here's my2 cent review(for the baltic porter)....

L-nce dark dark red caramel thing
S-smells like bong water and ghanja mix and i am not kidding (hopefully has the same effect)
T-doesnt taste like a trippel.. spicy malty didn't taste any pumpkin..it's growing on me some anyway
F-Mouth feel is thick and smooth it really shines here
O-not sure if i love it or hate it but it is unique and worth a try if you like adjunct beers

the above review is for the baltic porter he said....i got them mixed up...so sue me even though i am apologizing profusely.

Appearance: Very slight haze on a dark yellow/gold color. Head is bright-white and creamy. Decent retention leaves a small collar and faint wisps of a cap. Moderate carbonation pulls throughout.

Smell: Pumpkin spice bubblegum. Layers of clove and nutmeg with a general pepper spiciness. Some hints of real pumpkin in there. Yeast is potent with a big estery push (see the bubblegum above). A bit sweet with something like allspice or even cardamom. Mostly pale malts with a touch of caramel thrown in for good measure. Candy and pumpkin bread. Canned pumpkin. A hint of hopping, mostly floral/grassy. Slight biscuity note as well. Pumpkin jumps a bit as it warms, but it's definitely Belgian-style first.

Taste: A blend of Belgian and fall spice. Clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, pepper, the gang's all here. Touches of bubbelgum on the finish. Light malt backbone is a bit sweeter than the nose indicated, but it helps. Cardamom. Squashy pumpkin lingers in the back. Canned pumpkin sweetness up front. Some grassy and floral notes. Spice levels are a bit high overall. A hint of buttery pie crust with some fruity esters. Belgian yeast is assertive and only becomes more so as it warms. Spicy pie.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate to slightly above carbonation. Nice crisp snap on a slightly dry finish.

Overall: It's all about the he said she said...

Spice profile completely dominates this beer to the point that it's distracting. A lot of stuff going on with a nice, almost clean finish. It's a good take on the style, but leaves something to be desired in the long run.

Sampled on 10/4/14 at annual pumpkin tasting party, reviewed from notes:

Poured from can into tasting glass

Much like the Baltic Porter that was found in the four pack with this can...a great offering from two solid breweries. A great entry in the triple category. But, again, the addition of pumpkin really didn't contribute much of anything in this brew.

Great effervescent, yeasty floral and fruity aromas and tastes...but where is the pumpkin? ELYSIAN, WHERE IS THE PUMPKIN? Come on, you guys are one of the best when it comes to pumpkin beers. Give me something here.

A great tripel with a lack of pumpkin taste that loses points but still stays strong as being to true to its overall style.
