5/5 rDev +17.1%
A- This beer is cloudy with a dark golden brown color.
S- It has a very pleasant smell. Not overbearing and not too sweet, and a little sour.
T- The taste is very balanced with a slightly sour taste. Very smooth vanilla and coconut start with a Bourbon finish.
MF- Moderately carbonated with excellent texture and great consistency in flavor.
O- Honestly, this is one of the most balanced beers I have ever had. The qualities in this beer are perfect. It is not lacking in any category. At $24 a bottle, the experience is definitely worth it. I find this to be one of the absolute best beers I have ever had. Enjoy slightly chilled for better flavor.

4.5/5 rDev +5.4%
Shared 5-way with family, poured into the Allagash coolship chalice
A: Beautiful golden trippel color with some floaties near the end of the bottle. Slightly hazy with big puffy white head. Lacing and retention outstanding.
S: White pepper, yeasty dough and brediness with a slight tang of barrel.
T: Everything in the nose, except the tang on the nose is muted on the taste. Imperceptible metallic note on warming as well.
M: Impossibly light for a barrel aged beer. Perfectly dry finish. Vapors fuel heat sensation, but it is expected for an 11% ale.
O: I would have this on a semi-regular basis if possible. Just outstanding.
