Brouwerij Het Anker Cuvée Van De Keizer Blauw, 11% ABV. Pours dark brown, with a 2+ finger beige foamy head that left lots of lacing. Nose is sweet dark fruit and slight alcohol, taste follows with almost no bitterness. Outstanding thick mouthfeel, overall phenomenal. This has to be one of the best beers I've ever had.

The greatest of them all (the strong dark Belgian ales). Whenever I have a party or dinner party, I serve the blue. Everyone who tastes it says it is the best beer/ale they have ever drunk. I have made pilgrimages to Belgium for quads and strong dark Belgian ales. This is indeed the greatest of them all.
