Flying Dog Kerberos Tripel (Beer Review)

From Flying Dog’s website: "Named after the mythical beast that guards the gates of hell, Kerberos is a traditional Belgian-style Tripel with a dark golden color and has a sweet flavor with a dry and spicy finish. This nectar of the Gods is deceptively strong at 8.5% and is bottle conditioned for an authentic flavor."

This beer was also bought in a liquor store. It was in a Flying Dog 4-pack, and it had the lowest alcohol content of any in the pack. So you should probably expect to be seeing three more high-alcohol Flying Dog beers in the coming weeks.

This is a very good beer. The description was correct, it is deceptively strong. You don’t taste the alcohol, but you feel it by the end. It’s smooth with just the right amount of carbonation. I’ve also found out, due to familial responsibilities as I was drinking this, it’s better cold than warm. This was a very easy beer to drink, but not at all weak, as I described the Yuengling Black and Tan. Full of flavor, a nice aroma, and a golden amber color, this is definitely a good beer to try.

No can do. There was only one in the pack. You know I'd hook you up if there were more.
