Scottish Chocolate Breakfast Stout - brewed with Brazilian Sertão coffee, Venezuelan cacao and (for the Scottish element) oatmeal. Created and brewed by beer writers Rob Derbyshire (from Hopzine) and Richard Taylor (from the BeerCast), Dead Metaphor refers to a lot of the nomenclature and buzz words/phrases that are bandied about in modern beer writing - and has been designed to get the synapses firing when writing deadlines approach. This beer should be sipped for instant inspiration. Label design by Drew Millward.

I thought I’d had it but I guess I lost the rating. Anyways, it came up on sale for 50% off from Taniguchi so I snapped up a few bottles. Served in my stout glass it poured pitch black with a thick dark tan head that left some soapy lacing. The nose is savoury umami, soy, cacao and a bit of sweet milk coffee. Thinner bodied than anticipated. The taste is roasty at first, soy, toasted oats but it is in the finish and the aftertaste that the coffee shines through giving you roast coffee, oats and a certain sweetness. Very enjoyable.

El color es marrón oscuro con una cabeza de color beige espumosa y duradera. El aroma es de chocolate, café, malta, tostado y a lúpulo moderado. El sabor es mas de chocolate y de cacao, con notas de café y malta tostada, de cuerpo medio, con una sensación suave en boca, sabrosa, agradable y bien equilibrada, buena cerveza.

Wonderful aroma of dark malt and coffee. The taste is much coffee beans. Sweet bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Really tasty and enjoyable beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
