A very nice oatmeal stout. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and a touch of vanilla. Taste is slightly sweet at first from the chocolate then some bitterness and a somewhat dry finish. Lots of flavor for only 5.5%. Medium mouthfeel. Definitely recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a growler. Ruby hinted dark beer with a foamy brown head. The nose is all coffee. Lots of coffee in the flavor with some bitter chocolate. (Robin said chocolate pudding and I got some of that in this.) Very nice beer if you like coffee in your beer, which I do.

Tap: dark opaque brown with minimal head. Aroma and flavor all over the place. Lots of chocolate up front, fades to coffee and dark roasted grain, hints of vanilla. As it warms coffee starts to take over the finish. Very drinkable, could probably score higher, just not a coffee fan. Will agree with Pailhead, loses alot of character in growler form.

Nice cream head the beer appeared to be a dark brown almost black it was very dark in the pub that day mild aroma of chocolate and strong smell of coffee but not to overpowering. mild body not what I m used to for breakfast stouts. Chocolate, cream and vanilla are all evident in the flavor but theroasted coffee flavor stands out. Very drinkable would orderone again.

Sampled via growler at the Ohio Labor Day gathering. Dark brown, opaque body with a medium cream/tan head. Coffee aroma with chocolate and hints of butter/DMS. Surprisingly light, delicate flavor profile , creamy, with coffee and milk chocolate sharing the silky palate. Quite the opposite of the bruising, in-your-face Founders Breakfast Stout, this is more of a session beer.

From the Labor Day Gathering. Smell is all roasted coffee, too upfront of it for my liking. Flavor comes off as ta thin vail of coffee and backing of medium carbonation. Not that sensational, since this seems all one dimensional.

Growler. Most of what I got from this was canned chocolate pudding. A bit of coffee was there as well. Body was rather thin, and not what I expect in a stout. More like a chocolate porter. Not terrible, not something Id go back to. It was interesting, and fairly unique though, and Im glad to have tried it.

Growler at the Labor Day gathering:

Deep brown hue with reddish highlights, frothy head, and excellent lace. The aroma has notes of coffee, chocolate, walnut, grassy hops and earthy yeast esters. The taste was bitter with a light mocha and vanilla tones, some fig and berry as well. The feel is a bit watery but okay. A good stout but not great, still it was nice to try.

Very good stout. The coffee is evident, I thought about getting some take home of this for my friends....
