This is the Dog House Tripel that has been aged in Jack Daniels Bourbon barrels.

Growler purchased directly from the brewery. A bit pricey for a growler.

This beer poured a nice goloden color, efvervescent, and bubbly but head reduced to virtually nothing.

This beer smells like a wet dog. There is a pronounced whiskey-vanilla scent to this beer as well. I'm not sure I like the whiskey aroma.

There is a belgian candi like candy sweetness to this beer. Notes of biscuit and a slight astringency to the finish. Whiskey like aftertaste.

With plenty of sugar this beer is deceptive with it's 9.5% ABV.

Not sure if I'm sold on the flavor of the whiskey at the end. While I did enjoy this beer, I wouldn't go out of my way to search it out.

This beer is dominated by cloves, if you are unsure of the "clove" flavor that some belgian yeast adds, this is the beer to show you.

She pours a crystal clear pale as straw yellow with minimal head.

The smell and taste are both dominated by clove. Definitely a good essence for a tripel, but this is a beer that I would have personally fermented quite a bit warmer in order to capture the true essence of the yeast, but this is definitely a nice beer.

The mouthfeel is quite impressive in that it hides the alcohol better than a ray charles hide and seek game. Very nice, with high carbonation.

I could drink this all night long and then marry a donkey in tijuana. Check it out.
