mdindy (38) - Weymouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2014
color is deep clear amber with decent yellow tinted head initially but dissipates fast. aroma is sweet with some alcohol and malts. distinctive carmal flavours with some deep malty tone and hint of alcohol in aftertaste. almost feels like a cognac, very smooth. highly recomended, would be good with a cigar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Clear deep amber with gorgeous red hues and medium off white head. Honey like malt aromas, with some caramel, toffee, fruitcake and some grass. Juicy malt flavor, lo-med bitterness, honey, dried apricot and cookies. Med body, satisfying, well rounded and yummy. Cool.

Ótima Tripel belga. Cor amarelo-palha com ótima formação de espuma e aroma remetendo frutas amarelas e especiarias, na boca corpo médio, com notas de fermento belga, pêssegos e damasco, com álcool bem inserido. Final longo e aquecedor. Ótima breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shylos (5) - - DEC 4, 2013 does not count
Light amber colour, malty aroma with hint of whisky. Malty and bitter to taste, not unpleasant but plenty of carbonation - too much for my palate. Nothing special.
