cheeky here, from hell, with an abv of 666, i mean, nice guys! the beer is cool but i think its the lesser of the two, still, neat to try them side by side. this isnt all that dark, somewhat of a brown ale look to it, nice froth and excellent carbonation on the feel. the nose is more belgian yeast than dark malt, and the flavor has quite a bit of hops to it. sort of a weird in between as far as styles go, with the belgian yeast in a hoppy darker beer. unique though, and real drinkable with just a subtle dark malt flavor to go with the bittering hops and fruity ester heavy yeast. seems light with the soda pop carbonation, but something is weird with the proportions of this one, as drinkable as it is. i liked this, but probably wouldnt buy it. the from heaven version though is an outstanding belgian pale, definitely worthy of being stocked in the fridge. again, cool to have these opposing brews in succession.

I had this both in the bottle and on tap and I like the bottled version better. Both versions have a light malt nose scented with chocolate and faint spices.
The beer rolls over the tongue with creamy, fruity sugar sweetness seasoned with a touch of fig and a hint of cola. The tap version finishes sticky sweet. The higher carbonation of the bottled version cuts and tempers the sweetness making for a better beer.

A - Dark plum\rust color. Very thin foam head on this. Not much lacing at all. Has a slight sticky coating of the glass as it swirls.

S - Scents of dry sherry, dark fruits (I could smell some plums and dates). Has a spicy smell along with rich malt notes.

T - Nothing I'm too excited about. There is an initial sweetness of fruit sugars that combines with some roasted malt. I found the combination a bit harsh and not exactly smooth. Does have a complexity of flavors, but it seemed muddled.

M - Balance could use some tuning on this. Does have a medium body that is pretty comfortable to drink. Not as good with food as it is as a standalone beer to drink slowly.

O - Not a bad beer, but one I wouldn't recommend because there are better examples out there.

Bottle bought in March. Poured dark brown with golden as opposed to red undertones, and a thin layer of ivory head that remained as a scrim and laced the glass. Aromas of cherry, sawdust, a sour yeast note, a grassy herbal smell. Toasted caramel malt, red fruits, a coriander and sour note, just a bit of hop spice with little bitterness. Nice creamy feel but with a clean finish, coating but not cloying.

Pours a dark mahogany brown with a half finger dark khaki head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, rye, brown sugar, light clove and cinnamon. Flavor is heavily spice dark fruit, caramel and chocolate malt, earthy dried herbs, clove, brown sugar flavor (but it is not sweet). Finishes with more earthy summer herbs and herbal bitterness, somewhat astringent. Medium bodied with great carbonation. An interesting and earthy spice take on the style. The initial flavors are intriguing, with quite a bit of complexity. Flavors of clove, rosemary and sage, although I'm not sure those were used here. Finish is herbal, almost medicinal bitterness. I enjoyed the flavor trip, but it left a bit too astringent flavor lingering. I liked the same herbal flavors in the Heaven better, but Hell is like that, I guess. Kinda grew on me as I drank it, but it is an unusual Belgian dark.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high light tan head that died down, leaving some patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell has light to moderate aromas caramel cause with notes of chocolate.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and tastes like caramel and chocolate flavorings that would be added to coffee, with notes of coffee flavors and bits of dark fruits.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite complex for a Belgian Dark Ale and has the depth of flavors you would expect from a Belgian Strong Dark Ale, yet it is easy to drink because it doesn't have a high alcohol content.

Color- dark brown. Medium to full mocha head.

Aroma- fruitcake spicy and sweet with rum raisin vanilla hints.

Taste- A complicated beauty! Starts rich with caramel and toffee notes transitioning with mild vanilla hints (reminiscent of vanilla hints from barrel aging) finishing with rich rum raisin cake notes. Sublime. Triporteur is french for a cargo bicycle. I'd ride for this fine Belgian ale any day!

Purchased from Whole Foods in Austin. Tasted on 3/8/2014.

Poured from 750 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass).

A dark brown beer with an off white creamy head.

The smell is lightly roasted with candisugar, plums and figs. There is a light fruitiness from the yeast, a typical Belgian smell.

The taste is a caramel, chocolate and candi sugar. This reminds of chocolate and plums. The mouthfeel is a bit thin. The yeast adds a nice Belgian fruitiness.

With the coffee flavour element this tastes more a stout than a Belgian Dark Ale.
This I like, this I like a lot.
