Bad Habit is an Abbey style Triple (8.5%). Inspired by the classic Belgian Triple epitomised by the brothers at Abdij der Trappisten van Westmalle near Antwerp, it is paler and stronger than a dubbel. Brewed with Pilsner malt, malted wheat, malted oats and light sugar, it is hopped with US Citra and Slovenian Dana, and spiced with coriander, dried orange peel and Grains of Paradise. Like Cardinal Syn it has been matured for three months and bottled by hand. The beer pours burnished gold, with a complex and enticing aroma of Easter spices and bitter orange marmalade and a dry finish. The beer should be enjoyed in moderation served elegantly in a chalice or large wine glass, and would make the perfect accompaniment to a creamy, mature soft cheese.

BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2016
75cl bottle at the Shrewsbury Beer Share Group meeting on 7th March 2016, cheers Mat for this offering. Re-brewed, now at 8.2% ABV (dated as bottled in Dec 2015). Slight haze to the pour, amber with a wispy white head. The aroma was yeasty, with an orange and coriander twist, the taste similar with a spicy yet semi-sweet feel to the flavour.

75cl bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, March 16, courtesy of myself. New batch, 8.2%, bottled Dec 15. Pours hazy amber, white head. Aroma brings good yeasty tripel esters. Taste is similarly yeasty, nicely balanced with a smooth sweetness. Not a bad effort.
