3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Pours a deep golden color with three fingers of eggshell foam. Lots of sweet undertones of coconut, bourbon, citrus and spicy yeast character. Rich buttery chardonnay grape, soft vanilla, dry yeast. Not my favorite style brew but well done for sure !
