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.

Straight coffee and light chocolate with a light base. Amazing beer.

Appearance: Hazy straw colored with a super creamy head that never quite went away. Left absurd amounts of lacing all the way down.

Smell: Mostly rich coffee smell, not what you’d expect based on the color alone.

Taste: Wow! This tastes like a mix between a stout and a latte. Big time coffee is really distinct up front, into a creamy sweet taste. Slightly bitter and bready throughout.

Mouthfeel: Super creamy! This is what I want in a milk stout.

Overall: Excellent and unique! All aspects are enjoyable on their own, and they come together perfectly.

not too many beers like this one out there, wow. a white stout, coffee heavy, and as full bodied as any dark example of the style. it looks golden in color, nothing stout about it in the traditional sense. the nose smells like a stout though, with deeply roasted coffee filling in for the dark unmalted roasted barley. oats give it body and combined with the lactose, a nice sweetness that runs through it to balance the coffee out. the coffee is cool in the flavor, sweetened up by the lactose its almost like a shot of cream in a cup of drip, except the beer is blonde. i get bakers chocolate and vanilla in here, even a touch of honey in the finish. eyes closed it would be hard to tell this was pale. the coffee is more earthy and bitter than we normally think of coffee as a flavor, which works really well here, a unique substitute for dark grain. there is a ton of body and a very creamy mouthfeel, but enough carbonation to make it drinkable. this is one of the most interesting beers ive ever had, and i absolutely love it. as good as any of the hoppy stuff from noble, what a rare treat this is. unlike anything else out there that i am aware of, and an absolute must try.
