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.

tightslice (1204) - 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.

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.

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.

[ 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.

On nitro at The Local Beer Bar in Eureka, CA. .Came gold in the glass with a white head Nose of chocolate. Medium in body. Flavor of chocolate which seems unusual in such a light colored beer. Lots of subtle flavors abound. Finish is somewhat sweet. Interesting and quite easy drinking

One of the most unique beers we have had. Pours a clear yellow with a thick white head. Smells of cream, vanilla, coffee and Graham cracker. Extremely creamy taste with more cream, Graham and a candy cane hint in the finish. Tastes like a dark stout, looks like a pale ale. Had on tap at the brewery.
