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

Taster @ PIB. Cloudy murky rust colored pour. Smells of raisins, dates, spices, and yeast. Tastes of oak, raisins, and a slightly spicy peppery flavor. Candi sugar flavor is very apparent in the beer. Masks the alcohol pretty well, and is truly a magnificant beer.

This Belgian Special Dark Ale was purchased in a 330 ml brown bottle with a best by date of 2007. The beer poured cloudy reddish amber with a three finger tall foamy head that refused to die. The nose was subtly spicy (pepper, saffron), and fruity (apples, pears) with a tinge of earthy yeast, which was hard to keep in the little bottle. The taste was a revelation of lightly sweet and sour fruit flavors with a good deal of spiciness and some woody and herbal bitterness. The body felt oh-so-light and airy, and there was no hint at all of the 10% ABV. In the blink of an eye the glass was empty. Next time I am definitely going to buy the big bottle.

Lots of floaties...lush white head over a beautiful red body. Spicy, dry-fruit-filled aroma. The flavor is incredible. - distinctly apple pectin, chewy and sweet, but not syrupy or too heavy. The alcohol is perfectly masked, dates, figs and prunes abound. Delightful.

notalush (5159) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Cloudy amber/red with large, fizzy white head - sweet aroma, with figs, apple, raisin, plum and toffee - starts somewhat heavy, with plum, chocolate and caramel - some lighter fruity esters come into play later on, like raisin, cherry - some notes of vanilla and brandy - long, lingering finish that can best be described as chocolate pudding with fruit in it...but it works - there is some background bitterness in this that doesn’t quite taste like it comes from hops, but it serves well in keeping the sweetness at bay - I’ve never had a bad beer from them - I wish these products were more readily available where I live.

Pours a cloudy brown with a light beige head. Aroma is of baked apples, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and figs. Flavor is med.-heavy sweet, with huge raisin, hazelnut and caramel flavors. Med. esters. Body is lush and high in CO2. Finish is long and smooth. Just amazingly complex.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Bottle, 750 mL: Pours amber with a large rocky near white head that is fully diminishing. Aroma is loaded with sweetness and fruits, candy notes galore, and just a bit of alcohol. Flavor is typical with dark fry fruits (sweet raisens, dates, prunes, plums), yeast, again some sugary candy touches. The beer is well carbonated and leads to a tickling mouthfeel, which finishes very smooth.

Shag (2649) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2005
A cherry and caramel aroma. A reddish brown appearance. Some citrus, cherries, almonds, and nutmeg in the flavor. It was very sweet and carbonated as well. This was one of the last beers of the Noog Fest so my notes kinda suck. I know I loved it though.
