3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Boo-yeah! Numero quatro! Soft pale blonde pour. Nose shows coffee (lots o’ coffee) and a touch of bourbon with lightly fruity notes showing in the background. Coffee is definitely there in the flavor with a touch of bourbon and white fruit. Coffee definitely the primary flavor here but I really enjoyed this one.
Side note: At this point 4 people have rate this beer and 2 were from Church Key and 2 were from Raleigh Rare Beer Fest. At each location one person rated the beer a 3 and one person rated the beer a 3.8.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at rrbf. Pours a hazy orange golden with a small fizzy white head. Nose is strong coffee, lightly bitter, toned down bourbon, some fruity notes. Flavor is similar and very one-demensional with the simple coffee notes overpowering everything. Kind of a letdown for Allagash.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is smooth coffee, hazelnuts. The appearance is slightly hazy yellow/orange, white head. The flavor is strongly coffee, hazelnut. The finish is just like the flavor. I couldn’t get past the coffee or the hazelnut flavors to find anything else. Still, I enjoyed this.

Taste is sweet with light coffee, peanut butter and caramel. Smooth, creamy body. Coffee, nutty overtones. hardly any belgian flavors to speak of. Odd but good.
