Tonight I'm drinking Triple Exultation, an old ale brewed by Eel River Brewing Company in Scotia, California. As usual, beers by this brewery are organic. The label art has what appears to be a very heavy door knocker as its centerpiece.
Fruity, boozy, sweet caramel aroma. Big alcohol up front, extremely sweet with massive candy and sugar flavors. Mango, pineapple and orange are what the 9.7% alcohol is matched with in the beginning. Definitely like drinking a "Jack and Fruit" type cocktail! There are also some sweet caramel flavors, but the sweet is eventually attacked by a bitter component, which drastically thins out the syrupy beginnings. A bit of a roller coaster! Now I can appreciate this beer for what it is, but it ain't my favorite style and it's not even my favorite of the style. Much too boozy for me. I let it warm up... still boozy, though perhaps a little of that edge was taken off.
