A blond, white head and some lace
S Has the nose of a vanilla Starbucks espresso, some hops.
T lots of coffee and chocolate, hops as well, quite tasty.
M nice silky wonderful mouth feel, coffee aftertaste.
O lovely beer, quite good and surprising. I know you shouldn't judge a beer by its color but this is my first blond stout, so I was quite surprised at the stout punch this little blonde beauty had in her. Had I'm shaker pint at OSDH in Denton

Poured from growler into a tulip

Appearance- light copper color with a tan head that fades quickly and does not leaving much lacing.

Smell- chocolate and oatmeal cookies, maple sugar, faint roasted coffee. Smells like a great imperial stout and immediately your eyes begin to question how light in color this beer is.

Taste- chocolate, cocoa, oats, and lots of coffee. The coffee taste isn't the normal coffee I get from most stouts, its a bit sweeter. So much complexity with every sip. First comes the chocolate, then you take another sip and it changes over to a sweet coffee and oatmeal taste. And some maple sugar sweetness.

Mouthfeel- medium to full mouthfeel, medium carbonation, the coffee lingers for a few seconds.

Overall- Quite a tasty beer. The drinkablity is off the chart. Its so complex but yet you just want to drink it so quickly. This will be great for summer when you want to enjoy a refreshing roasted/chocolaty beer, which I've never said about a 10% stout. The light color of this beer really does change how you perceive your drinking experience. I can't wait until they bottle it. Pairs best with brinner.

Poured from the bomber into a nonic pint glass. The beer is brown, amber and has light hues. There's a haze to the liquid and some robust carbonation. The head is a finger thick, creamy but dissipates quickly. 4

While pouring, the aroma reminds me of bourbon, like a jack and coke. From the glass, it does have a syrupy aroma and big vanilla notes. It's both a sweet and boozy smell. 3.75

The sweetness continues, but there's an astringent taste here that's a bit of a bummer. This competes with a maple-like flavor that does remind me of pancakes. Caramel and toffee are all over this brew. Vanilla is a big presence as well. As this warms, the booziness on the flavor subsides well.

While overly boozy initially, this settles to a sweet, almost syrupy and, potentially for some, cloying concoction. The sweetness could be toned down and I wish there was more hops to balance this. 3.6

This beer could be great but for the sweetness. 3.75
