This beer is stupid black with a perfectly formed tan head. Plenty of lacing. The aroma is a blast of coffee. The taste is tons more coffee. This is a huge coffee flavored beer. Still, being a 7.5% stout instead of a 10% impy stout makes this sucker plenty easy to drink. Killer stuff.

bottle aquired via trade with AllAboutStout...pours black with small, ochre head..aroma of roasted coffee, dark, bitter chocolate, and a massive molasses backbone..this gives rise to a heavily roasted body of bitter chocolate, coffee, nuts, and a touch of lactose...hugely bitter, becoming sweeter as the beer warms to room temp...perfect, creamy mouthfeel...wow, this stuff was good!!!!

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2007 Pours like motor oil. How is this only 7.5 percent? A nice caramel head slowly dissipates into the beer. The aroma is not huge, but a very respectable coffee mellifluence. The taste is at first one dimensional, but as the beer warms up the layers unfold and leave a profoundly thick and oily beer with varying levels of coffee and hop bitterness and a roundness that is only equaled in the world’s best beers. This is one awesome beer. Finally, as the beer is completely drunk the hop bitterness and slight citrus linger on the palate and mix with the residual coffee sourness for ages- and it makes me wish I had another one of these beers to drink. Outstanding beer, but a little thin in the finish.

22 oz bottle from west lakeview. Pitch black with small brown head. Aroma is big coffee, chocolate and alc. Flavor of coffee, dark chocolate, alc, burnt roasted malt, and dough. Creamy, full body. Overall a very tasty brew and an excelent example of a coffee stout but in my opinion not top fifty material.

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.

Bottle. Black color with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Full roasted body with notes of roasted malt and coffee. Light chocolate sweetness on the palate, light dry. Really nice.

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