UPDATED: MAR 17, 2015 Had this on tap at S/S Grille. While I did not hate this beer, I did find it to be a bit overly sweet and boozy for me to truly love it. Decent though.

A richer, more complex Allagash tripel. Pours a clear light orange, little head. Nose is yeast, banana, bubble gum, honey, clove. Taste is the same, fairly sweet with a little bourbon and oak. Fairly mellow, almost soothing. Wonderful.

A decent slightly belgium style beer. Little fruity but nicely balanced with hopps and male. Had this at hub 51 in Chicago.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2015 On tap at Burial. As expected. Great tripel with tons going on but my 8oz pour was plenty. Nice hazy mostly golden but slightly orange pour with thick white head that stays put. Taste is yeasty, spice, clove, fig, raisin, with subtle bourbon. Nicely done with the barrel againg and blending -allows other flavors to come through. Smooth and somewhat slick/ buttery mouthfeel-flirting with syrupy. Sweetness lingers a bit too long. Boozy, but doesnít burn.
Maine trip- interesting to taste at taproom next to tripel. Sweetness noticeably less. Tempered nicely by Jim. Better finish than tripel. Nice and dry.

A little more orange than yellow, aroma of vanilla and banana, taste is light bourbon, woth oaky tannins contributing excellence to the dry, creamy, finish.

Spicy, Clove, vanilla aroma. Woody bourbon barrel taste, crisp champagne like head, with a light mid mouth Bourbon hit. Likely a top 10.

Pours a fairly clear, light orange color. Sweet, caramel malt, oaky, light bourbon, and a hint of a sweet tart note. Sweet, malty, Belgian yeast character, spicy phenols, vanilla, oak, and bourbon and some alcohol heat in the finish.

Draft at Mikkeller. Pours clear gold with foamy white head. Aroma of fruit, honey, bubblegum; somewhat floral, but mostly sweet and fruity. In the mouth this is thick, syrupy sweet, really overbearingly sweet/syrupy. Iím surprised -- this is hard to drink. My companion for the night is able to finish both a triple ipa and an imperial porter while Iím still staring down the last ounce of my $8.5 250ml pour, unwilling to let it go but really not looking forward to finishing it. Overall: Boozy sweet sticky beer thatís hard to drink, and not even remotely enjoyable at any point.
