***Brassin (Batch) #2***
Appearance: Pours a brown, ruby red body that looks a little murky. Thin off-white head (1 finger) that dissipates quickly.
Smell: Wood, dry berries, earthen & leather.
Taste: Spicy at first then some bitterness & boozy also. Has a bit of a brandy/cognac feel to it. Finishes a little thin. Some notes of caramel. Taste is good but doesn’t last long after the sip.
Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation but a little heavy with some heat. Oily in texture a little bit.

batch 1 - boom. pours clear medium dark golden with a nice white head, some retention and lacing. awkward fruitiness - purple plums, but also apple and grape juice, very spicy - loads of coriander, sugary maltiness - pale golden candi, light woodsy notes - lightly tart vinous notes, lots of booze too, hint of cardboard. moderate carbonation - slightly lacking, light to medium body - oily, bitter herbal-grassy-spicy finish.

A nice reddish brown ale with a thin dark mocha head. In aroma, sweet vinous malt with treacle, dark fruits, like an old ale. In mouth, a smooth sweet vinous malt with dark fruits, light peaty notes, British hops, licorice, quite nice. However, this is not a tripel, in appearance nor in taste...is it the 2 years of aging. Still a solid beer (if it was an old ale). Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark bruin (why) body with a tan head thats shortly lived. Malty fruity apple and caramel with a spiced yeast tone. A sort of sweet and sour sauce note, brown sugar and over ripe apples with a strong finish. Pretty messy, pretty poor. mabel (9245) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2010
[3413-20101002] 341mL bottle. Sweet malt grains and mild sweet grapes aroma. Murky, dark brown body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Sweet roasted malt flavour has hints of mango fruit. Medium-full body. Quite sweet, seems more like a quad.

2010-10-02. Hazy dark brown body, with a nice beige head that fades. 3+ Sweet aroma, dark malt, sugars, mild alcohol. 6+ Flavour is boozy at first, tangy character, the malt character seems a bit odd, touches of vanilla, plum and fruit. 6+ Average plus palate. Dull, this seemed more like a weak quad than a triple. Not great. Bottle from trade with Fred82 PWheatley (119) - , Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2009
340ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium head that quickly disappears. The aroma is malt and caramel, taste is spicy and malty with a thin body. Very sweet, not a nice flavour. I don’t think i will be searching out any ,more Bieropholie beers, over all pretty disappointing. rederic (3341) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2009
Dark amber-copper color, with a thick beige head, yeasty, earthy toasty, caramel malt, mild candied fruity nose of ripe apples, sultana raisins and plums, with a light nutmeg spicy accent and a hint of floral hop grassiness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a warmth honeyed, toasted, biscuity, caramelized malt character, with some brown sugar, toffee, rasiny, plummy,ripe apple faint coffee flavors, with a nice flowery hop grassy note, leading towards a warming, toasty, caramel, fruity ripe apple, grassy hop bitterness finish. Not your typical triple! beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2009
Pours a cloudy reddish brown color with a thin beige head. The aroma has mostly caramel and spices, it’s somewhat fruity too. The flavor has a blend of spices, caramel and mild fruits. This is far from what you’d expect from a tripel and by far the worst beer ever brewed by Bièropholie.
