Notes / Commercial Description:
Triple Bag is brewed in a small batch from single infusion that uses only the first runnings of the mash. The result is a brew made from only the purest part of the grains, providing a uniquely rich and dense flavor, with an aroma reminiscent of the finest dessert wines. This brew is naturally carbonated and is an example of brewing purity that is rarely experienced by those other than brewers themselves.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Purchased at Wakefield Liquors in Wakefield, RI.

A- Dark brown-amber, clear body with a cream colored, 1.5" head that reduces to a thin ring. Could have had more retention and lacing.

S- Mostly lightly toasted malt, wine, slightly sour. Very malty.

T- Upfront, this brew has a huge malt-bomb sweetness that finishes with a peppery, slightly hoppy aftertaste. Good balance for the ABV with a slight warming alcohol feel.

M- Medium-low carbonation, medium-heavy body.

Overall not one of my favorites, but definitely worth a try. Not as drinkable as the double bag, but expected for the ABV. You'll be feeling good after a couple of these.

This hearty craft opens in a vanilla froth, which immediately sinks into a flimsy lace strip atop a dark foreboding body. The nose here is a busy place, with much to and froing going on; there are subtle hints of grspe, grass and walnut. A patient quaff should result in a swift wift of red wine. This said, the palate is confused as this is a complex elixir that lays out a steady barrage of plum, oak, malt and spice.

At 53 IBUs, this is no hop bomb; there is a hearty suppliment of honey and malt to bring out a smooth chewiness; all of this, to make for a unique quaff at the end of a tiresome day. One of these should do it.
