Enjoyed as part of a Founders tap takeover at Bier Station in Kansas City. Poured into a small, bulbous tulip-style glass.
Appearance - Dark, opaque body that's brown on the verge of pitch black. Head is thin and toffee colored with moderate to light lacing.
Smell - Straight up roasted coffee beans, with some semisweet chocolate and even elements of the oatmeal. Second and third whiffs reveal that wonderful fresh-ground espresso smell. Aroma certainly seems to live up to the massive hype of this beer and has me quite excited to soak my taste buds with it.
Taste - The coffee and oats are now front of stage, with caramelized bitterness and cocoa nibs coming through on the finish balanced with the reappearance of the espresso.
Mouthfeel - Decadent and rich with moderate to low carbonation and a viscous, lingering taste long after the liquid has passed to my stomach.
Overall a beer that deserves every bit of the praise I regularly see for it. Not just a part of your recommended daily breakfast, but the whole dang meal in a bottle. The name works on so many levels--the coffee, the oats, and the fact that one glass is plenty.
Serving type: on-tap
