4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark ruby with a little hit. The smell is one of sweetness--both dark and tart fruits. The taste includes fruits as well as some molasses, raisins, and a bit of roasted malt. The body is medium and sweet, with a little bit of tartness coming in. Drinkability takes a little hit, as this one is a little too sweet, but overall a very nice representation of the style.

Picked this up on a trade from one of my east coast bruddas’. Been sitting on this for some time and it still came out great. Poured a deep deep amber, little head, maybe old, but not a problem. I was a big fan of the taste on this, big fruits, banana bread, good sweet stuff. Overall loved this beer, reminded me of the Flat Earth Belgian, I will be drinking this again hopefully.

Amber color pour with an off white head. The aroma was dominated by sweet candies. The taste pretty much followed suit and was dominated by sweet Belgian candies.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ brew pub. Darker amber in color. Head was small white bubbles that left lace. Aroma is yeasty, sweet candy sugar and honey, a touch of fruity esters. The taste includes fruits as well as some molasses, raisins, and lots of roasted malt. I liked this much better then the Belgian triple. It maybe a bit sweet for some people but not if you like malty brews. I would buy this again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled during Dark Lord Day 09 via roving growler at around 7 am. It’s never too early or late for a beer. Pours a semi-clear light copper amber colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of golden grain malt, some light candi sugar, a hint of pear, yeast and a touch of spice. Taste is medium bodies, very light in carbonation with a sweet flavor of golden grain malt with some wheat character, some light caramel, spiced pear and candi sugar. Finish is quite sweet with a quick disappearing golden grain malt with a hint of candi sugar.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown pour with a ligth beige head. Aroma is yeasty, sweet candi sugar and honey, a touch of fruity esters. Mouthfeel is medium, flavor is very sweet, a bit of burnt sugar, some light apricot date esters, and some molasses. A flutter of booze near the end and on the finish. Not bad but a bit sweet for me.
