Fina mörka toner av massvis med choklad, nästan så att man sugs ner i glaset. Mörk tjock och respektingivande i färgen. Vid första tungvätan exploderar massvis med smaker i munnen, choklad, kaffe, söt lakrits. Provsmakades vid Kullens tillsammans med Andre´

Black in colour with a medium lasting brown head. Aromas of instant coffee, chocolate malt, cereals, milk chocolate with light toasted white bread notes develop. Light mousse soft texture with a medium-full body offering light sweetness with coffee/chocolate bitterness. Finish is lightly astingent yet in harmony.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottles, thanks Beerism! I am happy to finally try this - 2012 A dark black pour with a filmy beige head. Roast coffee and molasses. Full bodied and silky soft the taste is hugely coffee with a sweet milky coffee taste. The 2013 is a similar dark cola pour with a slightly thicker beige head. It has a similar aroma as the 2012 almost identical but with a bit more of a fudgey caramel quality to it. Chocolate, milk sugary coffee taste. Sweeter than the 2012 but the differences were incredibly minimal.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pitch black, oily liquid, with a small, creamy, tan head. Amazing, rich, complex aroma with all kinds of different chocolate and coffee notes, vanilla, caramel, some alcohol, even some vegetables. Taste is more of a straight stout, with coffee, wood, smoke, dark chocolate, dark dried fruits, earth. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, roasty, dry, with coffee, wooden and dark chocolate notes. Tasty stuff! Just one little complaint, that the taste doesn’t fully keep what the wonderful nose promises. But nonetheless a delicious Stout that even is quite easy to drink despite the ABV and the richness.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2014 American oatmeal stout enriched with Sumatra and Kona coffee. Thin, beige head, black colour. Spicy coffee beans in the aroma, like a ristretto, smoked accent, charcoal, chocolate, some caramel, some vanilla. Strong chocolate maltiness in the mouth, soft and silky thanks to the generous appliance of oats, powdery, very full mouthfeel, caramel and cinnamon hints, smokey accent again, finishing in a strong roasted bitterness. Not sure I’d have this for breakfast as the name suggests - but a very good stout in any case.

2013 bottle poured into a snifter. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, bliss. Opague black with a small off-white head. Tastes of chicory, dark chocolate, the essence of earth. This unbelievable imperial stout will change someone’s life. Or twice.

355ml bottle. Poured a brown so dark that it borders on black, with a brown head which quickly diminished to a ring, minimal lacing. Aroma of chicory, espresso, dark cooking chocolate, smokiness and vanilla. Medium roasty bitterness combined with some sweetness. Medium, smooth body with some astringency and a mildly warming alcoholic finish.
