Not as great as i had hoped... didnt get much bourbon flavor at all.... poured into an allagash glass out of a 7 month old bottle... personally id buy the triple or triple reserve before i ever buy this again

Hazy orange color. Wood, citrus and alcohol in the aroma. Full bodied. Malty, boozy and buttery. Great beer.

On tap in a snifter at new Binny’s tasting room Willow St. location. Pours cloudy gold, very nice. Flavor is sweet, mildly spicy, bright wheat. Absolutely no alcohol burn. Outstandingly well balanced Tripel, although not a lot of the "bourbon barrel" taste comes through.

A splendid belgian tripple, with oak, and bourbon notes that linger on the pallet, the color is a touch hazy but nothing to cry about. Worth every penny.

Arômes sucrés venant du bourbon. Très doux en bouche, équilibre parfait des saveurs d’orange, bois, sucre et alcool qui réchauffe la gorge.

Maybe the best bourbon barrel aged beer I've tasted. My favorite Allagash beer so far. Strong but excellent taste.

Bomber aged a few years - vigorous pour, medium head that dissipates quickly. Has a light grapefruit look to it. I detect a light fruit (peaches) flavor along with a sweet candy flavor. The alcohol is hidden and it kinda snuck up on me. Medium body and dry.

Bottle. Hazy light amber kiquid with light to mediu off-white head. Aroma of wood, coconut, bourbon, light banana, light caramel and spice. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of light coconut, wood, light grain and light banana. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Pretty nice.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Mikkeller. Pours clear gold with foamy white head. Aroma of fruit, honey, bubblegum; somewhat floral, but mostly sweet and fruity. In the mouth this is thick, syrupy sweet, really overbearingly sweet/syrupy. I’m surprised -- this is hard to drink. My companion for the night is able to finish both a triple ipa and an imperial porter while I’m still staring down the last ounce of my $8.5 250ml pour, unwilling to let it go but really not looking forward to finishing it. Overall: Boozy sweet sticky beer that’s hard to drink, and not even remotely enjoyable at any point.
