Duchesse de Bourgogne is a blend of 8 and 18 month old ales, and is an extremely rich, very sweet ale, with a sugary flavor to it. It kind of had an overripe, heavily sweetened plum flavor. I think this is one that I will have to try several times to try and get all the flavors out. I'm really not sure if I'm doing this justice or not, but it was also several dollars for a 300ml bottle, so I'm not about to stock several right now to make that experiment.
