ABUSEDGOAT (2711) - California, USA - MAY 28, 2017
Cloudy orange color with a white head that lasts. Aroma is coffee, lighter fruits, pale malt, yeast. Medium bodied, coffee flavor covers up a lot of what else is going on, virtually no barrel notes. Overpriced as are almost all Allagash beers.

jsnicholas (593) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2017
Bottle (750ml $19). Light golden with small white head. Muted aroma. Very light bourbon and some sweet fruitiness. Taste is tripel with coffee. What can say. I personally much prefer the Curieux.

obguthr (6242) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2017
Coffee, oak, slightly tart apple core nose. Cloudy amber, thick head, nice lace. Bourbon, coffee, apple core. Full body, easy carbonation. The coffee addition kind of smooths out the rough edges of the bourbon.

Oakes (17181) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
Hazy, tan, no head. This has a lot of coffee on the nose, touch of that tripel accent though it is definitely subordinated to the coffee. On the palate, the coffee again is really quite strong. The tripel lends some nice mellow phenols and a thick pale malt character. The barrel is nowhere to be found. The coffee almost seems like a cover up - the beer isnt bad at all but the coffee is really incongruous to me.
