3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big beige colored head, changes very slow, on top of a deep hazy darker orange amber colored beer.
Smell leather, smoked malts, some hints of soap, fruit (peach and apricot) and some hoppy floral tones.
The taste is quite intense: grains, bitters, smoke, spices, at first a close to nasty grainy bitterness but after a short while it disappears, there is fruits, muhrooms, stone, fungus, hint of hops, leaves, a dryness and smokey malts.
Aftertaste is bitter, grainy, fruity and hoppy, like a normal tripel.
Medium carbo, spicy and lightly blown mouthfeel, good medium body and a creamy texture.
Strange beer, strangely balanced typical triple with some smokey smell and different and strange taste. strange but not bad!
