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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Beer4000 (5050) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2015
330 ml bottle sample at Kjetil’s farewell party. Slightly hazy amber body with a moderate sized off-white head. Nice mature aroma of malt, caramel, dry fruit, mild whisky and wood. 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!

anstei (317) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 22, 2015
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.

Pours orange, hazy amber. Apple cider. Aroma has some delicate alcohol, grapes. Taste is also great, has trippel sweetness, candy sugar, bit yeasty. Warming, sticky and sweet. Hint of alcohol, in a good way. Nice, leaves some sharp stings on the tongue. I like it better than the first version.
