(Alc. 10.2% Vol.) The Westvleteren 12, with a distinctive yellow cap, has been awarded the title of "Best Beer in the World" several times. The beer, also called Flemish Bourgogne, has a dark amber colour and a stable, very lacy white head. Carrying a massive nose of raisin-sweet, nutty blends, the Westvleteren 8 has a very full, creamy aroma and a rich, caramel-like and malt-flavoured palate, thus making it the ideal nightcap. The aftertaste is bitter and lingers.
