Happy Rooster for brunch

December 29th, 2007. Brunch in Philly (pre-game for killer mussels and beers at Monk's). What a cool place! Swanky but not corny. Snazzy, really. No beers on tap, but a few good selections in bottles. The food was good and the music really set the mood in a dancy, jazzy, rocky, loungy kind of way. Highly recommended.

Stoudt's Triple Boc:

Similar to other American craft versions of the Belgian Tripel; Victory's Golden Monkey and River Horse's Tripel Horse come to mind. Most closely resembling Weyerbacher's Merry Monks Ale, the Stoudt's Triple Boc is a lovely rendition. The American craft brewers in this area have really captured the Belgian tradition and made it their own.

Stoudt's never disappoints, of course, and this Triple Boc is no exception. The nose is just a bit floral, and the first taste is a treat. the sweetness doesn't go crazy but it does equal the warming qualities of a good tripel on a chilly day. Is it a bit oily? Yes. Is it a boost for those who like a little kick to their beer experience? Yes. Is it dandy? Yes. A winner in my book.
