Incredible brew. Tasted this on tap during SF beer week at the Willows.
I had never tasted a light-hued beer with coffee flavor before, and this one was outstanding. At first smell, I noted a pure, balanced, coffee aroma that wasn't overpowering. The taste was smooth and light, but rich in flavor that mixed the best qualities of a Belgian and a coffee porter. Excellent balance, smooth finish, and pleasant aftertaste. Thoroughly impressed. I tried a bunch of Allagash offerings tonight and this one was the cream of the crop.

Peanut butter! Thats what I taste and I love it. The mouthfeel is amazing smooth it works with the flavor great.
Also flavors of oak and rum and citrus fruits. Great combination and an excellent example of american brewing ingenuity.

On tap at Three Penny's in Montpelier, VT. 5/22/14.
This beer is extremely drinkable for such a high ABV beer. The alcohol did not come through, and I could not drink it more quickly because it tasted so freaking great. It pours a rich amber color, which decries the nose and palate, as the beer has such a strong coffee flavor. It may not be something that a traditional Belgian style ale enthusiast enjoys, but the coffee marries so well with the Belgian flavor profile. Coffee is star here, and it is done so well.
