Poured a nice copper color with some very nice head and a bit of decent lacing. Decent scent, light and sweet, with some cherry aromas to round it out; nothing great, nothing bad. Good flavors, with a huge malt sweetness and hints of fruit and nuts; this will be good after aging, but still has quite a bit of alcohol flavors. Went down a bit rough and hot, but not entirely bad.
On tap at Tomlinson Tap Room.

Beer was poured from a growler that was purchased on 10/15/11. The beer poured from the growler as a copper orange. The aroma immediately tells drinkers it is a triple. Alcohol and bitter fruits tickle the nose. With an initial aroma that is somewhat mustardy the senses tingle. In the initial taste is a potent sweet and sour finish. Hints of banana and cinnamon dance across the tongue. Hidden in the taste is a sour apple flavor. With a great deal of texture, the feel warms the chest. This warns the drinker, high alcohol content.

Figure 8 is an underrated brewery in NWI, but this one is definitely a winner.
