Notes / Commercial Description:
A beer cloaked in secrecy. An ale whose mysterious and unusual palate will swirl across your tongue and ask more questions than it answers. A sort of dry, crisp, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there's never been anything else quite like it.

3/4 pint bottle poured into a glass mug. Appearance is a good golden copper color with a 2-1/2 to 3 finger head and moderate carbonation that leaves some good lacing. Slightly darker and not as hoppy as true Pale Ale. The taste begins with an undefined fruitiness and leaves with a slight bitterness that are not offensive, just different. Hard to define, but lives up to its name as not quite a Pale Ale. This would be a good beer for someone who normally does not like a Pale Ale.

from bottle into DUVEL (@overlord :p) tulip

A- pours a rich golden orange with a 1 finger off white head that has good texture.

S- really could not get past the roasted malt in the smell.

T- apple, and a vegatable oil type of taste and feeling. maybe some caramel, toffee, and coffee.

M- the mouthfeel was probably the best thing i liked about this beer. thick enough and carbonated just right. wet after-feeling.

O- after hearing a lot about this beer i thought i would pick some up. i was dissapointed, but its probably just my own preference. the flavor just wasnt for me. i will say that this beer is fun to try to pick out all the ingredients/flavors. to its credit i believe it is very complex in flavor; i just couldnt pick out everything, myself.
