what can i say. not altogether beery but good coffee and good chocolate. blonde ale somewhat orange. one looks for this in a land of proper seasons. oobawa (1793) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Solid blonde coffee beer, unexpectedly rich in mocha notes while maintaining a golden ale brightness. Modest red apple sweetness meshes with the chocolate and coffee, while a mild but firm bitterness rounds out the finish. Aroma and looks are rather lackluster, but the creamy, perky texture works well with both blonde and coffee sides of the brew. Easy-drinking, for damn sure.

DATE: June 11, 2017... OCCASION: finishing a whirlwind weekend with Lord of the Rings and the boys....GLASSWARE: Stoudt’s autographed pint... pours a cloudy golden body with enough bubbles to produce a steady stream,,, off-white head is perfunctory, thinning off at once to a pencil-thin, even ring... definite, brash coffee bean, light chocolate and lighter vanilla bean give an awakening, abrasive aroma... the earthiness and spiciness tantalize a bit... a smooth, medium-bodied draw ensues, with a lingering strength of bitter pepper and roasted bean... a light citrus brightens the cocoa and coffee that otherwise punches the drinker with an audacious strength... the overall drinkability surprises, even at 6.3% ABV, which is where the blonde comes in.... refreshing and flavorful in balance--may be the finest Schlafly I have had to this point... gripweed57 (2912) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Hazy, honey gold color. Earthy, green coffee bean nose. Flavor is tangy, with a peculiar smoky, coffeeish malt flavor. Notes of earth, green coffee and cocoa. Tart and dry. Unusual at best. Jabah (550) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Traded a festival buddy from Missouri one of these for a 3 Daughters Coffee Blonde. This had less malt and flavor. Blondes are typically hit or miss for me. This is a near miss but drinkable. Balance is slightly off and a bit of a rusty feel. Coffee is mild...not much of a complement. Good to try, but not one I’d really buy.

From a growler purchased for $6.50, also had in bottles in the past. This is one those blonde stouts, which is blonder than the other three or so I’ve had before. It pours frothy, then the head dissipates to almost nothing stop a golden body. Vanilla is in the nose, but it tastes like Wendy’s malt. Texture is light-minded, so it is drinkable. mansquito (6971) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2017
Some bodega: pours lightly amberish gold with a whitish head. Aroma is cocoa and coffee. Taste is somewhat sweet and the chocolate and coffee tastes is there for sure. Lingering aftertaste. JPDIPSO (6293) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 2, 2017
Lightly hazed light golden colored liquid. Moderate, but stable, sized light beige head. Pure coffee bean scents. You have to work to get a bit of malt and chocolate from the aroma, but it’s not a chore. I’m not a huge coffee beer fan, but this has a fresh bean scent that is appealing. Lightly sweet start. Coffee does not make much of an impression in the flavors. A little bitterness, but the flavors are more reminiscent of cocoa nibs. Slightly acidic. Here I stand, not a coffee brew fan, loving the aroma and wanting more of them transformed into the flavors. Go figure.
