After having a pint of Adnams Broadside and a pint of Everards Sunchaser in The Gun (a very nice pub) with work-related people, I finally managed to catch up with PC over a few drinks at home.
Starting off with a nice bottle of Chimay Bleue and finishing off with a big bottle of Meantime London Porter, the highlight was what we had in-between; the Westvleteren Abt (12).
The only reason I bought an extra bottle last year was so I could share it with PC. He really likes Belgian beers and he is also partly responsible for my near-obsession with beers. Having waited over a year to share the bottle with him and having stored the bottle in a cupboard; I was worried it might have gone off. The aroma and taste was as nice - or nicer - than I remember it from last August. PC really enjoyed it, and he now also rates it as one of the best beers he has ever tasted. At $16 for a 330 ml bottle it is quite expensive, but I think it is definitely worth splashing out on special occasions.
