Courtesy of Gilliard. There is a very intense and pleasant fresh coffee aroma with mild roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla notes. Simple, but awesome. The body is black with a wispy, but lasting, tan head. Chocolate, coffee, sweet cream, vanilla and mild toasted caramel notes are prominent int he flavor profile. I don’t get much int he way of bourbon, but it tastes great so I don’t miss it any. Tasty.

Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours a clear amber with no head. The aroma is strong roast, coffee bean, and booze. Thin mouthfeel with nice roast, dark chocolate, light heat, wood, sweet finish. Very good.

> Green coffee and bourbon, maple, brown sugar breakfast stout

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ motorheadtodd ][ Trade ][ Hotel Room Garbage Glass ][ 8.16.14 ]
>> Thank you Todd! Black pour, great tan foam with good retention. Nose begins with green jalapeños, spicy green coffee. Taste is dusty dark chocolate, silkier chocolate, a good amount of brown sugar and maple, warming bourbon. Has a bourbon maple pancake type taste with sweetened coffee. A breakfast stout for sure. Really nice.

Bottle as a trade extra from I forget who. Thanks! Pours dark brown to black with some light showing through on the pour but not in the glass, with a small khaki brown head. Huge earthy spicy coffee aroma, sweet lactose and chocolate. Flavor is a rush vanilla coffee combo, very smooth and decadent, without the harsh coffee spice. Wow this is very smooth. Not much bourbon, just a hint of oakiness. Medium bodied and very silky, low plus carbonation, lasting chocolate coffee finish on the tongue. Very nice.

Bottle - Pours dark brown/black w/ tan head. Hints of vanilla, oak, oatmeal, and bourbon in the nose. Rich chocolate flavor and a nice oatmeal feel on the palate. Very smooth overall!!!

12 oz bottle shared by huhzubendah, thanks Matt. Pours a clear dark caramel brown. Nearly headless, just a tiny wisp appears when swirled. Aroma leapt out of the bottle into my nose. Chocolate malt, sweet malts, coffee, and the caramelly complexity of bourbon. Flavor is porter roastiness, chocolate, caramel, nutty coffee and a smooth bourbon finish. This tastes bigger than 8%, nicely done. Sweet caramel aftertaste, thin to medium mouthfeel. Solid.

Overall mine was flat, not a good start. Decent flavor albeit it a bit hot. Finish was thin and mostly just alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
