Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bierman9 on 10-05-2008

Triple Bag is brewed in a small batch from single infusion that uses only the first runnings of the mash. The result is a brew made from only the purest part of the grains, providing a uniquely rich and dense flavor, with an aroma reminiscent of the finest dessert wines. This brew is naturally carbonated and is an example of brewing purity that is rarely experienced by those other than brewers themselves.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a brief description and it lists the abv at 9.2% abv.

Appearance: In the glass it looks dark brown with some lighter brownish tan highlights. It also seems to be a bit hazy as well. On top I got a tall loose or soapy head which slowly settles down to just a thin ring of foam at the edge of the glass.

Smell: The aroma is full, sweet and very malty. It has a deep raisin/dark dried fruity character with sweet bready notes as well.

Taste / Palate: It’s flavor is full bodied and loaded with notes of caramel and sweet raisin bread. There is a pleasant boozy warmth though out and its finnish brings only a just very slight earthy hops flavor. The feel is full, well rounded and a bit slick but not in a cloying way. Notes: Just as a side notes this beer was aged over a year in my beer cellar.
