Notes / Commercial Description:
Golden Milk Stout infused with 3 pounds per barrel of Guatemalen coffee. Head Brewer Evan Price worked together with Roast Master Jeff Duggan from Portola Coffee Lab to create a truly unique drinking experience. Stout with oats and lactose (milk sugar), coffee instead of roasted grain.

This uses different coffee than Don's Naughty Sauce, which uses Portola Don Pachi Coffee and was a collaboration with Playground DTSA.

On tap at BottleCraft – Little Italy San Diego, CA
Had this on 09/25/15 – 8oz pour on Nitro

Dark orange-caramel color amber body with poor clarity and a nice cascading nitro gas effect. Conjures up a creamy smooth stack of pure white snow over top. Impeccable hang time with glossy ribbons of lace riding down the glass. Smells of fresh espresso bean and green earthy hops with some vanilla cookie dough like sweetness. Somewhat sweet overall with the fresh gourmet beans on full display. Very clean, concise, and controlled.
Pure and fresh coffee bean, earthy and green, with some accompanying toasted cereal and milky sweetness. Much like a soft baked cookie with espresso. Again this has a very controlled precision. Nothing too over the top. No bitter astringency whatsoever. The mouthfeel is a creamy delight that stays light and frothy on the palate down to the finish.
Glad to finally get to this one on draught. While it didn’t particularly blow my skirt it is well crafted with a fine balance and some real nice fresh coffee flavor. I would laud Noble for being at the forefront of this sub-style with their Naughty Sauce.
