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.

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).
