I dove deep into the Triple scene. My first was the Westvleteren 12 that my dad sent me. From what I've heard, this was the closest readily available beer to that. I have since tried the Rochefort 6-10 and I will say that I'd take the 8 and 10 over this if I had to. The LFDM has a perfect smell (once you get past the mile high fizzy head) and its initial taste is spot on. However, this beer took my breath away from the pure alcohol finish. Still a great beer but not what I was expecting

Great beer for entertaining. To hell with wine!! Popping the cork and serving this beer with a nice meal of pork or chicken will be an experience for any guest.

The flavor is very rich and intense, maybe a bit confusing. Your taken aback but in a good way the first time you try this. As someone who eats green olives on cans of smoked fish and very much loves intense flavors, this is a gem of a beer.

After being thoroughly impressed with this beer and drinking many of them, I can say that I do not prefer this as a session beer. The strength gets too obvious after a beer or two and it is better left as a novelty for me, like I mentioned, being served with meals for special occasions

I hear the same things about this beer from anyone who has tried this beer, they cant believe its %9. It is rare to have people who do not usually like the taste of beer in general appreciating a %9 beer! I think it is the licorice that transforms the strong alcohol note into a spicy one, I perceive the same thing with sambuca or ouzo.

One of my absolute favorite beers ! Refreshing with little citric or hoppy feel or taste. Pairs well with most foods, especially spicy dishes. We may have to keep Bieber following the 2014 Olympics, but I'll take that deal any day as long as we get to keep this great beer at our doorstep!
