But to be honest - World´s Best Dark Beer ? - Come on...
How about Rochefort, St. Bernardus 12 and Westvleteren. Not to mention all these amazing brews from the U.S., Scandinavia, Netherlands... - No, you´re kiddin´ me. The world is full of best beers - and we live in the best of all possible beer worlds in all the world´s history. As far as I know. My opinion.

Bier in Berlin: Change is Brewing

BBC - Travel - Change is brewing in Berlin :  Germany may have a worldwide reputation for excellent beers, but that is no thanks to the capital city, Berlin.

Bier Berlin: Duvel Tripel Hop

That´s what we´ve been waiting for:
Seasonal Duvel Tripel Hop - Belgian Strong, made with different hops every year.
This year´s limited edition is dry-hopped with Citra hops. Reminds me of a Loire Sauvignon. Delicious.
