COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The biggest beer we’ve ever brewed at Blue Mountain, coming in at almost 12 percent alcohol by volume. But it’s also one of the lightest-colored brews we’ve ever created! Brewed solely with Pilsner and Vienna malts, and we used the same amount of barley it would take to make 1000 gallons and packed into just 500 gallons worth of the smoothest, fullest-bodied, strongest winter brew you’ve ever had. This lager defies most standard beer categorization (Germans would put it in the Doppelbock category), but we’re calling it a blonde Triplebock. The name says it all... It won’t take many of these and a long winter’s nap will be all you’re capable of doing.

BeerandBlues2 (9992) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle @ home. Pours clear dark amber with a small, frothy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is perfume alcohol with toast and cookie malt, spicy hops and light caramel notes.

Sammy (8849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
A big beer, worth trying, and fresh from New Jersey. Big foaming head leaving a lace trail. Smooth mouthfeel and a light bitterness in a malting, better as it warms. Like an ice bock.

Drake (8766) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a medium creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Big bready and doughy aroma with grainy malts, faint fruity notes and caramel. The taste is bready malts, raisins, caramel, toffee and some booziness. Medium-full bodied. Interesting beer.

GT2 (8684) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Tap at Granville Moores thanks to brainlair. Clear orange amber. No head. Very sweet cloying cherry juice box nose. Taste is sugary juice box, odd bitterness, still cloying. Syrupy to near medicinal. A bit salty and sweaty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blipp (6249) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Draft. Pours gold with a whin head. Honey sweet aroma, with bready malts and fruity melon-like notes. The flavor has honey, peach, bready malts, caramel, and light toasty notes. Solid.

Braudog (5873) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle, caged and corked. Crystal-clear amber pour, just a fizzle of a head. There’s little to no aroma here. But the beer drinks with a nice viscous character, and a smooth high gravity burn, like warmed honey. Malty and almost lagery on the surface, this carries a bock-like kick in the middle. Sip it.
