COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Purple label. This tripel has been aged for 9 months in American oak barrels that were previously used to mature Malbec grown at Tiger Mountain, Georgia. During the maturation period in our climate controlled barrel room, the beer picks up new flavors from the barrels and their previous contents. The origin of the barrel and the grape varietal it contained both contribute their own nuances.

Bottle @ SF. Hazy amber with sudsy head. Smells of vanilla and tobacco and red wine-which reminds me of my dad. Dry and almost tastes smoky.

Thanks turdferguson for sharing. Pours murky orange amber with 1-2 fingers off white head. Nose is interesting, smells like Bourbon and sour oak, lots of vanilla and almond with spicy notes. Rich and strong with lots of oak and vanilla and a slight vinous quality. More Bourbon than red wine. Spicy and warm with a medium body.
