COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aged for over 12 weeks in the choicest 15 Year Old Kentucky Bourbon Barrels you can find. Bourbon Barrel Three Chopt Tripel is not overpowering. It’s sophisticated. Notes of citrus, lemon-lime, honey and coconut are rounded out with the smooth flavor of Kentucky Bourbon. Surprisingly easy to drink at 11.3% ABV and does not have a “hot” flavor.

Sampled at GABF 2015, I believe this is the one I sampled. In the tasting glass was amber with a beige head. Nose of citrus and bourbon. Medium body. Flavor is dominated by the bourbon aging, but there is a lot of flavors hiding in there that makes this delicious. Need a bigger sample to figure all this out but overall this is a good beer and fun to drink.

Poured a medium, hazy amber, slight fizzy head. Aroma of caramel malts, vanilla, slight yeast spiciness, and a woodsy note. Flavor is a match. The barrel treatment is evident, and I feel like it muted a lot of the Belgian character, almost to the point of there being very little Belgian character. The malt profile was almost more English somehow. Not bad, but not what I had expected either.

750 ml bottle. Pours a darker orange golden color with an off white foamy head that leaves medium - heavy lacing. The smell is vanilla, coconut, oak, mango, and passion fruit. It’s a nice base tripel that’s peppery, malty, and hops. You get vanilla, oak, and bourbon booze from the barrels along with coconut, tropical fruit, pineapple, and resin. Creamy mouthfeel with little carbonation and a nice dry finish. Another excellent offering from LCCB.

As bored and tired as I am of bourbon barrel beers, this one grew on me, with a bitterness to keep the molasses, smoke and booze of the barrels.

Draft at the source. Clear golden color, bright white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of vanilla, grapefruit. Taste is boozy and sweet vanilla bourbon. Tasty.
