Ambrée trouble, pas de pétillance ni la moindre mousse. Bien maltée caramel, épicée coriandre, fruitée quetsch, on goûte un peu les barils...

beastiefan2k (2808) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - APR 12, 2015
2012 keg on draft at Stumbling Monk in Seattle. Poured into glass with large bubbly head. Dark, slightly dirty golden color. Cannot see through it but it glows. The beer is slightly stale and old with a mild leafy barrel and aged golden malts (stale crust). Its sweet Belgian sugars. The esters are restrained with few banana esters. The barrel is not overpowering. Would actually like to try this fresher.

75 cl bottle shared. Appearane: a quite dark golden color with a large head. head has a good retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma; some vanilla, Wood, Nice esters and spicey yeast. TAste: Sweet,vanilla, wood bourbon like with some esters and yeast and a hint of oranges as a left over from the original triple part. Full body,average carbonation Very nice brew, allthough it’s taste pattern is very dominated by the barrel allthough it does work out nicely.

boFNjackson (4189) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Tap @ BeerMongers Christmas Eve Eve event... Poured dark brown with a retaining head. A little darker then a typical tripel. Nice esters and yeast spices on the nose. Sweet and malty with a mild alcohol presence. Bright earthy tones worked to tame the strong oak sweet notes in this one. A little drying in the end too to help balance it out.

olio (7428) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
75 cl bottle as Tangerine Heated Rare Evil Edition. 2012 vintage. BBE 28.05.2018.
Pours dark golden color with a large head. Sweet caramel and toffee on the nose, some bourbon notes, faint vanilla and some sweet malts, maybe some molasses also. Sweet caramel on the flavor also, wood, toffee, faint yeast and bourbon. Slightly harsh bitter palate, some sourish notes on the finish. Very interesting and tasty.

75 cl bottle @ lusikka, BBE 28.05.2018
Vintage 2012, ” Tangerine Heated Rare Evil Edition”
Aroma has hay, rye and some sweet bourbon notes. Flavour has licorice, anise, woody notes, sweet bourbon tones, vanilla and caramel. Also some alcohol. Only faint traces of tripel in form of soapiness. Too sweet and sticky.

750 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Pours a dark amber copper colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of rich juicy apricot, wood and some berries. Flavour of sweet apricot, sweet strong bourbon notes, apricot and some alcohol. Full bodied. Thick mouthfeel with a smooth, dry, wooden, bourbon-y finish. Really well balanced. It’s sweet but I like it.
