Corked and caged 750 mL bottle served chilled in a Raftman tulip.
Appearance: Hazy goldenrod topped by a healthy white head. High carbonation levels support the small layer of foam as the bottle was drained. Sticky fingerlike projections and sheets of foam were left on the glass.
Smell: Prominent alcohol and bourbon aromas blending in with apple/pear fruitiness and white grape juice. Peppery, powerful, and heady.
Taste: Very spicy black pepper and lively oak flavors. Sugary malts blending with boozy alcohol. Fiery and hot.
Mouthfeel: Hot and brash alcoholic feel, yet still oddly pleasant. Medium body. Lingering aftertastes of bourbon.
Drinkability: One of them "this is a beer?" kind of beers. I was skeptical of tripel + bourbon. No longer. Awesome beer that forces you to sip it slowly. Savor.
Serving type: bottle
