Drank from my Duvel tulip

A - Pours a mahogany colour with off white foamy head that retains and laces well.

S - Sweet caramel, toffee , a hint of spice but slightly metallic on the nose

T - Similiar to the nose. Slightly sweet with some light faint floral hops with a rather dry bland boozy finish.

M - Medium bodied and medium carbonation

O - Definitely not as I expected, with the triple hopped now where to be seen. Drinkable but average overall.

Dark copper body with lively, small bubbles of carbonation and a thick, rocky, lasting head. Light, very malty aroma, primarily caramel. Lightly toasted grains with a more dominating hop bitterness with the flavor. Medium-heavy body; dry finish.

A pretty respectable red ale with excellent looks and a good if unremarkable taste. You may detect some rye crispness and pungency in the flavor, but otherwise it's the hop bitterness that is the strong point with this beverage.

good beer but lacking something - strong but not a big amount of flavours or complexity present

aroma: malt and chocolate predominate with some slight citrus - aroma not that strong though

taste: strong hop presence with citrus, pine and resin and a big amount of alcohol on palate coming through (not entirely surprising considering the alcohol content). As it warms/opens up it improves to include a lot more malt/chocolate to balance the hops

solid beer but better beers out there

Pours red (!) with a thin head that quickly dissipates. Lemon, grapefruit, minty earthy aromas from hops, a little bit of sweetness too. Surprised there isn't more going on in the smell department being triple-hopped and all. Thin body, dry finish, more about the hops than the malt. Earthy, spicy, tangy and acidic with a bitter hop finish. Drinks easier than most beers given its ABV.

Poured from bottle at 40 degrees

Poured with ½ inch foamy tan head, settled quickly and left thick lacing on glass with satisfying foam ring clinging to edge of glass. Color is copper red and dense. Light effervescence.

Aroma is balanced; Rye malt with light grassy hops that intensifies as beer warms. Also, as it warms a bit of booziness appears.

Mouthfeel is dry and has a soda water quality.

Taste is bitter and woodsy with peppery finish that sticks in back of throat. Could use more malt balance.

Overall: Lack of balance and hop bitterness that is not matched by aroma makes it a beer that might satisfy hop-heads but is heavy handed otherwise.
