Bottle obtained in a recent on line order with Leuken's in which they sent a number of less than fresh beers. This was one of them - bottle dated MAY1511. So 6 months old.

Poured in to Duvel tulip glass.

A - Medium orange/amber colour, slightly cloud; one finger of foamy cream-coloured head.

S - Sweet caramel/toffee malts up front with a s light bitterness present. A somewhat one dimensional nose with only the malt bill coming through. Not surprising given the freshness info.

T - A decent hop bitterness is evident up front with some floral and piney notes. A big sweet caramel/toffee malt backbone balances out the palate and as the beer warms, begins to take over the flavour profile. The bitterness returns in the finish. This would probably be excellent fresh, but at this age was a shadow of its former self.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Semi hazed mahogany color with orange glow around the edges. Off white head. Caramel and hops with a faint dark fruitiness.

Dried dark fruit sweetness up front. Medium bodied that holds up well to the carbonation. Sticky caramelized glazed dark fruit bowl throughout. Faint citrus hop adds a touch of underlying bitterness but for the most part the sweetness overrides this and linger slightly. Very clean finish and smooth beer. Wish it showed a little less dark fruit. Along with the hop finish slightly dried toast flavor to help dry it out. A very clean and very drinkable beer though. Good but nothing to write home about. The alcohol is very deceptive as you cant taste it at all and it could easily pass as a 5% ABV brew.
