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

This one tastes and looks more like a Grand Cru than a tripel. The pour was turbid brownish clay red with a 2-finger khaki head. The aroma was complex, with notes of caramel malt, figs, plums, raisins, peat, cherries. The taste was fruity, with caramel malt, some peaty elements, and some spiciness as it warms. This one remains fruity throughout, and at times assumes a flavor and aroma profile similar to that of Rocheforte, Westy, and St. Berny. The palate is very complex and very velvety.

Thanks for sharing DrJay! Dark, hazy brown pour with so many floaties, it is unprecidented. Decent head size and retention. Lots of yeast and plum in the armoa, accompanied by sugared malt and some chocolate. Sweet caramel malt, prunes, and chocolate make up the flavour profile. Yeasty, warming finish with a nice bite. Another great beer from ADR.

Draft at Teller’s in Cincy. Poured a ruby color with a small off-white head that diminished slowly. Moderate fuity port aroma with a small alcohol tone. Medium body. Moderate spicy fruit and port with a medium finish with that same small alcohol bite. Very flavorful brew.

Best before "08. Very dark brown/ruby. Big, dense, off white head is solid enough to be a building foundation. If I were small I would walk across it because I would be able to. Aroma of dark fruits, roasty caramel malt, yeast, bit of must. I love this beer. Flavor is royal malt, regal roastiness, saier(?)-like sweetness, aloof alcohol only shows up for the finish, delectable dark fruits, and yummy yeast. Bewildering brew. Full smooth body. Roasty aftertaste with a touch of alcohol. Outstanding. Have to get some to lay down.

Bottle Pours a hazy redish tan with a huge light brown head. An awful lot of chunkys suspended in mine. I even poured carefully leaving an ounce in the bottle. Plum raison and lime in the aroma. Pineapple too. Flavor is not so much the fruity notes and more of the belgian musty notes. The ABV comes through but not much for %10. I can feel the yeast bits and it puts me off a bit. remember that psudo-soft drink from the mid ’90s called "Orbitz"? A nice BSA though.

Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo. Foamed out of the bottle as soon as it was opened - good thing I had the glass ready! Pours a slightly hazy ruby-brown with a lage tan head. Aroma of dark rye bread and various fruits - apple, raisin, and a lot of pineapple. More pineapple in the flavour - strange, as none of the other reviews I’ve read seem to mention it, but it was definately there for me. Also some mild red wine notes, a bit of spice and sugar, and a nice finish that is moderately dry. The alcohol didn’t become noticiable until nearly the bottom of the glass. This was a surprise find and an impulse buy at Premier - glad I grabbed it!

Poured amber with a thick tan head. Very creamy head with good retention. Aromas of courant, port, vanilla, cloves, banana, caramel and toffee. Taste was pleasant and had apple cider in it a long with the other flavors in the aroma. The Port was a bit too much creating too much sweetness. Otherwise I can’t complain. An impressive and unique Dark Triple.

From a bottle into a snifter. Pours a clear, medium amber with a small, creamy, white mostly diminishing head. The aroma is really pretty: Moderately malty of fully-roasted grain, lightly hoppy with a note of pine/resin and a moderate yeasty note of cellar and full of compelling miscellaneous aromas of rosehips, clove, corriander and -- maybe I’m crazy -- there seems to be a note of aspen bark/sap lightly present as well. The flavor starts heavily sweet and lightly bitter and goes into an average-length finish that is both lightly bitter and lightly sweet. The palate is pure meow. The body is full-to-medium, the texture is cream and the carbonation is fizzy. The high-alcohol content is nearly imperceptable. Danger. :) The last signal-flare of carbonation and creamy texture matches well with the mellow, balanced finish and just sends me. B-e-a-utiful!
