Bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

Odd Side certainly enjoys pushing the limits of naming/labeling. Whatever. On to the beer.

A- 1-finger, off-white, fizzy head drops all too quickly. Slightly hazed, deep golden body cleans up after the chill wears off. Medium-heavy carbonation and good stick.

S- Wow. Lots of coffee and chocolate. Weird for such a lightly colored brew. Even more powdered chocolate than coffee. Some vanilla.

T- Follows nose. Lots of chocolate and coffee with a hint of vanilla. Even more chocolate than aroma suggests. Fairly sweet. Something of a mocha with with a couple packets of sugar in the raw, or the hazelnut coffee/hot chocolate mix offered at one of our favorite breakfast spots (Wolfgang's).

M- Medium body. Maybe even slightly full considering the style and ABV. Light tingle from carbonation and hopping.

O- Goes to show flavor doesn't always follow appearance. I thought it would be a mess, but I quite enjoyed it.

I really enjoy the long-boarder porter made with coffee and this is the blond ale version. It is fantastic and they have mastered the coffee flavor but without compromising the taste of the beer. Because of the smell and mouthful was more like that of a cream ale instead of a blond ale i rated it a bit low, this doesn't take away the fact that the texture of the flavor is Superb!
