Jayklew (29) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle/tulip. Poured dark, dark brown, almost black. Foamed up a bit and created a head of at least 3 fingers (the second glass poured was less foamy). The head dissipated very little and stuck around even through a refill. Burnt marshmallow color was beautiful! Great lacing left with every sip. Aroma of dark coffee. Tastes of pure coffee and hops. Almost tastes like an over brewed cup of joe due to the bitterness from the hops. Definite bitter backbone. Mouthfeel is smooth and dry. A good beer that I would try again. But not until I've had the Beer Geek Breakfast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jet black into my snifter, minimal head. Great pine aroma in the nose. Amount of coffee is just right, not over powering.

Idiosynkrasie (6412) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2012
500ml bottle. Opaque black with thick creamy lasting and lacing beige to brown head. Extreme grassy hop aroma displaces underlying coffee and dark malt notes. Very dry and hoppy stout taste, full bodied, with a subtle coffee note. Superb composition!

leaparsons (9837) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle. Black with a large beige head. Aromas are gritty coffee with melon and grapefruit. Resinous lemon with woody, floral pine. Soapy with soft spices and liquorice. Flavours are mellow oranges with yeast and dark chocolate with dark berry fruity coffee. Smoky with resinous lemon and bitter grapefruit. Marzipan alcohol. Very well balanced. A great beer.

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours oily black with a small khaki head. Nice lacing left after a while. Nose shows loads of tropical and piney hops. There is heaps there. The roasted coffee notes lurk in the background. Quite coffee eccentric mid palate with piney and resinous hops coming in and out of play. Finishes with lengthy bitterness. Would say it is more a black IPA than a stout. Freakin awesome either way

tommann (3348) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours black with a medium, coffee head. Aroma is intially strong piney hops, bitter coffee underneath. Taste has watery piney hops to start. Strong, bitter chocolate and grapefruit finish.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2012
500ml bottle, Rehills, Ncl. Putting my nose to this is like putting it into a fresh handful of hops, the roast aroma lurks is in the background. The palate is fresh and really complex - dark fruit, grass and pine resin flavours, with coffee more apparent midway, giving quite a sharp, bitter finish. Don’t think it’s a perfect combination but it makes for a really interesting big beer. Pours a thickish jet black, with a good deep coffee coloured head.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2012
On tap at Craft Beer Co. Black as hell lasting tan head. Coffee hop and oat aroma. Its a damn big beer. I mean really big. Big coffee. Malty as hell. Thick in the mouyh. I mean its like having coffee oatmeal in a glass with some cold hot chocolate and some hops. Good beer. Solid as hell. Maybe a touch to hoppy? But as its called hop breakfast what do you expect. Weasel and Brunch one for one are still my favourites of this series.

MechanicalMind (22) - Crawley, West Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep brown with a ruby tinge. Lacing tan head. Stinks of tropical hops from the off, follows through on to the palate, pineapple, mango, candied sweets, then ground coffee in the middle finishing with a lovely bitterness. Hints of nutty, oatiness on the aftertaste. Always rounded by a sweet sticky citric hop quality. Really hop forward stout this. A beer that makes you ’oof’ and smile from the moment you pop the cap till the moment you finish it
