Enjoyed on tap at Capone's.
Poured a thick deep black with 2 fingers of creamy burnt tan head. Great retention and beautiful lacing notches all the way down. Smells of coffee, milk chocolate, roasted malt, molasses, oats, and some alcohol but not much. Tastes of molasses, roasted malt and oatmeal, coffee, chocolate syrup, espresso beans, and slight sherry notes. Full bodied with good carbonation. Smooth and creamy with great balance of bitter and sweet. Definitely a beer I can't pass up if I find it on tap. No matter what style I'm in the mood for, there's always time for breakfast!

Served at 40 degrees
Pours pitch black, allowing no light to pass through. A light brown head quickly dissolves to a thin ring. No noticeable carbonation. Decent lacing and light legging.
Rich, bitter chocolate and cocoa nibs up front backed by thick notes of roasted coffee. Hints of molasses. Not a lot to speak of beyond that, but it is very pleasing.
Bitter chocolate hits you first with a subtle smoke character. Gobs of roasted malt and coffee ride out each sip. Light notes of molasses and vanilla. Roasted coffee aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked - I'd never guess this one at 8%.
This is a full-bodied beer that will fill you up. Again, no noticeable carbonation. Smooth exit with a nice aftertaste.
This is a fantastic beer for the cold winter days we have ahead. Easy to drink, but best enjoyed slowly. Highly recommend.
