4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2007 This is only available at the brewpub. They take the second running mash from the 3 Guy Off the Scale Ale and used a Belgian yeast. This particular batch was aged in oak barrels for 6 months with 140 lbs. of peaches thrown into the brew during fermentation.
Appears a murky browninsh amber with a small white head that fades into a collar.
Smell is of oaky bourbon, vanilla, caramel, raisins.
Taste is of bourbon blended oak, caramel, raisins, toffee, and complex flavors that don’t overpower anything. Nice blend that hits the nail right on the head.
Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, oaky, and f’in perfect!!
Drinkability...this is so great that you won’t care about anything else...life is good. WARNING: Not for the faint of heart. I heard a few people complaining that it smelled like bourbon...well, duh!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap: Cloudy amber/yellow, smaller white head that diminished quite qiuckly. Bourbon is the word i will use to describe the aroma, oak, banana, strong mash in the palate, lightly hopped although quite complex. A very uniqe combination for a beer.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2010 Beer is cloudy amber with bubley white head, mostly diminishing. Aroma is big, fruit and spices, typical begium. Flavor has the usual cloves and bananas, but underlying it are sweet malts, caramel, and toffee. Nice creamy texture. Finish is short and dry. Truely a unique beer.
