Man. Hitting the lottery on beer picks today. Another fantastic one. Orange foggy pour from 22oz bottle at home. Vanilla and lemon aroma. Sweet honey candy and slight bourbon taste. A ton going on in this beer. So good.

"2008? pours with a nice, white, fluffy head. typical belgian aroma, but there is something more. can’t taste the oak, but it’s a very melow, yet very complex nose and flavor. I liked it quite a bit. Others were expecting more for the price. 2011 release more bourbon and oak, a little sweeter...still awesome."

Aroma: intense, bourbon, caramel, grain and bread malts. Appearance: hazy, pale gold. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: massive bourbon, intense malts expanding, caramel, bread and grains, turning light bitter in the long finish. Overall: excellent Tripel, intense bourbon finish adds the extra. Pint at the Yard House Downtown, San Diego.

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

On draft at The Cloverleaf in West Caldwell. A nice old Kentucky twist on a traditional Belgian style from Maine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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
