Batch 1 (2008) and Batch 2 (2010) of Captain Lawrence’s Extra Gold aged in apple brandy barrels. There’s nothing quite likes Mom’s apple pie…But I am willing to bet this beer is pretty darn close. An American Tripel, dry-hoped with Amarillo hops and aged in Apple Brandy barrels from one of this country’s oldest distilleries. The tropical aroma of the hops and the delicate apple aroma from the barrels are a perfect match

Bottle pour from 2012 purchased at brewery..slight gusher upon opening..aroma is noticeable immediately..once slight mess is cleaned up..pours a golden yellow..hue..liking the active carbonation..nose is got all kinds of action with some noticeable tropical aroma from the hops as stated..pineapple..dried fruit..has some champagne...hard cider and brandy character intertwined..mouthfeel is medium bodied and quite creamy and smooth..hides the high abv well at start..taste includes vanilla..cream soda qualities..the apple jack brandy it was aged in..leaves a lingering kick in the mouth from the apple brandy barrel that coats the entire palate and provided just the right mix of warming presence with a bit of heat..quite complex and damn right this pairs well with apple pie..very enjoyable....

pours cloudy orange with a small off white head. The aroma is a strong oak and apples. Medium mouthfeel with strong apple spice and malt with very boozey finish. Good.

A: Golde Straw Hue, Passes Lots of Light, White Head, Some Lacing S: Boozy, Mild Apples, Mild Yeast, Mildly Spicy T: Apples, Buttery, Brandy, Boozy M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Boozy, Semi Cloying Overall, it has a definite presence of apples and the brandy barrels but that 12% packs a lot of punch and is definitely there to let you know it packs a punch too. Glad to have tried but probably wouldn’t revisit.

GABF 2013. Gold with good carbonation. Nose of rotting granny smith apples and booze. Apple funk, rustic earthiness, cheap brandy. Underdelivered for me.

Bottle at Churchkey. Pours clear gold to orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit and honey malt, perfume and citrus hops, pear and apple esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting malt, light alcohol, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Recent bottle in a trade. Light coloring that surprises with the strong brandy and apple tones.

Bottle from trade with blklab2007. Pours a cloudy light orange color with a foamy head lingers nicely. Aroma is tropical fruit, apples, and brandy. Taste starts off nicely with a light apple sweetness and some tropical fruit. Then the apple brandy barrel flavor just takes over. Finishes kinda hot. Not smooth at all and it’s a struggle to finish my glass. I think the barrel is just too strong for this base beer. Not my kinda beer.
