From my tasting notes: This was a great Tripel that kicked everything off with the signature Belgian yeast aroma and substantial off-white head. The Asylum was a big impressive Tripel with hints of sweet candi sugar, malt, and even a bit of vanilla. It was a bit on the sweet side, but I was really enjoying this one and it went down fast and smooth.

A: cloudy orange-amber, no appreciable head in a snifter, glass is too small to really show lacing but in a larger glass it would probably be a fine lattice
S: sweet, candy, bread
T: candy, sugar, herbs, malt, the 11% alcohol pokes through with some astringency
M: light, syrupy
O: one really has to be looking for an astringent spiced candy. I found it too sweet, bordering on cloying, and heavy-handed.

This was simply a great beer. The flavor was smooth, and sort of sweet. The sweetness was not over powering. There was a light malt flavor.

The pour left a small head, that did not hold very long. Surprisingly this brew did not allow the strong alcohol level overpower the flavor.

I am new to Triples, and this was a good entry in my book.
