Wow.....this is quite a beer. It really picks up the flavor from the barrel. I took a shot of single Barrel J.D. and added it to the brew.....that was a fun night.

Brickskeller, Russian River / Allagash Lovefest. Hazy, medium golden appearance; white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Tart, sour-mash aroma; toasty vanilla and woodsy notes. Very alcoholic, sour-mash mouthfeel: overly whiskey-based, unbalanced; overburdened by the barrel aging. Finish is better-balanced: sour-mash, yeasty, and light citrus.

Pours cloudy gold with a decent white head. Aroma of woody liquor. Tastes almost exactly like bourbon. Very one dimensional. Mouthfeel is very thick, and as such it is hard to consume in large quantities. Not bad, but Iím not really a bourbon fan.

SDalkoholic (2331) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 21, 2007
A strong and bold nose that is woody with alcohol. A strange looking appearance of a murky offset orange/ burnt yellow. Small layer of film develops on top but will dissipate in a few moments time. The inital flavor is a very thin line between sweetness and sourness. Whiskey barrel resin rubs off all over this abby dubbel and allows the high level off alcohol present to be masked behind the characteristic flavors of bourbon, oak wood, vanilla and cigar tobacco. Such a potent ale i thought upon my first sip it was to different for me to like but after repeated sips this is a true gem. Definetely will put some hair on your chest.

Pours yellow with no head. Weak looking in my opinion. Aroma is bourbon. Taste is bourbon. Way too overdone. This beer is a weak tripel with a shot of Jim Beam pretty much.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2007
2006 poured an orange-amber hue with a thick white head which did fade fast. A rich aroma of oak, alcohol notes, and some spice notes. Body seemed lightly carbonatedm but in a good way. Flavor was estery at first with some fruit notes but mixed with the bourbon finsihed with a sweet finish. Alcohol had a nice warming presence in the beer.

This is the 2006 version... Appears a hazy, light orange toned gold with a fluffy, 2 finger white head that slowly fades out. Lots of sticky lacing is left around the glass. Small pockets of CO2 quickly rise to the top. Smell is of tropical fruit salad, leather, peach, oaky vanilla, dough, caramel, and a nice bourbon aroma that is excellent to inhale. There is a warmness found in the aroma but not a hot boozy burn as I seem to remember from the 2004 version. Taste is of the mentioned aromas and it seems to meld together nicely. This is one of the few Bourbon Barrel Tripels Iíve had and I think the peachy, apricot, tropical, doughyness really compliments the bourbony caramel, and vanilla warmness. Mouthfeel is slightly sweet up front with a smooth warming vanilla and spice flow across the palate. Finishes semi dry with bourbon and oak resonating and making me lick my lips awaiting the next sip.

This beer has a dense cloudy appearance with a pale orange caramel color. It ours with a frothy white foam which quickly dissipates. The aroma is dominated by charred oak with possible notes of resin, leather, and clove. It has a full body-- a creamy, thick feel with soft carbonation. The initial flavor is that of a trippel. Itís lightly bitter and almost salty. It has a spicy finish of bourbon, black pepper and alcohol. This is basically a trippel that is treated with the charred oak flavor of bourbon. Quite unique.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden, coppery color with minimal beige colored head that rests out. Aroma is bourbon, toasted malts, oak. Flavor is caramel, peat, bourbon, oak, bourbon, slight alcohol. Palate if full bodied, medium carbonation, sweet, resinous finish. Great stuff!

this beer pours a golden orange color with a small white head. Wow this beer has quite a sweetness to it! actually it seems more vinegary than sweet I think. Itís very different. I can taste the bourbon, but it is a sweet bourbon. This is quite a unique beer! I like it though! I will be buying this one again. Cheers!
