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

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 (8801) - 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.

JK (5330) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2006 Light brown and cloudy with sediment. Aromas of nuts and fruit. The malt flavor is predominant, and it is a little sweet. Full bodied, and a near perfect beer. The muddy appearance and the abundant malt make this much like a dubbel; although a strong one.

Not quite as good from the bottle as from the tap, the flavor of candy flavor is too strong. But still very good.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Opaque, light brown with lots of floating chunks and a fat loose orangish head. Rich and yeasty aroma with citrus, plum, pomegranite, marshmallow, toasted malt. Tart and a little oxidized. Earthy sweet flavor with prune and pineapple and some wood shaving notes. A bit chalky in the finish. Nice body. Seems like it should be layed down for a while to mellow.

JCW (1277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2005 Very good beer, heavy for a triple. Well carbonated. Rich brown color with a tan head that overflowed my RB tulip glass with each pour. Aroma of prunes, molasses, carmel, rye bread and dark sugars. Flavor is mostly sweet. Creamy mouthfeel, with a wet finish.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2005
Cloudy dark brown w/ light brown foam. Aroma is malty (caramel, molasses) & fruity (raisin, plum, prune), spicy & lightly yeasty. Creamy, full-bodied feel. Flavour profile is sweet & fruity w/ some light acidic edges. Finish is dry, warm, & moderately bitter.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2005
330ml bottle, 2004 vintage. Richly fruity aroma, malty and sweet with notes of light brown sugar and spices including cinnamon, allspice, clove and coriander along with suggestions of fresh orange, apple and cherry, some must and wood shavings in the background. Dark, opaque red amber color with a fine, thick, lasting head and sheets of lace. Flavor profile is complex and powerful, with aspects of strongly sugary malts, a plentiful array of fruits and spices and finishing with a bittersweet, hoppy, gently tart, citric and peppery alcoholic twinge. A smooth, creamy, expansive palate and nicely full body support the flavors well. Impressive and satisfying.
