glass shared and one sip was more than I needed. I truly donít know what they were thinking with this one but this is like scope mouthwash with minty crest toothpaste in a glass. no no and no.

CanIHave4Beers (3999) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Pours a golden color with a medium sized head & some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is pretty true to form... Lots of bourbon, lots of mint, smells like a dange cockedtail. Sort of boozy, a touch spicy... Mostly minty & bourbony.

The flavor is indeed mint-julep-esque, in fact not much of the character of the Long Strange Tripel remains after the mint and barrels have had their way with this. Itís booZy and itís weird... Itís also tasty, and really I think itís supposed to be all of the above.

Fun

luttonm (4523) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Chuckís CD, Seattle. Heavy, red-tinged gold, clear. Small foam. Intense menthol, mint, alcohol very present. Not bad. Toffee, christmas-like candy. Anise, biscotti. Heavy, thick. Very interesting, unique, glad I tried it but not for me. Interesting that this beer draws so many opinions ... you seem to love it or hate it (unless youíre me, and youíre firmly in the middle).

jandd1983 (3791) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JUN 11, 2016
On tap at Three Kings Manchester. It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of mint, wood and alcohol. The taste was similar with more mintiness, wood, a touch of bourbon, and alcohol. Pretty tasty.

snoworsummer (4533) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Draft at the Gnarly Barley. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like booze, mint, lemon/lime citrus, and woody malt. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like mint, lime, sugar, and bourbon.

Mortlach (1886) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 3, 2016
Can shared by ippopotamo36. Pours pale amber, filtered, with a medium off-white foam. Aroma of chewingum, peppermint, caramel, no peculiar traces of whisky. Flavour of mint, balsamic, caramel. Medium body, medium to light carbonation. Not my cup of tea.

nimbleprop (7345) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Sampled at HopCat Detroit. Clear gold ring of white head. Nose is straight toothpaste, a little lime too. Flavor is ginger ale, cream soda and spearmint gum. Sweet finish. Train wreck.
