look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

poured from a bomber onto tulip glass.

the first glasses with a semi-aggresive pour yield only a momentary, thin head that dissipates into nothing. beer is crystal clear straw yellow. when i killed the bottle, the beer was hazy orange - my guess is that the bottle-conditioning settled at the bottom.

smells of whiskey character, maybe some oak, slight alcohol esters, some crisp apple scent mixed with perhaps a bit of lemon? not a strong belgian smell.

tastes of whiskey, slight oak, alcohol esters, slight crisp apple, maybe some pale malts but very very faint. mouthfeel is thin and watery.

i'm not super familiar with tripels, but this beer does not stand out to me, and at 21$ a bomber, i certainly wouldn't go for it again. the whiskey flavor is overpowering here, and the 10.5%abv is pretty prominent as well. plus the mouthfeel is nearly like watery. i consider this beer pretty forgettable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: deep amber thickly clouded and opaque; incredible foaming produced a massive head, and even the bit in the bottle foamed up considerably

S: sweet orchard fruits dried on wood; bright and perky and floral

T: sweet fruits delivered along the lines of peach and pear; subtle wood and vanilla; whiskey toast-points in a dense canopy of lush fruits and booze

F: fuzzy and smooth, tingles of spice and booze; lively and full-bodied

O: I really enjoyed this, but I tend to be a fan of barrel-aged pales, like tripels, so there's probably some bias. The tripel base for the beer shows excellent craftsmanship in the Belgian tradition, and the whiskey-barrel wood elevates the ale, lending dryness, woodsy-ness, and the hint of whiskey to this deeply rewarding beer.

Pours a hazed golden amber with basically no head. A touch of a vanilla nose. I get clear barrel influence throughout. Not a lot of whiskey to speak of really, but mild hints of it. Same degree of fruits; barely an accent. Almost a soft kind of feel to it, as if it were a liquefied fabric. I've noticed this on several other barrel aged beers as well. Anyways, this is a nice beer. A bit pricey, but well worth trying. Another good one from this brewery. Looking forward to trying the 3 others I have of theirs.

With the Belgian spirit at hand, the brewers of Rockmill brewery tinkers with the tired and true Belgian Tripel style but with an American whisky kick. Its culmination gives the palate and the mind a lot to think about.

As it opens flat, the beer's still demeanor releases a tone of sugary dough and orchard fruit upon the the nose and initial taste. Sweetened with fructose and saccharin, the estery balance comes with apricot and pear with a backdrop of apple, orange and peach.

While the flat and rusty orange beer crosses the middle, the alcohol tones form and prick right through the sweetness with is boozy spice but also with wood spices, caramel and a hearty butterscotch tone. Lightly floral early , its honey-dipped upstart develops into dry straw earthiness just before closure.

That's as the winy ale lays heavily on the tongue and palate with its absent carbonation. This allows for full saturation of boozy sweetness and gravity onto the tongue, promoting a sweeter and more savory tone, but diminishing its aromas, acidity and its lively body. Those sweet textures couple with a dense body to make the beer a sipper, and cloying at times.

Rockmill's Cask Aged Tripel is by and large a well made beer. But is utter defiance of carbonation makes its aromas heavily muted, its taste is dense and oily and its texture dull and flat. Much of that's a shame because I see the real potential in the ale through fruit, spice and vinous complexity.

750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 3/18/2012. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass, with moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pear, apricot, grape, apple, lemon, peach, clove, pepper, candi sugar, light honey, bread, herbal, oak, light vanilla, light whiskey, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt notes with light-moderate barrel presence; and good strength. Taste of big pear, apple, apricot, grape, peach, vanilla, toffee, candi sugar, oak, clove, whiskey, pepper, light honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pear, apple, apricot, lemon, peach, vanilla, toffee, oak, candi sugar, clove, pepper, herbal, bread, whiskey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and whiskey barrel flavors; with great balance of malt/yeast/barrel flavors and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick, smooth, and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome barrel aged tripel. All around great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and whiskey barrel flavors; and quite smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

Reviews seem polarized on this one, and there seems to be some batch variation, so I was skeptical to try it, but I seem to have gotten a good bottle of this.

There have been reports of gushers and totally flat bottles, so I held this one over the sink in anticipation. Fortunately, neither fate befell me, and I carefully decanted the beer into a Rockmill stemless snifter (one hell of a fragile glass). A cloudy honey-amber-colored liquid, with a finger of beige foam that receded to a thin but well-retaining layer of bubbles, leaving random coats of lacing on the glass. Tripels are not my favorite style of beer, in fact they may be my least favorite, so the nose wasn't coming off too appealing to me. Belgian yeast, fruity esters, toasted grains. Once I took a sip, the beer won me over a bit more. The whiskey was blatantly obvious, though actually quite mellow and smooth, oaky, sweet with vanilla, notes of caramel, dried fruits, honeyed bread, and a slightly herbal element. Pretty good, to my surprise. Medium body, slick mouthfeel, moderate boozy heat, and appropriate carbonation. A good and interesting brew overall.

750ml bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Light brown color with a one-finger head and light carbonation
S: Sweet with tropical fruit, light caramel, whiskey & spice
T: Matches the nose with the whiskey notes a bit more forward; doesn't quite share the depth of the nose & is a touch boozy
M: Medium+ bodied, a touch boozy, light carbonation
O: I love the local collaboration and overall this is definitely worth a try but I like the regular tripel better

Completely flat. Dense body. Honestly I'm not talking normal flat, I'm talking this is utopia flat. Bubbles compare to water.

Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, oaK, bright fruits,

Intense flavors of vanilla, oak, some fruit esters, really sweet. A lot of hot alcohol. This is a messy of over the top sugar, alcohol, and perhaps pear, but again so much over the top sugars.

Flat beer needs to be really special and this isn't there. It's just drinkable and it's too alcoholic.

This mess was 21 bucks and as much as I want to justify what I paid, this is just awful. If you had a bottle with carbonation, that could honestly make a world of difference.

No bottling date that I could find.

A: Instant gusher, overflowing two glasses that I tried to save it into. Hate that. Very very cloudy orange pour - can see mists of yeast floating around. Enormous fluffy and fizzy white head(s) since it was poured into two glasses. ;) Head fizzes out surprisingly quickly but leaves very thick and heavy chunks of lacing everywhere.

S: Heavy whiskey aroma. Sweet with lots of toffee and oak, very fragrant. Vanilla too.

T: Like the aroma, whiskey-heavy. Heavy boozy caramel and toffee. Light fruitiness, some citrus primarily I would say. A bit of spice from cloves and pepper but not much, mainly muted by the whiskey I think. Lots of oak and vanilla, especially in the finish. A little bit of lingering drying oak and spices in the aftertaste. Big and boozy and sweet in general.

M: Pretty heavy, higher carbonation and whiskey cuts it a bit but it's still hard to ignore. Pretty boozy to boot.

O: Whiskey aged tripel, a surprisingly good combination. Big malty and sweet beer for sure, not much in the way of belgian influence since the whiskey is quite strong. It works though. Quite complex and decently balanced.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - A nice huge, sticky, rocky white head and a clear, bright medium gold color.

S - Earthy funk, pears, oak, vanilla, light colored fruit, and some candy sweetness. Overall, the nose isn't that strong.

T - Whiskey, oak, pears, vanilla, slightly fruity, Belgian spice, a warming boozy finish, and a lingering oak Belgian spice and whiskey finish.

M - Vibrant but gentle carbonation and medium body.

O - A nice blend of Belgian Tripel meets whiskey oak barrel without one nuance overpowering the other. One thing about many Tripels I've had is the sweetness, this one didn't have much and I'm assuming it's due to the barrel aging that takes some of that sweet edge off. I enjoy barrel aged beers but a Belgian beer aged in whiskey barrels is an odd combo. (But it works.)

I had this in the brewery tasting room alongside the bottled version.
Sound: I could hear the CO2 forming bubbles and the head falling.
Appearance: Tawny, slightly darker than its base beer, and more red hues. Some light came through beer. The head didn't persist very long, but it was white and rocky on first pour.
Smell: Vanilla, caramel, whisky, plums, figs, burnt toast, hard candy, cream
Taste: Plums, apricots, vanilla, sweet bread, rock candy, homemade ice cream, toffee
Mouthfeel: It had a full mouthfeel without feeling syrupy or cloying. The carbonation was restrained, but appropriate for the style.
Overall: This beer matched well with the OYO whisky barrel. It was immediately evident that it was barrel aged, but the whisky and oak were complements, rather than the focus. Between the bottled and draft, the biggest difference was a creamier mouthfeel in the draft, and a more pronounced vanilla flavor and finish.

750ml bottle courtesy of RyanMcFly1985, thanks Ryan! Poured into Jackie O's snifter also from RyanMcFly1985! According to sticker on bottom of bottle- Barrel Date: 10-23-11, Bottled on: 2/13/12 (barreled for ~4 months, in bottle for ~5months)

A- Pours a translucent slightly hazy brownish godlen with about a finger of frothy bubbly head that dissipates to about a quarter finger of head. Above average carbonation of quickly rising small carbonation bubbles. Leaves some spotty lacing.

S- Bourbon, vanilla, oak, all blended together for a very pleasant smell. Slightly above average aroma strength.

T- Sweet Bourbon, vanilla, booze, caramel, some light malts + spices, and a little bit of wood. Bourbon definitely dominates the taste. Lightly sweet and definitely boozey. Sweet bourbon vanilla aftertaste that lingers for a little while.

M- Slight alcoholic burn, average carbonation, fairly smooth despite the slight alcoholic burn (which I guess isn't too bad considering the 10.5% abv).

O- This was a decent tripel, however it was dominated too much by the whiskey and wasn't balanced enough with other flavors. It had some nice vanilla notes, but the overpowering whiskey provided too much heat and an slightly overpowering sweetness. It was an interesting try, I'm glad I got to try it. Thanks again Ryan!

Pours a little fizzy beige head. Color is a hazed golden yellow.

Aroma: Very fruity with oak. Yeasty. Very muted nose. I don't get hardly anything here.

Taste: Too much whiskey mixed with some yeast, bready malts, and spice. Not a good combination in my opinion.

Mouthfeel: Warming, hot, and dry. Medium bodied with a low amount of carbonation. Ends dry.

Overall, I wasn't a very good tripel. Whiskey wasn't a good barrel for this beer. Way too dominate.

Thanks, Alex.

A - Pours a mirky orange color, off-white head, spotty lace.

S - Big whiskey nose, oak, some of the base Tripel sweetness. Pretty big and boozy, and if you like whiskey with a bit of beer, then you'd like this nose.

T - Less whiskey then the nose, but it's still def there. Oak, candied sugar sweetness (not as sweet as the regular version...thank you Lord), whisky booze, and some fruit in there as well. Alcohol is there, no doubt about it. Finish is sweet whiskey booze.

M - Medium, good carbonation, sweet creamy finish.

O - Well, this was a step up from the regular Tripel, which is good. That said, it's so damn boozy I couldn't get through my pour. If you like whiskey and sweets, then you might like this. I didn't care for it all that much.

Bottle courtesy of Eric (TurdFurgison). Served in a Kuhnhenn goblet.

A - Finger-plus of white foam that settles to a solid cap, thicker collar, and spotty lace. Hazy golden body.

S - Intense oak, whiskey, fusels, and vanilla, with some stone fruits in the periphery. The base beer seems largely overwhelmed by the barrel-aging at first, but as this warms up it gets increasingly cloying. In any case, sickening sweetness and harsh whiskey is not a particularly compelling combo.

T - The taste is better, with more of the base beer coming through. Still, it's a weird Tripel, with notes of caramel and brown sugar in addition to the stone fruits - combined with the whiskey and barrel flavors it creates a Bananas Foster kind of vibe.

M - Medium-low, yet somehow zesty, carbonation, super dry, oaky, and tannic. Medium body that seems a tad undersized considering the massive alcohol burn that lingers indefinitely on the back of the throat.

D - Well, it was better than the flat bottle of the base beer (which appeared to have a defective cork). It was pretty challenging to choke down more than a few ounces of this due to the harsh alcohol and overly saccharine flavor profile. Perhaps the first batch had more balance, because what I tried didn't really match the descriptions found in the first few reviews. Unfortunately my bottle was much closer to Spider889's F than mcallister's A+.

750 ml C&C bottle served in a Portsmouth tulip. Let's hope this tick from Alex (Masterski) is better than the base.

A: Pours a hazy gold peach with a thin white head forming on the pour. It leaves some soapy lace behind.

S: Very fruity esters in the nose and they are very sweet as well, almost like a fruit roll-up. Sweet cherry and heavy whiskey finish out the nose.

T: The whiskey is a touch harsh, but I don't mind it. It's a little hot, but the sweet caramel flavor from the barrel and the slight yeast counter acts this a little bit. The fruit smells from the nose didn't really transition to the taste.

M: Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and nice carbonation. The finish is a little hot.

O: Much better than the base beer. It still needs some time to mellow, but it was pretty solid.

Apperance: unfiltered bronze/murky yellow with a 2 inch rolling soft white head

Nose: Candy sugar, bubblegum, whisky and oak

Taste: Whiskey and oak, slightly malty with a slight taste of smoke

Mouth: Very bubbly and forward, dancing on the palate.

Overall: This is very well done, I would have liked to have seen a bit less carbonation and a bit more in the nose but other than that it was excellent.

Pears and slight apples on the nose on this one, big fruit - very nice aroma.

This beer pours out a nice dark honey, with some haze and little head. Carbonation looks to be on the low side, lacing is spotty but present.

The taste is where this beer comes to life. Immediately I get that oaken whisky flavor that the beer picked up from the barrel. All the flavor is there, but there is no alcohol burn that normally comes with it. Mid-palate all that fruit from the nose comes into play in full force and dominates the palate with pear, apple, strawberry, and other summer fruits. Honestly, I would liken it to a fruit salad. It doesn't taste like a tripel, but it's delicious!

Very low carbonation, probably due to the cask aging process, and a nice medium body. Smooth, and surprisingly not dry.

Overall this is an excellent beer. I wish it was slightly more carbonated though. Drinkability, well.. it's a sipper, something to enjoy over an hour or two at night. This beer is boasted as a Tripel, yet it has no qualities that I normally find in a tripel, and still it works very well.

A: clear, amber color with intense rocky head that is incredibly dense and thick and kept it all the way
S: pronounced oak but not over-bearing, slightly cloying and yeasty
T: WOW!, this beer is incredibly intense, deep tripel qualities, cloying with malt and yeast, balanced by a strong taste of oak, a bit dialed back on oak would bring out the tripel qualities a bit more, amazing beer, and there is really none like it
M: rounded, full, cloying, oak adds an amazing element, a bit hot in finish

Pours extremely hazy, orange. The head is out of control; the cork shot out & hit our vaulted ceiling. It took a while for it to settle down enough to drink it.
Smells earthy, whisky, a little belgian yeast, hints of citrus.
Taste is very complex. Almost bready with vanilla, citrus, honey. The booze is impossible to miss, a little too present for me (in alcohol taste, not the whisky taste itself).
Not super smooth, but very rich feel, kind of reminded me of eating a pear. Lots of sediment by the end.
Overall it was enjoyable, but I don't think I'd go out of my way to pick up another one (especially with that price tag on it).

Live review of a 750mL bottle of this one.
A: Unstoppable white head. Nice cloudy amber body. Great.
S: Apples. Just like juicy mild apples with yeast, honey, and overall fruity character (distant cranberry). I've had the whiskey this is aged in, but it plays such a subtle, congealed role in the beer that it is hard to really describe.
T: Great apple and bread character, nice mild whiskey FLAVOR. Not burning heat, but just a really mellow character in the finish. "Cask" is the right word on the label; it does taste like "cask" aged and not "barrel" aged. It has that subtle aged wood character to it. Overall, it's really intricate in a really good way. It reminds me a lot of an ice wine or sweeter white wine.
M: It starts off simple, slowly developing a strong creamy carbonation and then crisps with the alcohol, leaving a bubbly sensation.
O: This goes above and beyond my expectations.

Edit: Thinking about it, it is kind of like biting a fresh pear. Especially in the taste and mouth feel. By the way, I think this will be the best under-the-RADAR beer I will have, period.

Really as good as head can get (in beer thinking that is). Deep amber and unfiltered, completely opaque. The head is rich, silky, thick, holds great retention and leaves thick sticky cascading lace behind.

Nice aromas. Honey suckle, clove, bubblegum, fruity yeasty esters, oak with a hint of whiskey. Earthy with an almost chardonnay like aroma. Pear, apple, butterscotch. Very nice.

Wow this is a killer beer. Mouthfeel is superb, rich, creamy, viscous texture and very soft on the palate.

Clover honey, bubblegum, plantain, the barrel aging ads a great woodsy character, wood tannins, vanilla, oak, toasted coconut, fig, apple, pear, quince, hints of fig. Light nutmeg, and tarragon. Lots going on. Too bad is so damned expensive.

750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a DFH Signature Glass, the beer pours a very cloudy golden/orange color with a huge frothy off-white head. There's also a good amount of lacing. The bottle was a slow gusher when I opened it, and the head on this brew continued to grow after first pouring it into the glass. It took a little while for the brew to settle down before I started drinking it. Aroma is mostly fruity, the brew smells like pears, peaches, whiskey, peppery spice, honey, and some tropical fruit. It tastes like pears, yeast, peppery spice, whiskey, honey, and a bit of apple and toasted coconut. The whiskey flavor is quite smooth and works well with this beer. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's a bit slick and syrupy, and it has high but soft carbonation. It's also easy enough to drink. The barrel aging sure hasn't hurt the Tripel at all. I'm a big fan of the regular Tripel, and I really like this Cask Aged version too! Hopefully Rockmill will decide to make another batch of this sometime in the future.

Served from a bottle into a tasting glass as the tripel in a double, tripel, quad tasting at Ale, Wine and Spirits in Powell, OH. (Thanks, Kevin!)

A - Pour was a hazy yellow/orange with a decent frothy head (more an issue with the glass than the beer).

S - There's no mistaking the whiskey aging; which in my opinion is never a bad thing!. Once the whiskey aroma passes, you get the hints of fruits like oranges, pears and some peaches.

T - Again, the whiskey definitely comes on first, but passes quickly. There's no heat from the whiskey, but you can't misinterpret the taste. The finish is sweet from the different combos of fruits. This is an insanely well balanced beer.

M - Like other whiskey or bourbon barrel-aged brews, this one is syrupy. I know the bottle calls it a tripel, but it's unlike any other tripel I've had. So smooth and syrupy.

O - Best tripel I've had, hands down. This guy is in my top 5 beers. Such a great surprise, and to make it even better, it's a local brew. There's no doubt this is an A+. Keep up the great work, Rockmill!

Served from the bottle into a snifter at Greenhouse Tavern

A- Poured a hazy orange color with creamy head that left a little lace

S- Huge aroma of tangerine, peach, tropical fruit, whiskey, viognier wine aroma. This smells amazing.

T- Huge flavors, tangerine, viognier, whiskey, peach, tropical fruit, and orange citrus

M- More syrupy, fuller bodied, soft mouthfeel, not as carbonated as the regular tripel

O- An amazing tasting tripel with great wine and whiskey characteristics. So complex, aromatic, and delicious. An amazing beer that tasted very different than their excellent regular tripel.
