Tap at the Raccoon Lodge. Pours dark gold with a white head. Coffee is primary in the aroma. Med body or so. Flavor is very coffee, with a hint of chocolate, and perhaps a touch of vanilla. Clearly one of the good coffee stouts, even if it isn’t black. :)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Cascade Barrel House. Golden colored beer with white foam. Smells like coffee and cream, that’s for certain. Some vanilla, hazelnut, and a touch of caramel. Fairly sweet, particularly like a hazelnut vanilla creamer sort of thing going on. Light spiciness of coffee, some cocoa powder, and plenty of actual coffee flavor. Not bad.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
"Not sure how to class this. Guess in the end it doesn’t matter. They call it a blonde porter, we hear it referred to as a blonde stout, but due to appearance it’s classed as an ale. Smells and tastes of iced coffee. Creamy soft palate and wonderful finish. "

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours blonde with a large white head. The aroma has lots of cocoa and coffee, but also crisp bready pale malt like a golden ale. It has a medium smooth body with really soft carbonation. The flavor starts with cocoa, pale bready malt, coffee bitterness, some fruit and berries. The finish has an odd mix of spice, cocoa and bread. Interesting.
