COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Triple Voodoo Inception is based on a Belgian Tripel recipe but is distinctly different from other Trappist ales. Inception is bright and clear with a sharp alcohol note in the beginning and an added twist of black currant in the center of the flavor profile. The beer finishes clean and has a solid malty backbone. This unique flavor profile was achieved using a special hop varietal. The high hop load also makes it reminiscent of an IPA and gives it that unique California characteristics.

Dfonorow (1418) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2014
On tap at SF Beer Week Opening Gala. Pour is cloudy golden with a foamy white head. Aroma and flavor are both a bit funky - dark fruit, Belgian yeast, cloves, spice, raisins, and booze. Finish is a bit sweeter than the body.

Aquilo (540) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Cloudy golden color with a thick head and lots of lace. Funky aroma Is almost off-putting, but there’s a hint of fruit in there. Flavor is mellow bitterness, with dried fruit notes. Smooth.

FROM NOTES: August 9, ’12. Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a "Beer Hunter" tulip glass. A: Smells like a tripel - deep sweetness, clove and the standard Belgian spices, though slightly modified, with a hint of allspice. A: Pours a medium-dark orangish gold. Clear at first and then cloudy with yeast at the end of the bottle. Only about a finger of off-white foam formed and then settled to ring. Bits of lacing. T: Starts with a mix of Belgian yeast and banana flavor with some spices mixed in. Through the middle a bit stronger spices come through with some fruity esters and lemon flavor and fades to finish with a slightly muddled mix of yeast and spices. P: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and crisp. O: A plesant, well made Belgian on a mountain of hop bombs.

Nocturne (775) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
On tap at Rogue Public House, SF. Hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Good lacing too. Aroma suggests something sweet and fruity and the taste delivers it. A bit too heavy on the banana yeastiness which makes it feel like an amped-up hefeweizen. Tasty though.

Oscbert (1019) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 28, 2013
~Strong malty caramel/toffee aroma with floral and resinous hops. Smells like a hoppy Werthers Original candy. ~Pours a murky honey color with long lasting creamy off white head. ~Yeasty flavors of clove and other spice dominate over the caramel maltiness and resinous hops. ~medium bodied with medium CO2, lasting bitter hop finish. ~Enjoyable brew. Honestly could do without the strong hop bitterness. Prefer classic style Belgian Tripels, but I still do like this.

Nuffield (3668) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Pours a hazy golden, with a white head that quickly faded. Aroma of yeast, gum, light banana, and lavender. Floral front and herbal-hop finish. Rich, coating palate. Funky, good. Jazz88, you’re #1. Thinking of Walt, who was buried today. RIP.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle:   Dark straw, dirty, thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Just as the description states, a soft alcohol nose up front, with a bit of black currant emerging as I start to sip this one.   Very warming, but not hot.   Pale breadiness is how I would describe the underlying beer.   Oh, and some heat.   Very warming for an 8% beer, but again, not real alcoholic on the tongue.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Has a soft hop aspect to it too.   Finishes without the mustiness, yeastiness, or floral aspect that I get out of Belgians, but thankfully its not mealy, which so many US versions are.   Pretty straight forward and simple.   Wished the Black Currants were more pronounced tho.
