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

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Murky brown and full of floaties, this Belgian strong has a thick, creamy head. The aroma is somewhat piercing, sweet caramel, alcohol, spices, and a drop of chocolate. Smooth to drink, the flavor is more toffee-ish, heated with alcohol, and lightly spiced. Much better than it looks.

Dark brown color, medium sized brown head. Very much yeast with black particles. Sweetness, caramel, licorice and chocolate in aroma, mild toffee, rye and alcohol too. Rich aroma. Full bodied. Flavor has chocolate, sweetness, nice alcohol bite in the end. Mild spices and licorice in aftertaste. Creamy palate. Nice lace in glass.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Sampled at the Portland International Beer Fest 2005. Pours a cloudy red/copper with a thing white head. Very sweet fruit malts up front, kinda creamy caramel sweetness up front dried out by a nice spiced finish. Very nice carbonation and spice dryiness kept this easy drinking and hid the alcohol very well.

zug4abby (287) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 26, 2005
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 (6895) - 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.
