Great Breakfast Stout, smells like a chocolate cake. Pitch dark body, decent lacing. Taste of chocolate nibs, dash of cinnamon, hints of vanilla and coffee creamer. The only hindrance was the rather light body. If this beer had a hefty silk backbone then it is one of the greatest.

Dark black pour, mocha colored head. Cinnamon and vanilla in the aroma. Some roasted notes in the flavor, strong gingerbread accents, some vanilla, a hint of cinnamon and just a hint of chocolate. Nice, thick rich mouthfeel. Thanks to the Proof Bottle Club for sharing this!

At the rating room, pours dark, light khaki head. Cinnamon and chocolate in the nose. Coffee is great in the taste. More cinnamon some light pine. Balanced. Big burly body. Pretty fucking good.

Howler from the brewery lovingly poured into a Hampton Inn paper cup. Dark black pour with a small brown head. Aroma is sweet coffee and vanilla. Huge flavor of coffee, roasted malt, with a hint of vanilla and syrup. The finish has a little espresso bitterness and cinnamon spice. Tasty.

Draft at brewery. Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Nose is malty, caramel, boozy, and vanilla. I swear i was confused when they told me they were barrel aging some, as this almost smelled and tasted like it was already barrel aged! taste is combination of malt, chocolate, booze, milk chocolate, lactose, roasty coffe and vanilla. A very good to great beer alcohol is there but never hot. Very decadent.

Deep dark black with a small light brown head. Big sweet malty, caramel, toffee, boozy, vanilla, light cinnamon note. Huge complex malt, chocolate, milk chocolate and lactose, roasty, light spicy notes, cinnamon and vanilla. Just a very smooth, complex and delicious beer. Much wow.

Growler shared at homebrew club. Truly fantastic breakfast stout! Dark black pour with khaki head. The aroma is at first a blast of cinnamon that transitions into sugar and vanilla sweetness. Taste is a rich chocolate and coffee blend with plenty of cinnamon and vanilla. Sweet but balanced with a slight bitterness. Cinnamon bun with a coffee. Perfect breakfast. Contends (if not bests) some of the big boys of stout in my mind.
