Westvleteren 8, Sint-Sixtus

Dark brown with a medium sized off-white pale brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves plenty of lacings. The smell is of light fruity aromas and plenty of malts - very thick and robust. Notes of fudge and toffee mixed with earthy herbal aromas. Some spicy phenols and alcohol. Rather complex and well balanced, but it is not as impressive or as powerful as I had expected. In the taste, there is a similar balance between fruity aromas and malts as in the smell: cherries, slightly tart red currants rests upon a decent malty backbone. Fudge and caramel delivers much of the sweetness. Dark bread, a gentle note of wood and just a hint of blanket. The finish is slightly phenolic and somewhat bitter with notes of sweet alcohol, herbs and minerals. Full bodied, smooth texture, a very pleasant mouthfeel. Complex, well balanced and tasty beer.

Westvleteren Trappist beer is not a commercial item at Beer Planet.
