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

olsvammel (3063) - 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.

Hanoi (392) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. Poured very lively. Nose is bread, brown sugar, touch of honey and syrup, dark fruits, slight spice. Taste is (as others have noted) a dubbel: Dark fruits, nuts, burnt sugar, leather, slight spice in the finish. Apperance is poor, I don’t like the floaters. Mouthfeel is a full but a bit sticky. I like a dubbel so I enjoyed it, but not what was expected.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2013
0,33 l bottle picked up @Kihoskh, København. A slow gusher. A mostely diminishing tall blond top, over a deep amber colored body carrying lots of floaters. Nice vinous-fruity nose, Belgo-yeast, gently sweet toasted malts, and tones of marzipan. Full body. Prickling, champagne-like carbonatio[. Gently sweet malt flavor. Inviting tinned fruits. Vinous in a good way. Light and fresh yeast tones. Fruity, light sweetish malty mouth-warming ending. This bottle was not in its best condition, but the fine qualities shine trough. [Sjællands Odde, 18.07.13]

kevinator (909) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2013
A little disappointed with this one. They bill it as a triple but I would agree with the characterization that this was more like a strong ale. The aroma was yeasty, fruity and alcoholic. The color was a deep ruby brown but with a ton of floaters. Given, this bottle was about 19 months old but ales like this have a good shelf life and it shouldn’t have looked like a school of sea monkeys. I chose not to finish the big bottle. The palate was fine and heavy. The flavors were malty and fruity and a little boozy. Some hops presence. I didn’t leave me wanting more. I’ll probably give it another try some day.

330 mL bottle. Really dark, for a triple. Looks more like a dubbel. Kinda smells more like a dubbel too - the fruit is overripe and bruised, rather than tart. Upon tasting, I have to say that I’m pretty sure this is not supposed to be a tripel. But it is damn tasty, as is to be expexted from ADR. Fruity (raisins, green grapes, orange, berry) and not too sweet. Spice. Christmas cake. Great body.

JStax (2980) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2013
11.2 ounce bottle. Pours a murky, chunky, floaty, brown. No head. Aroma has chocolate, roast, burnt bread. Tastes sort of smoky and sweet.

chinchill (1857) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2013
750ml bottle into a St. Bernardus snifter, About 1 year past the indicated best before date of 06/04/2012, but stored carefully. A: Pours a dark reddish amber with a finger of off-white head. The head quickly recedes to a lasting partial coat and ring. Even the first pour provided a load of suspended sediment, some of which rose and fell in swirls due to the carbonation. Very peculiar looking and not so appealing. The sediment was not detectable by feel. S: Very complex aroma; one of those rare beers where it seems a bit different every time a take a sniff/sip. The high ABV is most apparent here, being quite well hidden in tasting and in the gently warming feel. T: Mildly spicy and sweet, with hints of dark honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, dark bread, figs, and roast nuts. Very nice balance between dark fruitiness, mild sweetness and spices. M: Medium-full thickness; creamy smooth; medium and very soft carbonation. O: An exceptional beer that, given the sediment, is best enjoyed in a darker environment.
