Keg at BD AGM. It pours hazy deep amber with a small white head. The nose is sweet, doughy, candy, spice, earthy, wood and dried fruits. The taste is sweet, candy, booze, toast, spice, brown sugar, varnish, leather, wood and orange muffin with a warming finish. Full body and fine carbonation. A bit hot and boozy if truth be told.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle from Julio’s Liquors. Amber color with bubbly, spider web lacing. Aroma is candy sugar and yeast with an undertone of floral hops.
Flavor shows grapefruit, stone fruit and caramel upfront. The base has a strong amount of malt in the body to make that huge ABV level. As it warms the hops kind of take over and show the floral, citrus and a touch of resin. The 10.5% ABV is really well hidden and has to be respected. Because after drinking 11 oz. I could really feel it. Really nice flavor that will sneak up on you. Nice stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is really tasty, but far away from a Belgian Tripel style beer according to me. For me its a mix of Barley Wine and a typical hoppy American IPA. I can hardly find the yeasty tones i was expecting. As a beer its great, but its not what they say it is, but the grade is for the beer and not the label.

Draft pour into a wine glass. Pours a hazy gold with a white head of foam. The aroma has floral and citrus notes. Some esters. The taste is big sweetness initially, but it dries out and becomes a little bitter. Big body and moderate carbonation.
