14-10-18 // 330ml bottle shared at a tasting with the Rhein-Main crew. Unclear brownish. Beige head. Great Dubbel nose. Very Belgian taste. Round and balanced malt sweetness. Raisin. Great.

Bottle, gift from AB. Pours a brownish black with a tan head. Aroma: raisins, roasted grain, molasses, mild toffee notes. Taste: raisins, roasted malt, toffee, molasses, brown sugar flavours. This beer was pretty unbalanced and a bit acidic. I strongly suspect that either the bottle was infected or had had been incorrectly handled or stored. It bore a semblance to the expected flavour palate, but clearly was not at its best. Will try another bottle soon to re-rate.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2018 Bottle brewed 3 months before drinking. Chilled it prior. Pours hazy dark brown. Off white head. Initial smell of strong malt and caramel. Sweet taste of dried fruit and chocolate. Pretty smooth considering alcohol content. Aftertaste is bitter and lingers. Really enjoyed this beer.

A brown, cloudy Belgian Strong Ale with light brown head. Aroma is prune, caramel, light tea, light fruit. Taste is bitter sweet. Pearly.

Deep brown pour, small off-white head, rapidly receding. Served out of a stupid Westvleteren chalice, which I'm pretty sure dissipates the aroma and flavor. Dumb. Aroma of nuts, roast, and toffee; flavor of raisins, caramel, and and toffee. Rich, full, chewy.

De beste Westvleteren en misschien wel het beste bier ter wereld. Donker, chocola, suiker, stevige dronk. Nasmaak die minutenlang in de mond blijft. Dit bier is een feest. En dat mag ook wel voor € 8,99 per fles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lasage (168) - DENMARK - JUL 17, 2018
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2018 Flaske. Flot mørk brun, 5 mm blivende skum, men en del bundfald som er lang tid om at lægge sig grundet relativt høj kulsyre niveau trækker lidt ned på udseende. Aroma er mørk malt, belgisk gær, samt frugt noter af æble og blomme. Smagen er fyldig men relativ mild, malt sødme, let bitterhed i eftersmagen, god balance, belgisk. Mindre fylde en XII, men også en fantastisk øl.
