Valley Road Enterprises / Pizza Boy Brewing Co. "Trung Latte"
Sampled from what seems like a 16 fl. oz. can but which is not labeled as such. "TASTE # BEANS 11/8/17 18:06"
$3 at the brewery

Notes via stream of consciousness: The sticker on the can reads "3% ALC. BY VOL." It pours an opaque black body beneath a two-finger thick head of dark tan. The aroma is distinctly coffee-like with a nuttiness, some underlying chocolate, and a soft roastiness. It smells like fresh, oily coffee beans. Very nice! In fact I think it's one of the best coffee aromas I've ever found in a beer. The flavor follows but it's not quite as authentically coffee-like, and there's an additional note that I'm not exactly sure of, something earthy, or even lightly vegetal. I know it has to be coming from the coffee beans but I'm not used to it. I was expecting some chocolate and there's a light touch, mainly appearing in the finish, giving it a kind of mocha coffee feel. The nuttiness that I found in the aroma doesn't quite come through as fully either. The roastiness remains the same: softly roasty. It's not very bitter, nor is there any acidic bite, but it's perfectly balanced. For coffee lovers this has got to be a great treat. For stout lovers it seems a little light though. It's light-medium in body and just lightly crisp. As a low alcohol beer though it's hard to complain about. Given that, yeah, there's a lot of flavor there.

Latest version is only 2.7% abv. big coffee aroma and taste. Super drinkable, if you enjoy coffee like I do. Almost more coffee than beer. A breakfast beer for sure

Good, but not at the level of Vietnamese Coffee Sunny Side Up. Could use a bit more coffee presence and a thicker milk stout presence. Recommended, but maybe my hopes were too high after having my socks knocked off by Vietnamese SSU.
