3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Refrigerated 16 oz. aluminum bottle, compliments of shrubber85, poured into a Trappist glass. Clear deep golden with small off-white head. Aroma is sweet bourbon, medium body, low carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is really nice bourbon, caramel, and some butterscotch. I like this pretty well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light golden with a lasting foamy white head. Leafy hoppy sour nose with a funny earthy yeasty eccentricity. Earthy dry flavor with a little funkiness and a leafy dry hop bitterness. Honestly a little underwhelming.

(16oz aluminum can) clear medium gold with a lasting ring of white bubbles. Nose of vanilla, Belgian malt, alcohol/fusel. Taste is way more refined than the smell, toasty marshmallows, vanilla, super malty/smooth bourbon, loads of Decadent flavor. Medium thick with a sweet finish.

Can shared at May Ale Alpharetta. I thought this was really nice not even knowing that it was Pappy. (and yes pappy is superior from what i’ve noticed in barrel aging). Floral, big bourbon, sweet maltiness, light fruits, vanilla, oak. I dig it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can - well. This one is certainly different. Light gold pour with white head a small rim of retention. Nose of bourbon and some fruit. Taste is light fruit and malt with bourbon mixed in. Very strong flavor of bourbon. Not just the heat. I enjoyed that flavor as it warmed. It's actually a fairly substandard triple but I did enjoy the flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz aluminum bottle. Apple, oak, bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon, and alcohol aroma. Smells a lot like an bourbon/oak aged cider. Clear brassy gold with a very small white head. Boozy bourbon, vanilla, oak, and fruity flavor. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Big overwhelmingly hot boozy bourbon flavor which drowned out any Belgian character.
