Poured into a Duvel tulip from a bottle dated Vintage 2011.

A: Dark slightly hazy amber with a thin light tan head that maintains lacing and a coating on top.

S: Mostly rye with a malt sweetness that comes through and reminds me of a barley wine. Dark fruits and brown sugar on the nose as well, with slight medicinal aromas.

T: Slight rye, with a malt sweetness coming through, the beer finishes with a slight citrus bitterness and some alcohol coming through. Decent.

M: Full bodied with light carbonation.

O: Interesting, more like a barleywine than anything else I could compare it to. I wouldn't seek this out again, but it's worth the try.
