(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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

queenholly (2919) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2014
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.

Ratman197 (9704) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2014
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bourbon, oak, vanilla, fruitiness, light straw and light coconut. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla, caramel, fruitiness and spice with a smooth dry lingering bourbon finish.

drsordr (1045) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2014
Draft sample at FoBAB 2013 pours light golden. Nose sweet malt, whisky, floral, and some Belgian esters. Taste loads of sweet malt up front, bubblegum, then whiskey. lighter finish.

alexsdad06 (5363) - Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2014
Draft sample at FoBAB ’13. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, Belgian yeast, fruity notes favoring apple juice, big bourbon character that comes off as hot and boozy, some mild vanilla and wood. The barrel was a bit overwhelming to the rest of the flavors of the beer.

Bacterial (1521) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2014
Crazy looking can included as a bonus from Durne13 - thanks!! Pours a pretty viscous clear amber with just a slight head. Wonderful bourbon toffee nose. Taste is really lovely, lots of complex malt sweetness, fades to some slightly harsh slightly metallic tannin then moves to a warm bourbon finish. I really like this!

Draft to taster at FoBAB. Looks solid; a completely transparent golden orange with thin white head. Smells solid too; mild Belgian yeast notes with a sweet backbone and a notable bourbon presence. Tastes like it smells, only better, with robust notes of bourbon and softer notes of oak and cherry. Nice on the palate. Enjoyable.
