Dark Triple with enormous scale of flavors. This excellent and very elegant appetizer feels like it is made exclusively for kings and emperors

Volontaire et authentique, cette belle brune à de jolis reflets rougeâtres. Peu de mousse et un goût puissant esquissent un subtil mélange d’arômes de café grillé et de chocolat. Une petite bombe donc!

Maakun (2867) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2016
Bottle at home. Bit of a gusher. Dark mahogany with fizzy beige head. Dades, dried figs, milk chocolate, plums, raisins, lots of sweet malts, toffee, roasted dark bread, peach, dried sugared strawberries. Just lots of fresh and dried fruits with thick maltiness and some roasted and chocolate notes. Over medium sweet and light alcohol bitterness. Full bodied with mouthcoating carbonation and a light thin alcoholic finish. Wow this is again a great beer from Des Rocs.

Small frothy offwhite head. Fair lacing. Mostly diminishing. Dark-amber flat thick body. Aroma: moderate malt, chocolate, pear, port ruby, dried fruits. Initial flavor: moderate sweet (fruity, overwhelming caramel, alcoholic). Final flavor: moderate sweet light bitter (balances, but not enough); long duration. Palate: medium body, lively carbonation, metallic light alcoholic finish, watery/oily texture. Malty backbone. Light warming. Last glass with sediments galore. 160s usd15

SinH4 (2172) - Garching, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2016
Amber color with tan head, with floatees. Aroma is prunes, figs, phenolic, toffee, no dark malts in the sense of coffee, just the dark fruits. Taste is prunes, toffee slight tartness, phenolic and tart finish. Typical high carbonation. I have high expectations of Des Rocs, and this did not disappoint - Awesome!

jamestulloch (3083) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle from Bottle Baron. Hazy ruby/brown body with a lots of yeast chunks floating around below a thin off-white head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of fig, red apple, nuts and peach. Flavour of toffee, red wine and raspberry syrup. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Light fizz. The alcohol is well hidden but it does not drink easily.

Bawelt (411) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 28, 2015
Pas si extraordinaire que cela. Loin de la même. Nez caramelisé, légèrement épicé, sur fond de levure. Bouche à l’attaque plutôt franche et épicée. Assez équilibrée, on part sur la réglisse en dominante, une pointe d’anis. Cela reste assez rond avec le fond caramelisé. Le tout est vite dissipé et offre aucune longueur tant la fin est aqueuse. Bonne mais manque de caractère.

Meh. Ingen favorit. Lite för stark för att inte ha så mycket smak. Domnar munnen

Une bière énorme tant par sa robe profonde à la mousse crémeuse que par son nez puissant et complexe, épicé et fruité. La bouche n’est pas en reste, la matière est imposante, la bulle est onctueuse et la finale à la fois riche et équilibrée. Un délice absoilu.
