A unique tasting beer (12% ALC) brewed with respect for the authentic taste of Duvel, but with a surprising Caribbean twist and sweet, powerful rum notes of vanilla, dried fruit and oak. An absolute first.
The first Duvel Barrel Aged was born in 2017. A unique tasting beer aged on wooden whisky barrels, from renowned American bourbon distilleries. Three years and four successful editions of Duvel Barrel Aged later, the Duvel brewers wanted a slightly different approach. No bourbon barrels this time, but rum barrels. Duvel master brewer Hedwig Neven had wooden barrels from The West Indies Rum Distillery in Barbados placed in the Duvel cellars. After months of maturing, this autumn - from October 2020 - you can finish a cosy dinner with friends and family with a glass of Duvel Barrel Aged, The Rum Edition.
Duvel Barrel Aged, the Rum Edition, is a beer for connoisseurs, connoisseurs and Duvellovers. Made to enjoy with friends and family. Perfect to serve at the end of a festive meal or next to a crackling fire this fall. This special beer pairs well with strong cheeses, game dishes, (grilled) meat dishes, chocolate, exotic fruit, pumpkin, sushi or cinnamon.
The special beer will be available from October 2020. And because the experience and the beer is so unique, the beer comes in a special gift box. By the way, it is a limited edition. There are only 71,820 bottles. So Duvellovers will have to be quick if they want to get hold of a coveted bottle of Duvel Barrel Aged 2020.
A beer that has matured to perfection deserves a special treatment. Ideally, Duvel Barrel Aged Rum Edition should be poured at a temperature between 8°C and 10°C. The heavenly aroma comes into its own in the specially developed tasting glass that you'll find in the gift box. A wine glass, a tulip glass or a tumbler can of course also be used to degustate Duvel Barrel Aged.
