poured a murky brown with a large head and visible carbonation which kept it going, minimal lacing though. aroma of fruit, spice, caramel, and alcohol. taste was complex as with all the trappist’s i’ve enjoyed, fruit and malt. light perfume aftertaste made me enjoy the tripel more.

From the bottle, 2/26/06: Opaque maroon-brown with a fortress-like crown of foam. Sweet and fruity aroma. Incredibly complex combination of flavors with some spice, toasty malt, sugar, cherry, and light caramel. Beautiful.

Beautiful dark brown body with a medium heavy brown head. Great chocolate and mollasses aromas, also heavy malts and some minimal hops. Very nice body, though with slightly more sharpness in the taste than I prefer. Dark fruits as well as cherrys are evident. Sugary ending, highly enjoyable.
