Cybercat (4167) - Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Pours slightly hazy golden with a fine-bubbled ivory head. Aroma is not strong, but promises with fruity and subtle hoppy-hay notes. Bold flavor has fruity, bourbon and coffee tones with a malty under-note. Sharp mouthfeel delights with firm body and robust fizz. Jimmy Bean - James Bean!

vyvvy (4777) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2015 - Pours hazy yellow with a huge white head. The aroma has coffee, cocoa nibs, rich tripel malt and minor boubon. It has a medium / full body with soft carbonation. The flavor has lots of coffee, chocolate and lots of smooth rich malt with the abbey ale slant. Rich and delicious.

A strange combo of a traditional Belgian and coffee flavors. Liked it, but don’t think I could do too much of that one.

Draft at Frisco Tap House in Columbia, MD served in a goblet; cloudy light-coppered golden color with white head. Aroma notes of wood, cappuccino, pale malt sweetness, light spices and vanilla. Taste adds dark coffee, sugar sweetness, oak char, fruity hops and Belgian yeast. Heavy-medium body, low carbonation, creamy, dry with woody sweet coffee finish. Interesting sipper, need to try the base to compare.
