UPDATED: FEB 1, 2009 Aroma: A traditional stout smell hits you right away, but as you go deeper into the glass you really begin to notice the intense aroma of (duh!) coffee beans. I seriously love the smell of dark-roasted bitter coffee and there is all kinds of it going on in this glass. Another smell and I get a nice touch of molasses and a very faint smell of roasted almonds. There is not a whole lot of chocolate in this one for me, which I suppose is just fine. Appearance: This is the color youd expect for a stout black. I poured rather softly and still got about two or three fingers of nice warm light brown head. A short but brisk swirl of the glass will bring back a nice little head to enjoy with the next sip. Flavor: Yep, this is really full of coffee flavors that immediately hit my tongue. Once down, it leaves behind the slightest bit of tartness, and Im certainly not tasting the 7.5% ABV. So I guess all I need now is some waffles and bacon to wash this down. Palate: Although this is an extremely flavorful stout, I really dont feel like its too heavy on the palate. The thickness is moderate. For as much intensity as it brings, it does a really nice job of moving along down your throat. Overall Impression: Beer Geek Breakfast is without a doubt the most appropriate name for this beer. If you are any sort of a stout and/or strong coffee lover, you will not be let down by this brew. Thank goodness I havent even made it half way through this bottle yet because Im felling pretty happy. One thing I can assure you of is that the next time I open one of these beers, its going to be breakfast for dinner at my house.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 Black with a huge brown head. Aroma is luscious coffee and chocolate. Flavor is great! Excellent complexity from the different malts, hops and oats. Balanced well by the coffee character throughout. Brilliant. I would definitely have this with breakfast. For the price, only worth getting every one in a while as a treat.

pitch black with large tan head. roasted nose with moderate to low carbonation. flavor is suprisingly bitter with some roasted malt and a nice lingering chocolatey finish. i let this beer age for almost 8 months and i fear the coffee flavor may have settled out because there is no way this is a 4+ otherwise

What a great pour! Thick and rich black beer with a big tan head akin to shaving cream. Thick sticky lacing. The nose is pleasant with roasted notes, coffee,chocolate, and dark fruit. In the mouth the beer is thick and powdery. It offers a hop based effervescent zing that causes pin pricks on the tongue. Flavors are coffee, chocolate, spice, and a surprisingly big hop bite that meets the malt eye to eye. This beer combines big flavors with amazing subtleties. When this beer was brewed Saint Arnold, the Patron Saint of Beer, smiled broadly. Hopefully he had a pint.

Beautiful thick, viscous, deep brown pour with a creamy two finger thick head that leaves chunks as it subsides. Rich nose with coffee and malted chocolate. The flavor is even richer and more complex with the same influences and roasted malts. Slight bitter coffee finish. Creamy oat finish.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2009 500mL bottle from a local group order. Pours out a beautiful pitch black, with a medium brown coloured head. The aroma is just awesome, exactly what I love in a stout. Roasty as hell, tons of coffee and burnt toast, but with a really nice piney hoppy edge and a sweet molasses component adding balance. Flavour perfectly reflects the aroma, with a very sharp biting bitterness that is just awesome. Theres a good 2cm of sludge at the bottom of the bottle, which on its own smells surprisingly hoppy and IMHO is delicious. A slight sour touch in the finish that seems to be from the yeast or oats, it fits. Goes great with the rest of the beer too. Awesome body what with the ample amount of oats, and surprisingly carbonated. This is probably the best stout Ive had to date, theres just nothing not to like about it. It really would be a great breakfast beer!

Bottle. Poured black viscous body with a thick yet fluffy chocolate colored head that resembled the cellular structure of bread. Aroma was very pleasant and very sweet. Redolent of coffee obviously, chocolate, oak, vanilla, sweet oat malt and acidic hops - which blended together into a sort of maple syrup-citrus flavor which was amazing. The flavor was sweetly malty then strong bitter coffee (good), citric hops and a carbonated bite that left only a lingering bitter roast and oak finish. The palate was also intensely comforting; creamy and smooth without being heavy or soporific. I would eat this on my wheaties any day.

Pours a thick black with a huge creamy head. Aroma of coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and dark fruit. Full mouth feel with a slight alcohol burn. Full flavor of coffee, excellent with breakfast. An excellent stout from an excellent brewer.
