On draft at Aces and Ales. Coffee with slight green pepper, chocolate, creamy head. This is exactly what I was expecting, executed very well.

On nitro tap at Apex, pours a hazy golden with a creamy white head. Aroma brings out dry earthy espresso beans and toasted biscuity malt. Flavour is dominated by the coffee beans upfront, followed by fairly prominent lactose and a little cocoa. Finishes medium sweet, with notes of vanilla and espresso. Very nice but seemingly overrated to me.

Nitro pour. Pours orange with a white head. Rich sweet cold brew, sweet mocha and cream, and a mild roasted coffee finish. Damn good.

Tap. Pours hazy orange, large creamy beige head, long lasting with nice lacing. Aroma is huge coffee. Flavor is latte, lots of milk sugar and huge cold press coffee. Light plus sweet, medium bitter, mostly from the roast. Rich and creamy. If coffee was a beer, this would be it. Wow. Medium plus body, ultra creamy mouthfeel. Winner.

Tap at brewery. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is very coffee, sweet, a bit of hop coming through. Taste is creamy, rich coffee, med bodied, easy, drinkable and very good. Overall, highly recommend.

slowrunner77 (11289) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 14, 2015
tap - golden stout smells of coffee above all else, with some roasted malt and light chocolate. Some vanilla in addition to the rest in the flavor. Silky. Good stuff.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Taste at beer belly. "golden milk stout". Pours pale straw, massive coffee flavour and aroma, mildly sweet. Curious how it gets the coffee presumably using no roast malt (or it would be dark). Very nice but I didnt think I could face a full glass!

Crazy beer with spiciest some peppery tones wand coffee. Earthy herbal hops. Fairly full palet and good crisp finish.
