Dark yellow colour. Great aroma from coconut, vanilla and bourbon. The bourbon is almost overwhelming but adds just more greatness. Good, malty flavour profile with oak and whiskey, which is especially noticed not before finish.

Hazy orange with a small, white head.
Oak, vanilla and some coconut in both aroma and flavour.
Pretty dry and sweet with peppery notes.

Bottle, thanks Marsiblursi. Hazy golden, medium white head. Fruity malt aroma with woddy notes and coconut. Yeasty and a bit spicy, with notes of vanilla. Medium bodied, quite smooth, but with a lively carbonation. Very well balanced. A very interesting tripel.

Bottle(thanx to Marsiblursi) Hazy yellow colour, medium creamy head. Aroma is dominated of fruits: Orange, a bit sour/Citron, reminds med of a Cantilon in the aroma "Picture", that´s a compliment to the brewer! Flavor is Sparkling, viny,sour, and complex flavor, but has lots of fruits in it.Nice fuol body, and a long nice finish. Thake a bow folks! for the brewer!!

I must be a little vague here...tastes like an Abbey tripel with bourbon in it. Aroma of vanilla and yeast. Pour was a medium to dark brown with no head. Tastes like a tripel with an alcohol burn of boubon and wood and malt in the back. Hard to put in words after you split 2 bottles of this with a friend, but there you go.

August 2006 bottling...Big bourbon taste, mouthfeel somewhat less than fizzy, this one is a lot like the Odyssey, only not as dark and rich. Flavors of vanilla and wood, some apricot. Overall not bad, I may re-rate on a later date.

These notes apply to the Jim Beam bourbon barrel version. 750 at the Seattle International Beerfest. Smells bourbony without a doubt, but there’s sweet caramel and candi there too. The bourbon settles out after it’s been open for a few minutes. Cloudy orange/light amber pour. Thin off-white head. Medium, somewhat oily body, lightish carb. Bits of hay, lemon, and pear on the mid-palate. Tangy, sugary cling with oxidized apples on the finish.

[75 cl corked bottle] Pale, hazy orange colour. Thick, creamy head. Strong bourbon vanilla aroma. Flavour is......well...like a typical Belgian Abbey Tripel aged in bourbon barrels; fruity and yeasty with strong bourbon vanilla character. Well crafted, sure, but I really don’t like bourbon.

Sampled most recently on draft at Capone’s (Norristown, PA) during the Allagash promo on 6/19/07. Hazy yellow, with a moderate sized off-white head. Complex aroma, fruit, oak, whisky, and yeast most notable. The wood aging adds some interesting flavors, like tropical fruit, whiskey, oak, alcohol, and yeast. Delicious beer, but I think the alcohol overwhelms the other more delicate flavors.
