04/23/14 On tap. Rich texture. Unctuous.. Bananas galore. If you want to know & understand dryness in a beer this is exactly the opposite. (brere's noyes say putting it by for a while will add some dyness. Yeah, like I can keep my hands of something like tihs.)

The sweet comes & goes even in the same sip. Like a lava lamp on the tongue. First this way, then that, but ever so fluid. Charming...& powerful as all get out. At 9.3%, no wonder them monks be merry.

Dark yellow with a rich head that lasts throughout the drinking process. Very crisp and fresh. No single flavor stands out, or so I felt, but, by and large, it tasted really good. By far the beer's best attribute is its feeling in one's mouth. It feels very creamy, but not too creamy, not too much like cough syrup or something. It drives that fine line between too heavy and too smooth perfectly. The taste is consistently good, with a mellow spiciness. A lot of sweetness. Heartily enjoyed.

Appearance - Looks like a classic Tripel.
Smell - Smells I think quite sweet. Maybe too sweet for my taste.
Taste - Taste is similar to smell and I do think it is too sweet for my taste.
Mouthfeel - Well carbonated and crisp.
Overall - Just too sweet for my taste. Seems to be well made.
