3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with a big tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, strong raisin. Flavor is sweet and fruity, a little tart with a thick yeast ester undertone. Fairly malty and well balanced, it finishes a little sweet on the palate. Alcohol is noticeable but not unpleasant. Very good traditional strong Belgian.

Brune claire, mousse avec des reflets cuivrés, la mousse laisse une belle dentelle sur le verre en retombant. Nez très complexe de fruits secs (raisins, marrons, pruneaux), pudding, alcool. Bouche assez complexe également, Fruits secs, alcool, levure, épices. Légèrement sucrée, légèrement amère, corps important, alcool omniprésent à tous les stades. Très très bonne bière !

Dark brown colour. Aroma of dark malts, caramel, raisins, dark fruit and hops. The same is the taste. Alcohol is notable. Overall Very good but for me still not in the same rang with the best beers of this style.

13/03/2015 sample from 33 cl bottle @ beertasting by Jerre, Melden.
Hazy brown with nice head. Aroma : Malts, raisin, toffee. Taste is malts, yeast, licorice, caramel, some bitterness. Nice mouthfeel. 2nd beer I had that feels like a liquid "praline". Abbaye des Rocs rocks!

Very much a typical triple in my experience and very nice for it. Fruit, hop and malt in great balance. A touch sweet but not too much.

Pours a dark amber liquid. Dont know what it smells like but it makes me not wanna drink it. Taste is not really that great. Dont know perhaps this bottle has gone bad or i really dont like this beer. To be continued...

Draught at Beer Trappe. Big boozy brown sugar and caramel beer that makes me think barley wine more than anything. Tasty but big.

Copenhagen 19/10 2014. 75 cl bottle brought by my brother in law. Shared the bottle. Pours golden brown and hazy with big beige head. Big chunks of yeast whirling around at the bottom. Aroma is concentrated, Spicy and fruity. Medium carbonation. Taste is surprisingly light for a beer containing 10 % of alcohol. You can taste the alcohol but in no unpleasant way. Ripe fruit. Spices. Good Belgian trippel.
