Pours yellow with no head. Weak looking in my opinion. Aroma is bourbon. Taste is bourbon. Way too overdone. This beer is a weak tripel with a shot of Jim Beam pretty much.

crazyvin (1978) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2007
2006 poured an orange-amber hue with a thick white head which did fade fast. A rich aroma of oak, alcohol notes, and some spice notes. Body seemed lightly carbonatedm but in a good way. Flavor was estery at first with some fruit notes but mixed with the bourbon finsihed with a sweet finish. Alcohol had a nice warming presence in the beer.

This is the 2006 version... Appears a hazy, light orange toned gold with a fluffy, 2 finger white head that slowly fades out. Lots of sticky lacing is left around the glass. Small pockets of CO2 quickly rise to the top. Smell is of tropical fruit salad, leather, peach, oaky vanilla, dough, caramel, and a nice bourbon aroma that is excellent to inhale. There is a warmness found in the aroma but not a hot boozy burn as I seem to remember from the 2004 version. Taste is of the mentioned aromas and it seems to meld together nicely. This is one of the few Bourbon Barrel Tripels I’ve had and I think the peachy, apricot, tropical, doughyness really compliments the bourbony caramel, and vanilla warmness. Mouthfeel is slightly sweet up front with a smooth warming vanilla and spice flow across the palate. Finishes semi dry with bourbon and oak resonating and making me lick my lips awaiting the next sip.

This beer has a dense cloudy appearance with a pale orange caramel color. It ours with a frothy white foam which quickly dissipates. The aroma is dominated by charred oak with possible notes of resin, leather, and clove. It has a full body-- a creamy, thick feel with soft carbonation. The initial flavor is that of a trippel. It’s lightly bitter and almost salty. It has a spicy finish of bourbon, black pepper and alcohol. This is basically a trippel that is treated with the charred oak flavor of bourbon. Quite unique.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden, coppery color with minimal beige colored head that rests out. Aroma is bourbon, toasted malts, oak. Flavor is caramel, peat, bourbon, oak, bourbon, slight alcohol. Palate if full bodied, medium carbonation, sweet, resinous finish. Great stuff!

this beer pours a golden orange color with a small white head. Wow this beer has quite a sweetness to it! actually it seems more vinegary than sweet I think. It’s very different. I can taste the bourbon, but it is a sweet bourbon. This is quite a unique beer! I like it though! I will be buying this one again. Cheers!

750ml bottle, bottled june 2006, hazy honey gold hue, with an off-white head, with a bready malt nose, nice bourbon oakiness note, hint of cookie dough, faint fruitiness, a touch of vanilla spiciness, with a subtle cherryish, when it’s get warmer a kind of vinous-vinegary garlic aroma shows up, follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty bready character, good mouthfeel caramelized malt and bourbon sweetness, oakiness with a fruity cherryish accent, with an alcoholic note, leading towards a mild bourbonesque finish.

awaller05 (305) - Sharon, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Poured a hazy orange with minimal head. I could smell the bourbon right off the bat and was disturbed by that. I wouldn’t recommend anyone drinking this unless they had a lot of time. The bourbon overtakes everything on this beer. It took me close to an hour to finish and I wish I had only done half of the bottle.

Fightfire4beer (132) - Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy light gold with a thin white head. Very strong bourbon aroma that seems to overpower anything else. Oatmeal, malt and a slightly sweet caramel flavor. Bourbon through the whole thing. Good sipping beer. A

See-through golden pour with creamy, diminishing head. Lively nose that is dominated by cask wood and bourbon, an aroma that does not overwhelm all the other aromas — sweet cookie dough and toffee, peat, pineapple, ripe fruit, port, vanilla. Very sweet flavor with moderate acidity and bitterness. Tangy, peppery finish brought on by the alcohol. The mouthfeel is creamy, a hallmark of Allagash. Still, the texture is a bit watery. The balance between the qualities of the tripel and bourbon barrel aging is excellent. Unique and tasty.
