UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 12-oz., trade with JRob. Good god, what a delicious aroma. This beer pours an almost light-sucking, horsehead-nebula black. There’s a little ring of obligatory tannish head-like substance near the top; it’s a boutannier compared to the bouquet other stouts bring to the prom.
The nose is where it leaves the other stouts to the side, though: this one’s burnin’ nitro and everyone else is happy just to be blown or injected, one or the other: cookie dough, chocolate, oats, vanilla, cola. This is probably the first beer to make me genuinely grateful for having picked up the habit of stopping and smelling a beer consciously.
The body’s not much to look at; succulent black color but no visible carb, nothing happening up top or on the sides. The attack, though, man; there’s loads of coffee, chocolate, and oatmeal--as you’d fully expect--and they carry through to the finish. The hops are just there to clean things up and get you propped back up to vertical before you fall off the cliff. This is just a yummy stout, though, for the uninitiated, it’s closer to a Sweet than an Imperial. This isn’t a 6-pack beer, it’s a by-the-case beer.

Thanks to goldtwins for this one. 2006 version. 12 oz bottle. Pitch black beer with a thick dark brown head. Tight lace. Beautiful aroma, oatmeal, milk chocolate, toast/roast and even a bit of raisin. Rich oatmealy body. Full-bodied, sweet chocolate and coffeeish roasty flavour. Very rich roasty finish but without any astringency or bitterness. Wonderfully smooth, rich and sweet. Like breakfast in a glass, which I gather was the point. Lingering sweet toastiness and roast. Amazingly drinkable and very tasty.

Thank you very much TAR for this bottle. This beer rules. Hugely underappreciated. Big coffee flavor up front. Also: chocolate, tobacco, leather, hops, cherries, oatmeal (cookies), alcohol. Simultaneously dry and sweet, but probably more sweet. The real killer here is the mouthfeel. It feels like eating a cookie. Chewy, grainy and thick, in the best possible of ways. Even the carbonation rolls around on the tongue to add body. Like a chocolate covered coffee bean oatmeal raisin cookie. Just spectacular.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2007 Pours dark black, with a fading tan head. Fantastic aroma of coffee (obviously) and plenty of chocolate. The flavor is a well balanced mix of strong coffee, chocolate, oats, and roastiness.

Enjoyed this one at the Oak Cafe courtesy of MikeMac. Aroma was of rich chocolate and coffee. Aroma seemed weak after having the kent. bourbon breakfast stout before this. This was very smooth though and the alcohol was barely noticable. Nice beer.

Opaque black body, tan head that dies away. Scent of cold coffee. Probably better as it warms. Rich, thick coffee flavour with some oatmeal and a teeny bit of malt. Very nice.

Huge thanks for brentfeesh for sending this to me. Prefect appearance with a deep brown body and a creamy brown head. Fruit and coffee based aroma, roasted malts also come to play. Excellent body, creamy smooth with an awesome taste. Coffee and oatmeal definatly show up nicely, roasted malts and chocolate are also present. Roasted, dry finish.

Pours black/brown with too liitle head to mention. The aroma is ripe fruit perfumy hops and roasty maky. Taste is much the same. Dry/slightly sour finish. Palate a lot thinner than I expected from the pour. Decent,,,
