Wow....coffee, coffee, and more coffee...I like this beer, but it the first time I had it I immediately wished I had a Krispy Kreme doughnut!!! Talk about a coffee stout!!! Almost makes me want to add cream and sugar to it! I have another three bottles waiting for another breakfast!!

Damn good stout. Like breakfast stout but with a touch more coffee and less sweet chocolate.

Poured from a bottle. Dark brown with minimal dark tan head and lacing. Not surprisingly, coffee dominates the aroma as well as the taste, but the blending of beer and coffe in WNB is what makes it standout. A touch of sweetness (a little dark fruit shining through) offset with a nice bit of bitterness. Overall, smooth drinking "brew".

Light to medium sweet flavor with some dry roast and moderately bitter coffee. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Good bitter coffee finish with plenty of dark chocolate, baking cocoa. Awesome stuff.
