Flaske. Pilsnergul l med et udemrket hoved. Konen kunne med det samme lugte humle, men jeg fik nrmest kun bourbon noter. Disse overdvede ogs komplet alle smagsnuancer. Heldigvis kan jeg godt lide bourbon, men synd at den ikke er mere diskret og balanceret.

January 2007 bottle. First impression was a bit surprising in this brew. Upon popping the cork and pouring, I got a huge whiff of ginger and pear, with Belgian yeast and spice. Transparent light gold color with a copious amount of carbonation; not much of a head, only some small white lace. Then after the first few sips, this beer gets more difficult to drink for me. Extremely strong alcohol is present in the flavor; so much, in fact, that it drowns out most of the elements present in the aroma that I would like to experience. Just a sweet and malty kick at start, then finishing in pungent mouthwash-like alcohol. Decent mouthfeel. I think either this brew seriously needs much more than 8 weeks in the barrels, or my bottle should have been set down for another year or two. Not very impressive for a barrel-aged concoction.

Aurelius (5215) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Highly phenolic aroma that smells like a freshly-unwrapped toy from China, which has been soaked in Beam. Glowing amber, thick white head. Bourbon, Belgian and boozy and thats about it. Clinging whiskey bitterness. Medium body, high CO2. Well done, Im sure, but not to my taste.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Bottle, Aug. 07. Hazy honey color. Light sweet bourbon aroma. Very nice, smooth bourbon flavor really stands out. The Triple flavor manages to sneak out a bit, but not much. Nice and warming without an overbearing alcohol bite. Very nice.

IrishBoy (4177) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Jan 2007 750 from mgumby10; nose of spices, yeast, and a hint of some vanilla oakiness; hazy yellow gold with a medium yellow-tinged head; flavor an odd combo of bourbon, pumpkiny fruitiness, breadiness, and nutmeg like a Jim Beam pumpkin pie, finish being bourbon and nutmeg!

The color was a hazy golden/orange. The head was creamy, thick, and white. The aroma was sour, aged, and some spice. The flavor was alcohol, sour, light bourgon, and aged. The palate was lively. The finish was very warm.

Hazy amber orange pour. Thick creamy white head. Sweet, sour whiskey bite, definite barrel aged. Tastes very spicy, definitely bourbon, Jack Daniels, sweet whiskey, sweet, dry alcohol warmthy, definitely 10%. Taste is kind of a turnoff though. Definitely a 3.7 but I wouldnt go any higher. Tasted immediately after Captain Lawrence Xtra Gold. CL was far superior.

Draft. This was the beer of the night for me. Apricot orange color. Yeasty fruity aroma. Sweet tropical fruit flavor. Rich and chewy mouthful with sweet candy/vanilla/alcohol in the finish.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Tap at Barcade: I was impressed with this stuff. Pours a hazy golden color with a white, creamy, lacing head. The aroma is bright and fruity with apple, citruses (lemon), honey, oak, various spices and yeast is evident. Great chewy body with lively carbonation. Has lots of layers of flavors. The fruits range from pears, green apple, lemon. Theres a nice sweet Belgian malt back, which is graham cracker-like, with tons of peppery spiciness to balance. The alcohol is very well hidden in the flavor, yet it still has a nice warming character. There is the bourbon-oak present, yet its subtle and comes through more as it warms. The finish is nice and has a flowery dryness with prolonged spiciness that helps balance the sweet fruitiness and rich body. A very nice Tripel.

Pale orange/yellow pour, little to no head. Big citrus, yeast nose along with some light malt and oak. Lightly carbonated mouth feel. There was a certain earthy citrus tone to this that melded in to a sweet oak/bourbon finish that didnt overpower the brew. Overall quite good.
