Devil of a beer!
I've had a few of my Devil's Nightmare Duvel clone and it's rapidly getting better with age. At first tasting it was pretty hot and solventy from the higher alcohol level, but now after just a few more weeks in bottle it is drinking much differently. It's showing lots of clove and banana from the higher fermeting temps and it's getting that nice crisp and dry finish to it. Last week it seemed more like a Hennepin clone than a Duvel one, not like that's a bad thing though, lol. I have a feeling this one will improve with some age behind it. The brewmaster himself at Duvel Moortgat prefers his own product at the three year old mark, so who knows.
