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 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.
