22 oz. bottle, no bottled on date present. Appealing label art. My first beer from this brewery, possibly my first barrel-aged Tripel style. Not entirely sure what to expect.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a hazed burnt sienna / golden orange body. One finger of frothy white head that doesn't stay long. Some okay sticky strands of fat lacing. No yeast particulate visible.

S - An interesting aroma: musty, earthy, & woodsy with barrel character. Any traditional Tripel aromas have been covered by the barrel aging. Pleasant & inoffensive, but fairly one dimensional with not a whole lot happening.

T - Taste follows the nose: musty, earthy, & creamy with mild notes of caramel, vanilla, & wood. Subtle fruitiness, but none of the traditional dark fruits come through.

M - Feel is smooth & slick. A creamy mouthfeel. Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Easy-drinking for the high 10.00% abv.

Overall, an interesting first offering from Sleepy Dog Brewery. Would be interesting in trying more out from these guys.

Sleepy Dog The Belly Rub -----4/5.

Expensive - $13 @ local Whole Foods. Bomber poured into a snifter. Nice color and aroma, but lacking the thick frothy head typically characteristic of the tripel style.

Not great for the style. Offensively bad for the price.

10% abv helps you forget about its shortcomings. And who doesn't like the puppy on the label. 3/5

For a barrel-aged Tripel I liked this better than Allagash Curieux.
