Draught nitro. Dark amber pour with thick white head. Aroma is chocolate and malt. Malty flavour with no trace of anise. Sweet finish.

Bronze, bubbly head. Coffee on the nose, has some sticky sweet malts, and coffee is pretty intense. Decent execution but not my favourite concept.

Golden copper, hazy. Odd, smells chocolate, milk chocolate. Funny! Spicy taste, different but nice. An anomaly indeed! (Sampled at the brewery)

So yeah. Blonde stout. Kinda. Still taste the underlying blonde and whatnot. Pretty interesting though.

Nitro at BeerNV. Golden hue with fluffy white head. Aroma is weak at first, but opens up nicely. White chocolate and sweet grainy malt. Flavor is similar. Great nitro beer, sweet and decadent, but light and airy at the same time.

2.8
tightslice (1440) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 4, 2015
On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is vanilla, coffee, something artificial. Taste is sweet, artificial sweet, vanilla syrup, coffee syrup. Reminded me a of fake vanilla latte slurpee which sounds good but ultimately is pretty gross.

4.3
joet (2664) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Radiant orange white nitro foam, chocolate, vanilla, light citrus, woah. This in really cool. Lightly creamy. Drinkable and luscious.

bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Draft. Nitro. Amber beer with a nitro cream head. Malt and light chocolate aroma. Milk chocolate and light malt flavor. Medium bodied. Milk chocolate and light malt lingers.

3.8
brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 14, 2014
On tap @ Faction. Slightly hazed golden orange pour with thick white foam. A lot of coffee and spices on the aroma. Sort of a dark chocolate note, hints of licorice, and some creamy vanilla. Mild caramel malts as well. The flavor has a bit more of a licorice note to it. A lot of coffee and vanilla, though. A fairly heavy dose of caramel and sweet chocolate. Maybe a bit of orange peel. The anise really comes through more as it sits.

2.6

[ Keg ][ 14oz ][ Congregation Long Beach ][ $6 ][ Stemmed Flute ][ 11.8.14 ]
>> Thanks DTF for the share. Clear amber pour, great white foam. Nose is pure sugarcane. Taste is pure sugar, tea, cloyingly sweet. Way too sweet, not much coffee character, no anise. Disappointing.
