Bottle courtesy of Hopscotch from 2006 batch. Straw blonde pour w/ a small head. Initial mouthfeel is a little light and a tad bit watery, but the finish is spicy hot w/ alcohol and bourbon notes. Good, but would like a little more taste on the front of the tongue. Finish is huge, but mouthfeel is light.

#1900! - 750ml bottle bottled October 2005 - Pours amber blonde with a light white head that fades quick..Aromas of oak, bread, bourbon, and caramel. Flavor is oak, bourbon, bread, cherry, and smooth caramel and some vanilla. Palate is ever so smooth and silky soft. Not much carbonation. Easy drinking and no sign of that 11% alcohol. Nice brew!!!

TURDFERGUSON (4056) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2006
Big Bottle from my secret santa. Thanks! Pours a beautiful blond with a half-inch white head and lacing. Aroma is very subtle- a little fruity, oaky, and light bourbon. Flavors are a bit more pronounced than the nose. Cherries, more bourbon, very sweet and smooth. A great adaptation of their excellent triple. Nummy Num delight.

On tap. Poured a golden orange with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is strong of bourbon, oak, and malty sweetness. Flavor was of malts, oak, yeast and had a sweet, alcohol finish. Has a somewhat spicy finish. Very quality brew, glad I took the reccomendation.

Pours a pale orange-tinted gold, ample head and lacing. Nose of mild burbon, not that Im particularly familiar with the stuff. Wow, definately unique. The blend between the malty sweetness and the woody burbon notes creates a unique flavor experience. Theres a slight lingering sweetness that imparts a maple/vanilla character. Not terribly complex overall though; a tad one-dimensional maybe. More/some Belgian character and less time in the barrel would be more to my liking. Still quite quaffable for 11% and gets points for uniqueness.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 27, 2006
This one is labeled October 2004. A medium gold color with small bubbles rising to the surface to help sustain a thick collar of lacing, bright white, tight-bubbled foam. Sweet honey-like malt notes with charred oak create a succulent, inviting aroma. Charred oak comes through strongly on the flavor with the complexity of the malt taking a backseat but there is a definite candy sugar note and sweetness forming the foundation and a strong, spicy yeast and alcoholic bite balancing. This reminds me of Weyerbacher Prophecy.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Rerate on a 2004 bottle: The oak mellowed nicely, the bourbon flavor faded away leaving a very smooth oak flavor. This was compared with a glass of the 2006 on tap, and clearly proved superior. Originally: Very slightly hazy golden body with a small frothy white head. Sweet oaked aroma. Sweet oaked flavor with some vanilla in the end with a sweet fruity background.

Pours a nice looking cloudy gold with a smaller head than most Belgian beers. Smells strong and wonderful: notes of bourbon and wine are very strong and dominant, but theres some maple, pear, sugar, and as it warms, oak. Complex aroma. Taste leans a bit heavy on the bourbon and oak flavors, but thats fine by me. Its a nice twist on the tripel style. Anyway, plenty of vinuous notes, some subtle dried fruit. Reminds me of a chardonnay. Dries out a little upon the finish due to a light estery yeast, but then comes back to the original flavors, rather than remaining dry. An oak and sour grape taste remain, with an acidic quality reminiscent of coffee. Mouthfeel was surprisingly soft, with fairly low carbonation, and medium body. I was pretty impressed with this, but since I havent had the original tripel, Im not sure how they compare.
