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.
