Westy 12 is a wonderful beer, but it is so hard to get unless you go there or you pay out the wazoo for it. St. Bernardus Abt 12 is (IMHO) pretty much just as good and available in most decent bottle shops, and best of all, is really cheap in comparison. I don't consider it a "consolation prize" at all. To me, it's a gem hidden in plain sight.
If you can come close to cloning either of those 2 beers, you have done a superb job and you will have a great beer on your hands.
