On tap at Jackie O's, $3 for a 10 oz pour!!
A- pours a dark amber color with an orange hue, small creamy white head with decent retention, leaving just a bit of lace behind on the glass
S- lots of bourbon! Oaky vanilla aromas with lots of barrel juice, there are some traceable traditional Tripel aromas in there but for the most part, they are masked by bourbon
T- the bourbon flavor dominates up front with barrel juice and vanilla flavors, mid-palate brings out some Belgian yeast and phenolic notes that tries to pop through, but is still masked by the bourbon, the finish is malty and sweet with more bourbon
M- medium body with low-moderate carbonation, somewhat foamy mouthfeel with a hot finish
O- I love bourbon heavy beers, so this worked for me. But considering the base beer is a Tripel, it gets completely lost in the overpowering bourbon flavors. It drinks more like a scotch ale rather than a Tripel. If you like bourbon, it's a good choice, otherwise overwhelming.

First, I tried a one ounce sampler. This is my kind of brew, so I got a growler filled to share with friends. Because it is Bourbon Barrel aged, it is quite pricy and is great for those special occasions. The 10% ABV is in the ballpark for me because I prefer at least 7% plus. The ABV comes through and I assume it is more apparent when getting it fresh from the keg. Looking forward to having more than the sampler to enjoy one of the best craft brews I have had in a long time.

A: Pours a medium amber brown to yellow color. Some head initially disappates and leaves little lacing.
S: Bourbon barrel present which is nice. Difficult to detect much else.
T: The bourbon taste masks possibly some of the goodness from the triple. That being said the bourbon barrel aging also adds a nice flavor.
M: Medium thickness as expected.
O: Really good. Debating whether the bourbon barrell enhanced the flavor here, but still nice and respect the effort to bring a different flavor to an existing brew.
