The Armadillo Ale Works Brunch Money is a Golden Stout or a Blonde Porter, whatever it is it’s a very unique and tasty brew. Inspired by brunch Armadillo Ale Works adds maple syrup, cocoa nibs, vanilla, coffee and lactose sugar to the base golden ale that has flaked barley and oats and a hint of honey and caramel malts. This all adds up to a dynamic drinking experience that is truly Brunch in a bottle. The beer poured a light copper with a small tan head that disappeared quickly. The aroma has a vanilla and maple sweetness intertwined with coffee that can trick you into thinking stout. The taste hits you with an initial coffee roast followed immediately by the sweet vanilla and maple sugar that is boosted by the lactose sugar. The cocoa lingers on the back end and coats your palate with a pleasant bitterness. This beer truly takes your taste buds on a ride. It may seem like a lot but the parts equal a tantalizing whole that was surprisingly drinkable given the high ABV. While the Brunch Money may fool you into thinking its a stout it is altogether unique and a perfect brunch treat.
