BEER INFO

Style: Belgian Dubbel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly known as "Vern". Reviews from 2011 are for the initial pilot batch (Vern) of what would become Track 11 the next year.

A experimental re-mix track, Track 12 is our Angel’s Share that we aged in fresh Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels for 9 months. To this we added some awesome whole peach slivers, black tea, and a splash of Brettanomyces Clausenni to ferment the peaches. The beer has a great peach nose and a long carmelized bourbon finish. One of the most experimental of all the track series beers.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12.7 oz bottle into Chimay goblet.

L - Cloudy mahogany pour, with little to no foam.

S - Booze soaked fruitcake, strong woody bourbon, thick malts.

T - Brown sugar and vanilla, molasses, english breakfast tea, bitterness slight fruit notes at the finish. There is a lot of different flavors hiding in here, very complex.

F - Creamy, syrupy, but suprisingly, no heat (for a barrel aged). No carbonation of note.

A smooth sipper, it has you searching for each of the flavor notes.

they must have remade this one, as i dont believe its labeled as track 11 anymore, although the artwork is the same, really cool looking bottle of beer. i was surprised to see it so dark in the glass though, hazy and sedimented and pretty unrefined looking, short head drops fast, looks more like a stout or porter than a barleywine, and i think that darker malt complexion is to the detriment of the black tea and peaches, the parts of this i really wanted to taste a little more, but its incredibly unique beer just the same. there is a distinct bourbon nose on this, lots of it, a very mature beer overall, with the wood and barrel char obvious as well. notes of molasses, raisin, cocoa, and generic fruity sweetness round it out, maybe some slight funk too, although there doesnt appear to be much of a yeast profile. booze is sharp in both aroma and flavor, no hiding it here. the peaches are subtle, more sweetness than obvious peach flavor, again lost a little to the darker malt base i think. the bourbon is strong and awesome, high quality tasting to me, and it picks up a bit of the black tea, which is less earthy and bitter than i thought it would be, more like sweet tea with what is here from the peaches. tons of body, cocoa and booze and brown sugar to finish, heavy beer, a slow sipper for sure, especially with all the sediment in the bottom of my glass. in the end this is a really cool beer, glad they remade it, otherwise i probably would have never had the pleasure, but i expected a somewhat better execution of such a great idea here, this isnt as dialed in as i am used to from these guys, and i think there is more potential here than shows up in the finished product...

Very tasty beer that will 100% put a wobble in your step. That said, it comes across as a BA barleywine without much presence of peaches or tea. The brett adds a very slight tanginess to the backend but had I not known beforehand what was in this beer, there would be zero chance I couldve guessed at the ingredients.

Modest head which settles quickly to rim bubbles. The liquid is brown with light passing through the center of the glass. It's cloudy but not overly so. Modest lacing.

Sweet candy sugar aroma. The smell is darker with a roasted (sugary) malt nose.

The flavor is similar to the smell with a stronger alcohol warming presence. The body is full but not nearly as much as the sweetness provides. The carbonation is low, enhancing the mouthfeel. The swallow and aftertaste have more warmth from the alcohol and a touch of sugar. I do not pick up on any peaches or tea.

375ml corked/caged bottle served in a snifter. Don't see a date on it. Don't remember when or where I got it.

Pours a dark, murky brown with a small head in the first glass and no head in the second glass. Little to no carbonation. Smell is barleywiney. Booze, oak, vanilla, dates. Lots of booze.

Taste is different. I get something fruity that I would probably attribute to the peaches, and the tea is quite noticeable, except that I wouldn't place it if it wasn't on the label. Booze is not nearly as prominent, and oak comes across pretty strongly in the finish. Dates definitely there.

Mouthfeel is thick, sticky, and not as flat as it looked like it would be. Overall...it's far from my favorite barleywine, but it's interesting and good.

Original box set edition.

Still. Flat. Dark brown color. Peach and tea are very present. Strong ale with caramel, toffee and bourbon. Reminds me of a cocktail from tattersall distillery. Fun beer to try!

12.7 ounce corked and caged bottle, no dating that I noticed but I'm pretty sure it's a somewhat newer release since it doesn't have Track 11 on the label. Served in a Teku glass, the beer pours a very dark brown color with about an inch tan head. Head retention is good, and there's a decent amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like vanilla, bourbon, brown sugar, black tea, caramel and molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma, with bourbon, vanilla, black tea, peach, molasses, brown sugar, raisin, oak and chocolate flavors. It's a mostly sweet tasting brew! Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and smooth with a low/moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was pretty good, hopefully I can find another bottle soon! $16.99 a bottle.
