A well- balanced stout. The coffee is not too overpowering. The chocolate aspect of the flavor (chocolate malt?) compliments the coffee. This would be great with a rich and decadent chocolate cake!

cluny6 (115) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
Pours a dark, almost black brown. When served in a pint glass, it gave me a 2cm head which qiuckly dissipated. The aroma is of coffe laced with a bit of alcohol. The flavor is chocolaty with a lot of coffee notes. a bit of hops. low carbonation. A very good stout although not my favorite style (stouts)

Beaver (1274) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2007
22 oz bottle. Pours an extremely dark and opaque black-brown with a dark brown head that quickly recedes to a thin film that laces the glass some.

The aroma is chocolate malts, oatmeal, lactose, dark fruits and vinous alcohol.

The flavor is chocolate with some slightly tart and sour fruits (seem a little out of place) leading to a roasted grainy and acidic coffee and tar finish that is quite bitter. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, a little low on carbonation, but extremely velvety - one of the first things I noticed as I sipped it.

Overall, a fun well-made beer. I’d prefer less hops and more coffee though (never thought I’d say that!). I really want to love this, but it is just shy of an awesome beer...still very good though (albeit expensive).

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Pours a dark dark brown to black with a decent light brown to tan head, diminishing. The nose is basic coffee stout. There’s a full bodiedness to this beer that goes beyond weak as shit coffee stout, but this lacks the umph of a coffee imperial stout. Rond sweetness, but still that acrid coffee sweetness like in Schlafly’s Coffee Stout is still there. Otherwise, the profile has more in common with Founder’s Breakfast Stout. Thick on the palate without too much carbonation and decent viscosity. The nose predicts the flavors well. Too much of that coffee flavor that disagrees with me. The oats give a soft sweetness, that I think should be slightly amped up. Not that this is too harsh with sweetness. The coffee roast comes on strong in a surprisingly dry clean finish. Not bad, but slightly below my high expectations.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Huge espresso and dark chocolate nose and taste. Very velvety smooth on the palate. Has bold and intense flavors and aroma. I need to try one with pancakes in the morning (followed by a nap).

Roasty smoky thick aroma. This is a beautiful looking beer. Very smooth, and doesn’t seem strong at all. A great grainy finish with lots of oatmeal.

650 ml bottle mail order from liquidsolutions. Black with a fizzy brown head. Strong chocolate, cherry, and coffee aroma. Bright velvetty palate. Bitter dark chocolate, espresso, and smokey taste with some citrus notes to the finish. Very good.

Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast 22 oz bomber Moderate pour in a snifter. Unknown brewing, snacked on 08/07 Poured black with a large frothy mostly lasting dark mocha head. Smelt of strong premium roast coffee, rich burnt malt, dark chocolate. Taste was upfront strong sweet dark chocolate malt, and strong bitter coffee and burnt malt followed by more of the same, with a stronger coffee aroma and a slight dry yeastiness on a long lingering coffee finish. Palate was medium to full bodied, rich and creamy, lively carbonated and strongly astringent. Overall, this beer is great aromatherapy, and the flavors are pure bliss. It seemed a bit heavy to drink on a hot August night, though. Heavy coffee stouts being my favorite style, its hard for me not to like it, but without being biased I still think this is a very well done brew.
