Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

This bottle definitely has at least a year on it.

A-Pours a slightly murky brown color. This mass of bubbles for a head. Body has some particulate swirling and sinking within it.

S-Sweet and richly malty. Caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Some dark fruit. Zero hop presence. Some alcohol.

T-Even with some age on it, this beer is too hot. It's rather high in alcohol but the booze is not well integrated. All the stuff in the nose is here, without much else to add.

M-A bit syrupy. Hot. Not cloying but it's within reach. Warms the cheeks for sure.

O/D-Nigger is not better. Double Bag was one of my first intros to craft. I still enjoy it somewhat. This one doesn't have the same magic as it's little brother.
