birrabona (221) - - JAN 27, 2013
Triple hot but not enough bitter for me. Strong and difficult to drink. Amber copper. Raisin and citrus. Complexe mix of belgian sugars. Not so plaisant.

imdownthepub (13872) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Bottled, 330ml aged 4yrs from BeerMerchants of Kent. Amber with thin white head. This proved to be quite a full on beer, the hops had amalgamated into the malts giving a rich, fruity character, hints of Belgian yeasts, a touch resinous. The alcohol is still quite dominating. Decent.

Pours golden yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is strong yeasty and grassy hoppy. Taste has strong yeast notes, grassy hops and some sweet caramel.

JPDIPSO (6002) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 3, 2017
Hazy dark amber color, with a larger foamy, off-white head. Aromas of caramel, light toasted malt, candi, and undertones of fruit and floral. Sweet malt and light citric notes. Light fruit and alcohol weave in and about. Light, bubbly feel. Strong tripel. 7/14

caesar (6858) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2017
Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, BB 28/04/18, 33 cl sample. Clear golden to orange color, medium frothy head. Aroma of soapy and flowery hops, some mashed apples and a bit flowery and spicy hop. Lets say, a typical Belgian alcohol bomb. Soft bitterness, sweet mashed apples and a healthy dose of alcohol. Boring stuff, and the triple hops are nowhere to be found. Belgium does it again.

Stuedmaster (351) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 18, 2017
750 ml bottle from Pacific Liquor. Probably the best thing about this beer is the appearance, which is dark orange/amber with a nice white head that retains and leaves lacing. Slight aroma of caramel,plum, brown sugar...this may be an old bottle, the dry hopping is not evident in the aroma. Taste is mostly sweet, plum and dark cherry, light bitter, soft mouthfeel and soft carbonation, creamy texture. Has a somewhat metallic, chemical flavor, strong alcohol presence, hot on the tongue. Would not repeat.

tanel025 (53) - ESTONIA - JAN 14, 2017
Lacks of aroma. Taste: rich, sweet, caramel, malt. Foeam taste is good. Liquid taste has also some bitterness, but hidden by the sweetness. Alcohol excellently hidden. Palate: first smooth, but later on, theres some spice I was waiting for! Would like to get more spice and sharpness at aftertaste. Overall very drinkable strong ale but slightly lacks of character and aroma.
