UPDATED: MAY 6, 2008 Huge aroma of fresh coffee. Slightly intimidating. Taste has strong coffee, but it doesn’t dominate, there is still room for roasted notes and faint chocolate. Solid porter.

A very nice porter. Full bodied. The oatmeal is there, and so is the coffee. But even while coffee is the dominant character, it doesn’t overwhelm the malt and chocolate flavors.

12 oz bottle shared with willblake and Dickinsonbeer. Poured a deep dark black with a light brown head that left an oily resin on my glass. Aroma (my first 10 ever) is ridiculous, it smells so much like coffee I would swear I was standing inside an air conditioned Dunkin Donuts. This one goes down smooth and creamy with a nice medium/full palate and some light carbonation. Flavor is coffee, espresso, roasted malt....excellent. This is one great beer.

Thick and black with thick brown creamy head. Big aroma and flavor of rish roasty malt, coffee and thick creamy body. Great beer! Wish it had a bit more alcohol. Got more Bockyhorsey???

Bottled. Dark reddish brown. Light brown head. Unroasted coffee, light cocoa, brown sugar, spice and some roast in the aroma. Flavour is roasted, sweet, loads of coffee, sweet and sugary. Very smooth. Full bodied. Is roasted and sweet in the end. Fantastic brew. Thanks to Ugshmash for this brew.

Pours an almost black body like a stout with a thin lasting head. Aroma is coffee and cream, mocha, dark chocolates, vanilla and oatmealy. Intense coffee flavor but it isnt sharp or astringent it is smooth - kinda like a frappacino. Moderate sweetness and a nice long lasting aftertaste. Reminded me a lot of the Founders Breakfast stout which we had previous to this one.

This should be a stout. It pours dark black with notes of coffee and bitter chocolate. Those flavors smoothly reflect the mouthfeel thanks to the oatmeal. A Nice LONG finish.

Bottle. Pours dark rich oily brown... almost black. Minimal head and looks like minimal carbonation as well. Smells like breakfast (brewing coffee and oatmeal). Fairly rich on the palate with silky smooth carbonation. Roasted malt and coffee... lots and lots of coffee. Not a ton of hops. Fairly one-dimensional, as far as the coffee goes. I kinda like it, but I’m not a coffee snob...
