3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2006 On tap at the brewpub. The body was dark brown and ruby with a light tan head. The aroma was sweet caramel with pears. There was also some cinnamon spice. The taste was dank caramel with toffee. There was also oak and funky chocolate in the finish. There is a very noticeable alcohol burn. Had this from a growler at another tasting. I gave it the same scores. I tasted a little more fruit of pear in it this time around.

Growler shared by EyeDrinkAle @ Heavyweight open house, thanks Mike. I was pretty um... happy by the time Mike brought out this puppy But I made sure to carfully inspect this brew. So I was really surprised to see that this tripel pours dark... a shade of brown. WTF. The aroma was bready, rye, grainy, with a strong floral/perfumy aspect. A very nice mix. The taste was more concentrated toward a bready flavor. Not your daddy’s tripel but still damn good.

Huge thanks to Eyedrinkale for bringing a growler of this to the heavyweight open house - not your typical trippel, but this IS FFF we’re talking about here - kind of dark copper/brown - yeasty, typical belgian aroma, with a background of banana, lemon - orange, spices, bready/yeasty notes - combine the best of a trippel with some caramel/toffee qualities and you’ll have an idea of what this beer tastes like - interesting, but not great.

Served from a growler Thanks Styles.. Poured with a light white head slight loss of carbonation from a few day old growler to be expected though nice ruby brown appearance. Aromas were initially dark fruit and cherry then a nice whiff of alcohol . Flavor was big with cherry and fig a noticable presence of alcohol definitly. Some shocolate in the finish but not ot big .. I would like to try straight from the tap one day

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2006 Served in a snifter at the brewpub. Poured a dark mahogany color with zero head. The aroma is very vinous with cherry and grape notes in the forefront. Some chocolaty character. Lots of fruit character in the flavor. Again cherry, grape, dates and fig. Chocolate and a subtle alcohol burn. Very easy to drink. Very dangerous. Thanks to Barnaby for the company.
