Poured into tulip...
A: Pours a very dark chocolate brown, almost black body, off white four finger head, very creamy and thick.
S: Sweet candy malt, dried fruits, plums and grapes some bready yeast as well.
T: Heavy dried fruit plum overtone with candy malt, slight acetone and metallic feel as well, finish is bitter and slightly off it seems, almost like they tried to give it a hoppy bitter finish but it just doesn't work. A little tobacco note as well, kind of earthy. Aroma is nice, but the taste is off.
M: Medium body, smooth carbonation, dry finish but off a bit. Abv is hidden well.
D: The finish makes this one hard to get down, just needs balance in the flavor profile...

On draught at Bailey's, North III - Dark Tripel is dark brown with a creamy egg-shell head that leaves gorgeous lace rings.
Smell is very strong, lots of cured fruits and figs (I later was told this was made with sugar plums), some perfume, a touch sour.
Taste is similarly dominated by the sugar plums, acidic but not infected. Flowery, a weird sweetness but not cloying, with a nice minerality. This is very unusual, but I'm not sure how much I actually like it.
Mouthfeel is on the thicker side, but still digestible, with a nice creaminess.
Drinkability is at little tough, as there's just so much going on, not all of which I like, at least they way it comes together. Interesting experiment though, but they could have used another test batch before the commercial release IMHO...
Serving type: on-tap
