12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Opaque with a mocha head than quickly dissolves to pencil. Small head splotches stick to the side of the glass.
S: Bold coffee, oats, malt, syrup, and boozy bourbon come through on the nose. The scent is so strong you can smell a few feet away from the glass.
T: Astringent coffee, anise, pepper, maybe even some smoked meat, rounded out by maple, cinnamon, and oatmeal flavor imparted by the malt. Coffee bitterness sticks around but is tempered by that sweet and smooth flavor of the oats.
M: Carbonation is alive and adds a nice lightness to otherwise heavy bodied beer. Great creamy texture and the warming sensation on the throat from the booze is a great touch.
O: The only breakfast staple missing from this epic stout are eggs. It's the breakfast of champions - coffee, oats / cereal, smoked meat, and even a splash of booze. Too have all these flavors together is an accomplishment alone, but to then have a splash of carbonation in every sip and that smooth, silky mouthfeel is another. It's made a believer out of me.
