I think this brew, being in a clear bottle and all, has a bit of trouble make a quality appearance in the states, very skunked. Aroma is very hard to tell, smells like some toffee and maybe a touch of hops, just hard to say with all the skunked qualities. Taste was a bit better, starts with a quick maltiness, caramel, then finishes with a fairly fruity bitterness. Pours a mahogany red with a small off-white head.

Dark amber in color, almost brown. Has small chocolate aroma. A malty taste. I can´t say if this is a beer that I will drink again or not. Can´t deside if I realy like it or not...

Slightly hazy, dark amber-brown. Thin, fizzy off-white foam. Slightly skunked (clear glass bottle), malty aroma w/ some earthy hops. Medium feel. Relatively bland malty flavour of licorice, brown sugar & caramel w/ a mild, earthy hoppiness.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
duvel tulip glass / weird yet inviting aroma; sweat, grass, cheese, and sugar like in a sour lambic. the palate is smooth, but near being what is cloy, but this is watery. this brew is sweet, sugary, but plain. yes, as MullMan notes, there is "faint bubblegum." but this is nothing extra, this is nothing special, nor bitter. what’s up, hobgoblin? this is good, but where you at?

A lovely orange brown beer, with a light brown head. Bready and faintly hoppy nose. It’s warming, without leaving any residual stickiness on the mouth. Caramel flavors, and strongly malty.
