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

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. Opens with the brewery’s signature gusher. Hazy amber with lots of floaties. Aroma of malt, caramel, biscuits, dark fruits and a bit of alcohol. Sweet flavor with caramel, oxidation and dark fruits. Medium-bodied. A bit oxidized, nothing exciting.

This bad boy sat on the shelf. Its all it did. I’m sure that it sat on the shelf in Belgium, sat on a shelf at the importer, then sat on a shelf at a store for years i’m sure. Then sat at my shelf for over a year. It was actually pretty tasty. Very nice big belgian yeast flavors, and malts. Not cloying or boozy at all. A Shocker. Nicely done.

33cl bottle. Pours hazy dark reddish amber with a ton of yeast flakes floating. Quickly disappearing off white head. Aroma is sweet and roasted malts, molasses, plums, raisins cherries, light buttery note. Taste is similar, good malty base with some burnt sugar and fruity notes again. Medium body, medium carbonation. Excellent

Redish brown, 1 finger tan head. Aromas of yeast, red fruit, sweet malt. Quite malt forward with estery red fruit. Dangerously drinkable at 10%, refreshing.

maekchu (2535) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Yeasty nose, with sweet fruit, brown sugar, and a bit of licorice. Dark brown color with amber edges, thin filmy head, and some goos lacing. Fruity initial, deep and rich, sweet dried fruits -- raisins, light prunes, snd berries, and some alc. warmth. Medium body, but quite light on the tongue. The alcohol is masked pretty well, but it is definitely warming. Complex, sweet, and rich.

erickok (4061) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 18, 2014
Brown body and beige head. Sweet malts, cake, sticky figs, some weak coffee. Taste isn’t as concentrated, probably quite some sugar used here because the alcohol is there without much body. Bit too Prickly carbonation, even within the style. It’s a tat bit disappointing. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Location: Draft at Morrison’s, 10/15/14, Palindromic Rating #4004!

Aroma: This ale has a very sweet aroma, there is heavy toffee, with some caramel, and dark fruit
Appearance: It pours a reddish brown color with a tan head and some drippy, coating lace
Flavor: Tastes heavy sweet, similar to the nose component-wise, with no bitterness to speak of
Palate: This is a rather full bodied offering, it feels fairly sticky, and finishes with some mild heat
Overall Impression: I love me some palindromic rating numbers! Anyway, this is a solid, strong, sweet brew. The alcohol hides well under the heavy sweetness, which is impressive at 10-12% (was listed at 12% on the chalk board at the bar, and is listed as 10% on here). Big, stick, and sweet.
