Corked bomber. Pours a lovely hazy golden amber with a good head that fades slowly. Aroma a pungent, tangy well-balance sweet scotch. Flavor a big hit of scotch carried by a finely effervescent medium body. Tapers almost imperceptibly to a slightly citrus finish. Overall a stunningly unique beer with a very high drinkability factor.

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

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

Bottle pour. Cloudy golden brown with a large creamy white head. Oak and bourbon aroma. Smooth medium body. Bourbon and no flavor, but not an overly strong alcohol taste for the percentage.

On draft at Yardhouse in Dedham. Good, cloudy light orange color with a frothy white head. Oaky aromas and flavors. Some fruity sweetness. Very tasty. I wish it wasn’t so expensive.

Hadn’t had this beer in a long while but boy is it good. The tripel and the bourbon really play well together. Still light and lively but with solid coconut and oak notes throughout. Just fun.

4 oz draft pour at ChurchKey’s Allagash 5th Anniversary event. Hazy golden brown with off-white head. Aromas of bourbon and spices. Tastes of bourbon, herbs, spices, citrus. Medium body with a dry and warm finish.

Bottle shared at the RBESG 2014, grand tasting 09/08/2014. Thanks to Colin. Orange / golden coloured pour with a mid haze, with a loose white head. Aroma is hot alcohol and caramel, wheaty, light spices. Perhaps past its best. Flavour is composed of, caramel, wheaty grains, warming alcohol, spices, cinamon and some hot alcohol. Palate is semi full body, highish carbonation. semi sweet.

Man. Hitting the lottery on beer picks today. Another fantastic one. Orange foggy pour from 22oz bottle at home. Vanilla and lemon aroma. Sweet honey candy and slight bourbon taste. A ton going on in this beer. So good.

"2008? pours with a nice, white, fluffy head. typical belgian aroma, but there is something more. can’t taste the oak, but it’s a very melow, yet very complex nose and flavor. I liked it quite a bit. Others were expecting more for the price. 2011 release more bourbon and oak, a little sweeter...still awesome."
