Notes/Commercial Description:
Golden Milk Stout infused with 3 pounds per barrel of Guatemalen coffee. Head Brewer Evan Price worked together with Roast Master Jeff Duggan from Portola Coffee Lab to create a truly unique drinking experience. Stout with oats and lactose (milk sugar), coffee instead of roasted grain.

This uses different coffee than Don's Naughty Sauce, which uses Portola Don Pachi Coffee and was a collaboration with Playground DTSA.

Nitro

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Hazed and cloudy dark, burnt golden with a thick, incredibly persistent, creamy head. Leaves the glass messy with rings of stick. Very pretty, and I've never had a golden milk stout before--this is a first.

Lots of freshly ground coffee in the aroma, some nut elements, and a honey sweetness. Usually, I'm a big critic of mixing coffee and honey aromas/flavors/elements, but it works really nicely here.

The flavor follows the aroma, with lots of freshly-ground coffee flavors, honey sweetness, mild assorted roast, and a bit of citrus/honey hop character as well. Incredibly drinkable. Very impressive.

Medium bodied with creamy carbonation--no surprise given the serving style.

A fantastically surprising beer. Will drink again!

Had on tap at the Bruery Sucreversary party at the Phoenix Club.

Man, this thing is a pure coffee bomb. The nose on this thing is like sticking your face into a bag of fresh ground coffee. Being a coffee freak, it was awesome.

The taste is the same. Coffee goodness. I really enjoyed it. I went back for seconds and then the keg blew.

If you 'like' coffee, this isn't for you. If you are a coffee freak, this is for you.

This was for me.
