corkyrory66 (548) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
Bière triple de seigle mûrie en fût de bourbon titrant à 10 % abv. Couleur brun rouge moyen, et roux clair en transparence. Clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonne centrale. Mousse qui fait un nappage beige caramel. Arômes merveilleux de fût, bourbon, réglisse, pruneau, amande, noisette. 1ère bouche soyeuse à veloutée, avec une emprise maltée, accompagnée de fruits mûrs, de bois et d’épices orientales. Arrière-bouche pleine, dense, large, ample. 2ème bouche avec finesse et complexité. 3ème sur des nuances de whisky réelles et fortes, du bourbon nettement. Arrière-bouche de bois intense sur un malt profond. La longueur offre une admirable harmonie des saveurs, une ampleur sans pareille, des nuances superbes dans tous les registres. La levure possède une incroyable densité et complexité, merveilleuse veine. L’alcool tient une splendide progression dans le soutien total aux saveurs. La finale invite à se pourlécher les babines et se délecter pendant 10 ans … CONCLUSION : une extraordinaire production d’une qualité superbe,, avec une profondeur de brassage sans nom. Une bière strictement admirable, et … incroyable mais vrai … sur 123 cotes elle n’a pas encore obtenu de 5 !!!!!!!! je lui donne un rate approximatif de 666 sur 100 … Excusez-moi.

Sublirony (11) - SINGAPORE - JUL 30, 2014
Pours an opaque though light brown with substantial head that quickly subsides. Good lacing. Alcoholic nose with notes of vanilla. The palate is thick and chewy! Quite a remarkable texture. Strong though well-integrated bourbon in the taste, with a long finish. Good stuff.

neuromatt (1131) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
33 cL bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a snifter. Pours deep mahogany with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of pale fruit, apple, apple, and plum, along with pepper and a subtle spice note. The flavour is moderately spicy with rye notes. This is paired with molasses, toffee, pepper, pale fruit and toasted malts. The finish is long and spicy with toasty malts and subtle vanilla and oak notes from the bourbon barrel. On the palate, it is medium in body with a syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a great bourbon barrel-aged tripel. The combination of bourbon and tripel is novel and the flavours surprisingly complementary. 2014-07-19

Aroma of raisins, bread and wood. The taste is similar. Feels dry. Balanced finish. The bourbon is not taking over the beer. Nice!
