Draft at the brewpub. Pours orange-gold with a modest, white foam head. Pretty nice stuff but the coffee character is really aggressive. Big coffee in the aroma followed by even bigger coffee presence in the flavor. Also notes of sweet bread and dried berries. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Strong, pungent coffee finish. Somewhat one-dimensional but quite nice if you enjoy your coffee dark and strong.

Hazy golden pour with a dense white head. Intense coffee around and a nice sweetness. Bread, a surprising roast character, and a nice lactose note. The flavor has a very intense coffee flavor. A bit earthy, a bit spicy, and a bit chocolatey. Good lactose and malt sweetness, a bit of toffee, and some of the same roast notes. Very nicely done.

OH FUCK YES. Ok, so this is the gold standard for "golden stouts". The coffee and the creaminess in this beer, the sheer increadibly perfect roasted notes. I could drink this for DAYS.

Tap at 38 Degrees for The Full Pint 6th Anniversary. Panama version. Pours clear orange with nitro white foam. Sheets of nitro foam. Nose is rich coffee, hilarious for SRM, pretty much smells like walking into a sidewalk coffee shop. Taste is really nice- caramel frappacino comes to mind, vanilla latte, rich. I don’t usually like coffee beers, but this one really was delicious.

Pour on tap at Oaks Tavern, hazy golden pour with white head, nitro pour, aroma brought notes of big espresso, coffee bean, latte type note with a hint of vanilla, honey, slight bready note as well in there. Taste was a mix of espresso, green coffee beans, some vanilla into honey, biscuit, slight yeasty, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet. Very tasty!

DSG (8665) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/18/15] Draught at Noble Ale Works in Anaheim. Clear deep golden. Nice strong coffee aroma. Sweetish flavor with lactose, coffee, a chocolate hint and a bit of malt. Medium-bodied, nitro mouthfeel. A nice coffee beer.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 On tap at PlaygroundDTSA (their first anniversary beer: Don’s Naughty Sauce). Pours with a hazed brown hued body with a creamy tan head. The aroma is absolutely insane. Massive brown sugar, toasted nuts, coffee, light tobacco and some very nice bready malt character. Very complex coffee, some lactose character. Stunning. Flavors are bready with brown sugar notes, shortbread, and an intense and vibrant coffee character. Light roasted notes. Creamy, medium to fuller body, velvety. Awesome!

On nitro at the Faction Ales for ALS festival. I was pretty excited to see this one here. It pours a golden orange color with a creamy white head. The aroma is straight up potent freshly ground coffee beans, honey and bread. Sweet lactose. It kind of has a milkshake quality to it honestly. The flavor is the same with coffee, milk sugars, honey and milkshake in the finish. A very sweet beer, but the lactose and coffee were balanced very nicely. Interesting stuff.

Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours clear copper with a smooth creamy white head. Tastes like iced coffee, a hint of chocolate, roasted malt, and light creaminess. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted coffee beans, roasted malt, and fresh brewed coffee.
