22oz bottle shared, Pitch black motor oil pour which i love, goes nicely into a big brown chocolate milk head, taste is very sweet and leaves sugary sensation on my lips, each sip makes me want more, this is like a smoother FBS. and quite good indeed.

Bottle purchased at Liquor Max in Loveland. Pours opaque with a small, dark brown, creamy head, somewhat diminishing, fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (coffee, chocolate, toasted grain), heavy hops (perfume, grass), average yeast (leather) with notes of light alcohol, raisins, smoke and vanilla. Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness; dark roasted coffee, dark and slightly bitter chocolate, wood and smoke flavors.

This fine Stout pours a glossy near-black color with a thick and rocky light brown head that has good retention. Nice big patches of lacing on the glass. Big roasty aroma of coffee, oats, and chocolate malt. Rich, smooth body with a character somewhere between an Oatmeal Stout and an Imperial Stout. Flavors of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and hops are all present. All in all the beer manages the smooth texture and flavor of an Oatmeal Stout while toying with the robust body of an Imperial. The finish is moderately bitter coffee and hops balanced but malt and chocolate. Overall this is an excellent Stout.

The flavors of an imperial stout, but the alcohol and dryness of a stout. Black body with big-bubbled, tan head. Rich aroma of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. The flavor is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Very dry finish along with a coffee bitterness. Medium body and slightly watery texture. Velvety mouthfeel. Excellent.

Actually tastes like crappy acidic coffee. Some creamy oatmeal smoothness in there, but otherwise it’s harsh and bitter. I don’t mind the bitterness, but the acidity is too much. Somewhat watery as well. Smooth palate disappears quite fast and gets thin. Vanilla flavor is there as well. Flavorful, but just doesn’t blow me away at all.

Thanks to my Secret Santa, July 2007: Pours oil can black with a healthy mocha head that slowly fades. The aroma is deep and rich - lots of dark chocolate, cocoa, vanilla bean, mocha, roasted malt and earth. The oats create a full and chewy mouthfeel, the perfect vehicle for the rich body. The body is loaded with bitter chocolate, caramel and espresso. A slight atringency from the coffee is the only real flaw I can see. Good, good stuff.

I actually saved it to have it with breakfast. Jet black in the glass with a nice tan head. Roasted aroma with some sweetness involved. Tasted just about how it reads on the bottle. Very smooth. Finish leaves only a hint of malt with coffee. Went great with eggs and sausage. $18.50 for the bottle here in Philly.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2008 Poured deathly, oily black with deep tan head. The aroma on this was a complete shock. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma obviously, but a distinct pine hop aroma that compliments the other aromas and adds a complexity. The aroma really makes the mouth water. Flavor was what you might expect, chocolate, cherries, malt, expresso, nuts. Finish is really smooth, extremely drinkable, with only a lasting coffee bitterness and a little chalky in the mouth. Some of the recent ratings suggest that maybe this beer is slipping in the top 50, or that maybe they overpaid for this bomber, I can’t say either. This beer was worth every penny I paid and lived up to all of my expectations. This is a stout lover’s stout. I highly recommend.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2008 Sampled in a blind tasting among Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast, Alaskan Stout, Dick’s Lava Rock Porter, and Coors Light. hah, well this was the clear winner of the night, right behind Coors Light. This was the darkest of the ales with a distinct ebony color and a dark tan head. The lacing is clingy and viscous. Man, this stuff smells great. This is easily the most robust of the four, packed full of rich chocolate, a notably fresh Latin American coffee scent, oatmeal, toasted almonds, and grill smoke. This has a dense mouthfeel with distinct, defined toasted oats, ash, rich milk chocolate, fresh java, and a delightfully tastefully syrupy finish. This is not very aggressive, just rich, balanced, bold, robust, and savory. I love it.

Bottle. Pours black with some faint reds somewhere in the body and an everlasting very dark tan head. The aroma sports tons of well defined dark roasted coffee, but that’s not all. Excellent tones of dark chocolate, ash, oatmeal, and milky sweetness are found. This is hearty and enjoyable. Though it is over-the-top in the coffee department, that flavor is well rounded with an almost sweet, roasty character. Not one dimensional by any means, Beer Geek Breakfast wows my palate with hints of toffee, chocolate, oatmeal, and a powdered milk finish.
