Draft. Not sure who listed this beer, or how I became the first to drink it, but here goes. Deep coppery pour with ruby edges, and a great creamy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, hops, vinous fruit, cherry, red grape, even some blueberry hints. The taste is caramel malty, fruity, vinous, with nice complexity and a nitrogenated mouthfeel. Very smooth and quaffable, I would have called this a red ale based upon its fruitiness, but lets compromise and call it a damned good brown ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The guy who scored this a 4.3! Seriously? A Duvel is a 4.3. Pours amber from tap without much aroma. Not a lot going on tastewise although you get some caramel maltiness on the finish. Not my favorite style granted but this one seems to be playing fairly safe.
