|W12 ja maailman parhaimman oluen lasi: R10|
Sometimes three years ago I tasted what was argued as the best beer in the world: Westvleteren 12. I thought back then that it wasn't as good as Rochefort 10. Even Westvleteren 8 was better. Beerheads argued that this new version (XII) needs few years to mature so when our monopoly over 4.7% ABV booze shop Alko bought a batch I had to have few. And one of those I put into my beerfridge and now I opened it. First impression was that there are now lots and lots of chocolate all over the beer. Still, lots of those scents you connect with trappist beers are still there: bananas, toffee, raisins, plums and so on. This is one heck of a beer but I still cannot understand why the hype? I still think Rochefort 10 is a better beer compared to W12 but don't get me wrong: W12 is still one of the best beers in the world and the next time Alko buys a batch I will buy few bottles for me. Points: 45/50.
