Pours a light golden/copper color with a large head and good amount of lacing. Aroma has hints of cloves (maybe something else) and the slightest amount of citrus. Very buttery flavor with hints of bourbon and fruits. Strong alcohol taste through-out.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Bottled Dec ’04. Pours light copper color with a huge white head. Aroma is slightly yeasty and big on bourbon and oak. Malty flavor with doughy notes. Fruity and sweet with a touch of bourbon flavor as well. The finish is... Can you say... A-L-C-O-H-O-L?

Starts life as a triple then is aged in Oak Bourbon barrels. Pours a clear light amber color with a smallish head but active effervescence. Light aroma of crystalized malts and wood. The bourbon soaked oak comes out a bit too strongly in the taste but isn’t overwhelming. Excellent mouthfeel and a clean dry finish. No hint of the 11abv in flavor but after drinking the 750ml, I’m hammered!

heemer77 (5158) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 16, 2005
From the 2005 bottling. I really like the style and Allagash, but this is a disappointment. Poured a cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma from the barrels is definitely noticed with vanilla. There is also some cherries and popcorn. The taste is warming with pancakes and a slightly cheesy finish. There is also some popcorn. The alcohol provides a warming burn. This bad boy is hot. Maybe it would smooth out with a little age. Thanks Chuck.

1FastSTi (3343) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 Bottle (Feb 05 edition):Thanks Chuck. This beer pours to a hazy straw colored body with a thin white head. Excellent lacing. The aroma is strong and Belgian. Nice Belgian yeast, oak, grains. The flavor is spicy and Belgian. 7, 4, 7, 3, 15 = 3.6

Keg:Very fruity flavor that is cinnamon covered pears that have been soaked in sweet pear wine like I’ve had at sushi places. It pours to a light colored yellowish body with a nice white head and awesome lacing. Cinnamon pears is all I can think. The palate is sugary and warming. Lingering but nice. 7, 4, 8, 4, 16 = 3.9

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Transparent and clear bright yellow in color with a web cast white head. Aroma comprised of spearmint, lemons, sourdough crust and butter crème with a slight bourbon accent in the background. Nice bourbon and oak resonance at first sip, and I know I’m in love already. Lingering bourbon charm, with a delectable triple malt make-up sweetened with accents of banana peels and spiced with coriander and cloves. Nice yeasty baguette bread quality. Bourbon provides a good foundation yet still lets the elemental triple traits shine through as well. Wonderful. Thanks for sharing, MIBRomeo!
