Nose of yeast rolls. Huge, explosive head. Pale, murky brown w/ too much yeast. Sweet with notes of bread and fruit. Odd.

Dark and thick for a triple. Am I misinterpreting the style? RB has it as a Belgian strong. Very good stuff, with a wonderful dried fruit aroma. Raisins and Belgian yeast on the flavors. Great New Year’s Eve bottle.

Bursts forth out of the bottle and all over the table. Nice aroma and color, but too much sour taste.

This is great. Not quite as good as the Brune, but very nice indeed. Aroma is spicy, sweet, and yeasty. Flavor is fruity, choco. Pours out a nice dark amber color with a huge head.

HogTownHarry (6379) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2005
Bottle (330ml). Huge foaming right out of the bottle - after cleaning up a bit, Poured slightly hazy ruby-brown with a huge off-white foaming head, quite a flock of large floaties too. Aroma of spicy roast caramel malt, sour wine, lots of fruits and a huge amount of sourdough yeast - really appealing, quite big. Taste follows the aroma, tons of sour fruit, slightly chocolately candyish malt, sour spice and of course lots of almost mossy yeast. Mouthfeel lively, thick and complex. Really nice treat, despite the mess!

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2005 Big robust flavors of chocolate, dark dried fruits, currants, toffee with a big but well hidden ABV. Very drinkable and not at all intimidating.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2005
Maybe I’ve had too much barleywine tonight because this has that meaty, beef broth barleywine smell to it. Ruddy red-brown with a thick tan head. Molasses, cocoa, rum raisin bread and sweet dark fruits. Carbonation is a little soft and has me wonderinif some escaped as this seems to be a tad stale and soft. There is some musty wood and sugary cookie flavors as well.

PorterPounder (7534) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Marcello’s Wine Market, Baton Rouge, La. - 750 ml bottle. Dark chestnut pour with an ever present thick khaki colored head that leaves a thick coat of sticky lacing. Very sweet enticing aroma of molasses, brandy, chocolate syrup and maple syrup. Flavor has most of the same flavors, with the alcohol making a brief appearance, but not making an obnoxious fool of itself. Pick up dates, figs, brown bread as well. Very warming and a good companion on a cold night. Mouthfeel is thisk and creamy and brandy-like.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2005
A hazy mist wafted from the bottle upon opening. Out poured a thick, brown brew with a frothy tan head. Close inspection revealed particles swirling in the carbonation in spite of careful handling. The aroma was strongly alcohol with notes of dried prunes, molasses, yeast, spice, oranges, anise. Full bodied and creamy. The flavor was fruity and spicy but with the alcohol evident. Somewhat like a mulled cider.

This is darker than I was expecting with a hazy dark leather body and a slightly darker than cream head. The aroma is a bit like artificial lemon, leather (oddly enough) and rum raisin. The flavor is on the dry side, with a touch of caramel and toast. Yeasty, but not excessively so. One of the more interesting tripels I’ve had.
