McGarnigle (643) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 From 750ml, drunk three days after "best before" date. Pours dark brown with a tinge of red. Massive head. Taste is of brown bread, toffee and chocolate. All dessert flavors. Creamy body with tight fizz. 9% alcohol doesn’t really show. Very good.

ChainGangGuy (4881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish brown body with a small, khaki-colored head. Smell: Aroma of musty brown bread baked with brown sugar and earthy spices. Taste: Toasted whole wheat croutons upfront with a candi sugar sweetness and earthy spiciness. A bit of molasses, too. Hop flavor and bitterness is negligible. Hint of grapes and dried cherries on the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation. Drinkability: Not bad. It manages to nicely walk the line between tripel and some other dark Belgian beer that isn’t a tripel.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Pours a transparent dark copper with a nicely-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of sweet doughy yeast and dark caramel malt with some light fruity esters. Body starts with good thickness and malty sweet notes along with some doughy yeast toward a pretty full finish. A little dark for a trippel, but has nice flavor.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Metalic aroma, some roasted malts, brown sugar, caramelly. Pours dark brown, with a thin but dense off white head. Not a bad brown. Caramel malts, rich brown sugars, cararmelized fruits, not bad. Its much better as it warms, at first sip there wasn’t a lot there. Very smooth.

Ernest (7598) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2007
75cL bottle (BB May/08). Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, toasted bread, caramel), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with notes of orange zest and coriander. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Very similar to the regular Brune, but sweeter and heavier. Enjoyable but again not socks-rocking.

BeerandBlues2 (12841) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours cloudy brown with an average, fizzy, light brown head, lasting, good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, nutty), average hops (herbs, grass), average yeast (horse blanket, earth) with notes of apple and pear. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

argo0 (14022) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2007
(750ml bottle) Large and rocky beige head atop clear, deep brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, plum, some anise, spice, light cardamom. Taste is moderately sweet, plum, cookie, some toffee, cinnamon. Medium body, some effervescence. Alcohol very well hidden. Ok beer, though I’m not sure how this is considered a tripel.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2007
11.2 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick tan head. Deep sweet malty aroma with light plumminess and a bit of light berry character as well. Light rum/molasses. Soft spiciness through the middle with lots of sweet toffeeish flavours. Some chocolatey notes with a fair bit of yeasty spiciness. As it warms, more yeasty fruitiness comes to the front with cherry and berry being the most obvious. Dark caramelly finish. Pretty tasty brew. I definitely wouldn’t call it a tripel... more of a dark strong ale, but I think it is very underrated.

Palidor19 (3180) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2007
I enjoy this very much. However this beer does seem to lack the proper flavors that would make this unworthy of a Belgium Triple. Malts have flavors of caramel and rich malts. low hops presence but the malts makes a great drinking
