3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 mL bottle. It ain’t a tripel, even a dark one. Way too malty. It’s somewhere between a dubbel and a quad. Solid, but doesn’t stand out in any particular way.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep amber brown pour. The nose is plummy and a little bit fudgey. A
fairly pronounced chocolatey note with a touch of molasses and cooked
fruit. Figs, prunes, a touch of herbal character. Hoppy enough to
balance the really luscious sweet fruity notes on the back. Unctuous
malty mouthfeel. Really rich and delicious. Thick and a little bit
toasty. The herbal notes kind of pick up as the beer warms. This is an

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thick beige head. Aromas of caramel, dark fruit and chocolate. Dark, fruity flavors up front--plum, raisin. Then chocolate, coffee, toffee. Finishes with a bit of licorice, coffee, dark chocolate and tart fruit. Substantial booziness. Very complex, fruity and dark. Lively, peppery mouthfeel. This is a good one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Best before 21.01.17. Pours a murky dark caramel with a thin, creamy head that thins to a bubbly ring. Aroma had big, rich aromas of caramel, raisins, dark fruits, cherries, spice, bread, and a touch of woody honey. Taste is a touch sweet with notes of woodiness, caramel, dark fruits, spice, yeast, and a drawn out, slightly tart ending and a touch of alcohol warmth. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Slightly syrupy mouth feel with a fine carbonation and dry finish. Overall a nice beer. Dark fruits, caramel, bread, spice, yeast, wood, and slightly tart cherries.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy dark brown pour, with a dark beige head. Incredibly malty aroma, with loads of dark boozy fruit. Figs, apples, pears, and dark sticky molasses dominate. The mouth feel is thick and luscious, and the carb is soft. The finish is lightly bitter with some subtle spices and a boat load of sweet, sticky malts.

pours a deep amber brown and a beautiful beige creamy head. Aroma is of dried fruits and christmas spices. also spirits. taste is sweet, dried fruity and a liquorice gentle retronasal. spiced hops with an alcoholic halo as a potent beer. perhaps a bit obvious the cognac aftertaste. Excellent quadrupel.
