Bottle at home bought at In de Vrede a couple of years ago. Dark brown with small beige head. Lots of aromas and flavours going on, caramel, chocolate apple and dried fruit aromas. Also bread/yeast. Taste is bready and fruity with a bit of booze. Very smooth and very nice.
Good head. Malty aroma with plums and orange. Full bodied. Very complex taste with plums, caramel, licorice, coffee, apple and pear. Alcohol present, but well hidden. A bit syrupy. Is this a great beer? Absolutely! Is it a classic? Yes! Buy it whenever you can. But is it worth a top 5 spot? I’m not sure... Westvleteren 8 2005, tasted 06.03.07. Malty aroma, not too abundant. Caramelpudding. Malty, caramelly flavor with hints of cinnamon and clove. Fluid bread, extremely well balanced. (8 4 9 4 16 = 4.1). Westvleteren 8 1993 or 1995, tasted 06.03.07. Malt, porto and a hint of coreander in the aroma. Malty flavor with milk chocolate and caramel. Has become thinner, but still a firm and well balanced beer. (8 4 9 3 16 = 4.0)
