Velvet Boot

Velvet Boot label

Velvet Boot ~ 7.5%ABV
An amber Belgian-style Dubbel with an exuberant aroma of rum-soaked banana that gives way to brown sugar, caramel & spice. Brewed with lashings of Belgian dark candi syrup for an authentic complex taste. Serve at 8-10°C.

Best Before VS Vintage
Some bottles of Velvet Boot have a Vintage on the label, not a Best Before date. Beer which has an ABV (Alcohol By Volume) at or above 7.3% ABV can be packaged (like wine) with a Vintage and date of packaging. Like wine, beer packaged with a Vintage has no Best Before and does not expire, and like wine can be cellared, potentially for years. Beer which is cellared will likely change character, possibly losing some strong flavours and allowing other flavours to come to the fore. Even though high ABV beer can be packaged with a vintage, sometimes we package it with a best before (of perhaps 5 years or more) anyway because some export markets require it.
