3.4/5 rDev -9.3%
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.

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.

The absolute, unrelenting eradication of my back inventory continues. I just want to return to The CANQuest (TM), but the bottles glare at me for ignoring them. This one came from The Fridge and went into my fridge.
From the bottle: "Hell of an ale brewed with home roasted malt"; "Unfiltered ale with flavor evolution".
Holy Hell! I popped the cap and almost immediately, I got foam coming up the neck and quickly running down the side of the bottle. I placed the bottle inside the glass until I could regroup. I guess that I am lucky that it was not an outright gusher! I can also read, so I utilized a VERY gentle pour and only filled about a quarter of the glass before allowing it to rest. As you may imagine, I ended up with two fingers of frothy, rocky, light-tan head that off-gassed, popped and fizzed its way out of existence. Color was a medium-brown (SRM = > 27, < 34) with ruby highlights. Nose was another raucous melange! I got dried, dark fruits, coffee, dark chocolate, mustiness and even vinousness off of this one. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, but quite effervescent. The roasted malt was the clear driver in this beer. It tasted of coffee and dark chocolate in the mouth, initially, but warming, it took on a dried, dark fruit aspect. I kept thinking of a Cadbury Fruit & Nut Bar, sans the nuttiness. Finish was semi-dry, with the yeast really having done their job, but at the same time, leaving enough sweetness so as not to make it totally dry. This had a vinousness that was interesting, but kind of outside of my scope. If I were to buy another bottle, I might allow it to age for a while.

Served in a tulip glass at Bibgy's Pour House.
"Scooter from Hell". Gotta love it, especially with that stated ABV... Anyway, this stuff pours a very dark sienna topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises toasted rye bread, light chocolate, light clove, brown sugar, and a pinch of black pepper. The taste brings in more of the same, with the spices melding very well with the cocoa, and everything fading into a toast haze. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a nice Belgian dark, one that balances its spice load with its grains' roastiness pretty well.
