weird, the last 2 years ive had mouflan just arrived fresh hoppy and bitter, and then again 6-8 months, mellowed. these bottles just arrived whole foods devon last friday, but i would swear this was the mellow version, checked http://sites.google.com/site/freshbeeronly/
says bottle date in black above the label? well, i didnt see it so who knows? check that next time im in the store. either way its fantastic, but i wanted the hoppy bitter version.
pours beautiful dark amber, reddish brown color with complementary tan head. huge aromas of caramel, toffee, thick butterscotch cake batter, maybe not quite as good as my 3 favs lenny bruce ripa, insanity, and cw bourbon barrel barleywine, but damn close, lets make that a 5. taste follows the aroma, big caramel malt sweetness but not fruity, not cloying at all.
the only thing keeping the scores down slightly is the freshness issue. and if this is this years then what happened to the hoppy bitterness?
