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

By all means a solid Tripel, but again, the Brune is where it’s at with these gents.

750 ml to tulip (shared by tastybeer). Looks subpar; LOTS of sediment though. Amberish brown with off-white head that dissipates into lacing and sediment out the wazoo. Smells of dark fruit and Belgian yeast with a fairly sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid beer, but the appearance really detracts from its overall pleasantness.

Derek881 (996) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Poured from a large bottle into a trappist-style glass to drink. The beer had a deep, cloudy amber color with a slight brownish hue and some light, noticeable sediment. It had an enormous foamy and bubbly off-white head with good retention, leveling off to a modest-sized head, along with excellent cling and lacing. The aroma featured a nice array of floral notes mixed with some dark fruits and a candy and sugar effect as well, but could have been a bit more pronounced. Its taste was mostly sweet with a slight sour touch that had soft, dark fruit notes, along with a sweet candy component. The beer was soft and subtle on the palate, with average levels of carbonation and life, but had a filling, creamy mouthfeel and was a touch dry.

Donker amber/bruin met minimale witte kraag, jammer dat het gistdepot wat los is gekomen Aroma: zoet, caramel, rozijn, pruimen, donker fruit Smaken caramel, zoet, donkere fruiten Zacht, zwakke tot lichte body, waterig zelfs voor een tripel van 9 á 10% Etiket aan de voorkant zegt 10%, etiket aan de achterkant zegt 9%.

Elle est brune opaque, garnie d’un col mousseux tirant sur le beige, dense et persistant.Des arômes de raisins secs, de bois sec, de tourbière et de sous-bois en émanent. Un goût épicé et alcoolisé, qui laissa passer des saveurs similaires aux odeurs, dans un régistre différent, moins prononcé. Des pointes anisées et herbacées. Un plaisir gustatif évident avec ce bel équilibre. (M.A. 18 oct 2014) (811-150913)

Pours dark cloudy brown with creamy thick head. Scent of dark fruit & booze. Taste is deeply Belgium. Thick sweetness malted soy with light cocoa finish. Tried & true excellent.

MarcoDL (1984) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2013
Very taste quadrupel/barley wine/sweet imperial stout of the masters of Abbaye des Rocs. Taste is complex and rich with notes of dark fruit, raisin, dark chocolate, coffee and some spices. Great beer.

Frovigalning (2879) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle from a shop in Belgium, bought in 2011. Fruity and sweet smell, berries, raisins and almonds. Similar taste. Very strong carbonation, it got allot better when I rolled the glass for a while. Very nice beer, lots of flavour, rich and complex.
