On tap at Thirsty Dog. This beer is awesome. Pours clear semi dark golden hue with thin off white head. Aroma is bourbon, banana, clove, a touch of caramel and honey with some vanilla. Medium mouthfeel. The flavors meld together perfectly in this beer. The beer components are cut through and balanced perfectly by the barrel aging here. While the base beer is pretty rough around the edges and I find difficult to drink the barrel makes this a beautiful beer. Bourbon, mostly bananas and caramel make this a real treat.

This poured a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma was Bourbon, Belgian yeast, grass and.booze. Flavor similar, some Bourbon, light booze, underlying beer is a little hidden but tasty.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2014
On tap at Pour on Center. Beautiful oaky bourbon aroma, sweet and musky. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Amber clear with thin lacing head. Sweet and alcoholic with nice warming. Mellow bourbon and oak flavors, sweet with honey, vanilla, and light hoppy character. Very smooth, nice tripel.

Wow. Great work. Nose is fruit and malt. Smooth and thick malt fullness. Big alcohol but mellowed out. ---Rated via my mouth

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - 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 (1855) - Springfield, Vermont, 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 (1289) - 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 (5011) - 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 (8660) - 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.
