General: Again found in a tiny beer store, thrilled to find it so I picked up 8 of them. Even at $8 a bottle (I’m in California), it’s worth every penny.

Appearance: Blacker than pitch with a magical tan head. The head is quick diminishing but it leaves lovely lace on the glass.

Aroma: Every ingredient on the label you can tell is in the glass by smell alone. The most pronounced scents are coffee and chocolate but there is a slight oatmeal heartiness that you can detect. Amazing!

Mouthfeel: So good I can’t describe it differently than “perfect”. This is what a stout should be as far as mouthfeel. It’s a little thick with a perfect carbonation.

Taste: Breakfast stout is the perfect name for this beer, it is breakfast in a glass. Tomorrow I’m actually going to have one when I wake up, the coffee and chocolate in it are a great combination and the oatmeal gives it great texture and smooths out the taste.

Overall: One of the best stouts that I’ve ever had. I really enjoy this one. I should have bought more when I had the chance, now I just need to ration it for the next couple of weeks.
