If ever there was a colure before Let There Be Light this is it, Westmalle Trappist Ale pours that dark. Head of light tan very fine foam goes to over two fingers before settling down to a fine cap of foam with moderate lacing. The carbonation does not rise to the top and replenish the head, it cant, the liquid is too viscous and traps the gas within, only to be released when the ale washes over the tongue. Pretty neat trick, I would say.
Raisin and prune with just a touch of fig and allspice to the nose. Raisin and prune with just a touch of fig, and allspice to the palate as well as bittersweet dark chocolate. The 7.00% ABV is completely veiled within this delicious brew.
If I take up consuming Westmalle Trappist Ale on a regular basis, Im going to have to get a second job
