Pours a golden yellow color with a thick and lasting white head. Very intriguing aroma with all the tropical fruit smell that you expect from a tripel with just a hint of bourbon and vanilla. Astoundingly good flavor.Noticeable bourbon with lots of tropical fruity flavor and plenty of spice. The 11% ABV is hardly noticeable until youre finished with the bottle. The subtle smoked wood flavors really set this one apart.

[July 2005 edition] Hazy yellowy orange with a foamy head that dissipates to a fine, white lace. The aroma, surprisingly, was lemony wheat malty with a buttery Belgianish character and corriander(?) note. Spicy and alcoholic flavour that is nicely rounded out by a maltiness that is not too sweet, as this type of beer often is. The bourbon comes in late in the taste and is not dominating at all. Some anonymous hops in there as well Everything is in very good balance, with no particular flavour dominating and a smooth finish. Medium body and a little warming with moderate carbonation. Excellent.

The Bourbon imparted by the casks does not overwhelm. Oh, its in the aroma and taste but I found this to be overall an easily drinkable, refreshing beer. Pours golden with a moderate amount of carbonation. Some nice flavors at play like yeast, vanilla, zest, and oak. A lot more subtle in flavor than I was expecting but with a well-disguised alcoholic-kick.

Got lucky enough to have two of these.The bourbon was a little overpowering in the nose and the taste but I reaaly enjoyed the mellow flavor.The spices and fruit that you might expect from a Belgian Strong Ale did not show up much but this still was a taste treat.

really intresting beer. After reading the barrel aged part i was expecting a much different beer. This was lighter and cleaner without a lot of the overpowering barrel flavors. Ended up knocking me on my ass that night though. Hides the 11% well.

POurs a pale heavy golden color, small white head. Aroma of buttered popcorn, sweet and bourbony. Flavor is woody, lots of spice and sweet malt. Dry finish.

Bottle thanks to JCW....and says 10%. Hazy,golden with long,lasting,foam. Aroma is not as strange as I was expecting. The triple and bourbon go together quite,well. The malts and yeast stand out in the aroma,as well as the bourbon. Although well,carbonated the mouthfeel,is quite smooth. The flavor is strong on the belgian malt and yeast,with bourbon and wood being noticeable.As it warms the bourbon flavors take over,which is the only negative,for me.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Interesting brew. The aroma was vanilla, bananas, and bourbon. Strong bourbon flavor with hints of vanilla, oak, and belgian yeast. This really needs to breathe for a while before becoming really enjoyable.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Odd milk/whiskey aroma. Full whiskey flavor, that smoothed into banana and cloves. Sweet with lots of alcohol in the flavor. Definitely an interesting brew, but Im not a whiskey fan and that was a little too strong here.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Tasted at the Labor Day gathering. Banana aroma with some heavy alcohol notes, slight whiskey presence comes out with it. Flavor is sugary and alcoholic. This comes off as pretty rough, somewhat burning of a flavor. Suprisingly disappointing. This could have been something great, but the belgian goodness was shot down from the whiskey.
