Too much barrel washes out most of the character here. Tastes of whiskey with light coriander and some booze. Pours cloudy orange without much head or lacing. Bitter, wooden finish here. Tap at rustico ballston.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 Extra from trev1179(BA) , it was a while ago. Bottle dated 04 10. I assume that means 2010. Nose is bourbon and cane sugar. Taste is more old ale than belgian. Very smooth, lots of buttery bourbon. Great stuff.

2012 bomber into Trappist glass, cloudy golden-copper color with minimal bright white head. Aroma of sweet candy malt, caramel, fruity, slight vanilla and oak. Taste adds notes of dried fruits (raisins, apricots, figs), bubblegum, some citrus and light bourbon. Medium body, low carbonation, soft, kid of boozy, creamy, tannic with oaky sweet finish. Pretty oaky sweet tripel, aged very well.

Draft at Smoke and Barrel in DC. Poured a clear amber color, small off-white head. Aroma was notes of sweet malts, some notes of barrel and bourbon. Sweet fruit character. Pretty good.

Draft not a big tripel fan but enjoy most bbl beer. Really sweet. Nice bourbon aroma but much to sweet for first beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle shared by jmborggren. Pours a hazy dark golden amber color with a thin white film. The aroma and flavor has sweet malts, ripe fruits, bourbon, vanilla, honey and wood. The bourbon is very noticeable and probably a bit too much for the body of the beer.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by jmborggren- thanks, Jeremy! Pours a hazy, dull gold color with a small head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, oak, dried apricot, dried grains, and straw. Flavor is the same. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, sweet mouthfeel. This worked for me. Nice barrel-aged tripel.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2013
750ml bottle, shared by jmborggren. Mostly hazy orange amber color. Minimal white head, couple specks of lace. Awesome vanilla bourbon aroma. Bigger body, lightly crisp carbonation. Full-bodied, but lightly dry in the finish. Good long oaky vanilla aftertaste. Sweeter taste, light bitter, tasty light bourbon warmth. Bit of a warm banana bread type base. Very tasty stuff. Awesome bourbon character here is prominent, without having any bite or warmth

750 ml bottle to snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a cloudy orange with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes sweet and malty with notes of bourbon and caramel. Nice and smooth on the palate. Good beer!

Cybercat (3384) - Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Comes out of the bottle a beautiful golden amber, bubbly as champagne, with a very thick and fluffy pale wheat head. Strong aroma has apple, pear and caramel notes with a subtle malty underpinning. Flavor is rather sweet, but not cloying - apple, honey, caramel, an alcohol nip from the barrel aging, earthy and woody hints. Firm, smooth, fizzy texture leaves a fruity and woody finish that has a hint of bourbon. Go overhead over heels for this one!
