A: Dark brown. Held to the light it's a deep amber/rust. Medium head. Laces well but doesn't last long.
S: Whoa. A lot there. Raisins, fruit, chocolate. Like a dessert bread about to go in the oven. As it warms, it really takes on a strong yeast nose. Some toasted toffee. Every inhalation is a little different.
T: Big malty sweetness. Chocolate and caramel. Raisins. Licorice. Rich, sweet bread. A little herbal with a bit of a brothy overtone. A little alcohol in the finish but that is offset well by both the the sweetness and breadiness.
M: Thick and creamy but not syrupy. Goes down easy.
D: For a big and super sweet beer, this is remarkably light to drink. The alcohol is hidden very well and for all its chewy breadiness it actually fairly light in body.
This reminds me more of the quads I've had than other tripels.
