The beer poured a clear gold color without any head.
Coffee aroma. Some sweet fruit.
Strong coffee up front, then a bit of milk chocolate, with some pear at the end.
Incredibly smooth, with no note of the alcohol.
Loved it.

Interesting idea. I've had a few coffee IPAs really recently that are definitely love em or hate ems - but at least I could tell they were IPAs - with coffee. No way could I guess this beer is a Tripel. It's just boozy coffee. Not a horrible beer but I feel the praise here is unwarranted. Your mileage may differ. Cheers!

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Served in a short pint.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange. Fluffy white head that leaves thick foam dripping down the inside of the glass.

Smell - Bourbon, vanilla, and oak. Some coffee. Lighter malts give it a fruitiness. Even some citrus.

Taste - Strange grain flavor that really blends quite well with the bourbon and coffee. Grainy, sweet, but not heavy or sugary. Belgian yeast in the finish with some oak.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Well carbonated.

Overall - More interesting than I expected. It's good because of the adjuncts, but the tripel is pretty lost there.
