The Hobbit Bolg Belgian Style Tripel by Fish Tale brewing is a 9.5% ABV Belgian Tripel.

Label:
The Orc Bolg
The spawn of Azog the Defiler, Bolg, like his sire, is a giant, pale Orc. Keeper of the dungeons of Dol Guldor, Bolg takes pleasure in torture – his armor is embellished with the bones and blood of his victims. Powerfully built, this Orc is afraid of nothing and no one – that is, until he comes up against a surprising foe.

The last beer in the Lord of the Rings The Hobbit beer series. So far, the other 2 have been very good and I wanted to save this one for last as it is a Belgian Tripel. Belgian and Belgian styles are typically some of my favorite beers in the world. Some tripels are better than others, so the fact that the last one is a Belgian, this I had to try. Let us see how awesome this one is, cheers!!

Aromas:
Bananas, floral notes, stone fruit peaches, plums, apricots, cherries, peppercorns, tropical fruit pineapple, papaya, clove spice, brown sugar, caramel, flan hints, vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, rock candy and oranges.

Flavors:
Bananas, Stone fruit peaches, apricots, plum, cherries, honey, vanilla, caramel, biscuit bread, peppercorn spices, clove spices, coriander hints, tropical fruits like pineapple, papaya, sweetened condensed milk hints, flan hints, oranges, tangerine preserves, floral notes, candi sugars and rock candy.

Aftertaste:
Citrus, banana, biscuit bread, clove spice, banana, mild earthy hop bitterness and stone fruit. No alcohol in the taste, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, sipping drinkability and hazy medium to full body.

Overall:
Damn, I think this one was the best of the 3. This beer is freaking awesome and super delicious. It is very fruity and the Belgian candi sugars with the clove spice is brilliant and delicious. I would definitely get this one but also get the other ones especially if you wanna try the whole collection. Nevertheless, of the 3, this one is my favorite.

Anime Corner:
Sylvanas windrunner and dark elf from World of Warcraft were used in this pairing to pair with the Fantasy aspect of the Hobbit Series which pairs with the World of Warcraft. Also, the grey windrunner’s evil stare is like the evil star of Bolg and just to add everything to even make more of a better pairing, the armies behind are like the dark armies in the Lord of the Rings. Win-Win!
