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.

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 (5589) - 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 (5280) - 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 donít really blend perfectly. Average texture. Decent overall.
