Draft at Mudville 9 NYC . Light tan color. Easy drinking with a boozy taste and finish. This is a light sipper ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JAN 27, 2015
On tap @ SLL. Pours a cloudy copper color with a foamy white head that settles to a thin film and leaves lots of lace. Smell is of malt, grain, caramel, toffee, honey, coffee bean, and yeast aromas. Tastes of caramel, toffee, coffee bean, vanilla, and slight bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate. Has a nice coffee presence but it is somewhat muted against the barrel aged qualities. Has a moderate level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
On tap @ Yard House. Slightly hazed golden orange pour with a white head. Lots of coffee and condensed milk on the nose. A bit of banana and lots off caramel. Some orange peel ones through as well. The flavor is pretty sweet. A bunch of coffee, cream, some coriander spiciness, and orange. Hints of booze and bourbon, maybe a little vanilla. Not bad.

Aromas of apples and stonefruit, subtle clean coffee, honey, toasted coconut, vanilla. Hazy orange with a mostly lasting pillowy white head. Fruity, bready, subtle clove, aftertaste is faint coffee. Medium bodied. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Pours an opaque yellow color with a coffee aroma. Taste is rich coffee flavor which is surprising because of its light apperance. A slight bourbon tinge on the palate after the swallow. The coffee flavor overwhelms this beer and is flavorful and tasty. A d elicous beer for the style, unique with the coffee taste.

Draft at Mekong. Pours golden with a thin white head. Smells of wood and alcohol. The coffee notes come out more on the tongue though the blend with the triple base makes for a strange pairing. It does hide the alcohol fairly well on the tongue. Finishes clean. nearbeer (5563) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 15, 2014
10 on on tap at Tyler’s, Durham. Hazy orange golden with a lasting film of cream. Nose is whiskey, caramel, charred oak. Taste is the same goodness. Medium body has low-medium carbonation.
