Vestergaard (1766) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2016
On tap at City Tap House. Pours a clear amber with a small og white head. Aroma has bourbon, honey, malts, hops, whiskey sour, light cumin spice. Taste is sweet, spicy, lots of bourbon, boozy, minty, again this weird cumin note. Average carbonation and an oily body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The Smokestack Series has taken beer to some truly unique places. Tripel Julep is weird on a whole other level. It looks like your regular Tripel. Looks are where things stop being normal. They really went balls out with the mint in here; itís not subtle at all. Big minty aroma. Strong herbal, minty taste, too, plus some partially sweet bread flavors. You feel the peppermint as well. Fresh and cooling sensation, which is definitely not unpleasant but really unusual. This wonít become a new Smokestack favorite but I have to admire the fact that this is completely crazy yet not disgusting.

Draft/Fest. A- Peppermint, spearmint, wintergreen toothpaste. A- Gold color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Mint, mouthwash, strong. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, minty finish. O- This had so much potential and while it was good, the mint was simply overbearing and too much. Pull back the mint and itíll be much better.

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 (4030) - 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.

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).

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.
