3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a glass tulip.
Aroma: A strong coffee scent, with slight roasty chocolate notes.
Appearance: Poured very hard for about 2 fingers of tan head, which disappears quickly. Opaque black in color.
Taste: A strong roasty coffee flavor, with that pleasant bitter coffee after-taste on the back of your tongue.
Palate: Dense and creamy.
This tastes similar to Founders Breakfast Stout, but I prefer the Founders. This is still, a delicious brew.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 Tap at new bohemia in golden valley. 10oz pour. Black with small off white head. Smells of alcohol and chocolate . Smooth, sweet flavor with some chocolate elements. More flavor development as it warms. Good. Glad the devil made me do it.

On tap @ Radio Maria. Black and viscous with a persistent khaki head. Loads of creamy coffee character, silky mouthfeel, full and richly roasty, moderately bitter finish. Yum.

Bottle shared with dusty and Brian...nose is all coffee and a dark roast at that....taste mellows out a lot...more oatmeal comes and the coffee doesn’t dominate.

Amazing vanilla wood barrel and bourbon nose. With lots of coffee aroma. Coffee however on tongue is almost to strong. Still a great light sweetness and a great beer.
