Draft at Quintessence. Sweet bourbon like nose without any beer characteristics in the aroma. Mildly hazy golden blonde with a huge off-white frothy head. Too much bourbon in this. Tastes like mellow JB, but I cannot taste any beer besides the overwhelming Jim Beam. You could accomlpish the same results if you barrel aged busch light...

Clear amber body with light white head. Aroma has caramel, light bourbon notes too. Taste is light caramel sweetness, bourbon bitterness with long lasting in the after taste. Pretty balanced on the wood. Body is full, light carbonation.

Jimsal27 (205) - New York, USA - MAY 7, 2014
I thought this beer was going to be strong and aggressive. It was really smooth. Malt, bourbon, vanilla flavors all present none standing out but together they outstanding. Excellent.

aleigator (174) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2014
Honey copper color, with a fluffy big head. Aromas of spice, yeast, bourbon and wood. Buttery malts, caramel, hints of spice and warming bourbon, evolving slowly on the palate in a very pleasant way. Also a wooden note comes up, body by itself isn’t too huge, despite the unique mix of flavors. That leaves some space for mild belgium yeast, to smooth out the mouthfeel. Long yeast finish, with an underlying touch of bourbon.

zizzybalubba (1380) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2014
750 mL bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA (bottled February 7, 2014). Yellowish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of light citrus, Belgian candi sugar, and a hint of oak. The bourbon barrel aging lends an extra layer of complexity as the vanilla and oak share the stage with the orange peel and sweetness reserved for the base tripel beer. The finish provides warmth from both the high ABV as well as the flavors. Pricey, but a great beer.
