look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: looks beautifully violent. A dark triple indeed. Very thin head throughout, but a really gorgeous look regardless.

Smell: dark and complex fruit aroma. The front present a bright feeling but then the strong yeast presence pulls it down in a beautiful direction. Wonderful, truly wonderful.

Taste: the front is a very smooth yeast presence then the dark fruits found in the smell explode. The palette dances with flavors of too many fruits to name. Triples do not get much better then this. The aftertaste is a round dryness that is sweet over offensive.

Mouthfeel: everything you would expect after the smell and taste. Leaves a strong dryness but is pleasant for the drinker.

Overall: one of the better triples I've had. More on the aggressive side then an easy drinker but forces you to love it. Definitely an elite brew
