Nose of yeast rolls. Huge, explosive head. Pale, murky brown w/ too much yeast. Sweet with notes of bread and fruit. Odd.

Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur marron aux reflets rouges. Bières très aromatique : du pruneau, du caramel, de la frangipane, de la réglisse. Pour ne rien gâcher, elle développe en bouche une texture soyeuse et agréable. Trouvée à Roby - Menin.

Excalibur123 (112) - Soria, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2014
Color castaño claro, escasa capa de espuma beige que desaparece pronto, en nariz aromas a malta tostada, caramelo, frutos rojos y licor. En boca entrada potente y maltosa, bastante dulce; pos gusto largo y sin apenas amargor tornándose algo seco al rato. Sus diez grados se acaban sintiendo aunque está bien integrado, buen cuerpo con carbónico bajo, buena cerveza aunque parece doble

alexsdad06 (5320) - Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2014
750 ml bottle at home from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a medium sized beige head. There was some sediment floating around. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, dark fruit, raisins, plums, figs, yeast, chocolate, candi sugar, a hint of the alcohol. This is a solid drinking beer that I would have again.

corkyrory66 (520) - BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2014
Bière triple black impériale titrant à 10 % abv. Donc pas seulement bien sûr une belgian strong ale, mais une triple destinée aux rois et empereurs … ainsi qu’aux amateurs inscrits sur ratebeer !!! Couleur brun foncé et roux en transparence. Clarté nette. Bulles par milliers fines et vives. Mousse beige clair qui nappe bien. Arômes de bois de fût, miel noir, fruits mûrs, pointe légère de réglisse. 1ère bouche veloutée sur un merveilleux ensemble malt/houblon très riche. Arrière-bouche d’une rondeur et ampleur fantastiques. 2ème bouche à l’harmonie sublime et la complexité grandiose. 3ème avec une pointe fine de banane et candi blanc. Arrière-bouche alternant malt et fruits confits. La longueur commence en développant toutes les nuances, puis travaille l’ampleur et la profondeur. La levure est fine, complexe, tout simplement grande. L’alcool offre une magnifique progression sur la longueur, en portant ce breuvage sur l’autel. La finale donne des nuances de raisins secs, miel fin et une fine pointe de cannelle. CONCLUSION : l’art merveilleux du brassage est ici représenté dans toute sa plénitude, nous avons un breuvage effectivement digne des rois et des empereurs. Nous buvons heureusement à leur table … Cheers !!

PriorL (1643) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2014
75cl bottle shared with S&G tasting group. APPEARANCE: clear dark blond beer, unstable off white head. NOSE: too sweet, caramel. TASTE: too sweet, caramel, too unidimensional... Very boring and disappointing.

Stuedmaster (197) - Vista, California, USA - APR 10, 2014
This is a very complex, intriguing dark tripel. Pours amber/orange with a thick beige head that lingers, lots of sediment when you hold it to the light. Aroma is of caramel, sweet malt, dark bread, nuts, plum, cherry, and an attic in an old house. Taste is medium sweet and mildly bitter, very fruity, complex, and balanced. Has a silky mouthfeel, although it looks aggressively carbonated in the glass. Has vinous qualities, like a good port. Long, mellow, sweet finish. Has a best before date of Feb 16, 2013 on the bottle but I think it isn’t too old, the age has probably improved the flavor. Would like to check out more styles from this brewery.

Countbeer (4311) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Quite a big beige foamy head with a clear amber brown colored beer. Aroma has lots of red fruit and caramel and hints of flowers, sweets, soap, sweet malts, some sweet wood and some red fruit candy sweets (slight). Flavours of red fruits, cream, malts, bitters, some sweets, light herbs, some caramel, some wood ish tones, some sweet nuts and caramelised hay/grass. Aftertaste is malty, red fruits, bitters, some herbs and light caramel. Low carbo, creamy to silky mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a light creamy to oily texture. This is very nice indeed!
