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.
