Spicy yeasty aroma with some sweet notes, too. Spicy, cloves, yeast, and some sweet sugars and malts, too. A nice bite of yeast on the finish. Pretty decent beer. Doesnít feel 10%. One of my favorite strong beers to buy in bulk.

A great tripel. Heavy on the alcohol, but itís hidden well enough that it doenít feel like 10% alcohol. Nice and dry at the end, itís not overly sweet, which I like. A great local brew.

Stumbled on in a Westchester gas station beer cave. Poured from a bottle. Amber in the glass. Hefty fine bubbled head. Syrupy pour and a lot of carbonation. Nose is sweet caramel. Palate is round sweet, sticky, up front. Grains carry a little weight to help with balance. Pretty good for gas station beer.

Bottle from HO1K. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white ring. Strong aroma of tartness, yeast, and bread. Medium carbonation. Clingy, lightly oily texture. Nice mouth feel. Taste is mostly mildly tart yeast with a somewhat dry finish. Kind of one dimentional. Would be better if the flavor was more complex. Hides the alcohol well.

This is one of the single best beers Iíve had in quite some time. Itís got a beautiful color, a rich taste, and a smooth finish for a beer thatís 10% abv. I love this beer.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a cloudy golden color with a white head and some lacing. The aroma was underwhelming. It was alcohol and spice. The taste was yeast, banana, clove, and booze. There was a nice carbonation with a slight alcohol burn. The alcohol was noticeable but still hidden for the actual content. This was pretty good.
