Cette bière de 10 % abv est caractérisée par le brasseur comme une triple noire. Etiquette noire aussi, bière noire, et bouchon noir avec une date limite en fin 2016... Nous ne sommes par en retard … La bière étant rousse en transparence nous permet de voir des centaines de fines bulles partout. La mousse beige nappe le breuvage avec une tenue bien crémeuse. Les arômes de malt divers : blé, froment, avoine, sont accompagnés de houblon, pruneau, poire et prune. 1ère bouche au volume très doux, souple, sur du café extra fin. Arrière-bouche maltée. 2ème sur des fruits noirs, cassis très fin, pointe de vin tannique. 3ème d’une grande ampleur sur du malt et des fruits mûrs, du café, du chocolat noir. Arrière-bouche très longue, riche, complexe. La longueur présente un grand début liquoreux, puis on passe au vineux du meilleur cru. La levure est belle, structurée et très adaptée au genre. L’alcool est très bien dosé, progressif à la dose parfaite sur la longueur. La finale est très belle, et passe en revue l’ensemble. CONCLUSION : bière de superbe composition, sans reproche et d’un talent fou, brassée à Hoegaarden, mais c’est une pure coïncidence, et ce n’est pas dans un grand local ...

Bardzo dobre i ciemne prawie czarne piwo ze spora piana ale szybko niestety opada, do czego belgowie nas nie przyzwyczaili. Zapach winno-octowy, troche jak wild ale. W smaku podobne do quadrupel lub grand cru. Ale dziwi mnie ze klasyfikowane jako tripel. Alkohol w rozmiarze 10% wogole nie dokucza. Goraco polecam. Minus za skromna i nieladna etykiete

Dark brown colour. Aroma has light roasted malt, quite sweet and a bit fruity. Texture is rich, smooth and creamy. Flavour is quite nutty. Has a light bittersweetness.

33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. No BBF. A dark triple? Nice, something different from a lot of those dull & bland beers. Pours very dark brown, hint black, touch ruby, nearly gone tanned head. Smell is sticky liquorish, touch molasses, roasted malts, sweet, touch dark fruits like prunes jam, sticky, hint roast. Tastes of liquorish, roasted malts, light syrup, touch syrupy de Liège, caramelized apples, dark fruits jam, raisins, prunes, coffee, bitter roast,… Body of a light stout. Very nice stuff, one of the better triples I have had & way better than that other beer from Hoegaarden is these days.

Black color with a red shine and a white head.
Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, slight fruity yeast esters and hop. The flavor starts with a great flavor of coffee, roasted barley and dark chocolate and then finishes in a hoppy finish which is quite dry and has some hints of coffee in it.
Very tastefull beer!
[score: 4.1]

Great lacing. First aroma is espresso, chocolate becomes more sensible. Flavor is very dark chocolate with an espresso finish, slight alcohol touch, raisins, flavor is slightly more sweet then the last one but the final dry touch is still there, slight hoppy notes in there, mainly espresso dryness. . Fat body, awesome drinkability.
[score: 4.2]

Stays consistent.

Erg donkerbruin met snel verdwijnend schuim; geur van kers en peer die fruitiger is dan de smaak - die geeft koffie, donkere chocolade en gebrande mout en valt een stuk zwaarder; in de nasmaak breekt de stout helemaal door. Erg lekker bij zoet fruit.
