Inspired by brunch Armadillo Ale Works adds maple syrup, cocoa nibs, vanilla, coffee and lactose sugar to the base golden ale that has flaked barley and oats and a hint of honey and caramel malts. This all adds up to a dynamic drinking experience that is truly Brunch in a bottle. The beer poured a light copper with a small tan head that disappeared quickly. The aroma has a vanilla and maple sweetness intertwined with coffee that can trick you into thinking stout. The taste hits you with an initial coffee roast followed immediately by the sweet vanilla and maple sugar that is boosted by the lactose sugar. The cocoa lingers on the back end and coats your palate with a pleasant bitterness. This beer truly takes your taste buds on a ride. It may seem like a lot but the parts equal a tantalizing whole that was surprisingly drinkable given the high ABV.

Per the label it looks like someone is tinkering around in someone else's lab with this "stout-inspired golden ale"? I don't know what exactly to make of all that, but I will very soon.

Pours dull amber with miniscule froth. Smells of espresso, vanilla and various fruits including peaches and persimmon. Tastes of sweet bread, coffee and a side of fruit. Medium-bodied and creamy.

Pretty much like brunch in a glass, and works a helluva lot better than I expected, so what if someone else's Bunsen burner is being used.

The beer is light amber in color with a thin, white head. Coffee, chocolate & caramel immediately hit your nose. Upon taste, I initially pick up sweet, syrupy malts & a bready flavor. It finishes with a hint of vanilla & a coffee bite of bitterness that really helps balance out the sweetness. Great beer to pair with my morning short stack. These Denton boys were right on the "money" with this one.
