Slightly hazy light amber with a soft white blanket.

Smell is coffee first--of a soft, round, earthy variety--with chocolate, biscuit and shortbread.

Taste ushers in the chili spice with a nice little sting. A good level of coffee comes powering in shortly after, bringing with it roasted nuts, chocolate and a hint of vanilla.

There is significantly more body and froth here than Oro Negro, and as such I like it a little better. Blanco has a bit of a semi-wet, round finish.

This seals it: we need more white and golden stouts in the game!

Pour at EBF. I'm not sure what to make of this beer. I had never even heard of a blonde stout before. It certainly looks blonde, which I think was influencing my other senses; but it certainly tasted like a stout or least had stout characteristics. Overall, pretty solid and definitely one to check out for something different.

On tap

Pours a deep golden Amber color, small foamy white head. Smells of coffee, cinnamon, vanilla & peppers. The taste is similar to Oro Negro, but the adjuncts are elevated and it's missing the dark roast notes. Plenty of coffee and pepper, followed by undertones of chocolate and vanilla. Medium bodied with a somewhat viscous mouthfeel, pepper burn on the finish. This ones much hotter than Oro Negro, but very enjoyable
