corkyrory66 (575) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
Bière triple de seigle mûrie en fût de bourbon titrant à 10 % abv. Couleur brun rouge moyen, et roux clair en transparence. Clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonne centrale. Mousse qui fait un nappage beige caramel. Arômes merveilleux de fût, bourbon, réglisse, pruneau, amande, noisette. 1ère bouche soyeuse à veloutée, avec une emprise maltée, accompagnée de fruits mûrs, de bois et d’épices orientales. Arrière-bouche pleine, dense, large, ample. 2ème bouche avec finesse et complexité. 3ème sur des nuances de whisky réelles et fortes, du bourbon nettement. Arrière-bouche de bois intense sur un malt profond. La longueur offre une admirable harmonie des saveurs, une ampleur sans pareille, des nuances superbes dans tous les registres. La levure possède une incroyable densité et complexité, merveilleuse veine. L’alcool tient une splendide progression dans le soutien total aux saveurs. La finale invite à se pourlécher les babines et se délecter pendant 10 ans … CONCLUSION : une extraordinaire production d’une qualité superbe,, avec une profondeur de brassage sans nom. Une bière strictement admirable, et … incroyable mais vrai … sur 123 cotes elle n’a pas encore obtenu de 5 !!!!!!!! je lui donne un rate approximatif de 666 sur 100 … Excusez-moi.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Alweer een absolute smaakbom van de beste brouwers ter wereld. Absoluut fan van deze gasten. Dit bier is weer absolute top. Smaken van (gerookt) hout, peperkoek, kandijsuiker en drop. Superlekker met heerlijke afdronk.

33cl bottle poured in a Trappist glass. Pours a dark tripel akin to a Gulden Draak but with very little carbonation and no head to speak of. Mouthfeel is smooth and thick. Taste is reminiscent of the fruity and spicy notes found in Paanepot but with added toffee flavours making this an easier drink but not in my opinion a tripel. Fantastic beer.

Grzesiek79 (3208) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 6, 2014
Vintage 2013. Swietne zytnie potrojne piwo. Z aromatem niesamowitym sliwek wegierek marmolady i powidel do tego rum chlebowa skorka i opiekany tost. Alkoholowe cieplo szlachetne i Burbonowe estry. Rok tylko potrzymalem ale mozna z pewnoscia wiecej i wiecej dostanie sie od tego szlachetnego piwa. Karmelowy posmak slodowy ale stonowany, kroluje tu taninowosc winna i wytrawnosc oraz rozgrzewajacy alkohol na koncu, dlugi finisz pozostaje w pamieci. Fajna kremowa i spora piana bezowa jak na to sterzenie alk trzyma sie dosc sporo nad tulipanem

33cl bottle at home. Dark brown with a medium off-white head. Medium to full body with light carbonation. Very sweet with some bitter spicy tones. Caramel, brown sugar, spices, some licorice, raisin and vanilla. A full flavoured complex experience.

Hanoi (395) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2014

Taste is rich dark fruits, sweet malt, vanilla, yeast, almond, oak, bourbon notes and a warming alcohol finish slightly bitter note in the end which does not quite work. The mouthfeel is thick and warming. Very good beer which is rich, smooth and warming. Delicious

bmerz (709) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 27, 2014
2012 Draught at Breukelen bier merchants. . 2 ish years old. Aroma is raw honey, rye, moderate bourbon vanilla, red apple skins. Flavor leans more bourbon start and the flavor is more like a great quad with a spicy rye end. There is a deepness that I believe is the age. Feel is velvety and viscous, lively enough. Absolutely fantastic beer.
