3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Mekong. Pours golden with a thin white head. Smells of wood and alcohol. The coffee notes come out more on the tongue though the blend with the triple base makes for a strange pairing. It does hide the alcohol fairly well on the tongue. Finishes clean.

Hazy golden in color.... Aroma of light coffee, bourbon, vanilla... Flavor is light roasted coffee with prevalent vanilla, bourbon... Coffee is notable throughout, still get some candi sugar and citrus, but somewhat blunted by coffee and bourbon... Nice beer, like curieux better

Bourbon barrel comes through in the aroma and right off the bat in the beginning, almost too much for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Mekong, Richmond. Pours a hazy golden orange/brown, whitish edge head and moderate lacing. Aroma is rich coffee upfront, followed by tripel complexity. Flavor is bold coffee mixed with tripel characteristics, oak, tropical fruit and vanilla. These flavor shouldn’t mix, but they do. Wow, this is unique, and I look forward to seeing it again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Mekong. Poured gold, nice head, a bit hazy. Aroma was vanilla, slight Belgian spice, sweet pale malts, and a hint of coffee. Flavor matched, with the coffee reminding me a bit of a Starbucks blonde roast. Plays oddly, But not badly, with the base barrel aged tripel. Odd, but interesting and pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a hazy golden color with a bit of head. Intense coffee that mellows out the bourbon but over powers a little.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
murky tan tea, thin white ring. Cleaning product lemon and buttery coffee nose, low acidity but metallic and fizzy. Caramel and orange sweetness cut at front by bitter coffee finish, confused by heavy carbonation, foamy. Sweet across mid, coffee drowning out banana into sticky, dark grain bread finish. Yeast all over, messy combos. Confusing.

[ Keg ][ 8oz ][ The Industry Philly ][ $7 ][ Mini Wine Glass ][ 6.7.14 ]
>> Cloudy deep orange pour, okay white foam. Nice maple bourbon nose, sticky buttery bourbon, Belgian yeast...gives it a bit of a De Dolle Stille Nacht aroma. Flashes of blonde roast coffee make this quite interesting. Taste is mild soap, harsher bitterness, sticky, mild blonde roast coffee. Fairly nice. Definitely unique.
