The coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

OOOOHHHH!!!! This is definitely a top 10 beer...as jet black as a beer can get, this one has a fairly small 1/4 inch head of khaki bubbles. Nose is what I would imagine waking up to in the countryside...freshly brewed coffee, maple syrup, newly baked bread, and chocolate-chip pancakes!!! Flavor is extremely complex but not at all biting. Flavors impact the palate at different intervals; first coffee and chocolate, then smooth oatmeal and caramel. Mr. Atalla, thank you for the opportunity to try this!!!

Much thanks to kryptic and theisti for this bottle. Super dark pour with creamy mocha head and soft lacing. Nose is a dead lock of roasted, almost burnt, coffee with some softer oatmeal in the background. Full bodied mouthfeel with a rich creamy body. Big coffee flavors, maybe too one-dimensional?, along with dark chocolate and roasted malts. Bitter finish that shows the hops. Very nice and would be great with some pancakes and bacon.

Courtesy of Secret Santa 2007....pours opaque black with a creamy caramel color head. Aroma is pure roasted coffee and sweet chocolate. Coats the tongue smoothly without being overpowering. This one was incredible. Maybe I should make some Beerios next time. Thanks Santa!

pours a pitch black beer with a huge caramel coloured head that rocks. The nose is impressive, roasted aroma all over, coffee and a bit of sweetness from dark chocolate. The taste is really nice and full of strong dark chocolate, coffee, with hints of raisins. Well bodied, greatly balanced, huge beer.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 Bottle, courtesy of tytoanderso. A god damn black pour! About as black as any t-shirt a "punk-rocker" could ever find. Nice big frothy brown head which slowly, but surely, tapered down. Coffee seriously really stands out in the aroma. Its the best part of waking up. Whats the best part of this is that it doesn’t smell like fuckin’ Folgers. Smells like the coffee you buy, not the coffee your wife buys. The chocolate is there in the aroma, but not very overpowering. The coffee really masks it. Its definitely more present in the initial taste. There’s something else there too. Roasted malt? The taste of oats also becomes present when you taste it. Everything is fairly balanced. Which works in the beer’s advantage. There’s the utmost hint of a very slight carbonation which is welcomed quite fondly after seeing such a dark pour. Combined it creates a somewhat smooth palate. However, I was expecting something thicker. A pretty good beer. I could definitely have this for breakfast.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 Thanks to the very generous Vance for this one. Opaque black pour and forms a half inch brown head that disappears and leaves only a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. The aroma has mostly coffee notes with a bit of sweet chocolate. The flavor is very smooth, slightly bitter with coffee and baker’s chocolate in the finish. What an amazing beer.

Delicious in every sense. Strong coffee and chocolate tastes with a creamy palate to give it that oatmeal stout consistency. Just an astounding imperial breafast stout. A favorite.
