Bottiglia, colore nero impenetrabile con una schiuma mediamente persistente, al naso emergono note tostate con una nota di caffè lunghissima a farla da padrone, al palato si riconferma il caffè unito al malto e nel finale una leggerissima luppolatura. Fantastica stout.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Poured from 11.2oz brown bottle into nucleated schooner glass, an opaque black colour with deep sudsy brown foam, long-lasting with fine lace. Beautiful. Rich malts, grainy, fruity, dark chocolate, dark coffee, brown bread, toast with orange marmalade, roasty, stone fruit esters, pleasant sharpness from burnt barley grains. Somehow both chewy and creamy. Sweet and bitter. Smooth and tart. Full-bodied and dry-finish. I know they use Centennial and Cascade hops, but this has a definite English Fuggles-ish earthiness too. Full-bodied, big chewy mouthfeel, subtle tannins and mineral essence, average carbonation, lingering multi-layered aftertastes with a hoppy snap and bright coffee acidity at finish. God this is insanely delicious, one of the best beers I’ve ever tasted, difficult to imagine a more perfect combination of flavours.

Hands down one of the best beers there is! Very complex yet balanced taste-diversity. Nice dark malts and licorice, but still enough dark chocholate and hop bitterness to give enough edge.

Persistent foam. Scent senses are sharpened by the meeting with high-quality coffee and light pleasant hop, while the taste buds angrily turned on the hard roasted malt tones of coffee easily gentle bitterness and slightly English licorice gently holds it all together until hop bitterness takes over prolonged aftertaste. If you close your eyes sharpened taste impression and the brain gets the necessary time and space to the aforementioned impressions. There are not enough words of praise for the Beer Geek Breakfast. It is far too profound and all-encompassing.

Pours black, nice brown head. Great, very intense, roasted aroma of coffee and chocolate. Very complex taste - sour, then sweet and bitter at finish. Notes of coffee in this beer are simply amazing. Medium bitterness, very smooth. Great!

On cask. Pours a dark black with thin brown head. Has a strong coffee/espresso and chocolate aroma. Taste is strong with chocolate, roasted malts, coffee/espresso, grains and light dark fruit. A very dry malt and grain aftertaste.
