A heavy strong stout brewed with coffee, brown sugar and oats. With its powerful quality and morning ingredients it seems parallel to a solid dawn session at Blacks. An inside connection to boutique roasted fare trade beans we were granted the opportunity to make this exceptional brew.

PartyFowle (954) - - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle. Impenetrable black -- no dawn here. Half a finger of fuzzy tan head pops away quickly. Rich, savory aroma. A little soy, spicy coffee, burnt toast, booze, a flash of sourdough. Spicy, oily coffee, black pepper and toasted sourdough up front in the flavor. Sweeter at the swallow, smoothed out by oats and milk chocolate. Bitterness lingers on sides of the tongue. High, pinching carbonation in a smooth medium body. Not too heavy, holds together as it moves. Not a ton of heat either. Good not great. There are better stouts with clearer coffee flavor.

Bamsen78 (5220) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 11, 2015
Bottle @ Post-Easter Procrastination, Ulfborg. Pours hazy very dark brown with small tan head. Clear aroma of roast and coffee, with notes of malt and touches of hops and liquorice. Sweetish, malty flavour with notes of fruit and bitter, roasty and coffee-like touches. Hints of lactose. Roasty and sourish aftertaste. Okay but would be even better without the sourish hints.

Oscbert (1277) - Lincoln, California, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Strong aroma of wet coffee grounds. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, tobacco, tar, a bit acrid Pours pitch black with small wispy but creamy yellowish head Strong coffee flavor balanced fairly well with roasty malts. Chocolate, ash, bread, burnt wood. Medium full bodied with low CO2, lingering burnt finish. Decent beer. I prefer dark fruity and malty Imperial Stouts compared to roasty burnt ones, so this isn't really my cup of tea or cup of coffee. Still an enjoyable sipper. Wouldn't buy again though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

glennmastrange (2776) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of toasted cereal, dark chocolate and strong coffee, light resin for the hops, moderate earth for the yeast. Head is small, frothy, beige with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then the long finishes is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic. Palate is medium to full, creamy, with a soft carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. Not as bold and powerful as I like in an Imperial Stout, but it’s easy drinking quality puts it up right up there for the style.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottled. Poured deep brown with an easily-resuscitated toasted beige head. The aroma picked up roasted coffee and biscuity malts with a little herbal weirdness around. The flavor found burnt and lightly astringent black and coffee malts.. touches of vanilla accented.. finished smoky and a bit astringent. Medium-plus bodied and a tad sharp on the palate.. moderate carbonation.. OK stuff.

Bottle sample at the tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 2/5/15. Darkest brown pour with a thick light brown head. Aroma of butter, malt, chocolate, caramel and roast. Malty and buttery flavor with chocolate and roast accents before a boozy finish.
