4.2/5  rDev +15.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle acquired in trade with NeroFiddled, pours a cloudy orangish-yellow with a small white head that dissapates quickly. Smell is intruiging, a combination of molasses, grassy hops and a hint of diacetyl, plus the vanilla and oaky smell from the aging. Taste begins with an apricot-like fruit flavor, then a spicy corriander taste, followed by a vanilla/oaky/bourbon flavor then a bready malt flavor with a biting alcohol finish. This is my first tripel, so i have no basis for comparisson but this beer was pretty good. The flavor is complex and you can detect the oak aging and i think it really add's to the beer's flavor. Overall a good beer, but the alcohol is slightly too apparent .

Bottle sent by tobelerone, poured into a mug.

Murky caramel-brown, like dirty water. One finger of fizzy, sand-colored head is constantly replenished by bubbles from below.

A lot of the sherry/honey oxidation in the nose. Caramel, a little pear, some vanilla and oak.

A lot tangier in the flavor — maybe some brett and tartness. Pear, green apple, oxidized honey, caramel, a good amount of bourbon. Vanilla and toffee linger into the finish.

Soft medium body with mild massaging carbonation. A little blast of heat comes through the nose upon the swallow.

Prophecy is a weird beer, delivering an unexpected blend of flavors. Weird, but not bad. This bottle was a little old and oxidized, but I still enjoyed it.

golden yellow, the haziness of it only served to magnify the shine it gave off. Some light sediment in the bottle, but that was from me, as I like it. A towering head of white foam at least four inches high,

Lots of grains here with a touch of yeast in the aroma. Light banana and lemon. touches of grass and even the slightest bit of grape. light, and full of flavor, light notes of yeast and wheat, some light fruit backed in as well. Nice hints of peach and a touch of wine like alcohol, but very light and more of a subtle nice surprise then anything else. The flavor was good, and at times effortless. The finish was dry; almost a champagne like dryness to it with a long lasting flavor of grass

2005 vintage.

Pours a hazy, golden orange with a 1-finger, off-white head that quickly falls to a cover. Contains a lot of floaties.

The smell is honey, a bit of alcohol and just a hint of oak.

The taste is white wine-like with noticeable alcohol, some bourbon, honey and a sharpness on the tip of my tongue that may be due to the alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium to full with adequate carbonation with a slightly dry finish.

Overall: Probably past it's prime by a year or two. There is some bourbon and maybe, some oak but most every thing has mellowed and blended except for the alcohol. Guess I'm a little surprised at the alcohol presence after so long.

Pours a solid/bright golden color with a two finger white head. The head dissipated pretty rapidly, which is expected because of the ABV.

Aromas of honey and sweet malts, some Beligan yeats notes as well. The oakiness is barely present. Smells a little like white grape wine.

The taste starts off with some sugary/white white flavors but then the alcohol shows up a little. Finishes with a little more honey sweetness. I think this beer is good but a little too much like a white white and the flavors dont totally work together and seem to fight with one another.

Beer starts out thick and solid and still finishes fairly dry because of the oak aging presumabley. Definitely a sipper, kinda hard to finish actually.

This is a weak example of a summer, after-dinner, sitting around sort of beer.
