Picked up two of these beauties at Tasty Beverage downtown. One to celebrate and one to age.

A- Poured heavy into my Bell's tulip glass with a thick head that fades quickly. This beer is surprisingly very hazy with an golden orange tint.

S-The predominate aroma is definitely the bourbon & oak that smacks you in the nose. Followed by light yeast and candied sugar notes.

T-Like the nose the first thing that I get is the whiskey, vanilla, oak flavor that only intensifies as the beer warms. That flavor is nicely complimented with a peppery spice and carmel sweetness that is well balanced. Also I get the yeast flavor that characterizes a lot of tripels. Then the bourbon comes back for a lingering after taste.

M-Nice creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation.

O-Overall a great well balanced beer and one that I will getting on an annual basis. I'm interested in seeing how this one ages.
