Beer Review, Brasserie des Rocs Triple Imperiale

Brasserie des Rocs Triple Imperiale (bottle)
10.0% ABV

Appearance: Dark coloration, amber-brown, with a thick off-white head that dissipates slowly. Significant sediment in the glass. 4.5/5

Smell: Very yeasty, strong notes of rich nuttiness. Somewhat bready, with a strong Belgian funk. Rich, complex, inviting. 5.0/5

Taste: Dark maltiness, nutty, almost chocolatey in flavor. Perhaps a touch of caramel? On the back-end a nice yeast character, rich with the best of Belgium. A slight tarty fruitiness on the finish, notes of cherries. Slightly dry on the aftertaste. Delicious. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Heavy body, coating the palate well. No significant hoppiness or carbonation. Very chewy as one gets to the bottom of the bottle where the yeast resides. 4.0/5

Drinkability: A very drinkable, delicious Belgian Ale. Worth a try by anyone who loves a good Belgian. 4.5/5

Overall: 4.55/5
