Hard pour only generates a finger of sudsy off-white head and a somewhat clear deep orange body. Leaves some lace.

Smells like a stout due to the roasty coffee additions. The smell and color are confusing. Chocolate, vanilla, and maple syrup. Definitely a sweet smelling beer.

A little sticky sweet from the lactose and sugary additions. Good thing the coffee is in this thing for "balance". Chocolate, brown sugar, syrup.

Smooth and thick with medium carbonation.

Pair with a salad so you don't feel like a fatass while drinking this stuff. Or brunch.

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 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.
