’14 vintage bottle generously shared by Hopscotch. Dark brown pour with no real head. Caramel bourbon aromas. Smooth with lots of caramels, chocolates, oak, and bourbon. A bit thin in the body with a silky smooth wheat texture. Good mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 Tap: Labeled as "BBA Trippel Weizenbock", a wheat bock aged in Jim Beam barrels. I assume it is this entry, or close enough. Dense, opaque black-brown gradient. Muddy, not much head at all. Large mélange of tart prunes & semi-vinous red grape coated in cocoa dust, anise seed, & lathered in a healthy amount of alcohol. Moderate wood, char, & slightly musty wheat in the periphery. Semi-toasted. Red grape flavors get heavier towards the back-end, gets much more vinous & wine-like as a result, finishing with a touch of alcoholic head & wood. A little bit boozy & maybe even a touch medicinal in the finish. Decent, I expected to enjoy this a bit more, though.

Bottle shared with bytemesis. Very dark, zero head. Sweet cherry pie Bourbon and dark chocolate. Sweet flavor as well, molasses, caramel, balanced with bitter roast, coffee, wood, tobacco. Zero carbonation which I find off putting. Otherwise a good beer.

Pour on tap at the brewery, glad to have finally found this! Dark brownish black pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, coffee, dark cocoa powder, hints of earth, some earth. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, cocoa powder, roast, hints of vanilla, bourbon, oak, nice spicy notes, hints of molasses, sweet brownie batter, finishing sweet, slightly balanced by the spice. Tasty.
