COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In case you’re one of the 3 people that haven’t figured it out yet, we at Iron Fist are fans of everything unfettered by and silly notions of "tradition". So our latest insurrection is a two-for. We brewed a huge Belgian style Trippel and hopped the (expletive deleted) out of it. Being the counterculturalists that we are, we decisively chose to use the finest imported European hops we could get our hands on rather than the ubiquitous West Coast style varieties. We even threw in some varieties so new they still have that new hop smell. A robust malt character helps balance this truly one-of-a-kind brew.
Brewed for KnB Wine Cellars 3rd Anniversary.

Stouts and Porters II. Cloudy amber beer, off white head. Palate is light and a little dry. Mild fine carbonation. Light sweet dry malts, fair amount of sweet aniseed alcohol. Sugary sweet dried fruits and a does of paint stripping ethanol. Has a kind of ramped up Tripel sweetness here but there is way too much obvious alcohol.

bhensonb (10933) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 25, 2012
Capped 750 from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fred is on top of new releases. Pours cloudy, dark, somewhat ruddy, amber. Decent creamy beige head. Aromas of yeast/spice, kandi, light pitted fruit, citrus. Can’t smell alcohol, but I get a burn deep in the trachea. Full bodied. The alcohol is present, but more a flavor enhancement than an issue. Flavor is yeast/spice, pretty roasted malt, hint of chocolate, definitely light pitted fruit, and pretty sure about citrus. And there’s sort of an overarching perfume/floral. Which maybe is a combo of alcohol and fruit esters. Fairly complex ale. The mouth feel is fantastic, and the flavors persist into the finish. This is a great sipper. Tho I’m gonna do the bottle. It is a very tasty ale.

Leighton (10769) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 Bottle shared at Bruce’s, London during The Stouts Tasting, Pt. II - many thanks to Ken-O. Pours hazy, red-gold with a modest, foamy white head. Lots of yeasty, sugary malts in the nose, suggestions of banana, candi sugar. Huge sweet flavor, lots of alcohol, some bitter pine needles and grass, sugary dough, yeast. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warm to hot finish, bubblegum, sugary doughy bread, light white wood, syrupy sugars, dry banana. It is way too sweet and heavy; not a joy to drink during the twilight of a big stouts tasting, but I suppose there is a time and place for a beast like this.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured cloudy orange copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Very complex fruit, citrus and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer that exceeded my expectations.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle. Color is interesting, not even ball park for a tripel (or for most west coast IPAs). Deep amber, nearly a bronze-brown (WTH). Large and lasting, lightly tan head. Good lace. Aromas are of isoamyl acetate, brown sugar, alcohol, persimmons, baked apple, dark fruits, lightly grassy with some herbal hop character. Flavors are boozy, leathery, apple, light nearly applewood bacon like not (odd phenol/ester combo perhaps?), medium bitter, lots of esters, lightly grassy, medium herbal hop character. Medium to lively bubbles, dry and boozy.
