Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2013
A dark brown colored beer, with a thick foamy beige ead. The aroma of dark malts with red fruits and malts. The taste of dark fruits, notes of caramel, some alcohol. The aftertaste of sweet dark fruits, alcohol and a little bitter.

Flocci (35) - BELGIUM - APR 29, 2013
Dark brown with reddish (Bordeaux) notes. Creamy pale brown head that dwindles to a beige film on the beer. Caramel, coffee, malt, some orange zest in the nose. Faintly sweet and bitter, alcohol bite that is hardly masked. Bitter finish where the warmth of the alcohol rolls back on. Creamy feel, good carbonation, tingly. All in all nice, maybe not thrilling, but nice.

RexTalionis (3608) - FINLAND - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a frothy beige head. Sweet darker fruits, hints of dough and light peppery spicy notes in aroma, some dark chocolate is there as well with a little bit of vanilla. Lovely. Dark fruits as raisins and dadels in taste. Some slightly vinous notes with hints of bready malts as well in taste. A bit dry. Light nuttyness in flavor too. No sign of alcohol in finish. Slightly sweet, some coffee and licorice in aftertaste. Not your usual tripel and feels more like a seasonal belgian strong ale. Quite delicious over all.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2012
Stubby bottle brought home from the pub in Hoegaarden. Pours coffee brown with very little in the way of head. Sweet, malty flavour. Somewhat oily mouthfeel with a decent burn from the 10 % alc, but at the same time a watery finish. Sweet, but not much else. Disappointing.
