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.

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.
