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.

Des crales enrobes de miel, une monte de lactose et un coup de grce torrfi. Le service au nitro fait du sens mais en pratique a accentue leffet du lactose qui navait pas besoin daide.

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.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - 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.

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!

RedSox2004 (1840) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - NOV 8, 2014
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.

Hipster OC. Totally Awks. Not in a fin way but pretty good. Strange hops, strange roast, and a cedar note. Abundance of flavor but couldnt pound a bunch. Just enjoy the one.

Poured at GABF...crazy brew...strated to like this cross between a pale ale and stouty vegatable. But as I kept drinking it it grew on me so much, I couldnt get enough. You just gotta try it. But take my wourd for it after so many beers we had at the GABFs you wont be disapointed.

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.
