Thanks to goldtwins for this one. 2006 version. 12 oz bottle. Pitch black beer with a thick dark brown head. Tight lace. Beautiful aroma, oatmeal, milk chocolate, toast/roast and even a bit of raisin. Rich oatmealy body. Full-bodied, sweet chocolate and coffeeish roasty flavour. Very rich roasty finish but without any astringency or bitterness. Wonderfully smooth, rich and sweet. Like breakfast in a glass, which I gather was the point. Lingering sweet toastiness and roast. Amazingly drinkable and very tasty.

Thank you very much TAR for this bottle. This beer rules. Hugely underappreciated. Big coffee flavor up front. Also: chocolate, tobacco, leather, hops, cherries, oatmeal (cookies), alcohol. Simultaneously dry and sweet, but probably more sweet. The real killer here is the mouthfeel. It feels like eating a cookie. Chewy, grainy and thick, in the best possible of ways. Even the carbonation rolls around on the tongue to add body. Like a chocolate covered coffee bean oatmeal raisin cookie. Just spectacular.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2007 Pours dark black, with a fading tan head. Fantastic aroma of coffee (obviously) and plenty of chocolate. The flavor is a well balanced mix of strong coffee, chocolate, oats, and roastiness.

Enjoyed this one at the Oak Cafe courtesy of MikeMac. Aroma was of rich chocolate and coffee. Aroma seemed weak after having the kent. bourbon breakfast stout before this. This was very smooth though and the alcohol was barely noticable. Nice beer.

Opaque black body, tan head that dies away. Scent of cold coffee. Probably better as it warms. Rich, thick coffee flavour with some oatmeal and a teeny bit of malt. Very nice.

Huge thanks for brentfeesh for sending this to me. Prefect appearance with a deep brown body and a creamy brown head. Fruit and coffee based aroma, roasted malts also come to play. Excellent body, creamy smooth with an awesome taste. Coffee and oatmeal definatly show up nicely, roasted malts and chocolate are also present. Roasted, dry finish.

Pours black/brown with too liitle head to mention. The aroma is ripe fruit perfumy hops and roasty maky. Taste is much the same. Dry/slightly sour finish. Palate a lot thinner than I expected from the pour. Decent,,,

Absolutely opaque, black with a bright brown head that has red highlights. Interesting aroma that comes through mainly as milk, milk chocolate, subtle dark fruit, and brown sugar. Other aroma intricacies include a graininess from the oatmeal, no sign of the coffee. The flavor though, shows plenty of coffee. Many of the aroma components are in the flavor but are subdued (I find this quite often in unfiltered, not fully fined beer). This is a big beer but it is not overly complex. The "velvety smoothness" from the flaked barley and oatmeal seems to overly "smoothify" the beer and creates a muddy, uncomplex palate.

This is a tasty brew from a brewery that is fast becoming my favorite Georgia brewery (a shame that Dogwood closed...). The beer pours very dark. The aroma is of baking cookies, some coffee bitterness, a little hop aroma. The mouthfeel is excellent (I love what oatmeal does to a beers texture). The flavor has hints of oatmeal-chocolate-chip-cookie, some coffee and roasted barley bitterness. And theres a touch of hops to balance the beer and provide more complexity to the flavor profile. You know its a strong beer - the alcohol flavor isnt too strong, but the thick consistency and very strong malt flavor gives it away. All in all a very nice beer.
