4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler fill poured into a Unibroue tulip. Coppery orange with straw colored edges. Thin white head leaves quickly. Smells rich of Cabernet; black and blueberries, plum, big American oak. Tastes like a seamless blend of tripel and Cabernet. Yeast forward, dry, vinous texture. Oak, strawberry,red grape, cinnamon. Excellent beer. Hard to believe itís not rated higher.

Fairly complex beer. Iíll have to go try the Devilís Backbone again to compare. Nice whiskey aroma with a Belgian yeast twist. Dark golden and clear color with a small head. Light palate with similar carbonation. Wine-like in feel. Grainy and sweet tripel flavors with a whiskey and oak boost. A little boozy. Enjoyed it.

This is definitely my favorite tripel. On the nose, the bourbon is clear. The taste is phenomenal with a nice sour finish.
