_angst_ (4810) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Håkan. Fairly clear golden pour with a small frothy white head. Heavy bourbon BA nose with caramel, vanilla fudge, charred wood and toasted coconut mixed with hints of toffee, baked pears, hay, minerals and bourbon alcohol. Sweet and tiny bitter taste. Round boozy mouthfeel. Heavy pear and bourbon alcohol finish. If it wasn’t for the baked pears I wouldn’t even have guessed triple. Very heavy bourbon character. Nice for what it is but I had hoped for something more Belgian.

Bottle to tulip Consummation: Oak, muted bourbon, hint of sour, caramel, malts, yeast...so smooth Adjunct: Aroma of bourbon, wood, carrot, apple cider, light sweet yeast; as I said before, so smooth, silky, and a bit boozy, but not what would be expected for this ABV; clear, but not crystal, light amber with a frothy white head that falls pretty quickly to a thin white ring, with active effervescence

LouisP (574) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2016
Une bière blonde orangée, avec une belle mousse, et un peu d’effervescence. Au nez, on sent beaucoup la levure, qui me rappelle un peu celle des saisons belges, plus qu’une triple. On a une sensation d’alcool également, qu’on attribue sans doute au vieillissement en barriques. En bouche, on retrouve la base de triple assez sucrée, intéressante, avec vraiment un arriere-goût sucré qui me rappelle le sirop d’érable. J’attribue sans doute cette présence sucrée au bourbon. L’alcool, pour une bière à 11%, me semble tout à fait inexistant, la rendant impressionnante à ce chapitre. La bière n’est pas tout à fait complexe, mais est une réussite pour sur.

Great stuff. Light golden opaque, 2 finger head. Lively carbonation. Barrrels are not strong in the aroma but add a nice complexity to an already great flavor. As far as tripels go, I would put the base beer up against any of them. This version ups the ante for me.

Quick3Beers (1360) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Pours a hazy amber from a bottle with a pillowy white head. Aroma of green apple and vanilla. Flavor adds a surprising coconut note into the mix. A heavy-hitter with some alcohol burn, but mostly this is a creamy beer with a big mouthfeel. Good beer.

Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Sample at Bob’s Bar during the "Mike Langley GTFO of Columbus Bottle Share" on 08/29/2016. The beer pours a clear pale golden color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, bourbon and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of bourbon, oaky vanilla, fruity yeast and malt. The finish is mildly boozy with a bourbon and yeast aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

On tap at Chickies and Pete’s on Packer Ave. this one is all Belgian followed by all bourbon, so much so I couldn’t get past the bourbon, but I’m not down on an 11% beer and I did drink 5 of them, so hope that helps you.

Draft. Pours a hazy goldenish color. Aroma and taste are fruits, yeasty, sweetness, and bourbon.
