look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Enjoyed at the dive bar on Allagash tap takeover. Poured into an Allagash tulip.

A - Poured a slightly hazy golden hue with a nice thin lacing and good creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of coffee haggle, faint barrel notes, the coffee mellowed out the aromas of the base beer. Still a quite nice aroma.

T - Taste is loads of coffee, light bourbon, light base beer but for the most part this is a glass of cold pressed coffee.

M - Mouthfeel is nice for the ABV, light carbonation, alcohol well hidden here, tremendously so.

O - Overall I was happy with this one, best of the night even if it crushed the base beer. Delicious.

From tap at the Festival. Clear gold pour with white head. Intense coffee aroma, vegetal notes but also roasty, definitely smells just like cold pressed coffee. Some light bourbony wood notes are perceptible, but barely. Very intense coffee flavor. The most peculiar part of this beer is that it has the palate of cold pressed coffee (plus carbonation), very silky mouthfeel with a long bitter aftertaste. Not my favorite beer, not sure I’d drink a pint but this is very well made.

On tap @ Prohibition Pig

A - Opaque cloudy orange/yellow with a thin film of off white head.

S - Belgian yeast, spice, coffee. Some breadiness.

T - Big coffee flavour up front. Some spice, clove, Belg yeast and coriander. Warming alcohol throughout. The coffee definitely dominates but the other flavours are noticeable as well.

M - Medium body. Dry. Light carbonation.
