On tap at the 3F Brew Pub. Poured a deep mahogany color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of plums, raisins, overall fruity with a very light spiciness. Tastes of raisins, plums, apples, very light chocolate and very light candi sugar. There was a sweetness present, but not overly sweet that I tend to notice in American made tripels. Light alcohol in the finish, but overall well hidden.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2006
On tap at brewpub and served in a snifter: Crimson hue with a small frothy head and little lace, some oily legs. The aroma has notes of current and fig, mild smoke, earthy yeast esters, light cardamom, and some phenolic vapors.

Wow, very different tasting with a fruity fig forefront supported by a malty base. Some chocolate and sugary background. A sharp bite of alcohol before a subdued spiced finish. The mouth feel is lush and oily, medium to full-bodied. Slight bite and moderately warming on the finish.

Interesting to say the least, not normal for sure, I DIG IT!

Growler courtesy of Pickles @ Three Floyds Pub. #100. Much darker than previous tripels I’ve encountered. A lot going on. Enjoyed with the Czar & CB. Deep reddish brown in color with sweet raisin plumy flavor. Very well done.

Poured an amber color with a medium sized, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits, yeast, nuts, orange peel, and some banana. Taste of caramel, nuts, citrus fruits, earthy yeast, coriander, orange peel and black pepper.

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.

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.

Pailhead (4809) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Growler: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma of plum, banana, light raisin, slight yeastiness, and hints of apple. Pours a dark reddish-brown with moderate transparency and a small off-white head. Lots of sweet dark fruits througout. Lots of grape with light plum and raisin. Yeastiness lingers behind all the fruitiness. Hints of chocolate of chocolate in the finish with only the slightest hint of bitterness. As it warms alcohol becomes slightly noticeable.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2007
from memory, on tap at 3F summer of 06, poured surprisingly dark with small white head. nose of dark fruit and belgian candy sugar. flavor had more dark fruits, plums, raisins, some spices, chocolate, and a alcohol finish. this didn’t come off very tripel like which was obviously the point from "it’s not normal" but whatever, i wasn’t that into this but would be willing to give it another try.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2007
Pours a clear dark amber color with a thin offwhite head. Good and surprising aroma of fruits, spices and chocolate. The body is light with a powdery texture and moderate carbonation. Nicely done.

DrnkMcDermott (2799) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Draft snifter, at 3F’s. No, not baker’s chocolate, more bitter chocolate nibs and over-roast coffees working with book leather and prunes. Also has some apricot brandy taste. Dark color under a thin head that quickly turn to a thin ring with no lace. Some smokiness that sticklers might declare put it way off style, but fascinating and contemplative. Only the burn coffee smell has me ding it for aroma.
