So I actually drank this for breakfast on the weekend. Large dark an head with a very dark brown body. Beautiful beer. Nose of nutty malt, coffee, coffee, coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, smoke and a hint of dark fruit. Flavors of dark roasted coffee, sweet chocolate, oats, and hints of smoke and dark fruit. Mouthfeel is smooth with a medium body. Damn good beer, but way to expensive.

Bottle shared with Ross and Daniel. Thanks guys. This thing looked amazing in the glass, big, dark, down and dirty black color with a deep brown head. Smell is all coffee and sweet chocolate and in a nice one to sniff. Taste is very smooth. The smoothness of the palate was the first thing I noticed then coffee and sweet chocolate come next. I was expecting this to be more "roasted" in taste but it was not so. I suppose this is why this smooth drinkin’ stout can be consumed for breakfast. Man, this stuff was good.

Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Charcoal black body, medium to thick ochre head. Deep, complex aroma of coffee, rich roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, smoke, and hints of dried dark fruit. Vinous. The flavor wasn’t quite as impressive, but was excellent nonetheless, with plenty of bitter coffee beans backed by slightly sweet burnt brown sugars, licorice, and roasted malts. Bitter, somewhat astringent finish. The touch of fruity sweetness beneath the bitter roast and coffee is a big plus. Very good beer.

Bottle from Brandon. Thanks. Pours out a dark brown color with a thick tan head on it. Smell is full of coffee and oatmeal, some chocolate, but not as bold as Olfabrikken (sp?) porter. Rich and some nice roasted malt smells. Taste is smooth and rich, bold, and very much like a pot full of black coffee. It is not as pronounced as founders breakfast stout is, but damn, this is a very good beer. I hope to see alot more of their beers hit the states.

Looks like espresso and smells like a good cappuccino. Perfectly balanced and rich.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2008 22oz bottle. pours pitch black with creamy dark-tan head. nose has lots of coffee and dark chocolate, very roasty, and oats. flavor seems lacking, some coffee roast and chocolate but not robust enough. i keep wanting this to be an imperial stout even though it’s still 7.5%abv it’s not big enough. it’s drinkable, light, and just a flavorful coffee stout. the body seems oddly thin and palate short, a stale coffee note in the finish. i wouldn’t mind drinking a few pints of this at the pub but I don’t find it something special or top 50 worthy. i can see why this has been slipping in the top 50. the beer does look beautiful, could use some piney hops for a touch of bitterness. the head has a great wealth of dark shades and beige, gray, tan, and chocolate shades. really cool looking. now i’m glad chicago is gettting mikkeller now but about $13 bomber for a coffee stout is outragous.3.7.

7/15/08, 22oz bottle. aged 1 year. thanks to holdenn for sharing! what a beautiful looking stout, i mean the head is so creamy and dark it is crazy looking. very ten fidy esque. aroma is loaded with coffee and roast. flavor is less coffee notes but strong roast and chocolate. if this was canned and in a 6 pack i would drink it all the time. great brew. I think this time I wasn’t concerned with the hype as I was in the first rate (grant it that was when this was first released in the US) so I was able to really appreciate this beer for what it is, a great coffee stout. 4.0.

OleR (4597) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2007
Bottle. A dense espresso head over a near black, opaque body. Sweet licorice and dark coffee in the aroma. Scents of earthy hops. Very flavor-full; Roasted/burnt malts, dark coffe and dark chocolate, with a hoppy bite and an underlying gentle sweetness. Full body. Soft and smooth in the mouth. Lingering bitter and coffee-ish end. Very nice.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2008 visually this the most stuning beer i’ve ever seen. Thick and dark this lovely beer yield’ed around 3 fingers of thick frothy head that slowly gave way to about one finger. Excellent lacing! Nice oatmeal stout with a nice blast of expresso and chocolate. Cant wait to drink this again, maybe at brunch!!!
