COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hints of rum, dates and figs compliment the fruity esters in this strong Belgian style ale. Locally made dark candi syrup helps keep the body surprisingly light in this big beer worthy of rumination.

Borefts Beer Festival 5. Day 2. Thanks to Colin for this bottle. Hazy amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little soft and airy. Fine carbonation. Light, dry creamy malt. Dried fruits. Finishes dry and soft. It’s standard stuff but quite drinkable.

fiulijn (20221) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark mahogany color, with creamy head. It has a mild aroma of toasted nuts. Smooth mouthfeel, good body strength, strong flavor of dark caramel, with some residual sweetness, and strong bitterness; traces of chocolate and roasted nuts too. They could have extracted more malt flavor; and the yeast gives a dusty impression instead of a classic Belgian spiciness; also, in the final there is some alcohol perception.
Solid but not impressive.

Theydon_Bois (18701) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle at Borefts ’13, I picked this up from the airside duty free shop at SEATAC, 28/09/13. Lightly hazed amber with a thin off white head. Nose is bready, dark fruit, yeasty notes, light spice. Taste comprises toffee, dark fruits, dates, prunes, sugar, light yeast esters. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, sweet finale. So so affair, drinkable but not one I’d return to.

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
Has an amber-brown colour. Bubbly head. Crackery, lightly toasty nose. So it looks and smells nothing like a tripel. Sweet, toasty, just a light ester note. This has no particular Belgian influence, but when you adjust to the fact that you’re drinking a strong Brown Ale, you realize it’s pretty good at that.

mcberko (16609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2011
Sampled on tap at SIB, pours deep dark red with a medium beige head. Aroma of candied sugar, caramel and dark fruits. Flavour is cloyingly sweet, with a little wood, heaps of caramel and candied sugar. The intense sweetness detracts from what would otherwise be a well-done Belgian-style.
