COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The coffee lovers consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Aroma: it honestly smells like a bacon and egg breakfast w/ Tobasco sauce to me, I dont care if this beer is mostly supposed to reflect coffee/chocolate flavors, this beer truly captures the essence of my Sunday breakfasts: 2 eggs, sunny side up, smothered with Tobasco verde sauce and black pepper, 3 strips of maple smoked bacon, two whole wheat toast w/ butter and cherry jelly for soaking up the yoke, strong black coffee (no cream or sugar), and a small glass of O.J., yup, thats what Im reminded of when I smell this brew; Appearance: the body is standard stout, coffee brown bordering on black, but the head is exactly as described on the bottle, a frothy cinnamon color that lingers after the pour; Taste: strong hashbrown/skillet, but also the roasty coffee and dark chocolate that this brew is known for, heavy smoke also, again, just like the aroma, the taste truly captures the essence of a breakfast; Palate: decent bitter lingers, which helps remind you that youre drinking a beer as opposed to eating a meal; Overall: I can honestly say that I loved this beer before my colleagues on RB took a liking to it too, so my rating is in no way influenced by its tremendous popularity, Ive been raving about this stout to my family and friends, and, except for one person who is not a fan of coffee, everyone has agreed that its either one of the best stouts theyve ever had, or its at least one of the better ones theyve had in a while, enjoy!

One of my favorite beers. The look is pitch black not light comes through on this one. The smell is exactly what you would think it would be small hints of chocolate and a lot of coffee. The taste is the same way lot of coffee a little chocolate with a smooth mouth fell. With this beer being 8.3% it doesnt feel like it or taste like it which makes this beer pretty dangerous to me.

On tap at Elizabeth Station. Pours an almost black with a dark beige head. Aroma is cold coffee with milk. Taste is pretty the same. Very good stuff, like you are really drinking coffee.

Dark, rich, doesnt have much carbonation. Scent of coffee and cocoa squeezes out of the bottle once its open. Notes of coffee, cocoa, caramel an oat in a great balance. Having less carbonation makes the taste more gentle and consistent. Mildly and pleasantly bitter. Hop wise, its still somewhat hoppy with a small hint of citrus note. But given that its a breakfast stout, should focus more on other taste instead of its "fruity" hoppiness. A GRRRRRREAT breakfast stout, strongly recommended. 好喝!

Prokroustis (741) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JAN 5, 2017
Pitch black body, big beige head. Incredible intense aroma full of roasted coffee, honey, a hint of strawberry and chocolate. Medium body with ideal carbonation. Great flavour with bitter chocolate, praline, coffee and indeed a hint of strawberry.

Diogne (1203) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2016
Bouteille. Bire dun noire dense surmonte dune fine mousse moka qui sestompe rapidement. Au nez, cest la fois doux et trs aromatique avec des armes de caf, de chocolat au lait, de vanille, de pain lgrement brl, de sucre, de grains torrfis et une touche harbace. En bouche, les saveurs sont les mmes, dans un bel quilibre, accompagne dune pointe dalcool assez prononce. Contrairement dautres stouts au caf, celle-ci nest pas trop amre et ne vient pas avec une saveur dsagrable de tabac ou de craie. La texture est onctueuse. Cest trs russi, mais lalcool est peut-tre un peu trop prsent.

skullgeorge (83) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - DEC 28, 2016
On tap at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, Greece. Pours black, really dark color, with a thick creamy brown, beige head. Aroma full of Roasted coffee. Taste is bitter light, full of coffee, dark roasted malts, some chocolate when it gets warmer. Perfect silky mouthful, medium to full body, easy drinkable with a dry coffee bitter aftertaste. Perfect breakfast stout.
