Perfectly fine one finger head of light tan to eggshell white color, even surface, dissipates at a steady clip, thin sheet of lacing like iron mail, sinks slowly downwards. Clear coppery brown color, good amount of larger bubbles but they are dispersed like snowflakes, fresh in appearance. The vanilla, molasses and caramel oak comes through clearly in the nose, almost peaty at times, marshmallow and licorice, nutty, for its scale quite relaxed nostril presence and no burn, the fig, date, apricot to pear scents full yet not overpoweringly so. Medium-bodied and smoother, more fluid than one might expect from the beer style, strides well without the saccharine sugariness which would slow it down. Smokier here with more barrel toast, molasses and butterscotch but also notes of dill as well. Again, not excessively sweet and the fig, apple, pear, apricot fruit has good snap. Plenty of vanillin residue at the end and a mild floral lift even as it ends on a bitterly nutty note. Perhaps lacks a signature punctuation mark but by the same token if there’s such a thing as a “sessionable” Tripel, this would be on the short list.

Poured into a large tulip glass a clear rich auburn color with a sticky full finger head atop that left a few broken chunks of lace behind as it settled.Big bourbon/vanilla hit ya in the nose along with some booze,and mild phenols.Pretty sweet on the palate with vanilla and spiced yeast notes,it's quite boozy after a bit,I wouldn't say hot but boozy.Not bad but maybe a bit heavy handed in the bourbon/vanilla department....in my opinion.
