Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - FEB 26, 2010
Bottle. Almost black colour with a small brown head. The aroma of coffee with notes of malt and chocolate. Lots of coffee in the flavour with some chocolate, oat, roasted malt and slight bitterness. Medium-bodied and very smooth. Aftertaste is roasted and bitter.

Firkinpoe (25) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - FEB 23, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours completely black with absolutely no head whatsoever. This is such a wonderful beer. A superb aroma of roasted coffee beans, chocolate, caramel, oats, and a little earth. The taste is equally impressive with a HUGE roastiness. Coffee and bittersweet chocolate come together perfectly. A full bodied brew with minimal carbonation. A semi creamy texture leads to a nice bitter finish. Excellent all the way around.

12 oz bottle shared with KW group. Pours deep, deep brown in colour, big tan head. Lots of lacing. This beer is all coffee aroma and taste, too much for me, but still a huge example of the style. Very smooth drinking.

Pours a jet black with a gorgeous tan head. Nose full of coffee, crisp hops, oak, and creamy malts. Hoppy palette with notes of coffee, smoke, toasted oak, and chocolate. One of my favorite stouts for the hoppy palette.

Linnet (1773) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2010
Thick creamy big brown head, colour dark as the nordic winter night. Aroma is coffee, smoke, roasted malts, alcohol,smoked meats, fruits and some dark chocolate. Same notes in the flavour as in the nose, thick yet discrete. Balanced. Mouthfeel is smooth and dry, also a little thin for the style. Very good base, with something that would give this that little extra it would be great!

Bottle pour to snifter. Not extreme in any way. Have had Brooklyn BCS which is very bitter and Youngs DCS which is very sweet to compare it to. Very balanced with mild bitter after taste. Beautiful ebony color with very thin head. Definetely some coffee and bitter chocolate in there. Almost sticky mouth feel. Better as it warms. Definitely bitter coffee presence. As Im drinking it I am enjoying it more and more and may need to adjust my ratings before post. Yep, need to up overall score. Very nice beer!

This has to be my favorite stout to date. Dark and thick, it absolutely lives up to the "pours like motor oil" cliche. As a disclaimer, Im only just now beginning to warm to the intense flavors of Russian Imperial Stouts, and the Breakfast Stout will not really give you that level of intensity. It is, however, a smooth, creamy stout thats ready to drink now and is characterized by moderately bitter coffee and dark chocolate flavors. Its just right for me.
