Pours a crystal clear golden with a thin collar of white head. The aroma is immediately and onslaught of bourbon. Straight bourbon. Heavy boozy notes, tons of oak, and no detectable tripel characteristics. As the beer warms, some malts get coaxed out of the nose. Mild caramel and candi sugar is present. The taste presents a little more balance with a heavy presence of bourbon. The bourbon brings nice notes of vanilla and oak with minimal heat. The base beer isn't easily identifiable, but subtle notes of Belgian yeast and clove are there when they are searched for. Mouthfeel is well carbonated with a seemingly light body considering the high abv. A tastey beer for sure with heavy bourbon, I guess my main criticism is the lack of balance. For some that is a good thing. I like me a bourbon bomb, but I at least want to taste the base beer.
