Bottle, caged and corked. Murky pour of gritty orange color, opaque, a firm 1/4" topping. Nice aroma, sweet and malty. This drinks with a unique character, rich sugary and brothy. The coffee adds a nice earthiness to it, balancing off what would be a big, fruity beer, to make this a meaty goliath. Very good. (#6378, 10/23/2016)

Goodgrief (2000) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - OCT 22, 2016
On tap at 2SP Wilmington. Golden pour, bourbon on the nose. Some light fruit, honey and trippel flavors, but there’s a lot of bourbon, no lie. These styles work though. I don’t often like the bourbon barrel aged beers, but this is fine.

Pretty gold pour w/ a retaining white head & some lacing. The aroma is mainly dominated by the bourbon while the taste leans towards the coffee. It is complex & delicious! It is remarkably smooth at 10+% & scary drinkable. This is an awesome beer!

mcberko (14665) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2016
On tap at Blind Tiger, pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of coffee upfront, followed by whiskey and light candied sugar. Flavour is complex as hell in a way you’d never expect from such a description, with Belgian yeast, coffee beans, and whiskey. Boozy and burning, but not in a detracting way. Fantastic stuff.

Pours clear gold into a snifter. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Vanilla, chocolate and espresso aromas. Thin with sweet mocha and vanilla upfront warming to espresso in the lasting, sweet vanilla and bourbon finish. I wanted to like this one more...

Maine Rate #150. Belgian Strong Ale #50. Draft at Ale House earlier this afternoon. From notes. Pours golden brown with an off white head. Aroma is caramel malt, honey, coffee, whiskey, Belgian yeast. Flavor follows. Surprisingly light and easy to drink for the abv. Just like Curieaux with a hint of nutty cold brew coffee Nice.

Lightly boozy, strong coffee aroma. Hazed golden with lacy white head. Starts with a bit of coffee citrus edge then becomes a light bourbony boozy then finished with some coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
