3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours brownish black with a rather small frothy and fizzy mocha head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sweet with roasted malts, lots of sweetened dark roast coffee, vanilla beans, dark chocolate, charred wood, burnt cookies, hay and hints of green chili and alcohol. Taste is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, sweet liquorice candy, burnt cookies, alcohol, charred wood, vanilla essence, soy sauce and hints of green chili. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly oily, round, roasted astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, charred wood, burnt cookies and hints of green chili and soy sauce. Good but a bit unbalanced...

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose good coffee, nutty. Flavors sweet nutty choco. Flavors chocolate, nutty, vanilla, dry coco powder.
on tap at Stoutfest ’14 - really enjoyable beer but didn’t come off with strong coffee notes, lots of vanilla helping round it all out, thin body, minimal roast to it. nice beer.

Some roast and dark chocolate. This is certainly nice. It’s medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, lightish carbonation. Pretty nice beer.

Le nez et l’arrière-goût est ce qui se rapproche le plus de la founders breakfast stout. Les notes de chocolat noir et de café au lait affluent sans retenu dans un corps onctueux et riche. Une concoction réussie.

Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a pitch black beer with a small ring of tanned head on top. Aroma of loads of coffee, light caramel and some booze detected. Flavor has loads and loads of coffee, caramel, molasses and has a quite bitter aftertaste. Nicely balanced, very decent.
