Poured into a glass mug. Pours black as night with a dark brown head. The head dissipates rather quickly, leaving a cap of lace atop the beer. Some lacing is left on the side of the glass during consumption. There are big malt dark roasted malt aromas along with coffee and chocolate. It's mildly sweet and it comes across as roasty to the nose. The taste follows the nose. There are dark roasted barley malts, coffee, and chocolate as well as oats and dark fruits. The flavors are big, but also well balanced. The 8.3% ABV is well hidden in the taste. I can barely taste the alcohol. The body is full with light carbonation. It is smooth thanks to the oats. The drinkability is very high. Overall, this is an excellent beer and a fantastic example of an imperial stout. This is also appropriately named because I could see myself enjoying one of these with breakfast.

A- Dark black with a decent head.
S- A nice blend of chocolate and coffee beans. The smell dissipated rather quickly in my snifter, but agitating it brought it all right back.
T- Lives up to it's smell wonderfully, a rich coffee and chocolate flavor. Can't say I really pick up on the oatmeal as well as the former flavors, but it tastes amazing nonetheless.
M- Very smooth, non intrusive aftertaste. Minimal amount of bitterness that stays with you for a bit after you've finished.
O- Absolutely beautiful blend of chocolate and coffee, both in terms of smell and taste. One of the best beers I've had and my favorite stout to date.
