High noon will have to take a backseat as the fresh morning air is perfect for a duel. We present our stout, brewed with roasted malts, oats, lactose, and locally produced cocoa nibs and coffee. A rich, dark velvety beer with a fine oatmeal flavor.

emacgee (4428) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Pours dark and full bodied with a wispy light tan head. Nose shows day old cold pressed coffee and an acidic character. Very muddled aroma, hard to distinguish finer aromatics. Flavor is kind of the same, doesn’t have much structure. The pieces are there but they’re not coming together. Some day old coffee and chocolaty flavor with that weird thin feeling from coffee but the body from oats and lactose. Very disjointed.

DiarmaidBHK (3827) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle from Bestway. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing in the glass. roasted malt notes on the nose. lots of lactose on the tongue with a bit of bitterness from the chocolate. Finishes clean. Solid example of style.

Bottle @ The WWGT2D? Tasting. The pour’s deep brown with a small head. The nose is quite sweet indeed. Loads of Hershey’s syrup. Cocoa, roast coffee. The taste is dark roasted chocolate. Hints of pepper. Coffee. Medium body, soft carbonation. Decent.

chinchill (3234) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2014
2013 22 oz bottle at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta). Dark brown; clear but near opaque. Coffee! Coffee at or higher than a Founders Breakfast Stout level. But it lacks the richness, complexity and balance of the best coffee stouts. Very mild bitterness; in fact lightly sweet until the more or less balanced finish.

Suttree (5646) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Black, ring of foam. Smells - and I’m not kidding here - like Count Chocula. Seriously. Much more coffee in the flavor, but still lots of chocolate. I get a subtle winey note, too. Very enjoyable.
