Pours an absolutely pitch black as expected and a nice mokah colored creamy head which unfortunately did not last as long as I would have liked.
Aroma is outstanding, permeating the entire area around me at first. Coffee is upfront with just the right amount of wonderful roasted aromas. The chocolate also comes through with a nice sweet aroma but it is mostly overpowered by the coffee
After an outstanding aroma, the taste was almost disappointing at first. However, as it warms a bit, it opens up more. Aptly named Breakfast Stout, with all this coffee and unlike some other coffee stouts, the coffee seems to be the right blend in the recipe. Not a bitter burnt coffee flavor, but a nice java-lovers flavor.
Plenty of body to carry this much flavor without being to alcoholic. Overall, this beer deserves just about all the praise it gets.
