On tap at Burial. As expected. Great tripel with tons going on but my 8oz pour was plenty. Nice hazy mostly golden but slightly orange pour with thick white head that stays put. Taste is yeasty, spice, clove, fig, raisin, with subtle bourbon. Nicely done with the barrel againg and blending -allows other flavors to come through. Smooth and somewhat slick/ buttery mouthfeel-flirting with syrupy. Sweetness lingers a bit too long. Boozy, but doesn’t burn.

A little more orange than yellow, aroma of vanilla and banana, taste is light bourbon, woth oaky tannins contributing excellence to the dry, creamy, finish.

Spicy, Clove, vanilla aroma. Woody bourbon barrel taste, crisp champagne like head, with a light mid mouth Bourbon hit. Likely a top 10.

Pours a fairly clear, light orange color. Sweet, caramel malt, oaky, light bourbon, and a hint of a sweet tart note. Sweet, malty, Belgian yeast character, spicy phenols, vanilla, oak, and bourbon and some alcohol heat in the finish.

Prufrockstar (1209) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2014
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.

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

VT (1708) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly veiled golden with a resilient, thick and creamy white head. Aroma is lemon, wild yeast, vanilla, wood, orange. Flavor is lemon, vanilla, wood, oldish, dusty, liquor. Finish is very oldish, dusty, woody, boozy. Medium body, average carbonation.

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.
