    I would say that's why some very good beers went out in the first round.

    Imo Duvel is overrated, as Jceg said it's a decent entry level Belgian beer, but that's about it. That being said, TT is pretty good from the cask but the bottled version is rubbish. A tough one to call.

    Definitely highlights differing tastes - Duvel is my favourite beer, I never tire of it. I've had "better" Belgian beers, but I think they're defined as "better" due to scarcity and price. Westveleteren, Rochefort, Westmalle - they're all great and I enjoy them all on an occasional basis but I'd take a Duvel over any of them if I had to choose my desert island beer.

    Would seem unfair to vote for Duvel when I haven't tried the opposition, wouldn't it? aunsure....

    Gooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaalllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    My vote just tipped the balance in favour of TTL from the draw that existed. I agree they are both superb but my long term history of enjoying landlord made it an easy choice.
