Lightly hazed gold colored body. Hugely sharp bourbon-vanilla nose, really difficult to get past, but it’s actually quite nice... some honey sweetness and candy sugar buried beneath this hugely sweet vanilla-scented bourbon nose, but it doesn’t turn me away. Flavor is pasty and yeast heavy, some sharpness as well, alcohol easily noticed, and it has the distinct flavor of Irish whiskey, of all things... when warmer there’s more vanilla, candy sugar and true bourbon integrated with this Irish whiskey note... nice overall, warming.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow, what a nice beer this is. Pours ruddy dark strawish brown with fluffy off-white head. Nose is candi sugary malt, white pepper, heavy oaky bourbon, hops, fruit, some yeasty florals. Palate is very complex with a solid heft. Nice rock sigary maltt mathced with yeasty esters, some earthy notes, and a very assertive bourbon element that doesn’t overpower the beer, but rather accompanies it in a very bold way. This is an outstanding brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 Poured a lightly hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, citrus, coriander, yeast, bourbon, and some plastic. Taste of citrus, earthy yeast, some spices, vanilla, light bourbon, and a dry, alcohol finish. Various batches of this come off very different.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the West Chester location. Hazy golden pour, lacing white head. Aroma of apple juice, white grapes and white wine, woody bourbon. Heavy bourbon taste, only mildly restrained alcohol in the lightish body. Fresh flowers, a little vinegar, apple juice. Doesnt stand out much for bourbon beers, bourbon dominates the lovely tripel character a bit much, still good.
