33cl not sure if it was on tap or from bottle at the Abbey of Westvleteren.
Aromas of dried fruits, prune, figs, dates, a bit dark chocolate and coffee.
Poured dark reddish brown with a beige creamy small head, which faded.
Taste had the dried fruits again, maybe some cherry as well, a bit of boozy warmth.

33 cL bottle. Pours a murky brown color, with a big, foamy, tan head that refuses to go away. The aroma is smooth juniper, butter toffee, allspice, dates, and molasses. Fairly sweet up front, drying out a bit toward the finish, with a smooth bitterness that lingers. Medium body, with a velvety, grainy feel and a bit of a bite. Almost a year old, and it still seems a little young. A bit sharp and assertive, but very pleasant, and a little more time would probably smooth it out some. Simple and easy at first, but layered and subtly complex. Nearly perfect flavor. Thoroughly enjoyable. Luneylane (203) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAY 20, 2017
A bottle from Beers of Belgium drunk at Dad’s place while home on leave. Aroma: plums, wine. Appearance: hazy dark brown, minimal head. Palate: full-bodied and creamy, average carbonation. Long, predominantly sweet finish. Taste: heavily sweet, but pleasantly so. Delicious boozy flavour, almonds in there somewhere. Complex and excellent. Florya (2024) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2017
How: bottle Appearance: light brown with a red shimmer, medium off-white head. Aroma: lots of dried fruits; dates,figs, prunes, raisins, some spice, herbs, nuts, caramel, dark syrup, grass, plums, blackberries, some yeast. Palate: full body, soft carbonation. Very nice. johnjohn722 (3) - California, USA - APR 23, 2017 does not count

UPDATED: APR 22, 2017 Botella 33 cl en el Kraken 21..04..2017. (r2083). Sin lote ni Fcpref legibles en chapa. Color marrón oscuro con poca espuma beige oscuro que desaparece casi por completo al poco. Sabores intensos maltosos ligeramente tostados algo secos al final con predominio de frutos pasos pan de higos, galletas y ligeras especias. Cuerpo medio a intenso con 8 vol y buena sensación alcohólica. Bastante buena aunque algo más seca y menos dulce que la 12. Así con todo para repetir.
