4.5/5  rDev +21.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Color- dark brown. Medium to full mocha head.

Aroma- fruitcake spicy and sweet with rum raisin vanilla hints.

Taste- A complicated beauty! Starts rich with caramel and toffee notes transitioning with mild vanilla hints (reminiscent of vanilla hints from barrel aging) finishing with rich rum raisin cake notes. Sublime. Triporteur is french for a cargo bicycle. I'd ride for this fine Belgian ale any day!

Purchased from Whole Foods in Austin. Tasted on 3/8/2014.

Poured from 750 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass).

I had this both in the bottle and on tap and I like the bottled version better. Both versions have a light malt nose scented with chocolate and faint spices.
The beer rolls over the tongue with creamy, fruity sugar sweetness seasoned with a touch of fig and a hint of cola. The tap version finishes sticky sweet. The higher carbonation of the bottled version cuts and tempers the sweetness making for a better beer.

Appearance is dark and opaque with a large tan head which fades slowly. leaving fair amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma is soft and malty with a slight toasted note. No hop aroma or other aromas noted. Flavor is malty with subtle toasted malt background. No hop, fruit, or other flavors noted. Slightly sweet on the back of the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall impression: Not as complex as I had hoped. Overall it was very simple and straightforward. And there's nothing wrong with that. A good beer for sitting by the fire with friends after a day outside on the slopes.
