Poured on tap at Craft and Growler on 3/29/14. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance: Pale, creamy eggshell head, no lacing. The beer itself is a hazy, dark amber color. "Golden Stout" definitely applies as far as the appearance.
Smell: Loads of coffee, and roasty, sweet malts. I can tell this is not a beer brewed with roasted, dark malts, but it's about as close to a stout as I could imagine considering the pale malts.
Taste: A beautiful amount of coffee, vanilla comes through as well. There's a sugary aspect to the taste as well, adding an almost Belgian characteristic to the beer. More coffee. And then there's some coffee, too. Did I mention coffee?
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation, very thick and creamy.
Overall: Well, this is definitely a "Golden Stout." I can tell it's not a true stout, but it's a remarkable, pale recreation. Some real creativity on the part of Armadillo Ale Works going on here, great job.
Serving type: on-tap
