Pours pitch black with a smooth head. Aroma of roasty malts, coffee, licorice, cocoa, wood, vanilla and chocolate. Taste is smooth, heavy and roasty with some coffee, chocolate, licorice and cocoa. Finish is sweetish, roasty and heavy with some coffee notes. Pretty tasty.

MartinT (9535) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Latte and chocolate combine atop comfy residual sugars in this easygoing dessert beer.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the blackness.
-Carbonation is surprisingly bubbly for this type of beer. Probably makes the body feel lighter than it actually is.
-Molasses are also perceived in the middle.
-Alcohol gets swallowed up by the dessert-y sugars.
-This feels lighter than Founders Breakfast Stout, for example, yet exhibits many of the same notes.

On tap at the brewpub.

joeneugs (6105) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 3, 2015
On tap at PP Ocean Beach. It pours dark brown with an off white head. The aroma has strong coffee, roast, vanilla and rich chocolate. The flavor is the same. Huge coffee, creamer with vanilla and chocolate. Very rich, smooth and decadent. Yum.

Killer stout on tap. So good coffe and French roast. Excellent complexity on all the roast insets and coffe notes. Yes for breakfast as Bagby has mentioned in past. Just gotta go try it.
