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.

Pours hazy amber with frothy white head out of bottle. Aroma of caramel, spice, and malt. Taste of roasted cocoa, caramel, syrup, and malt. Good beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap - deep rust color with a small head. Has a nice roast coffee aroma and a coffee and caramel taste. Seems like a stout but it isn’t. Very nice. Not a huge herb/vegetable beer fan but I like this one.

Bottle thanks to rightcross55. Pours a hazy copper color with a small foamy head that fades to a nice ring. Very unique aroma. Jalapeno poppers, maple syrup, chocolate, vanilla pudding, coffee, and grease. Tastes like maple syrup and vanilla mostly. Also, getting caramel, coffee, and brown sugar. Very syrupy sweet. Medium to full body. Syrupy and sticky. Very unique beer all around. Either a breakfast or dessert beer I guess and I wish I would’ve opened this at a share. The strong sweetness and intense flavors will make it hard for me to finish the whole bomber. Very cool beer.

I guess this is what they call a white stout. Color is murky tan. Lots of vanilla. Maple syrup. Touch of coffee and chocolate. Decent stuff.

jhamp9 (1029) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Dark amber pour with an off white head. Aroma is strong coffee, condensed milk, and maple syrup. Taste is coffee, sweet vanilla, syrup, and milk chocolate. A lot of layers. Sweet overall but not too heavy. I really enjoy this beer.

On tap at Big Texas Beer Fest. Orange pour with a small head. Aroma is coffee and syrup. Taste is sticky, sweet with a side of coffee. Greasy spoon breakfast.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2014
On tap at Big Texas Beer Fest and later at Jack’s and Craft and Growler because I love this beer. Orange-copper pour with a white head. The aroma has a lot of cocoa and coconut notes, as well as a bit of maple. The flavor is very similar. The chocolate and maple notes mix very well with some brown sugar to make the beer taste a lot like chocolate covered waffles. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Great.
