Left Coast Brewing Company Barrel-Aged Asylum

“As in the aroma, so in the flavor—so much barrel! And what a beautiful use of a barrel—there is enough sweetness to balance the intense vanilla, coconut, chocolate, and light coffee, but that overpowers the tripel-ness. Some nice orange, with spicy hops character and peppery phenolics underneath. Nice carbonation with strong alcohol warmth.”
