On tap at the Library Alehouse in Santa Monica. Hazy yellow appearance with a white head and thin lacing. Aroma of light coffee, Belgian notes, oak, vanilla, a touch of fruity esters and a hint of bourbon. Similar flavor, adding a light herbal-like bitterness over a medium body. Pretty nice overall.

Cybercat (5828) - Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Pours slightly hazy golden with a fine-bubbled ivory head. Aroma is not strong, but promises with fruity and subtle hoppy-hay notes. Bold flavor has fruity, bourbon and coffee tones with a malty under-note. Sharp mouthfeel delights with firm body and robust fizz. Jimmy Bean - James Bean!

vyvvy (6460) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2015 - Pours hazy yellow with a huge white head. The aroma has coffee, cocoa nibs, rich tripel malt and minor boubon. It has a medium / full body with soft carbonation. The flavor has lots of coffee, chocolate and lots of smooth rich malt with the abbey ale slant. Rich and delicious.

A strange combo of a traditional Belgian and coffee flavors. Liked it, but don’t think I could do too much of that one.

Draft at Parker Pie. Hazy golden. Aroma of coffee and bourbon, some yeast as well. Flavours are candy sugar, light roast coffee, oak and some bourbon heat. Really interesting combination on a style i’ve certainly never seen before.
