Aroma of coffee in the medium bodied beer, a lot of coffee in the taste with a little chocolate on the flavor, ok

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Pale yellow with a quickly dissipating foamy white head. Vanilla and a slight coffee/brew taste. Refreshing, but with substance. Very smooth. Reminds me of a vanilla flavor cigar. Every so often I have a craving for this beer.

Near clear dark golden from the bottle. I'll admit this name cracked me up. Very coffee forward nose. Crisp light body, with a flavor of sweet malt and mocha. Pretty kewl.

12 ounce can. Golden with just a little white haze. Plenty of rising carbonation. A white head. A coffee and sweet sugary malts aroma. Flavor begins with the sweet malts and coffee but then shifts to grass and sulfur. And then back to the coffee and malts but with fruit.

Keg @ HopCat, Ann Arbor. Deep golden pour with a tiny head. Really coffee-forward nose. Some mellow cream. Mild floral accents. Nice coffee flavor's. Lightly forks and zippy. Soft accents of chocolate. Some jasmine. Medium body, bright carb. Good coffee blonde.

12 oz can pours a cloudy golden color with a large white head that lastes and leaves clumps of lacing. Aroma has cocoa, vanilla, coffee, and cream. Taste is initially sweet with a bitter finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Easily drinkable, and quite enjoyable. Looks like a blonde Ale but tastes like a sweet stout or a porter.

poisoneddwarf (2690) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 21, 2017
12 oz bottle from a grocery store in upper Michigan. Aroma is coffee, skunk, vanilla, cocoa. Pours slightly hazy golden with a medium white head with decent retention. Taste is lightly sweet with flavors of coffee, green bell pepper, lotion. Finishes with a light dry bitterness. Interesting and tasty; the off notes are easy to look past.

Can. Looks like a blonde ale but the first taste is chocolaty coffee, so odd. Yas, if I closed my eyes I would be imagining a black chocolate flavored stout. So, light a few candles, turn down the lights and put on some easy listening music and then enjoy the chocolate this beer has to offer, you need not look at the color of the beer.

12floz can without a freshness marker, ~$1.75 unit cost, poured into a pint glass where it appears a somewhat cloudy straw color with a soft white head. Smells like milk chocolate, and initial taste does too with a hint of coffee. Very light, refreshing, and has a smooth cereal grain finish (much like actual breakfast cereal). Quite the impressive coffee golden ale.

AWISLguy (3442) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2017
5oz pour at ABV Social. Pours a pale golden with a white head leaving streaky lace. Sweet roasty nose, with some cocoa. Taste is sweet fruits, cafe au lait, light yeast. The fruit & yeast lead. Light and sweet, solid & not boring for a low abv offering.12.8

commonshawn (1340) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2017
Tap at brewery in grand haven during glbtq. Gold with medium white head. Heavy coffee aroma. Coffee subtle in flavor. Really nice body and roundness. Very smooth. Sweet grain taste balances the coffee softness. Surprising, especially for the mouthfeel. Very good.
