Served On-Tap

A — Pours a lightly pale golden color into the glass. There is excellent clarity and a pillowy white head atop the beer. Substantial lacing left behind is somewhat spotty and inconsistent.

S — Smells of lightly sweet malts and a bit of bitter coffee, almost like green coffee, not a lot of roasted or charred component here.

T — Taste is of a light golden ale, really quite refreshing, as it warms there is a nice coffee component to it as well. Nice balance of sweetness as well.

M — Light in body, there is enough carbonation to keep this crisp and clean.

O — Good beer here, not sure that it's a stout, a little bit light, but still a nice light coffee ale. (694 characters)

Try not to go into this one with too many expectations. It looks like a light blonde ale, smells like iced coffee, and tastes like a really good coffee toddy. It's hard to communicate how little sense it makes until you try it.

The end result is an ready drinking coffee beer, that's week suited for any time of year. it'slight and fresh enough to make a good summer beer, but with the robust taste you'd want in a winter warmer.

Scoring this one was little tricky tough. On one hand, the appearance isn't great. It looks like a glass of Coors. But half the fun is that a beer that looks so mundane tastes so unexpected. So it looks like a 2, at first. But take one sip, and all you can do is stare at it and try to figure out how the hell they made it. (755 characters)

On tap at the Barrel House.

A: Golden color with a thin white lacing. Semi-transparent. It certainly looks like a blonde ale, so it summons up different expectations.

N: Lots of coffee in the nose. Roasted malt and a rye grain. Sweet whipped cream and a healthy dose of pine from the hops. Nothing overly complex, but it works.

T: Very much like a stout. Roast with a moderate amount of bitterness and a good amount of sweetness to round things out. Straightforward.

M: Dry with a rounded mouthfeel.

O: A fascinating concept and a solid execution. I wouldn’t drink this all day and every day, but I can certainly appreciate how it was pulled off. (668 characters)
