Poured into a lager glass with no head or real signs of carbonation. Smells of citrus and whisky are nice. Taste of whisky overpowers any fruitiness possibly because of the lack of carbonation. Very disappointed as this beer had a very high price point so I expected better. Would be interested in trying a fully carbonated bottle.

Served in a flute glass. Vintage bottle (bottle date is unreadable).

Appearance: A deep gold [slight haziness], very light to no bubbles on the body which unfortunately made no head and I poured this brew pretty vigorously. I am factoring the age of the beer which I'm guessing is three years old.

Smell: Light scotch scent and that's about it.

Taste: Alright it's complex with a unique sweetness to it that makes you think of agave and scotch.

Mouth: Sticky but the carbonation is pretty much gone. Hardcore whiskey makes you think it's infused with scotch...little sweet but the flatness hinders it a bit. Granted this bottle might be slightly old so I factor that in.

Overall: Good brew, little flat which might change your mind if you can actually find a bottle. Great gift nonetheless, feels like the brew was distilled...salud!

Poured from fridge to Rockmill tulip. Warmed over an hour.

Look - hazy golden brown. Almost no carbonation.

Smell - whiskey comes through very nicely. Smells of citrus and funk are also there.

Taste - Smooth, mellow, whiskey, and some citrus. Lemon seems to come through.

Overall, this is exceptional. Very different, but outstanding. Highly recommended.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours with the thinnest layer of head which instantly dissipated and was in no way present while drinking. A sparse bubble of active carbonation shows up occasionally. The color is a muddy orange/brown, looks like a glass of apple cider.

Smell: Orange peel and booze hit on the front. Vanilla, earthy spices, and coriander comprise the body. Cloves, banana, and medium bodied fruits show up on the back end. In the end though a rather untamed alcohol heat wins out in the end.

Taste: Pears, cinnamon, toffee, and oak all greet the drinker. Plenty of boozy heat on the body drowns out some banana and cloves accents. Vanilla and some dark fruits shine on the back end with round herbal spices. The boozy punch of the body fades some on the back end to a low roar.

Mouthfeel: Lots of boozy sting. Some pleasant whiskey dryness is left behind. Carbonation of this brew just killed me, being completely non-existent.

Overall: I really do not know what to do with this brew. Red flags flew as a got a barely audible *pop* as I opened the bottle. No carbonation throughout is so odd, especially for the style. Some interesting whiskey flavors shine but there is so much booziness it burns through. This is a new brewery to my area so I'll give them another do, but this is an odd one for sure.

Thanks for the second time tonight to fiver29 for this, an extra in a recent trade. 375ML bottle split with my wife as we warm up our livers for the Great Taste.

The pour is orange pulp orange with widely scattered bubbles that number less than three score & five. The nose is bouncing around on me, elusive as an ugly redhead. Bubblegum? Belgian sugar? Tons of sweetness, but in & out. Strange.

Cask Aged Tripel is drier than Charlton Heston's powder. My mouth, my palms, my armpits, the carpet, & the toilet are all air-dried in the instant this hits my inner skin. Beyond that, it's strange. Belgian yeast, dehydrated candied sweetness form the base, but that's it for the tripel. Flippant remark of vanilla arrives late. Heavy from the lack of carbonation: half the small serving will be enough for me.

Feels like this beer has had the volume turned down to 4. Other than the dryness, it's muted, the flavors flat. My first taste of Rockmill has left me cool & indifferent. Not bad, but mediocre is a reach.
