January 27th

Note to all drinkers of the Westmalle Dubbel: don’t drink it straight out of the fridge. No matter how desperate/impatient you are, let that baby warm up or else you get a metallic and tart beer that is an improper tasting of a fine Trappist ale. After letting it warm to cellar temperature, you’ll find a beer full of dark fruits, candied sugar and some herbal notes. What amazes me about the Westmalle is how is manages such complex flavours while not overwhelming the palate. A fine example of the work done by Belgian monks.
