4.65/5  rDev +25.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- This beer pours a very yeast hazed toffee color with a rather dull head....it is white in color and is more of a ring around the glass than a film.....what is there does retain well! Carbonation appears to be fine in nature and plentiful and this has modest lacing that clings to the glass before sliding back into the liquid....better than average at best.

S- Initial aromas of butterscotch, cotton candy, bubble gum, caramel, rum & butter, light toffee, heavy vanilla, and perhaps some fruitiness, such as pear and overripe banana, but I don't get the general smells that previous reviewers are sensing.....its much sweeter on the nose than I anticipated but very nice overall! Full marks in this category for sure!

T- OK!....the fruits very much show up on the palate where they lacked on the nose.....there are plenty of notes of apricot, candied apple, pineapple tartness, ripe banana, pears to name most of it, with hints of peach and/or nectarine as well. The spices used are there and are subtle in the flavors....mild notes of clove, cinnamon and nutmeg are noted and there is a very yeasty biscuit quality about this one! Everything is so well balanced it is unbelievable!

M/O- Medium bodied and velvety carbonation make up the texture of this one.....this is rich and succulent, and I think would make an excellent dessert brew! The other thing to note is that I had aged this one for a couple of years and the alcohol is virtually non existent....that's how well blended everything has become! This one comes highly recommended and I think gives any Belgian produced Triple a run for its' money!!

Pours a one-finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving traces lace. Hazy amber color, ton of yeast left in bottle. Medium-strong carbonation and medium bodied. Spicy caramel nose and flavor is similar. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.65 for a 12oz bottle from Bert's Better Beers Hooksett NH.

Nice, full bodied...subtly spiced...exquisite with cinnamon sugared rim! Thought I would try as an Xmas treat, was not disappointed...9.00% alcohol bot does not hit you over the head...flows smoothly to send you into a sweet place! I would most definitely recommend this beer for special occasions

A - Pours slightly cloudy with a dark straw, almost orange, hue and and a quickly dissipating head

S - Fruity on the nose, mainly tropical, with mango and pineapple being the most prominent aromas along with the notes of the esters from the Belgium yeast. The spiciness that I am use to with this style was not apparent over the fruitiness of the nose.

T- The dominate tropical notes continue into the flavor of the beer with the addition of pear as well as some spicy undertones of white pepper and possibly a touch of clove. A present tartness typical of the style rounds out the finish.

M - Medium body with a lack of carbonation ends up providing an underwhelming mouthfeel for this style.

O - Overall the body and carbonation falls flat while the tropical flavor overwhelms any delightful spiciness and limits the depth of flavors I expected with this style.
