COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shadow of Truth is a black tripel, a big Belgian beer that is a simple twist on a traditional style. The result, however, is quite complex. Jet black, smooth, and dry.

AirForceHops (4692) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Draft @ BCTC, Ommegang Brewery. August, 8, 2015. Dark brown in color, thin tan head. Aromas are light cocoa, light roast and toast, toffee, ash.

Flavor of cocoa, sweet and bitter cocoa, touches of roast, white chocolate hints. Medium body with a charred grain texture. Finish is shows some Belgian yeast. What the hell is a black Tripel anyhow??

Backlog. Draft taster at Spacebar. Deep brown with bare offwhite head. Raisins, dark fruit, grains, cloves, citrus. This was a bit of a mess. Not a fan.

No aroma. Ruby black, thin head. Somewhat tart raisin and prune. Finishes with twigs and grape seeds. Light body, moderate carbonation. Pretty solid example of a Belgiam Christmas beer.

RussianDragon (574) - - JUN 16, 2014
On tap at Ledo. Pours a dark brown with light passing easily. Beige head fades quickly and leaves little lacing. Aroma is mild, bread, lightly toasted malt, yeast, and overall sweet. Flavor is mild and sweet, not similar to a Tripel. Malt, bread and slight spice complexity typical of homebrew.

solidfunk (5475) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Kind of a random experiment. Certainly no tripel. Pours black with good head and lacing. Some floral yeast here and some light roast. Some sweetness in finish. Tap at Black Squirrel.
