It poured a dark liquid with some tones of red and brown and a small foam that left a little lacing. There was also some yeast in the liquid.
The aroma was strong with chocolate, red berries, coffey and spices. Complex and very nice.
The first sip was very fizzy. So fizzy in fact that I didn’t sense any flavor at all. After waiting a bit and let the fizzyness reside a bit I started to get a better grasp of the beer and it improved allot. It had a spicey flavor with some chocolate, red berries, nuts, orange peels and dried fruit. It also had a bite to it that I actually enjoyed, normally that would have been a bad thing but in this beer it really worked.
Bottle. Resembles a dubbel in a lot of ways, enough so that that's what I thought it was. Medium brtown pour with tan head. Foamy, and well over carbonated. Swirling helped, but it took a LOT of agitating to make the feel not gassy and prickly. Also let open to near room temp. Aroma and flavors are on POINT, though. Bubble gum, bready spices, very light roast and a pleasant nutty caramel maltiness. Very nice. Lower carb and it'd be a favorite. Brentv (698) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2018
Poured from the bottle at Cafe Gollem in Amsterdam. Dark mahogany with a two-finger beige frothy head. Aroma and taste of figs and plums, raisins, dark fruits, and toast. Much like the famous Westvleteren XII, but a little less intense, definitely less sweet, and more strongly bitter. This beer, however, is good enough to stand on its own, and the only way it is inferior is in comparison to the XII. That said, it was preferred to the XII by one of the friends I shared the evening with. A lovely beer, one to revisit. A real pleasure. czlowiekmotyka (649) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 12, 2018
It is a solid malty beer with tons of toffee like base which was spread all over a bread (imo). Quite tasty though. Valomir (80) - - MAR 10, 2018
Mars18: mørk rødbrun med tykt beige skum. Lukter tørket frukt og lett av søt malt. Fruktig anslag med bred malttyngde og preg av tørker frukt. Diskret og klassisk. Kanskje litt vel karbonert.

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. oblaten (60) - SPAIN - FEB 7, 2018
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. ansalon (4323) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2018
Pours a very dark brown with a low off white head. Aromas of caramel, raisins, figs, dates, roasted malt, muscovado sugar. Taste is loads of caramel, raisins, figs, dates. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. astronzz (114) - 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.
