Draft at the brewery, 7/26/16. Golden-orange. Big coffee and booze aroma. Caramel and bournon. Similar flavor. Full bodied and fairly hot. Nice sipper. You can taste the ABV on this one for sure.

slowrunner77 (9942) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Looks like Curieux, perhaps a touch darker with less head. Still complex, but the flavors of the base are muted...fruity Belgian, bourbon and vanilla. Coffee up front in the nose and palate, not overdone. A lil sweet. Tasty brew.

dmac (5472) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Draft at Arlington. Poured a hazed orangey amber with a foamy white head. Aroma of cold coffee, barrel, hint of bourbon, chocolate, toast. Flavor is a litle more bourbny along with some grains. Fuller body, heat throughlut but just average lingering on the aftertaste itself.

jkwood04 (5260) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 28, 2016
750ml bottle in a plastic cup. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of coffee, some light bourbon and oak, pale and caramel malts, and some light notes of Belgian yeast. Flavor the same with a decent blend. The sweet beer and coffee and (light) bourbon barrel notes don’t really blend perfectly. Average texture. Decent overall.

750 cc from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy copper with fluffy, white head. Nose is coffee, florals, malt, yeast. Tastes floral, hoppy, with notes of coffee, yeast, and some spice. Complex finish.

On tap at the brewery. Pours orange with fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, vanilla and coffee. Body is full and slightly crisp. Alcohol, caramel malt, bourbon, vanilla and coffee fill the mouth. Finish is long and peppery. Very nice brew.

Zymurgeist2 (1784) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Tap at Harry’s Hofbrau in San Jose. Coffee grinds dominate aroma. Hazy golden-orange with moderate white head that lingers as a creamy ring. Taste is astringent coffee and baker’s chocolate. Thinish mouthfeel.
