Hello, knocked my socks off. Poured a dark oil slick black with a very very thin tan head. Had heavy hints of expresso, chocolate, and other earth tastes. Not to sweet nor dry. Perfect carbonation, not filling either. Finished well bodied and

Pours pitch black with an ample brown head. Bakers chocolate, roasted coffee, oatmeal, dark ripe cherries. Disappointing body. Would expect something rich and robust and thick and oily, but it was more medium bodied with more carbonation than I care for in a stout. Flavor was a nice blend of the aromatic elements. Quite good but not as good as Founders Breakfast or Kentucky Breakfast.

Bottle@GBBF 2007. Black beer with a coffee coloured head. The aroma is malty and the flavour is dark, malty, vinous and not that dry. Overall a reasonable dark beer that is quite malty.

Poured a really dark black with a pretty tan head...really perfect looking. Great aroma that smells like my garage after I have been roasting coffee. Lots of coffee up front, really nice but finishes a bit astringent and bitter. I would have liked a bit more sweet cream flavor with the oats, but still a nice beer.

22.3 oz bottle - Rating #1000! I’ve been digging the stouts lately, so it seemed fitting to grab such a well regarded stout for the thousandth rating. It pours black with a big dark tan head. The aroma is of dark roast malt and plenty of coffee. The roast malt and coffee are well balanced in the flavor. Let it warm for awhile and enjoy the full bodied darkly roasted experience. It’s also got moderately strong hops that are even more apparent in the finish. This is not a sweet stout. I wouldn’t call it a terribly complex beer, but it sets out to be a coffee stout and it does that extremely well. Delicious! Now to celebrate with a bottle of Westvleteren 12!

Brown pour with tan head. Huge coffee aroma with chocolate sidenotes. Flavor was very espresso like with some solid chocolate, minor hops and of course malt thrown into the mix. very solid beer.

Courtesy dsnowden. Black, black/brown edges. 3cm of chocolate milk shake head. Looks great. Flavor and aroma of roasty and grainy malt, roasted coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and subtle resinous hops. Medium/full body, balanced carbonation. Rich yet easy to drink. Really would be an excellent breakfast beer. Top notch stout.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2008 Black body with an initially medium tan head. Aroma is very roasted, fresh citrusy hops and pastry dough. Main flavours are the usual three amigos: roastiness, chocolate and coffee beans. The chocolate flavour is not like black bitter chocolate, it is more like rich chocolate cake with a sweet chocolate cream. The high roastiness level (may be a bit too roasted) detracts the attention away from the rich and smooth chocolate. The roasted coffee beans flavour are there but not as upfront as with many breakfast stouts. A very pleasant astringency lighten up the experience. This generously hopped beer develops some kind of green apples flavour/astringency in the finish that makes a bottle go down even more quickly. Full but silk body with soft carbonation. Certainly one my favourite “little” stouts ever (8% and less). Feels like a 5%. And yes, I’ve been a beer geek on at least one occasion.

Bottle from Brawleys. I had to buy this in another state ’cause all the dudes in this GA hoarded all of it. Nice stout. I’m getting ready for the time of year when these go perfectly. Smooth and slightly sweet. All the elements play well here. Oat malt gives some body. Coffee aromas and slight bitter coffee flavor. Some bittersweet chocolate notes in there too. Creamy texture. Big brown head.

Bottle, from Sam’s Blue Light. 9/3/07. Real good aroma, sweet & roasty, Oat, coffee, milk, cocoa, banana. Blackish brown color, good cocoa beige head that slowly faded to a small cover. Bittersweet flavor, Coffee, baking chocolate, little dairy, little viney. Thick body, creamy mouthfeel, dry finish with a bitter streak. Very good stout. Enjoyed every drop, Flavor was great the whole way through. Body might of thinned a bit as it warmed.
