Thanks to UcDru for another nice Ohio beer

Pours like no-pulp orange juice, with a thin white cap that scrams and leave a small island and lasting ring. Quite turbid.


Med. strength aroma, rounded tart, apple, candi, hints of citrus, sourdough bread, floral.

Yeast is more prominent in the sip, but all the flavors of the aroma are here, with candi sweet and fruit following closely. sip closes with hints of alcohol and a bit of oaky liquor joining floral and tart fruit notes. As it warms some herbal bitter joins in. Sort of a muddled mix of unbalanced flavors here, not really all that tasty for sure..

Low carb., even for style, a bit too thick in the mouth, with a finish that is less than optimal, as it picks up some sweetart as it gets to prime drinking temp.

I think this one could stand an upgrade, but glad I got to try it.

Finally opened a my bottle of cask aged Tripel from rockmill. Was able to avoid the large settlement that caked the bottom of the bottle. The nose is subtle but there are hints of bourbon/whiskey. The taste is twangy on the front but settles into a nice bourbon/whiskey finish. This is a big one.....sipping only for me.

Poured into a lager glass with no head or real signs of carbonation. Smells of citrus and whisky are nice. Taste of whisky overpowers any fruitiness possibly because of the lack of carbonation. Very disappointed as this beer had a very high price point so I expected better. Would be interested in trying a fully carbonated bottle.

Served in a flute glass. Vintage bottle (bottle date is unreadable).

Appearance: A deep gold [slight haziness], very light to no bubbles on the body which unfortunately made no head and I poured this brew pretty vigorously. I am factoring the age of the beer which I'm guessing is three years old.

Smell: Light scotch scent and that's about it.

Taste: Alright it's complex with a unique sweetness to it that makes you think of agave and scotch.

Mouth: Sticky but the carbonation is pretty much gone. Hardcore whiskey makes you think it's infused with scotch...little sweet but the flatness hinders it a bit. Granted this bottle might be slightly old so I factor that in.

Overall: Good brew, little flat which might change your mind if you can actually find a bottle. Great gift nonetheless, feels like the brew was distilled...salud!

Poured from fridge to Rockmill tulip. Warmed over an hour.

Look - hazy golden brown. Almost no carbonation.

Smell - whiskey comes through very nicely. Smells of citrus and funk are also there.

Taste - Smooth, mellow, whiskey, and some citrus. Lemon seems to come through.

Overall, this is exceptional. Very different, but outstanding. Highly recommended.
