Orange pour, small white head. Aroma of bourbon and peppermint, chocolate. Flavor is mostly peppermint, quite sweet. Interesting, but too sweet, quite intense.

Beachmaster (384) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 7, 2016
On draught. Pours a hazy amber, with a moderate white head. Nose is peppermint candy. Taste follows. Lots of peppermint flavor, with a slightly boozy finish. Not bad as a novelty.

rondphoto (3625) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 6, 2016
on tap @ Party Town (Friday Night Flights) / Florence KY --- Clear, medium maple amber color, beige head that drops to nothing, tiny lace dots. Taste is caramel mint that adds malt and then, alcohol in the finish. It boils down to sweet mint, followed by sweet alcohol. Very interesting and refreshing, but I’d never make it through a full bottle of the stuff.

dnstone (2457) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Julep-like minty aroma. Quite minty in taste with significant bourbon notes over a light tripel. Pale golden in color with a strong sudsy white head. A bit too minty for me, but a great idea and well-done. Notes: Denver Rare Beer Tasting ’13

vyvvy (5375) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Sampled at Perennial’s Midwest Belgian Beer Festival - This was definitely a different take on a tripel. Pours hazy dark orange with a white head. The aroma has lots of mint, barrel aged whiskey taste, heavy malt and an odd muddled flavor - very interesting. It has a medium / ful body that is very rich with mild carbonation. The flavor starts with bourbon, heavy malt and lots of fresh crisp mint. The finish is very minty and malty. Interesting and enjoyable, but not sure I’d want a very large portion at a time.

M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - SEP 29, 2013
On tap at KC Beer Fest 2013, solid and interesting with a predominant, yet harmonious layer of mint overshadowing the warm, slightly spicy tones of the beer and barrel, would like to try this with the mint dialed way back

jcnielsen (3000) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Festival. Pours a hazy dark golden color with white head. Minty, bourbon, wood, alcohol flavors. Tastes like a beer to enjoy on Christmas.

Lots of spice. Dark straw. Pretty tart. There is a strong flavor of something I can?t recognize...ah yes, mint. Midwest Belgian beer fest.
