Dark for a Triple, but that is surely what this is. Unique and highly appetizing aroma of roasted almonds. Rich malt flavors hit first, followed by a balanced bit of aged hops, which is then lost in a nice taste of subdued alcohol. A refined, elegant drink. Superb!

UPDATED: APR 26, 2004 dark ruby red, aroma is a bit smoked with hints of nuts and raisins, with a very hoppy aftertone. Taste was surprisingly hoppy, fruity and fresh, with a pleasant malty aftertone. When drinking this, you feel that alot of work has been put into this.. excellent brew!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled) Dark amber/copper color with a smallish, lacy head. Very fruity, almost port-wineous aroma of berries and burned sugar. A delicious, earthy berry flavor with elegant hopping, a hint of rhubarb, and a sweet but nicely balanced finish. Medium to full-bodied, low-carbonated and syrupy, very smooth palate. Completely hidden alcohol. Another delicious dessert brew from Silly - I just can’t stop loving this brewery! My 800th rating :)

The bottle (from Delirium Café) seems quite old. Hazy amber color; creamy head. Aroma of malt, oxidized. Round mouthfeel; it really seems that the beer is not recent, but the ageing had some positive effect; malty flavor, with a good bitterness level, and traces of ripe apple. Very pleasant.

Had only the tinies sip of this one. Sweet, soft, full malts. Delicate, but assertive, hops. Good balance.

Ok, time for a story.
Once upon a time there were two bottles of La Hervoise and Cuvee des hauts voues. One set went to Rastacouere and was drunk fairly soon after receiving. Another set I kept in my fridge for about a year. My bottles were significantly more clean, less full of yeastiness and the flavors sound like they were less muddled overall. Really strange....I wonder if the long cold rest in the fridge just knocked out the yeast flavor? I do know that the othe rSilly beer I had fresh, with no refridgeration, Silly Cervoise, was yeasty, unpleasant and just overall full of yeast bi-product (unwanted). Whatever the case, it’s another victory for aging beers. And maybe more of a reason to put them in the fridge?? The head, retention and lacing were all nearly perfect on this beer. Distinct, special B and aromatic-like maltiness with raisins, cinnamon, orange zest and an elegant, oily pruniness. Great texture and carbonation level, soft and well-balanced, with no alcohol apparent. Delicious! Not incredibly complex, but very, very drinkable and flavorful. None of that nasty powderiness that you usually get from Silly beers.
