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

Pours a rich amber color with a small amount of lacing and some floaties. The aroma is wonderful with brown sugar, caramel and alcohol (what a great combination). The taste is very similar with strong caramel tones, brown sugar and an almost fruity based alcohol taste. An odd beer, but very enjoyable!

Radek Kliber (6681) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 25, 2005
Pours neat creamy top and that despite dangerous high levels of alcohol. Creamy brown ale. Aroma filled with earthy, spicy tones, behind malt and hops .Medium bodied, low carbonation, well executed aged ale. Late light hop character.

A little on the sweet side, but still great. Lots of chunks add to the adventure - give it a try... I scored my bottle from the beer manager at Whole Foods in Sarasota - you have to ask him as it’s not displayed...

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 [bottle - capped and corked 750 ml] Dark copper pour with a very thick tan head and lots of sediment. Sweet aroma of yeast and malts. Nice and light flavor of apples, yeast, malts, alcohol and caramel. Definitely hides the 10% well and finishes very clean.

Bottle. A very sweet smell and equally sweet taste. Nice borwn pour with a light tan head. Mellow smooth flavor for a triple. Amazingly sweet finish that leave you very content.

bottle-thanks to zuchinnicat for sharing this one. pours murky brown with a small off-white head. small, off white soapy head. candy sugar, caramel apple and bright vineous qualities. This beer doesnt look or taste like a trippel at all. Well, i guess its considered a BSA. go figure. light alcohol aroma and light notes in the flavor as well. cloying sweetness in the finish. I think i will revisit this beer, but i think i nailed it pretty well here.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Very fruity smell with a touch of malt. Pour is very dark for a triple, with a big, frothy head. Taste is a bit cidery, a lot of alcohol presence, some plum and grape. Not anywhere near as complex as other triples I’ve had but not as aggresive either, which makes it much more drinkable.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Dark mahogany body with a thick, frothy beige head. Aroma and flavor of mustard, herbal and spicy phenols, maple, roasted figs, chestnuts, and steak marinade. Flavor is complex with lots of dark malt and woody notes, but has some overcooked fruit qualities and comes across sweet, thick and cloying. Not at all bad, but disappointing compared to its fantastic siblings.

3fourths (8602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2005
750mL bottle. Dark amber brown body with a peppery, toast colored head. Intensely sweet aroma, full of candi sugar, plums and dates, brown sugar, maple syrup, bready waffles, and a peppery, spicy sweet sugar and yeast scent. A little harsh on the palate, not necessarily alcohol, but a biting yeast and fizzy carbonation, with a semi-thick body. Sweet overall, cloying even, with an emphasis on brown sugar. Not as good as the other Abbaye des Rocs styles, so I’m a little disappointed. Overall it’s too sweet to be great, but also not as complex as the brune. Having an old bottle might also affect my impressions, since I can taste a very subtle oxidized flavor.
