3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Barcade. Very little coffee influence. Mid orange pour. Big, yeasty nose, a little vanilla latte. Full, mid-sweet body, oak, bubblegum, with coffee in the midbody. Surprisingly quaffable. Coffee is light but balanced.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Churchkey. Pours a hazy straw, small bubbly head. Nose and flavor are strange and don’t quite work with me, with strange coffee notes interfering with the Curieux concept of barrel-aged tripel. The lovely combination of bread, stone fruit, and tannins are masked by a bitter espresso character. Not a fan.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Churchkey. Murky orange gold color, small white edge head, solid lacing. Aroma of intense freshly roasted coffee beans. Taste is smooth coffee, vanilla, straw, pineapple. Coffee and whiskey, and interesting mix.
