COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An Orc chieftain who ruled for 150 years, Bolg would drink his grog of choice and no one would tell him otherwise – a flavorful strong Belgian Tripel. Some said it refined an otherwise gruesome character.

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle:   Orangish straw in color, hazy, thin white head, little lacing.   Sweet yeasty and bready nose.   Bright on the tongue, very yeasty, slightly musty, a touch floral.   Very much an American example.   Not bubbley and floral, heavier but thankfully not cloying.   Tiz sweet tho.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Lingering heavy yeastiness, bready, and soft fruity notes.   Decent, but I do now think that a whole bottle might be tough for one individual.

1pt 6fl oz bottle poured into a Westmalle Trappist chalice. Very effervescent orange with no head. Aroma is high alcohol and bubblegum. Flavor is high on malt and candy sugar, but the subtle bitterness balances it nicely. A very drinkable big beer. A nice American example of a Belgian Tripel.

Headbanger (4022) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2016
22oz bottle 4/7/16 (Spec’s Wine-Austin)-40° in Trappist Glass-Pours a dark murky golden with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, Belgiany, and fruity. Taste of the same with a bit of alcohol coming in. This medium bodied brew is not bad, not the best fbut not the worst.

SDalkoholic (2444) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle from KNB: Aroma of deep caramelized malts while some scents of spiced yeast and a heavy whiff of alcohol. The flavor is instantly bitter and taste salty but then sweetens up in the finish. The taste of the malts and Belgian yeast has diminished and lost flavor and it is obvious this is years old bottles. Some good things about this beer is that it held up the carbonation quite well and leaves but is still barely noticeable while also having a high dosage of 9.5% ABV to back the beer up. Pity that I never saw this anywhere else and that I was duped into buying such an old bottle.

BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Big Belgian Tripel with tons of Belgian characters. The yeast and malt flavors are very dry and have fruity esters. This as a very good beer.

Bottle. The beer here is not bad but it’s not great either. It’s rather obvious this was just for marketing purpose and not an attempt to make a great beer. The beer was just an average Belgian Tripel.
