Loved it. It's a Vienna cream ale not stout. Very well done mellow coffee tones to compliment the nitro. Aroma was my least favorite part of this beer but was drinking it at a bar. I just felt the aroma lacked, well anything. But the the flavor Mouth feel and appetence are spot on for a Vienna coffee lager or what ever they are calling it.

Nitro tap at Whole Foods in Chandler, AZ.
Bottom line - a waste of coffee and beer. I felt like there was no commitment to the coffee element in this beer. It was drinkable because it wasn't offensive, but my take on coffee beers is that you should be bold. The risk is worth the reward. I shouldn't have to struggle to find the coffee, but that's the case here. Too bad, because there's not a large selection of non-stout coffee beers.
