HMOG 2015. At the tail end of a crazy day, this one managed to awanken the palate. Timing and placing perfection for me. Vanille, coffee, cocoa on top of a lively golden brew. Heavy sweet competed nicely with the 30 other brews I had.

Pours orangish copper with a small white ring. Smells strongly like coffee. Taste is Golden Grahams cereal and coffee. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Armadillo Ale Works Brunch Money finishes with a lingering coffee bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Extra from a recent trade. Was expecting something a little more on the side of the stout equation but this pouts a bit more orange gold color. Very sweet. Lots of vanilla and chocolate. Some roasty malt. Syrupy and molasses. Ok bit a little too much on the sweet stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Only complaint is that it’s a bit too boozy/too much alcohol heat. Otherwise, this is wonderful. Love the flavors. Seems like it should be a porter/stout, but it’s not -- rather, very good flavors, including chocolate, maple, vanilla, and some other things going on. Quite good!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Light copper body, slightly murky with a white-ish head that fades to a collar quickly. Aroma of caramel, light maple syrup, honey, faint metallic toffee, just a hint of cocoa dust, some toasted crackers, & faint yeast. Taste has more vanilla & tastes like some sort of wafer cookie. Lightly sweep marscarpone & whipped cream sweetness with hints of maple, brown sugar, toffee, Werther’s candy, butterscotch, vanilla bean, & very faint coffee grounds. Lots of stuff going on, a dry bread & yeast finish. A very unique beer here. Lots to wrap your head around, but pretty tasty when all is said & done.

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, light maple syrup, vanilla, and a hint of nuts. It pours a transparent copper with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with chocolate and caramel. He finish has light-moderate vanilla with a touch of nuts. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

22 ounce bottle thanks to errl. A brunch golden ale? Interesting...poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a clear copper to burnt orange with a velvety head of beige foam. Pretty good retention. The aroma is definitely roasty and I get biscuit and syrup and honey. The taste delivers on the coffee while still delivering on the syrup aspects and bready notes that could be taken for pancakes. Thicker mouthfeel, a lot like I would expect in a stout. Moderate carbonation.
