It's on my list of "Try before Die" beers.
I actually tried them side by side, mine was 13 months in the bottle at the time. I think it may have sat for too long though, as it had a coppery after taste. It was pretty close though. The real one had more of a sweet raisin/prune taste to it.

Buy Belgian beers, chocolates, waffles, cheeses, speculoos... online/The Belgian Shop from Belgium

This is where I bought the real ones. It cost about 150 bones for a six pack though. Not cheap! Could have gotten them cheaper on eBay but I really didnt trust any of the sellers there.

Anyone brewed this up lately? I'm going to do this as my 1 year anniversary brew and if it turns out well it will be a spin on it every year
Anyone tried the new amber candi syrup by the same guys as the dark candi syrup? I ordered both so we'll see.

There's another thread out there right now, where we are planning on doing a group brew and swap. Plus we're tweaking the recipe a little.

This sounds like a good beer. How did you create this recipe? Michael Jackson says that Westvleteren 12 is made from only 2-row pale, belgian candi, and northern brewer hops. Your recipe seems overly complex.

brad451, check out this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/west...w-swap-121429/

We had a competition where we all did some slight variations on two base recipes and there was a judging against the real thing. My brewing of the New World recipe (basically this recipe) won the competition for closest to the real thing and the best score overall.

The two base recipes seem a little over-done, imao.
