3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep murky brown with small tan head. Aromas of plums, dates, toffee. The taste is quite sweet with caramel, fig, dates, leather and a light astringency as well. Medium bodied with a creaminess and also light pepperiness. Nice drop.

Maroon body, with a decent head. Aroma is telltale dubbel plum melanoidin with a nuanced cigar box-aged quality and the feintest note of clove. The flavor too is of plum and melanoidins with a cherry and sugar finish.

"Another beer that seemed like they just threw some shit together to see what sticks. Not bad, but not good. Really didn’t know this was a "tripel" ipa. Kinda sweet, kinda sorta hoppy. Hey - it did cover the abv exceedingly well."

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a lightly hazy caramel orange with off-white lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast and malt with notes of plum and caramel. Pleasant on the palate. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Poured cloudy dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted leaving good lacing. Good complex dark sweet fruit and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Good fruity flavor with a sweet finish that had a moderate duration with no alcohol bite. Good brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Dutch’s. Totally hazy amber red orange color, a bit darker. Thin ring of off-white head, just a couple dots of lace. Dark fruit, caramel, vinous notes.. And flavors of oxidization. Keg is dated as April but who knows from what year. Doesn’t taste less than a year old to me, that’s for sure. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Some decent chocolate notes come out once I get further in. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of creamy lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Gets better as it goes. Off flavors fade, good vanilla comes out as I go. Overall can’t ignore the mild musty muddy notes.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml ($9.99) This is a very good beer. Right off the bat its got a very nice and inviting smell. Carbonation is like that of a champagne. An amazingly drinkable beer at 8.1% totally recommend this beer. You will like this too.

It fizzes like a fizzy thing, but then the head leaves. The initial aroma on opening doesn’t carry. But the deep dark colour is fantastic. The initial sweetness carries some fruits and denser caramel or chocolate with it. This is fairly decent. Thanks to the nice people at Liquorland in Forest Hill for having this in stock.
