3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster at the brewery. Clear gold with a two-finger dense white head that dissipates slowly and leaves very nice lace. Strong creamy coffee aromas with roasted malts and a touch of chocolate. Taste is similar, with a strong yet delicate coffee and lactose sweetness. Medium body and carbonation, creamy smooth mouthfeel, light carbonation and a soft finish. Very reminiscent of really good coffee ice cream.

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. "
