Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle, corked and caged. Poured a slighly hazy golden color with a thin white head. Aromas of spice and hay. i was expecting some oak or bourbon notes, but sure didnít find them in the aroma....nor in the taste. This just tasted like a regular triple to me, I donít get any oak or bourbon anywhere. I was a really good triple, but I was expecting some more complexity.

Bottle from PP Belgian Beer Fest. More sour on the aroma than in the flavor. The flavor was a little bitter but with nice citrus notes in the finish. Some alcohol in the finish as well. I think I liked this one better than the Interlude

Hazy, uniformly dark orange. Some very nice, soft foam foats to the top. Small bead lacing. Aromas are light, a little raisin, some oak, some butterscotch (which really comes out on the tasting). One can definitely taste the whiskey. Long, raisiny finish. Plenty of butterscotch at the end, too. Some fruit remins in this beer, but most is lost to the aging. Mellow and wholly pleasant, if a bit muddled. Good effort.

thornecb (4690) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 15, 2007
June 2006 bottle. Aged 8 months. Pours a bright golden amber into a tulip. Medium head quickly recedes to skim surface. Strong bourbon and oak aromas. Upfront sweet malt and a lasting bourbon alcohol burn. I like bourbon...I like tripels...quite an enjoyable melding of the two.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAR 14, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 Draft. Aroma was very much of hard alcohol (aged in jim beam barrels). Flavor was also dominated by the jim beam flavor, and I was disappointed that it didnít have other noticable flavors. Re-rate September 2010. Bottle from 2006. Blond pour with small white head. Aroma is like a belgian single or saison (sweet pale malt with small hints of lemony citrus), and whiskey / wood. Flavor is the same, initially sweet, then the whiskey barrel flavors of peppery alcohol and light vanilla take over in the finish.

Poured a clear gold; medium white head. Aroma and flavor had distinct bourbon characteristic; almost too much. Triple flavors were muted.

elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2007

DirtyMartini (194) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 26, 2007
pours a cloudy yellow/orange with a small head that lingers with some nice lacing. aroma was of some light yeast, some bourbon and maybe a little honey. to me, the flavor is all bourbon. very dry and easy to drink, but the flavor to me is all bourbon. im not a big tripel kinda guy, but this was very tasty.

bgburdman9 (859) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Shared by moejuck and spector. Pours a dark yellow color with a orangish hue to it and a steady white head. Aroma was a little yeasty, bourbon, very light and easy to drink I thought. Pretty dry and some alcohol coming through. The bubbles on the tongue were great in this. Very tasty beer.

i had heard of this beer thru a website and tracked it down.vintage 2006, at 11%.aged in jim beam barrels, i hoped it would filter through, unlike alot of wooded beers.first pour, very nice, nice head.immediate smell of whiskey. a sip, then WOW.this is ale? are we sure?immediate wood, earth, sweet tripel, and other notes come through followed by that famous whiskey taste. an amazing beer, one iím glad i had, would buy again and again.also the only ale my brain ever tried to tell me i needed a chaser.
