Glowing honey gold with a healthy finger of soapy whiteness on top that retains for a few minutes before forming a neat collar. Body is mildly active.
Wow... never smelled anything like this before. Vanilla, toffee, clove, leather, cookies, a bit of heat if you really snort for it, mushy grapes and figs. Smells darker than it looks... raisins... pineapple? All over the place.
Musty oak with a sweet bourbon that envelopes an otherwise clean tripel profile. There's that wheaty yeast and cereal malt that you might find in Chimay white or Karmeliat but then there's this mellow bourbon barrel contribution that really transforms this into something unique.
