Nice honey in the glass. Definitely ripe fig. A waft of fortified wines. Sweet but then a welcoming equalising sour in taste. Very thick in mouthfeel. Not to be gulped. Surprising orange on the finish. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared by bergstaden. A hazy, dark orange colored beer topped by a finger-thick off-white head leaving some lacing. The aroma is lightly vinous, with some berries, tannins, cellar and wood. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming, with a soft carbonation. Fruityness, some tropical fruits, sugary sweetness, woody hints, tannins and a faint cellar tough. Bitterness and alcohol towards the sweet, fruity finish. Overall a bit too warming, but sure a nice one anyway. 151010

Sweet and malty aroma in a cloudy amber pour. Typical tripel taste is full bodied and well balanced. Barrel ageing makes for a smooth but complex drink.

Flavor is sweet, smooth malt, caramel, dry fruit, smooth, sweet whisky, warming alcohol, wood and moderate but balancing bitterness. Fine balanced body and long aftertaste. Well aged profile, very tasty, perfectly balanced, super smooth. Extremely happy to finally have the opportunity to taste this one.

Bottle from a trade, thanks Nick! Pour is slightly hazy golden with a solid head. Lots of barrel character, cognac, slight booze, vanilla, prunes, light tartness and some herbal notes. Wonderful stuff!

330ml bottle from Slowbeer. The bottle almost exploded over me but that might have been me... Pours amber. Sweet and malty nose, but not too much. Hints of cognac, well balanced, easily drinkable tripel.
