoast (1670) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 26, 2018
330ml bottle from RusBeerShop in Moscow. Pours hazy dark brown with a medium-sized beige head. Aroma is dried fruit, caramel, malt, some spice. Taste is medium sweet, brown sugar, yeast, toffee, dark fruits, prunes, followed by light bitterness.

3.6
Turboninja (956) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2018
[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Strong balanced nuances of bit overaged fruits with mango, some toffee. Sweeter malts can be detected. Wide taste spectrum and medium/long aftertaste with slightly bitter malts and hint of fruits. Medium body with medium/low carbonation. Overall, sturdy and high quality, but not so distinctive. 7 3 7 4 15

malibrat (226) - Pula, CROATIA - JAN 14, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Ovo ću samo kratko. Dakle kad konačno dođete do njega i probate Westvleteren 12 i on ispuni vaša očekivanja , onda naravno da i od osmice očekujete isto tako kompleksno pivo samo sa manje 'konjskih snaga' , ali tu je za mene bilo malo razočaranje . Okusi i mirisi su slični ali tijelo je kod osmice dosta 'tanje' i nema punoču koju sam očekivao. Kod odnosa između Rocheforta 10 i 8 je to savršeno izvedeno i doslovno je Rochefort 8 sa ponosom 'mlađi brat' od desetke , i drži istu kvalitetu kao i 'jači brat'.. Daleko od toga da je to slabo pivo ! I te kako spada u vrh Belgian Strongova , samo sam očekivao više.
