2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
another one i brought back from the pregabf party. if you bring cases of the same beer people will take one home. thanks to the blvd folks for making a great night better. i taste this beer almost a week after i first had it at the party. i remember telling the brewer that his trippel is good to go, but the dubbel is not.
this pours a nice cloudy maroon with a lasting sticky yellow head.
strong spice aroma with cinnamon,lemon peel, something like corriander or fake vanilla scented candles.
this is thin, mouthfeel wise mainly, the flavor is a bit one sided too, but it has some depth. mainly sweet caramel, and banana with black pepper.
this is not really a beer to make me smile, it makes me furrow my brow and try to figure out exactly what i don’t like. that would be the waxy lemon mainly. i just don’t like the spices, the way they try to mingle with the caramel sweetness is not good. while not a bad beer, i would drink this again, i would not buy it again or recommend to anyone else. and the alcohol is too dominant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the 4th Boulder Strong Ale Fest. Beer poured a hazy, medium red-brown color with a small, frothy, off-white head. The aroma is malty with moderate notes of sweet toasted grain and caramel; hoppy with light notes of herb; yeasty with moderate notes of dough; trace notes of vanilla and sherry, light notes of tea, banana, clove, moderate notes of orange zest, coriander and candy sugar. The flavor was moderately-to-heavily sweet, lightly bitter with a longer-than-average, moderately sweet, tangy finish. The body was light-to-medium, the texture is watery-to-velvety and the carbonation was fizzy-to-lively.
