The aroma wasn’t much. I definitely picked up a lot of the sweetness. However it wasn’t until I tasted it that I realized how complex the pantheon of flavors truly is: the undertones of chocolate and nuts and coffee, combined with the smokiness of bourbon makes for a lovely sipping beer. I only wonder if the taste would be improved had the beer aged in a barrel of superior bourbon as opposed to Jim Beam

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
bottled Dec 2011 - drank April 2012; cloudy gold-orange color; musty, funky aroma; a fantastic Belgian inspired beer; spicy, dry, and a bit fruity with very subtle hints of oak and bourbon; very complex and extremely smooth - especially for a beer that weighs in at 11%abv; a warn, dry finish - similar to the finish on a fine bourbon

Love how the barrel contributes so much to this Belgian triple. It’s devine, in every sense of the meaning.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Kennedy’s SF. Hazy deep yellow with moderate fine foam and crazy lacing. Sweet maple and amaretto nearly eclipses sharper citrus and green herb. Flavors tend more yeast-driven than the barrel-derived aromas, with esters plumbing the banana, tropical, and bubble gum depths. Sweet but thin, and profoundly intoxicating.
