4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Definitely worthy of the top stout spot. It's like Guinness but with coffee and more ABV. One of the best coffee stouts I've tasted. Loved the strong coffee flavor.

Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours pitch black. Small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, very dark chocolate, bit of oatmeal. . Flavor is very nice dark chocolate, very roasted. Robust, and fairly thick for oatmeal. The mouthfeel makes this. Also great coffee bitterness.

Ca pe chon kaffe i en øl. Nu ryger havregrøden nok ud! Mørk og smagsfuld, meget fyldig og næsten ikke til at drikke en hel øl.

Beer geek breakfast is a nice oatmeal stout from Mikeller. I recommend the dragons milk from new holland though if it is available.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
In bottiglia. Colore nero caffé impenetrabile. Schiuma nocciola a shampoo, cremosa morbida, di dissolvenza abbastanza rapida. Naso tostato e di lievito, con note di zucchero parzialmente bruciato, caramello, torrone, nocciole e crosta di pane. Carbonazione flat. Ottimo aroma maltato, rotondo, di perfetto equilibrio e levigatura, con avena, crosta di pane, cioccolata, caramello, caffè, nocciole amare e frutta scura candita. Gusto leggermente dolce, poi amaro rotondo. Corpo leggero, trama lattica appena oleosa. Una stout d’avena praticamente perfetta, non a caso eletta tra le migliori al mondo, fresca, scorrevole e dissetante, setosa leggera e di strabiliante equilibrio.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home with my wife. Pour is deep black with a small brown head and good lacing. Big cocoa, toffee, some tobacco, earthy hips, caramel, coffee, and raisins in the aroma. Taste is tobacco, leather, espresso, toasted malt, black malt, and cookies with a lingering coffee aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Solid.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Pours coffee black with thin head. Aroma was somewhat plain with dark malt notes, some coffee and faint dark chocolate. Medium body with some back bone, not too heavy. Taste is roasty coffee, oatmeal, semi bitter dark chocolate and maybe a touch of ash on a lingering finish. Solid breakfast stout although pretty basic (but done well) and pricey. I prefer Cocoa Shake or the Flat White.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, best before May 2019. Pitch black with a thin, fluffy, rather quickly diminishing, brown head. Sweetish, roasty-malty aroma with lots of coffee, burnt nuts, tobacco, some licorice and dark chocolate. Sweetish, roasty-malty taste of coffee, dark chocolate, some licorice, tobacco and burnt nuts, followed by a short, roasty-bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice, but the aroma promised a bit more, body is a bit thin as well. Maybe too old already.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
7.3%ABV. Breakfast Stout
Tapped out black. 40ºSRM.
Nose has some nice roasted malt goodness. Smoke and umami.
Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate is crammed full of deeply roasted flavors: burnt toast, burnt ends, burnt roast pork, char Siew ends. There are also more full bodied malt flavors of black bread, rye toast, Hops if present are bitter and resinous. The alcoholic palate accentuates the resinous favor of the hops.
Finish is smoky and bitter with alcohol in the back of the throat.
Goes on Favorites List!
