ThisWangsChung (747) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Reviewed 1/3/2013. Thanks to Jay for the bottle! 11.2 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a cloudy burgundy color with evident carbonation rising up to the top. Seeing as I intentionally poured the bottle to maximize the head, it was a five finger light mocha color. The retention is weird - instead of just gradually fading, the texture just becomes more bubbly, until it collapses in on itself. The end result is a much creamier looking one finger mocha-colored head that leaves massive clumps of lacing on the glass. If any beer was made for a Duvel tulip, this one is it. S: Apple, pear, chocolate, caramel, and brown sugar. Rather simple by BSDA standards, with a weird metallic note detracting some. T: There’s an initial quality of apple/pear yeast esters, before the beer finishes with notes of chocolate, raisin, and brown sugar sweetness. Occasionally, a bit of hops appear. This is definitely on the dubbel side of the BSDA fence. There’s very little thought provoking complexity, rather it fits into the category of simple refreshment. M: The vibrant carbonation gives this a light, airy texture. Actually, the vibrant carbonation makes this one really scratchy and even harsh. It’s pretty difficult to focus on the initial smoothness of the malt structure when the palate is being bombarded with carbonation and - to a lesser extent - astringency. Aftertaste is a touch sweet after a while, but this manages to subdue the booze quite well. O: Certainly, it won’t give Rochefort 8 any fits, but it’s not a bad choice for a BSDA. Keeping in mind its flaws (rampant overcarbonation, simple flavors, metallic aroma), it’s still decent.

Mainuh_man (243) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a huge, rocky off-white head. Aromas of mineral, particularly iron, bready malt, hints of cooked vegetable. Mild cereal malt sweetness at beginning, with hints of the iron that is on the nose. Transitions to an almost salty flavor, with some soy sauce and dark spice. Long, herby hop finish with alcohol warmth and sugar sticking to the back of the throat. Medium to full-bodied with sticky mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, not my favorite beer. Haven’t experienced the aroma of this beer very often, and it’s fairly heavy both on the sugars and the bittering hops.
