Ba Review #233

Glassware: Duvel Glass
Labeled ABV: 7.5%
Date/ Code: L1286GG003 23:42
This was a 12oz. bottle from a 4-pack I got at Evergreen Liquors in Frederick for $8.99.
Look: Poured a monster 3-fingers of a thick tan head with some serious lacing. The brew was pitch black (no surprise there).
Smell: Aroma was of robust winter fruits and a sweet lactose quality. Some slight hits of roasted barley or peat smoke.
Taste: First was a black coffee bitterness, probably from the hops. Then a hint of roasted dark chocolate in the middle. The finish was more bitterness with the roasted notes retuning along with some sweetness. The 7.5% ABV was completely hidden.
This was a really nice variation on the Guinness brand. The hoppy bitterness was a nice addition the usual Guinness palate that I'm used to.
Serving type: bottle
