128th Review
Bottle to Westvletren 12 (small) chalice

From notes. This was beer #2 that was enjoyed as part of a blind Quad tasting - to warm our palates before the real tasting - in Utrecht (December 2011). Thanks Jeffo and doopiedoopiedoo for the hospitality!

A: Deep tint of brown. 0.5 (mocha) fingernail head on Jeffo's pour - I was being honest.

S: Currants, caramelized brown sugar, toffee, coffee, and plums. Hint of sour funk though which was weird.

T: Taste a bit better than it smells, but still seems a bit off.

M: Medium-full bodied with soft carbonation.

O: This was my least favorite of the five being poured, but I think the bottle may have been off. We had a lengthy discussion about this, but I don't really remember what the conclusion was. I'll come back to it again at some point in the future and probably re-review it just for kicks.

A: murky brown, semi translucent

S: sweet fruit, dates

T: dates, vanilla, lemon, oak

M: medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth

O: well balanced, extremely drinkable for over 10% ABV. What hasn't been said about this beer? The most complex beer I've ever drank, yet it it's still smooth as silk. Any further criticism would not only make me look a fool, but discredit everyone who was involved in producing this masterpiece. I wish I had more. So much more.

A - Dark muddy brown with reddish hues. The head is thick, tan, and has crazy awesome retention. Seems to last forever. Lacing is splotchy.

S - Smells wonder full. Picking up dark fruits, berries, raisins, prunes and sweet fig. It also has a milky quality to it. Like condensed milk with a hint of bananas. Alcohol is faint but its there.

T - Caramel sweetness with berries, raisins and alcohol. Hints of chocolate, Belgium spice and more alcohol. This stuff is delicious.

M - The mouth feel is creamy smooth with soft carbonation. Its silky and subtle. Perfect.

O - Amazing to say the least. I thought 8 dollars was a bit steep but now I realize I was wrong. This beer is delicious and is worth every penny I payed for it. If you like dark fruit and alcohol warmth with subtle complexities then I highly recommend this. Its a sipper.

A - pours a cloudy, murky mahogany. 2 Fingers worth of beige foam at first but disipates to less than a finger. From there it stays strong. Spotty lacing.

S - very big aroma. Tons of dark and dried fruit notes. Hints of spice.

T - mild sweetness on the front. Very similar to the nose ad far as fruit and spice character goes. Lots of raisins and figs. Some hints of chocolate in the middle. Alcohol is apparent but in notes of spice and a bit of warming in the back of the mouth.

M - full bodied. Generious carbonation. Very bubbley which helps keep this beer from being cloying.

O - a remarkable beer. Very big yet elegantly balanced.
