UPDATED: NOV 20, 2010 I donít yet have bourbon-barrel ennui so I have really enjoyed the two bottles (both from July 2005) Iíve had. I think Allagashís Tripel is a strong, above average example of the style - and the b-b aging doesnít compromise it for me. It actually moves it gently in the direction of a Flemish primitive, with the wood combining with the heat of the bourbon and a touch of citrus to give it a really interesting flavor that seems to bloom in the mouth. Better as it warms, this is a really strong entry from Allagash.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, tupalev, jerc, R. and the rest of the gang -- courtesy of jerc. Vintage 2005. Pours a very hazy orange with a small diminishing white head. Sweet aroma of yeast, wood, fruit, spices and bourbon. Flavour of wood, bourbon, spices, yeast and an alcohol finish with some hops thrown in. Light to medium bodied. This is really good but thereís no damn way I could drink a whole bottle of this to myself.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2006
Jercís bottle shared with a bunch of fine folks. Nice yeasty, funky malt aroma. Hint of bourbon, lots of yeast, bitter. Interesting taste that was a combo of bourbon and a Belgian Triple. Strong strong taste. yeasty. Better as it warmed. What a great sipper, lovely!!

Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, tupalev, DougShoemaker, R and others - jercís bottle. Cloudy orange with a smallish white head. Funky, peppery, heavy yeast aroma, some sour lemon and oak character, but Iíll say it again - funky. Taste is oaky (vanilla character), quite whiskey-ish, gets more whiskey character as it warms, otherwise spicy and yeasty, quite a bit of alcohol. Itís a little watery, but acidic, creamy, only lightly carbonated but the spice and yeast make it quite lively nonetheless. This is a solid brew, but the oaky/whiskey character (and the booze) gets a bit much after a while - itís still restrained compared to some bourbon-aged beers, but I am certain I couldnít drink a whole one myself.

í05 bottle...pours a light hazy copper with minimal white head. Aroma is bourbon, sweet candy, spice, and a bit of sour fruit. Flavor is quite woody and spicey...lots of actual jim beam too. If you let it warm, some interesting tangy sweetness shows itself. Mouthfeel is a bit light and highly carbonated. Very warming too.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Color is a cloudy golden orange. Decent light fluffy head of fine bubbles. Good carbonation. Thick sticky lacing. Fruity aroma with some fruit (peaches?), butterscotch and a light bourbon aroma. Nice. Flavor is light and fruity with a big alcohol kick. Quite hot. Little more butterscotch and bourbon. Nice alcohol warming. Very easy drinkng which can be very dangerous for this brew. Finish is clean and short-lived besides the alcohol. A good brew.

just tried this as the Nappi Distributors Beer Trade Show. on tap, poured by Rob Tod himself. cloudy copper brown color. aroma is powerfull. vanilla, oak, caramel and some other earthy, woodsy type aromas. taste is verry unique. vinilla, caramel , citrus, briwn sugar, toffee, and alcohol is definatly present, but only adds to the experiance. like sipping a fine burbon wiskey. soooo goood.

Bottled 2/05. Decided to enjoy after a horrific week at work (program launch). Jen and I took it to the club. Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. Lightly sweet aroma with citrus, Belgian candy, and light yeast hints. The flavor is Belgian candy sugar, maple syrup, nutty hints (like walnuts), and you do get a bourbon hint but the predominant flavor is straight alcohol in this respect. Light yeast, citrus and other fruit (orange & banana with lemon rind) and finally a light spiciness. Creamy smooth body. Very enjoyable. I think this is one of my favorite Allagash brews to date.
