07 bottle from Bottleworks. Pours a shiny black, with a dark mocha head. Thick pour. The aroma has a lot of coffee, layered over sugary cacao and vanilla. Flavor is definitely coffee-heavy, roasty, dark and bitter. There’s a surprising lack of chocolate in the flavor, which I’m so used to in big stouts. I could absolutely see having this with breakfast - coffee notes, and a somewhat mild flavor, all things considered. I simply think stouts need to be bigger than this.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2010 My first beer of 2009 and this is certainly a good one. Pours black in color and generates a big fluffy brownish-tan head. Great head retention, lacing after each sip. At first the aroma consists of molasses, chocolate and toasty bold coffee beans. I taste those three flavors as well, however the molasses are rather mild compared to the heavy chocolate and coffee, which is bold and roasted but also a touch creamy. The beer is capped off by a generous dose of bitter piney hops which I also pick up in the aroma as the beer has warmed a bit. What I love about this beer is that is is packed with flavor while being very drinkable. I’m not sure I’m going to start drinking this for breakfast but I do look forward to having it again. Great start to the new year!

Drank from a 16.9 oz bottle. Poured a dark black (syrupy consistency) with a finger and a half of tan foam which stays for a while. The smell is strongly of oatmeal, with a whiff of coffee at the end, very delightful. After the first taste, I am surprised with how smoothly it goes down. Also, this is a true breakfest stout, with the main flavor being that traditional with an oatmeal stout, but it follows up with a coffee taste/aftertaste, which is very pleasing. Also, the lacing on this beer is nice, as it sticks to the glass quite well. Overall, a very good beer, and the best breakfest stout I have had (though I look forward to Founders Breakest Stout).

Sep 4, 2007 Bottle from Bierkoning. Syrupy dark, black really, liquid. Heavy toasty dark aroma. Really nice coffee and chocolate flavours. I feel bad for drinking this in the evening, tastes like it would be especially delicious in the morning. Creamy and luscious. Thank you.

1.9 oz bottle - poured a dark color with a about a 3-finger brownish head. Bit of a coffee smell and very nice on the nose. The drinkability is very high on this stout given it’s very balanced nature.

Crushed with Jakebra. Seriously am drinking it for breakfast. Ooh, this ladys got the thickness. Sexy mouthfeel. Good coffee flavor, bitter finish that mellows out, then its time for another sip.

Bottle. Black pour with thick brown head. Aroma is sweet milky oats and lots of roast. Flavor is the same, lots of roast in the finish, and black coffee finish as well. It does not have much going on beyond the coffee and roast.

Bottle. Pours a black body with a tan head. Drank next to Founders Breakfast stout. Dark coffee with a light chocolate flavor with a nice oatmeal character. A great coffee beer, honestly awesome, but...not quite as good as founders.

Pours deep and dark almost black brown with thin ruby highlights. The head is a huge and long lasting creamy, capuccino colored froth. It really explodes as you pour (I ended up with a pretty decent puddle on the kitchen counter) and leaves a substantial amount of tan lacing. Aroma is coffee, roast, a hint of char, toffee, milk chocolate, nutty nougat and some herbal, bitter hops. Flavor starts off with a great coffee taste, better than most coffees I have had. The oats are definitely present, possibly stronger than I have tasted in any other stout along with a nice toasted malt and sweet fresh barley note. There are plenty of milk chocolate, nut and vanilla flavors- almost as if I am eating a box chocolates but without the sickeningly sweet part. The finish is chocolate, herbal hops, plenty of dark roast coffee and a little burnt sugar. Body is medium, with a dry start and finish but sweet, creamy middle, a touch of alcohol towards the end and a cream covered vlevet feel throughout. This is a great stout, I have wanted to try this for a long while and BAM! it just shows up in my local beer store one day....friggin sweet. That is a huge bonus because I live in the middle of cornholes nowhere. I love you Eagle River.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2011 500 ml bottle. Totally black body with a fine, creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted coffee, chocolate and malt. Flavor is rather sweet and bitter coffee, malt and bitterhops. Again a big, heavy and balanced beer from Mikkeler. I am impressed how this beer is almost extreme in flavors, but ends up just fine and balanced after finishing a bottle.
