3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden blond pour with a massive head. Coffee aroma, and tart yeasty smell. Taste is light coffee, some candy sugars, some floral hops. Interesting, but not spectacular.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml green glass bottle with silver grey wax, thanks to DanielCoor for sharing! Half hazy golden orange color. Good thin off-white head, although lace doesn’t really stick. Nice coffee aroma in the nose, some banana, light spicy belgian aromas, belgian yeast. Satisfying amount of coffee, and nice banana belgian type fruitiness. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of chewy lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Hides 9% alcohol very well, drinks like 7%.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml capped and waxed bottle 450/1200 shared with Fast & Aggressive in my sweet new Duvel tulips! Murky orange brown, big frothy off-white head settles leaving a lasting swirl of film. Aroma is fruity, peach and apricot, musty, yeasty. Bam! Full pull espresso taste on the tongue initially, with a spicy, yeasty, citrus fruity strong Belgian Ale lurking behind. Lively carbonation, light-medium body, lightly hopped. ABV gets more noticeable towards the finish. Unique and enjoyable, 1-N-Dun. Shadoobie, shattered, shattered. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours gold with white head. Aromas of slight fruit and spices. Flavors that don’t provide much of a profile for my palate. I was disappointed with this beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(750ml bottle) Purchased at The Strath for ~$12. Pours a huge frothy white head atop a clouded golden brown boys. Nose is fairly bright and yeasty. Good fruity front, some 7-Up and graham wafers. Highly biscuit and lemony citrus. Lasting carbonation on the tongue.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy gold with a big white head. Aroma is grain, lemon, yeast, little bit of espresso. Full bodied, lots of carbonation. The alcohol comes through a bit. The coffee is light and doesn’t really come through that much. Love the idea, and I’d try it again if they re-did it, but this one is a little messy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle capped with wax coating over the top pours a hazy golden orange color with a huge white head that leaves almost no lacing. Aroma is citrus and spices and yeast with a slight trace of coffee. Taste is a lemon tartness with a bold spicy hop bitterness and an underlying fruity and grainy malt sweetness. Could barely detect any coffee, but it was there. This is one of the best and most unique brews I have sampled in a long while. Flavours are well balanced, body is good and carbonation is decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Hazy amber with thick, foamy white head. Espresso, yeast, peach, dried fruit. Lots of everything: sweet malt, bitter coffee, funky hops. Full, rounded mouthfeel. Tasty and entirely unique. I’m very impressed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprisingly this works. Pours blond but smells like mad espresso. Never seen espresso with this kind of blond Belgian, but it comes together. The floral aroma comes together with the coffee. Pours blond with good head and lacing but finishes a little bitter. On tap at Alibi Room.
