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 (5973) - 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.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2008
500 ml bottle. Tanned bubbely one-finger head over a clear nut brown body. Not very aromatic for an ale; dry dark malts, cocoa powder and dusty hops. Hints of dried dark fruits and coffee. Taste is clean and dry, caramellish malts with some fruity tones. Surprisingly light-bodied with a rather watered down mouthfeel. Crisp, metallic finish. Goes well down, but lacks character.

Furseth (2047) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2008
Bottle; Clear deep red colour, with a nice head. Aroma of öost of sweet malts, caramel,choclate,a d some butter and metalic nose in the end. Flavor is cramel,and some choclate nots, reminds me of a typical dark lager, not an Ale(is this Ale?) Thin body and a short caramelly finish.

olsvammel (4945) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2009
It poured a very dark amber liquid with a small foam. It had a smell of caramell and malt. It tasted malty and caramell with some sweetness. It also had a slight alcoholic finish. It was a bit dry but easy to drink and a bit boring.
