Westvleteren Abdij St. Sixtus
Belgian Strong Dark Ale, Dubbel
£13.00 Inc Vat.
“Westie” as it is often known, is probably the most sought after beer in the world, mainly due to reputation and rarity.
Westvleteren 8 just like its Westvleteren Abt 12 counterpart, has achieved real cult status. The beer has a tanned, amber red-brown colouring and is topped by a lovely, large, lacy head. It has a sweet fragrance, boasting a variety of fruity aromas. Westvleteren 8 feels full and sweet in the mouth, you can almost taste the malt, including the chaff of the barley. A surprising hint of bitterness is noticeable at the end and the aftertaste lingers.
This beer will develop over time if you have enough patience and willpower to leave it alone long enough. Store in a cool, dark place where the temperature is relatively stable and it will ripen beautifully.
