4.25/5 rDev +15.5%
750ml bottled 07/09/07.
Consumed from Duvel tulip.
A - murky brown, head retention almost nonexistent, foam creeped out of bottle a couple minutes after opening
S - cherry, vinegar, tiny bit of funk, caramel, brown sugar, figs
T - sour, fruity, tart. Belgian base comes through. Dry finish. Some faint cough syrup. Balsamic vinegar.
M - good bit of alcohol burn on front of tongue but booze creeps up on you. Despite the foaming, not much carbonation. Coats mouth with that lingering tartness.
O - this was my white whale after drinking one fresh a few years ago and not realizing that some aging could do it some good. Love the sour and tart character this takes on. Beyond 6 years could accentuate the vinegar qualities. Belgian base readily apparent. 5 years out is probably prime time.

2011 bottle - it's been way too long since i last had this (2010).
a nice clean light amber pour with 2 fingers of head which diminished slowly and left behind a nice frothy lacing. smells of port wine barrels, raspberries, caramel. the flavor is VERY sweet, tons of raspberry, a huge alcohol warmth is a bit overwhelming but goes down smooth after the first few sips. lots of caramel, berry, wine barrel on the end of the palate. full body with low carbonation.. sticky on the lips, very booze heavy and warm.
this is an outstanding beer and i'm sad it hasn't been produced regularly in 2 years now. dfh needs to bring this one back for good, even if it's a small 12oz bottle like 120/wws.
