Trappist Westvleteren Gift Pack (1980ml Gift Pack)
Westvleteren has the smallest output of the Trappist breweries, with only a small part of their production available outside of Belgium.
Dark brown colour with huge creamy off-white mostly lasting head. Powerful malty and spicy aroma. Sweet fruity and spicy flavor. Nice lasting finish. Best beer ever.
Abt, or quadrupel, is the name given to ultra-strong Trappist and abbey ales. The name Abt was pioneered to describe Westvleteren and the beer that would become St. Bernardus. Quadrupel was pioneered by La Trappe. Abts are the darker of the two, with more rich, deep fruity notes. Quads are paler, with corresponding peachy notes. Neither have much in the way of hop, and both are very strong and malty. Though both are bottle-conditioned, abts trend more towards yeastiness. Alcohol is very high (10+% abv) for both.
