750ml bottle poured into 18oz Funky Buddha snifter. Batch #1, bottled 5/7/13 (two days ago), abv 3.5% hand written on bottle.

A- Pours a slightly hazy yellowish golden that has a bout a finger's worth of white bubbly head that recedes slightly faster then average pace. About average carbonation with nice consistency. Like the description this definitely looks more like a "pilsner" or lighter beer then an actual stout.

S- Coffee beans, some light vanilla beans, and a strong wheat grain-like background. Fairly aromatic.

T- Light watery coffee with some vanilla beans added and a strong wheat backbone, finishes more wheat and more of a coffee bean and presence that lingers on the palate for a little while. Interesting, definitely unique, I wasn't a huge fan of the original taste but the finish wasn't too bad- just a little bit unsual, which I don't mind.

M- Slightly watery as expected with the 3.5%, decent carbonation (maybe carbed just a little bit too much), very easy drinking.

O- This was definitely an unique brew that I enjoyed trying but I probably won't try again in the near future. It had interesting tastes, almost like an oatmeal stout without the chocolate mixed with lighter bodied beer. An interesting concept, but I'd probably take most stouts over this. Also I'd like to see them beef this up a little bit, as a 3.5% session beer it was a little bit on the watery side which I felt like didn't go with the coffee that well (who wants to session a coffee beer?).
