jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2006
750ml. bottle. Hazy golden/orange color with a small off white head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, wood, sweet malt and raisins. Sweet, malty flavor with notes of bourbon, vanilla, dried fruits and a warming alcoholic finish. Not a fan of bourbon, but this is a very well made beer.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2006
From a 750ml. caged cork brown bottle with pouring instructions on the lower right side of the front label and bottling date, December ’04, cases bottled, 340 and 11% ABV info in the center of front label. Made a good appearance, poured a cloudy golden hued orange with a foamy white head that settled into a fizzy, bubbly lacing, good carbonation. Had a tropical fruity and woody nose with whiffs of sweet spicy alcohol. A crisp, smooth medium bodied mouth feel, above average drinkability. Sweet tropical sour fruity with a bourbon woody character, delightfully light in it’s bourbon barrel flavor, a mild spicy hop bitterness, a subtle alcoholic warmth in the palate and a dry, sharp tropical fruity finish. This is, in my opinion, a great Tripel from Allagash, tasty and biting, a complete pleasure to drink.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2006
No head. Body is light cloudy yellow, glowing. Aroma is honey, vinous tones, some floral hops make it very nice. Taste is alcohol, lemon, bitter and grassy hops. More vinous flavors. Clean finish with subtle hints of bourbon. I was impressed.

JorisPPattyn (9242) - 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 (9504) - 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 (2539) - 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.
