Bottle. The label on the beer I tried was their new, cartoony look that displays a face with ash upon their forehead. Not sure why but it found it obnoxious. To each his own. The beer pours a clear, dark copper color with a tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, yeast, alcohol, dog food and caramel. It's taste is more complex but the flavors are mostly the same; maybe it's just deeper flavorwise. Dark fruits, dry yeast, biscotti, caramel and molasses. Body is thick and alcoholic. Soft carbonation. Triple Bock.

Perfection in a glass. Dark brown pour, very rich looking color. No light is coming through and there's nothing lighter around the edges, it's just dark brown through and through. The head forms beautifully, slowly, cascadingly. It's a tan color and foamy thick with many different sized bubbles. That head retains very well and when it does finally start to die, it leaves a thick lace behind. The appearance is all world.

Very malty nose. Chocolate and caramel malts, along with some earthy malts. Very grainy with a barleywine-like scent.

I dig the taste. Again, very malty. Chocolate and caramel are accounted for, but there's a slight scotch ale flavor. And like with the nose, it's got some taste similarities with a barleywine, just not the extreme hoppiness. Kind of like an English barleywine.

Very thick and syrupy. It's somewhat on the sweetside early on before it turns faintly bitter midsip. Almost chewy, very full bodied. Only as the beer warms does the hoppiness and alcohol begin to build. The hop profile seems to be of the Noble hop varietal. The faint bitter and alcohol warmth is on the lingering side.

To hell with double bocks, this is a trippelbock. It's super high ABV, but it's so easy to drink. Honestly, you'll sip it because it's got such a barleywine character, but it goes down much easier.

Never had a Triple Bock style. I know that's just a huge Dopplebock but fudge it. We can call it whatever we want

Super dark sugar smell with some soy and carmelized sugar. Not as sticky as i thought it would be. Booze is masterfully subdued, not invisible, but almost sessionable. Very simple though, not in the same class as a Celebrator, but really nice on a fall evening.

01/19/14 From bottle at home. Eeeek! This is a muscular brew. Big nose, big flavor & big alcohol. Coffee/Toffee/And a little Smokey. Almost chewable. Lingering. No burn. Impressionistic. Yummy!
