Batch #2, Bottled on 5-20-2013

Consumed on 8-06-2013. Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Pours a murky light brown in color kind of like old dishwater...not the most appealing beer visually. Small white head at the top with minimal lacing. A bit funky on the nose, aroma is mostly mild with a hint of coffee and overripe fruit. While its hard to pick up the coffee by smell, the first thing I taste are the beans they've added. Unfortunately it tastes like old coffee grounds and maybe even cigarette smoke. Maybe it would have been better fresher. Although the beer is quite creamy, it also feels thin in body if that is possible. Perhaps it's just the mental perception of drinking a light colored beer calling itself a stout. Overall it's an interesting and creative concoction but that's not always a recipe for success. I'd be willing to try this again, only because this is the first mediocre offering I've had from Night Shift. Everything else has been outstanding.

I really liked this beer

Pours hazy yellow with a thick white head.

Smells like coffee. It was bizarre to get such a coffee taste from a beer that wasn't really a stout.

Taste- Coffee but with a hint of wheat. I was expecting more bitterness but the beer is really balanced.

MF-Carbonated and smooth at the same time. Loved the mouthfeel of this beer.

Overall- I have had 4-5 beers from this brewery and this has been my favorite by far. I would be nice if the ABV was a little higher but a great beer.

I'm not one to fruit the beer, but a twist of lemon goes a long way with this beer.

Classified by the brewery as a "white stout." Growler poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Comes out a pale straw yellow color. It's very hazy, can't really see through it but you can kind of see shadows and shapes. Glows very a golden color when held up to the light. Pale white head with various sized bubbles, not much in the way of lacing.

Smell is pretty good, but I'd classify it more as a Belgian Style stout than American or English style. Smells like some black coffee, but a little thin and slightly under-brewed. After that there's fresh ground belgian style malt and yeast aromas. Not much in the way of roasted/toasted malts, but very wheaty.

Taste is on par with the smell. Coffee, wheat, slight oats and grain as well. At the end there is sort of a earthy pepper flavor.

Mouthfeel is good, but it belongs more along the lines of a wheat beer, belgian pale, or some type of sour. Light bodied and a little gritty. Pretty drinkable though.

Overall it's a pretty unique beer. I liked the sample enough to get a growler, but the growler was a bit much on it's own. A fun beer to play with and worth trying and talking about. Like I said above, a twist of lemon goes a long way with this one...Also a nice IPA blends quite nicely with this, sounds weird, but it works.
