sunevdj (4011) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006
Pours a very hazy light golden with a white foamy head. Sweet and very whiskey-like aromas. Nice warming alcohol sensations. Full bodied. Peppery, dry whiskey finish. Very good.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Unclear pilsener golden with a small, off-white head. Rather neutral aroma - mainly of alcohol. Full and markedly alcoholic body with the bourbon flavours slowly but splendidly unfolding warming your palate. This is almost zen! The finish is pure bourbon. Delicious. 270106

madsberg (11612) - Sborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
Bottled: Golden coloured. Hazy Off white dense head. Fat sweet malty fruit aroma. Has some underlaying grape notes. the maltyness carries on into the flavour. The barrels really comes to their right. Has some alcohol notes, but its very well hidden. Has a good full sweetness. Might be a bit old, but it really is a beauty. Alcohol on the lips in the end.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7162) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2006
UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 I am not overly familiar with this brewer. This is the 12/2004 batch. Sampled from a 750 ml bottle this beer poured a very cloudy medium golden color with a medium sized soapy white head that faded quickly. The aroma is pure bourbon and honey. The flavor is dominated with sweet honey followed by a rather strong alcohol burn and the definite flavor of alcohol. Overall the beer tastes remarkably like Wild Turkey Honey Liquor.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Botted July 2005: Whisky, wood, and orange peel aromas; sweet, fruity flavor with hints of peaches and pears, maybe some vanilla; very slight oak and bourbon notes; spicy and herbal hoppiness in the finish; slick body somewhat on the heavy side; hot alcoholic burn. The tripel, a superior beverage. does not get better with this treatment.

Beer with the bourbon, bourbon with the beer. This phenomenon of stashing beer in bourbon barrels does not always leave me wanting more -- Weyerbachers Heresy, for instance -- but this one works. There are profound notes of cognac and single malt scotch. Leather, mango, even malted cork give this elixir an ethereal nose. Inhale it or drink it? Inhale it or drink it... Do both. Trust me, good ol James Beam NEVER got his bourbon as right as Allagash got this beer.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - JAN 8, 2006
October 2004 bottle from Dorwart. Initial findings on this pour was that it would be something special. Beautiful pour with a nice frothy head. Good aroma of banana, vanilla, that all-to-familiar Allagash yeast strain and a well balanced bourbon aroma. Even the flavor was nice, vanilla, more banana, some faint spices ... almost like a sugar cookie. As it warmed, the bourbon started to muscle to the fore and take over. By the end of the glass, it still tasted like a sugar cookie, but more like a sugar cookie dunked in Jim Beam. At the very end, I swear I got a little whiff of cooked celery. I guess its pretty good, just a little hot, and thats after aging it an additional 15 months. Hmmmmmm.
