Draught at Breukelen Bier merchants. Pours golden with a nice soft initial head. Aroma is lots of coffee, chocolate Bourbon, molasses, light yeast, fruity end. Flavor has these but Belgian yeast and orchard fruit notes. Feel is thick. Really surprising how well it all works together.

Draft sampled at The Bad Apple, Chicago. Pours clear dark golden with an off white head. Aroma of coffee upfront, suprising given the color, behind is the bourbon/vanilla with booze, toffee and caramel. Flavour is heavy sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Draft at 2sp..medium orange color.slight ring like head..nose dominated by the bourbon jim beam characteristics..not getting much coffee on the nose..mouthfeel is quite smooth with a roasty nut like presence..this tastes like a love child of a Belgian triple with a Caribbean like coffee stout..medium bodied finish and the heat from the booze is felt.glad to try but just seemed like an odd addition to the normal curiuex..eh....revisited really nice offering chock full of flavor..

Looks like a regular blond tripel, has some coffee to the nose. Taste is exactly like a frappucino...coffee, chocolate, vanilla, with a good mouthfeel and moderate finish. Really good.

Big coffee flavor up front. Some spice, clove, Belg yeast and coriander. Warming alcohol throughout. The coffee definitely dominates but the other flavors are noticeable as well.

10oz pour at Bangers and lace. Unexpected coffee from a golden begian strong ale. It pours a hazy golden with a small beige head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, fresh pressed coffee and some dry crackery malts. Flavor brings out coffee even more and some wild yeast notes, Belgian yeast and some floral notes. Very smooth and light for the ABV. Finishes on dry-ish notes of coffee and Belgian yeast. Great stuff.
