Heaven Hill barrel aged version of Triple Over Head.

The flavors of our Belgian-style tripel keep rollin’ in; filling your mouth with perfect peeling waves of unexpected pleasure. Respectfully aged in seasoned bourbon barrels, this beer offers you an amazing zest, balanced with flavors of warming oak. The result? A complex sipping beer that finishes smooth and sweet, giving you a glide you won’t soon forget.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with small white head. Fresh wood shavings, vanilla, butterscotch aromas. Oak, bourbon, boozy, malty flavors. I didn’t realize this was a bourbon barrel aged tripel when I was buying it, I thought it was a regular tripel. Oh well, but not much left in it related to a tripel. Solid beer, not really my type these days, but a nice change of pace.

Bottle pour hazy orange copper with rapidly dissipating small head. Nose vanilla, caramel, biscuit, butterscotch. Taste initial harsh tannin followed by more pleasant flavors. Some base tripel sweet malt, fruit and spices balanced by vanilla from the barrel. Would be more pleasant without the initial harshness.

Bottle shared by Eddy. Pours clear pale copper color with off white head. Aromas of bourbon, oak, caramel, and yeast. Big bourbon flavor with some caramel sweetness, oak, and dough. Medium to full body with minimal carbonation and a syrupy mouthfeel.

Westchesterco (1460) - mclean, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Poured from a bottle it is a hazy effervescent caramel colored beer. It has the aroma of butterscotch. The taste is black licorice and a hint of peppermint that lingers on the palate

Iphonephan (4767) - McLean, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2014
From A 75 CL bottle shared at home. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head. Aroma of caramel. Flavors bourbon dominate. Not finding much Belgian influence here. But pretty tasty anyway.

solidfunk (5667) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 27, 2014
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.
