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

jamestulloch (3427) - 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 (544) - 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

Ysok02 (999) - MOns, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2015
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.

Shark_Pants (609) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2015
Pours red-brown with huge yellow-beige dense rocky head. Aromas of caramel, sarsparilla, plum, cherry. The taste has caramel, dates, raisin, chocolate, lightly roasted grains, high alcohol well hidden. Medium bodied, lightly oily. Quite different but very enjoyable belgian strong/dark tripel.

From elcervecero. In Teku glass. Watching Narcos 1x03. Superb aroma. Good taste, but I miss a bit more thickness.

planky84 (2866) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle from Kris Wines, Holloway. Brown pour with a light beige head. Aromas of chocolate, bonfire toffee, treacle and raisin. Lots of warm, sweet spicy flavours- pepper, chocolate, raisin and candy sugar. Long boozy finish. Nice.

ciocanelu (1319) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 28, 2015
Mahogany color with beige head. Aroma has green coffee, a bit of liquorice, toffee and molasses. Taste follows with dried dark fruits, light coffee and toasted malts. Very balanced between the sweet toffee and dried fruits and the roasty, coffee like notes. Body is quite heavy with a good amount of carbonation. This one is quite different from other dark belgian ales. It has some similar yeast quality but the used malts distinguish it from the others. I definitely recommend this one.

BlazerT (499) - POLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle. Deep copper/reddish with tiny to medium light brown head. Poor lacing and head retention. Very rich, complex aroma of caramel, toffee and dark fruits. Taste is semi-sweet neither too sweet nor dull. Medium to full body, creamy/sticky texture, finish is semi-sweet. In general very complex and interesting beer. Definetely worth trying.

Muggus69 (2100) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 05/02/2017 Really good looking beer - holds a well-sized creamy off-white head atop a reddish copper body. Aroma is complex, quite rich; dark caramel, biscuity, nutty malts, dark fruits of plum and cherry, dried fruits of raisin & dates, savoury pepper & spice, perhaps a touch of leafy hop there too. Creamy body, smooth, velvety, hides that big 10% amongst layers of sticky malt & complexity. Lovely body - plenty of sweetness with notes of sultana, prune, dark sugars & burnt caramels, toast & nuts, counterpointed tangy plum & cherry esters & somewhat savoury clove, pepper & nutmeg spice. Bitterness lifted for style but well measured, warming but very subtle on a long smooth finish. Top notch, once again this brewery, their beers have a beautiful complexity & balance & texture about them - this is no exception!
