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

75 cl. Malty, sweet flavour. Nice body, pretty good aroma. It has the perfect combination of hops and malts. Overall, a very good Belgian Strong Ale.

huineman (588) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 9, 2016
33 cl bottle at Lágrimas Negras (Madrid), served in Bourgogne wine glass. Before I start, let me posit that although this beer is here stated as a Belgian strong ale and by the brewer as an imperial tripel, I can assure it is a monument of a quadrupel: dark brown, with loads of tertiary aromas; silky, sweetish, powerful (10%), without bitterness... That said, let’s taste it. Pours reddish brown, deep and hazy, with a heavy tan head. Intense aromas of chocolate, red berries, tobacco, river pebbles, coffee and honey. In the mouth it feels creamy, soft and sweet. It develops a powerful and fresh taste, peaking on a very long finish with no bitterness whatsoever. Fantastic.

KykoPatykar (21) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 2, 2016
Aroma: Caramel, fruits, brown sugar, chocolate, molasses, hint of alcohol. Appearance: Dark amber, tan 1-finger head. Taste: Medium sweet, fruits, alcohol, very complex. Palate: Full body, creamy slick texture, soft carbonation, long sweet finish. Overall: Very well balanced, complex beer, very similar to Grand Cru version, but not so "great" and also hint of alcohol is more obvious.

PapaCanard (77) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 18, 2016
Volontaire et authentique, cette belle brune ŕ de jolis reflets rougeâtres. Peu de mousse et un goűt puissant esquissent un subtil mélange d’arômes de café grillé et de chocolat. Une petite bombe donc!

Maakun (3883) - 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 (3056) - Garching b. München, 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!
