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

Dark reddish brown and cloudy with a frothy tan head - also had a chunk of yeast at the start of the pour. Sugary, dark fruity aroma with yeast&leaves. Dark fruity, slightly sour, malty, slightly nutty flavor that finishes with sugary sweet and a very faint touch of alcohol. Smooth, medium bodied palate.

SinH4 (1599) - Garching, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2016
Amber color with tan head, with floatees. Aroma is prunes, figs, phenolic, toffee, no dark malts in the sense of coffee, just the dark fruits. Taste is prunes, toffee slight tartness, phenolic and tart finish. Typical high carbonation. I have high expectations of Des Rocs, and this did not disappoint - Awesome!

jamestulloch (2686) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle from Bottle Baron. Hazy ruby/brown body with a lots of yeast chunks floating around below a thin off-white head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of fig, red apple, nuts and peach. Flavour of toffee, red wine and raspberry syrup. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Light fizz. The alcohol is well hidden but it does not drink easily.

Bawelt (263) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 28, 2015
Pas si extraordinaire que cela. Loin de la même. Nez caramelisé, légèrement épicé, sur fond de levure. Bouche à l’attaque plutôt franche et épicée. Assez équilibrée, on part sur la réglisse en dominante, une pointe d’anis. Cela reste assez rond avec le fond caramelisé. Le tout est vite dissipé et offre aucune longueur tant la fin est aqueuse. Bonne mais manque de caractère.

Meh. Ingen favorit. Lite för stark för att inte ha så mycket smak. Domnar munnen

Ysok02 (620) - MOns, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2015
Une bière énorme tant par sa robe profonde à la mousse crémeuse que par son nez puissant et complexe, épicé et fruité. La bouche n’est pas en reste, la matière est imposante, la bulle est onctueuse et la finale à la fois riche et équilibrée. Un délice absoilu.

Shark_Pants (534) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2015
Pours red-brown with huge yellow-beige dense rocky head. Aromas of caramel, sarsparilla, plum, cherry. The taste has caramel, dates, raisin, chocolate, lightly roasted grains, high alcohol well hidden. Medium bodied, lightly oily. Quite different but very enjoyable belgian strong/dark tripel.

From elcervecero. In Teku glass. Watching Narcos 1x03. Superb aroma. Good taste, but I miss a bit more thickness.

Bottle from Kris Wines, Holloway. Brown pour with a light beige head. Aromas of chocolate, bonfire toffee, treacle and raisin. Lots of warm, sweet spicy flavours- pepper, chocolate, raisin and candy sugar. Long boozy finish. Nice.
