BelgianBeerGal (3374) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2007
25cL bottle. No it’s not the famous Westy from up the street but I thought this was a great beer, especially for the price. I would recommend trying this beer. Best place to buy is the drive-through beer barn in Woesten.

FatPhil (10724) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2015
330ml bottle (Koht Spring Auction, Tallinn)
Pleasant red, brief frothy head. Sour and sweet malty aroma, had a hint of flemish red briefly. Dirty rough and raw sweet mashy aroma some mammi, but also quite sour. Sticky and a bit slick palate. Fortunately the sourness fades after a few sips, so you can ignore it. Very uninspiring belgian strong dark ale, but it does cover the alcohol quite well, so an extra point for that.

chromeotaphor (101) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2015
Caramel donker suiker achtig aroma. Prachtig rood bruinig donker van kleur, erg helder troebel (ruwe stukken). Peperachtige bite bij binnenkomst en afdronk, lichte zuring. Mooi eenvoudig maar toch diepgaand palet.

33cl bottle. Slightly hazy dark amber colour with a thin off-white head. Nice retention. Caramel, dates, honey, malt, bread and liquorice in the aroma. Average to soft carbonation and medium body. Taste is quite complex but more on the sweet side. Overall, a very good beer.

leghorn99 (102) - Livorno, ITALY - MAR 27, 2015
Di colore mogano; schiuma abbondante, cremosa con un buon cappello persistente. Aroma di malto, caramello, miele; leggero citrico, pompelmo, ananas. In bocca, fa bella presenza il malto, il luppolo, il lievito e lo zucchero di canna; si percepisce anche una punta di whisky, di malto torbato e di frutta matura; retrogusto lungo e caldo.

Mahogany colour, red reflections. Abundant foam, fine and creamy, but not persistent. Smell of honey, coffee, chocolate, malt, bread, whisky, ripe fruit - very nice, actually. Sweet, round taste; bitterness at last, on the palate; candi sugar, dried fruit.
