Caramel, pears, honey, bourbon. I love this! Great head retention. Soft palate. Well hidden abv. Lacks the wild yeasty funk that normally turns me off of this style. One of the best beers I’ve ever had.

Light, cloudy with big, white, fluffy head. Light citrusy aroma...even a bit sour. Taste really brings out the bourbon with a hint of oak. Slightly floral as well with a mildly spicy finish.

Nice aroma of vanilla, alcohol, and light fruit. Medium mouthfeel, with the alcohol well hidden, although creating a nice warming sensation on the palate. Very nice.

Easy to get your hands on bourbon barreled aged beer. One of the first of this kind that I tasted and thought it was great until I got my hands on some of the others out there. Tastes great and will do if you are unable to land some of the heavy hitters.

Fruity ester aroma with yeast. Pretty champagne color with golden highlights. Lighter palate with good carbonation considering this has been aging for two years. It tasted like a tripel with hints of oak and bourbon. This was not as strong as I expected. Pleasing and well-crafted.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This has a lovely apple scent, like a cider, but not nearly as sugary. There is a hint of the bourbon just behind it. There is a thin but heavy white head that does not leave much on the glass. The brew is a cloudy yellow, again similar to apple cider. The taste is hearty and somewhat sweet, but not overpowering. It tastes lighter than the 11% abv would suggest, and has a dry finish. The aftertaste is light and pleasant. If someone were to give this to me and not tell me the abv, I would go for several of these and find myself heavily and happily inebriated.

Aged barrel adds great flavor and character. Family enjoys as well. Excellent finish!

This beer pours beautifully. It comes into the glass with a golden honey color and about two and a half fingers of head. The taste has subtle Bourbon notes but nothing over powering. This beer is decent but not even close to being worth the price tag.

Pours a nice golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is vanilla bourbon and wood. Taste is heavy on the oak and light on the bourbon. Overall another winner from allagash.
