Pretty excited to see this on-tap at a random visit to the Farmhouse Tap in VT. Reviewed from notes.

A- Golden like Curieux, small white fizzy head with lackluster retention. Falls to foamy ring with a few legs but no true lace it seems.

S- Super laid back Jim Beam and cold brewed coffee reminds me of a nice brownie dessert.

T- Tastes like blondie brownies to me, decadent coffee on Curieux, balanced and almost silly smooth bourbon vanilla barrel feel. Most jarring color vs. taste beer ever. The coffee really makes a huge difference.

MF- Moderately thick body with high end carbonation and some alcohol warmth.

Brownie dessert feel. Coffee is intense and changes the beer a lot in a good way. The vanilla from Bourbon barrels and coffee really work well together.
