1.65/5 rDev -56.6%
I was expecting a little more from this, tastes like other triples. Has a dark orange color with almost no head, smells of raisins. Tastes like a barley wine, grapes and raisin with a lingering sweetness. Little carbonation and medium bodied, slightly warming from the high alcohol content. Drinks rather easy though.
Don't let the score I gave fool you, it was good, but I just can't see myself having more than one at a time

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.
Pours dark brown, very little foam. Nutty. Candi sugar nose. Sweet. Syrup too. Strong astringent taste, puckering. Really boozy. Woody. Harsh aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel. Hearty.
Yuck. Frankly, quite hard to drink. And high ABV kicks you around for your trouble. Not my thing.

Pours a dark brown with a thin, patchy cocoa head. Minimal lacing on the side of my snifter glass. The smell seems a little watered down for the style. Cinnamon, nutmeg, spice, alcohol, and malt. Very sweet smelling, and not enough meat in the smell. Taste is the same. Just not a lot happening compared to the best in style. The taste is very nutty, and almost tastes like a spiked iced tea. Hmmm.. Feel is medium, with below average carbonation and a alcohol heat aftertaste. The whole beer just seems a little 'off'. Overall, this is a fairly mediocre example of the style... I'll probably not look for this again. Cheers.

Poured a nice deep amber, just a bit to opaque to see anything through the beer. Slightly rich and sweet aroma. Things change in the taste. All I get is malt, and almost sickeningly sweet malt at that, which finishes with a slightly bitter-sweet note. The whole beer lasts a lot longer on the tongue than you'd expect.

Draught: This one pours a somewhat ruby tinged mahogany. There was almost no head and lacing. I was not quite sure what to make of the aroma. There was a sweetness to it, but it lacked any kind of caramel, toffee of fruits that you might expect with a beer like this. It smelled a bit astringent. There was not a lot of sweetness to the taste. In fact, it had a very dry finish. A bit of alcohol to the taste, maybe some fruits and caramel, maybe a bit woody. I do not think I will be drinking this one again. It just was not that good.

2.95/5 rDev -22.4%
A - poured a clear deep red/brown, no head, slight rim of bubbles around edges
S - malts, smells of grapes
T - tastes slightly boozy, a bit fruity (plum/grapes), malty
M - a very dry ale. slightly tart, smooth feeling on the roof
O - i had heard good things of double bag so i didn't think twice when i saw triple bag for growler fills. i'm a bit disappointed honestly. the abv% is quite honestly the only reason i could understand drinking this one. there's not much there in flavors, smell, or even the pour. maybe this is better with aging. i would probably pick up a bottle to store for year or so, but never again in growler/tap.

3.19/5 rDev -16.1%
A: Deep ruby-burgundy with a medium sense of effervesce. The topping is thin with a tannish-bronze skim coating that quickly dissipates.
S: The abv% of 9.2 is very well hidden on the nose. Unfortunately so is much of everything else. Toasty cereal grains with dry apple peels and not much aromatically in terms of strength.
T: Flavor of fruity apple-dry caramel and sweet toasted grains. Dry touch of alcohol is more evident especially upon warming. Lingering dry apple alcohol notes and dry cinnamon.
M: Malty and lush mouthful, thick and viscose with a quiet demeanor of carbonation.
O: Overall the booziness takes over at times and becomes distracting. Im not one to shy away from big boozy beers, only when they inhibit most of the flavor aspects and complexity. Drinkability is limited average excitiment, meh. To be fair im a huge fan of their double bag which i believe rated b+ and really enjoyed and think it is a much better tuned beer in terms of balance and malt profile. bigger isnt always bigger in this case.
