Bottle, nice dark beer, you can definetly smell the fruit and sweetness of this beer. it is a little bit bitter for me, not like hop bitter but something else, not quit sure. Overall pretty good, but it is not as smooth as i would like.

Jayb0 (1022) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Wrongly guessed that this would be a belgian triple when I ordered it by name only. I was surprised but not unhappy with the beer. It is not really strong or "powerful". It is an easy drinking beer that doesn’t offend, smoothly delivering a decent, maybe overly sweet, malt character balanced reasonably by hop bitterness.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a brown color with ruby highlights and a small khaki head that faded quickly. The aroma was light sour malts and fruity hops. The flavor was malty, vaguely sour and tangy with a light caramel element. The mouthfeel was a bit thin and watery.

Malty aroma, roasted. Pours dark brown. Very smooth malt flavor, hops aren’t very noticable. Not bad, not great.
