Mescan Brewery Westport Extra (9.3%)

Mescan, based in Ireland, brew their beer using traditional Belgian techniques and, most importantly, they do it very well indeed.
Westport Extra is a rich and creamy Belgian style Quad that pours a bright gold with a big billowing head and smells of candy canes and lightly spiced bread dough.
The body of the beer is a Demerara sugar syrup, waffle, shortcake and bruised apple core malt delight, and the hops jump out of this sweetness with a super fresh herbal leaf metallic hit, lemon zest and orange juice.
In the finish the yeast pops up with a warm and earthy spiciness that adds an extra depth to the satisfyingly boozy end of this lovely beer.
