On tap at the Common Table's 2nd anniversary party.

The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma is unmistakable. I get a ton of coffee, as well as a hint of roasted malt. The flavor is more of the same, with some coffee and some assorted spices which I assume come from the Belgian yeast. There is also a lot of the dark fruit which you typically associate with Belgian dubbels, as well as some caramel and toffee malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

From my tasting notes: Coffee brews are generally saved for the stouts and porters as their natural flavor profiles blend well with the richness of a coffee flavor. Trying this with a Belgian Abbey just seems like pure genius! This beer looked like coffee, smelled like coffee, and even tasted like coffee. I have read elsewhere that the Jittery Monk is made with cold pressed coffee by Kahona Coffee which is a local roaster. The coffee excellently balanced and accentuated the Belgian Abbey flavors that blended together to create a smooth creamy brew with no burnt bitterness and no fuss. This is an extremely complex and understated beer. This has to be my favorite Thirsty Planet brew and I hope they continue to produce it as I would love to keep drinking it.
