Big thanks to battlekow for this incredible brew!

A: Probably the coolest label art ever. Opens with a soft hiss. Pours a dead black color with very little head. (my only gripe with this beer.)

S: Big whiff of dark coffee. Smells sort of like those bitter little gems of coffee I'd get when I was in Bahrain. Mild sweet chocolatey smells underneath the coffee. Barest hint of an alcohol smell. Very nice.

T: Bliss. From the smell I was expecting a big hit of burny coffee ground flavor. What I got was wonderfully different. Soft chocolate tastes that meld beautifully with a soft but bold coffee taste that reminds me of good coffee brewed in a French Press. Sweet malty flavor comes late. Finish is a touch of hops to give a bit of a bitter punch that just makes me want to sip again to get back to that wonderful flavor. Wow is this ever tasty!

M: Full bodied. Smooth as velvet feeling. Breakfast Stout indeed! This beer just feels like a meal in a glass. Moderate carbonation. Alcohol is warming in the belly, other than that I'd never guess that this one weighs in at 8.3%.

D&N: Highly deserving of being one of the Best of BA. Every sip offers a different view of this beer, the flavors and aromas meld and dance and change seemingly with every sip. Unbelievable complexity. This is a beer that everyone should try, and keep a few on hand if you are lucky enough. I can't thank you enough, battlekow, for sending this one my way.

Edit to add: One of the few beers that I looked into my empty oversized wine glass and just sighed... Such a good beer, so sad it's gone.
