33cl bottle into a Duvel tulip. Thanks, Dan, for tossing this one my way.

A: Opaque dark brown body glows reddish-amber around the edges; 1-finger head of creamy ecru foam. Decent retention, nice lace. Attractive brew.

S: Primarily malty, with toffee, molasses, and dark fruit. Some acetic tartness is present, but sadly understated. A bit underpowered and uninspired.

T: A bit more vinegar-laden than the aroma, with cranberry-tinged bitterness following the sweet malt. Decent sweet/sour balance, but not terribly tasty. It does get significantly better as it warms, though, and in the end is rather pleasant. Still not great, but ok.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation. Delicate, bordering on watery.

O: This one had some character, but didn't quite come together. I'd take it over Duchesse any day, but there are far better options in the style.

Cheers!

This was a strange one to rate. Started off awesome, big deep dark pour, chunky meaty head, smell was that nice vinegery (sp?) bitter nose, kinda getting pumped because it's smelling great....than the taste, light vinegar, big dry bitterness, very dry. But to be honest, it has that RR Supplication dryness, so if you like that, mixed with a Duchesse, your pumped, but for me, mouthfeel lost me, sorry.
