FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a hazy caramel-amber color with a small foamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweet honey, bourbon, coconut, bread and tropical fruits. The flavor was sweet with strong honey, candy sugar, bourbon, a noted boozy presence, tropical fruits and dried apricots. Tasted like a mix of rum cake and pineapple upsidedown cake. Long finish. Full bodied. Marvelous.

malrubius (1646) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2014
On tap at Heinens. Muddy dark orange amber with thin white ring. Woody herbal vanilla wafer gluey aroma. Very sweet raw spicy honey vanilla old boxed oranges with bitter herbal spicy overripe orangy finish. Thick and sticky slick. Definitely not what a tripel is meant to be. A gluey sticky mess.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Aroma of vanilla, alcohol, and bourbon. Slightly hazy straw pour. Medium body, with a big mouthfeel. Definitely a sipper. Very nice.

jsmerig (1208) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Rating 999 had to make it special. Pours a hazy orange yellow. Aroma of orange and caramel. Taste is smooth and sweet up front with notes if vanilla followed by a tart bitterness that dries the taste and masks the ABV. In fact I only felt the strength after it hit my stomach. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JaBier (4807) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Snifter at Jackie O’s Public House on 9/12/13. Clear amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of big bourbon, apple, banana and spice. Bourbon and vanilla oak flavor with some apple before a sweet banana finish. The barrel definitely calmed the banana some, and that’s a good thing.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Sample at Daily Growler. Pours a murky yellow-orange color with a thin white head that disappears quickly to a spotty outer ring. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, oak and fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of ripe fruit, oaky vanilla and herbal yeast. Any bourbon is minimal. The finish is woody with a ripe fruit and yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

NikkTwist (1529) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Draft at Eulogy. Very hazy amber with a frothy off-white head. Thick earthy honey sweet body with some vanilla bourbon notes lying subtly within. High ABV is well hidden. Very nicely balanced. No factor is overwhelming. Well done.

JStax (2853) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2013
On tap at the source. Pours a translucent copper with w white ring of foam around the edge of the glass. Aroma is big wood, vanilla, and oak. Taste is sweet honey a wet wood. Mouthfeel is big and sticky. Overall, this is pretty nice.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2013
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a golden color with a small sized off white head. Fruity, bourbon, vanilla, wood, oak, candi sugar, and some lighter spiciness. Sweeter but not cloying. Alcohol content well hidden. My favorite of the 7 Thirsty Dob beers I had that night - ordered a second one as my night cap and it sure did make me feel no more pain.

Not my go to style but jumped at the chance since I love barrel aged beers. Absolutely delicious with that barrel flavor I was looking for and way beyond with a tense spice flavor. Had on tap at North High Brewing columbus.
