Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Marris Otter, Black, and Crystal malts, Oats, Target hops.
Launched as a 7.2% abv bottle conditioned beer in 2005 when the brewery moved to Witney. In 2011 briefly switched to filtered in 330ml bottles, then back to bottle conditioned at 6.7%, later returning to 500ml bottles. Name changed from Triple to Triple III in 2015.
Thanks to the two fermentations in the Brakspear ’Double Drop’ system, this highly aromatic and satisfying strong beer delivers its rich flavour with subtlety and balance. Crystal, Black and Maris Otter pale malts provide the backbone of this outstanding rich beer. Hops are added three times to provide a good balance between bitterness and fragrance. This is a triple hopped strong beer, packaged in individually numbered bottles.

lusikka (6949) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 14, 2013
500 ml bottle. Rated on 13.4.2013.
Pours a dark amber orange colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, honey and sourish berries. Flavour of horribly sweet bready malts, grassy hops, pear and pineapple, lactic acid and some wood. Alcohol comes through. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and low carbonation. Not my kind of a beer.

Bottle. Ruby brown ale with no head. Aroma of sweet syrup. Taste is sweet syrup, rum and alcohol. Not one of the better ESAs.

Bottled. Pours clear copper in color with a small off-white head. Butterscotch, light boozyness and straw in aroma. Hay, light butter notes and some grassy notes in taste. Some sweetness as well. A bit dry and some booze in finish.

TET (1994) - FINLAND - MAR 31, 2013
A redbrown beer with a quite weak and blond head. Aroma is quite complex, fruits, toffee, fruit cake, sweetness, some red berries. Taste of caramell malts, fruits, spices and some drying wood, hint of strawberries. The aftertaste is surprisingly dry, some herbss, slightly musty. Medium bodied, slippery, mild carbonation. Nicely light and easy to drink, enough of complexicity without too swwetness, the good beer.

fantti (777) - FINLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin kuparinruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on melko niukka ja kevyttä pitisä jättävä. Haju on hyvin imelän karamellinen, oikeastaan siinä on vahva sekoitus liköörikarkkia ja viinikumia. Marjaisuutta ja loppuliu’ussa tulee myös toffeeta mukaan. Hieman yrttiäkin saattaa olla. Maku on jälleen hyvin karamellinen ja marjaisuus on myös läsnä. Mausteisuus tulee enemmän esiin, viinikumikin on siellä jossain. Alkoholi tuntuu läpi. Suutuntuma on pistelevän humaloitu, alkoholi lämmittää suuta. Vähän turhan alkoholinen brittiale, marjaisuus on kyllä hauska twisti tähän olueen.

tiong (4565) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2013
330ml bottle from Alko

Pours dark reddish orange with a small head. Aroma of caramely malts, toffee and hints of fruits. Taste is malty, sweet and syrupy with hints of caramel. Finish is malty, slightly nutty and caramely. Decent, quite generic English Strong Ale.
