Bottle:   Soft cocoa, maple syrup, and some chiles on the tongue.   It has a chile aspect but not the heat.   Fairly sweet.   Pretty tasty overall.   Its weird, I keep expecting heat because of the chile flavor, but it doesnt show up.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Interesting sweet beer.   Cocoa powder, maple syrup and chile flavor is what I seem to get most, but no heat.   Very interesting beer to say the least.   Thanks Bill!

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.

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.

Only complaint is that its a bit too boozy/too much alcohol heat. Otherwise, this is wonderful. Love the flavors. Seems like it should be a porter/stout, but its not -- rather, very good flavors, including chocolate, maple, vanilla, and some other things going on. Quite good!

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2014
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, Werthers 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.
