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

BeerdedDave (629) - - OCT 7, 2014
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

Aroma of oak, bourbon and Belgian yeast. Flavor is a not sweet and very rich with hints of raisins and caramel. Perfectly balanced!

944play (365) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
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.

March 2014 bottling. Pours a hazy yellow with a medium sized white sudsy head. Aroma of sweet malts, wood, bourbon, sugar, caramel. Taste follows the nose with some vanilla in it. Medium body, solid carb, and decent bitterness mixed with the sweetness. Overall decent brew.
