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.

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.
