Brewery: Westmalle Trappist Brewery (or Brouwerij der Trappisten van Westmalle)
Style: Belgian Dubbel
Rating: 4/ 5
I’ve rarely met a dubbel I haven’t loved. But there’s something special about your dubbel being brewed by monks using ancient methods and traditions.
It’s heavenly with a rich chocolatey-amber colour, understated bitterness and great malt. There’s a slight fruitiness to it – maybe raisin. It’s a complex beer, one that you don’t just gulp down for the sake of it. You savour these sorts.
