JorisPPattyn (8648) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2006
Pale Yellow-orange; some transparant head. Beautiful Bourbon nose, but restrainded to a very good balance with subtle spicyness and chalk. Sweet, vinous & alcoholic, malty despite the lagering, serious punch. ROB, thís is what you should’ve brought to Belgium. This is something to challenge the best of Belgium with. Powerful, burning, punch and yet not agressive MF. I’m impressed. WOW. This is by far the best I’ve had from Allagash. Despite the Bourbon influence, it is definitely complex in a layered way.

DocLock (8678) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver in Somerville, NJ. This one pours turbid dark straw/orangish gold in color with a frothy, 2-finger head. The aroma is dark fruity and very hopcitric, with some spicy cobwebby floral notes and an undercurrent of oaky bourbony fruits. Intense, complex aroma. The taste is fruity and hopcitric at first, and gets spicy and floral as it warms. The fruit and citrus remain throughout, but the bourbon element becomes more pronounced as it warms. The palate is lively and complex. This is a great beer.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2006
Sample at the 4th Boulder Strong Ale Fest. Beer pours a hazy light-to-medium gold color with a small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing head. The aroma is lightly malty with notes of toasted grain and caramel; hoppy with traces of herbs and light notes of lemon; yeasty with light notes of barnyard and horseblanet; light miscellaneous notes of banana and clove, moderate notes of spicy alcohol and heavy notes of oak. The net effect is kind of like a spicy fruitcake aroma—yum! The flavor was heaily sweet, lightly bitter with a lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. The body was full, the texture was velvety and the carbonation was lively with a moderate-to-heavy alcoholic feel in the finish.

ABUSEDGOAT (2417) - California, USA - APR 14, 2006
Hazy golden body with a moderate head. Aroma was oaked with notes of various fruits. Flavor is the same, very smooth from the oak aging... but the oak character dominates everything else. It lost a lot of its character, but you’d never guess 11% either. Good, not great.

Cloudy blond color. Both aroma and flavor have a touch of oaky and smokey vanilla; medium sweet flavor, that combines well with the barrel. Excellent.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2006
Bottle vintage 2004 9.5%. Pours hazy orange\gold with a decent sized white head. Aroma of belgian style spices, yeast, citrus, fruit, and wood (oak). Flavor is sweet, citrusy, the oak is very present in this fine brew, spicey, and smooth. Good body, Great brew.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Bottle: Golden color with some floaties and a small white head. Aroma has some yeast and fruitiness, the oak and bourbon didn’t come through untill it had warmed to near room temperature. Flavor was a little tart, there was some oak but other than a dry finish I didn’t pick up on much of a barrel character, it was sedated in comparison to other beers that really over do it.

luvcasks (178) - USA - MAR 20, 2006
Clear gold color with a puffy quickly diminishing white head. The nose is sweet with apple cider, yeast, oaky bourbon notes. The flavor is tart, nearly sour along with a delicate amount of bourbon and a satisfying dry finish. This is my first bourbon barrel aged beer. Much to my surprise I love the unique characters... The mouthfeel is sweet and rich and the finish goes on an on.....
