Had a glass last night at the local bottle shop. My first time having it on tap and all I can say was delicious.
A – Super dark black with a nice 1 finger toffee colored head. Really good lacing and head for the entire drink.
S – Fresh roasted / brewed coffee but not over powering. Slight hints of chocolate in there too but the coffee was on top.
T – Light coffee and chocolate followed by roasted malt sweetness. The flavors are perfectly paired which makes this beer really easy to drink.
M – Super smooth and creamy, goes down so well. Carbonation was medium, no bite present form the carbonation. Medium bodied could drink this all day long.
O – This a one of my favorite go-to stouts. So rich and creamy smooth, ages well. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to try it.

This is very very close to a perfect beer. It pours very dark in a goblet. The aroma is enchanting, notes of chocolate, coffee, oats. The coffee and chocolate stood out to me most in taste, with each sip almost alternating the intensity of the two building block flavors. I enjoyed this one after a big dinner and it was the perfect dessert. As so many others have written, this truly tastes like a "breakfast" stout and seems to be almost made for the morning hours. It works great as a dessert too!

I really enjoy a good stout and was truly looking forward to trying this beer after reading all of the reviews and seeing the high ranking on BA. Finally had the opportunity to try it...
I'm not sure if the hype set my expectations too high or if I just had a weaker batch, but I found this stout to be quite plain. The rich, dark color and the head are great after pouring from bottle, as expected from a stout-but the rich, bold flavors I expect from a stout are just not there. There is a coffee, oatmeal flavor with very slight hints of chocolate, but none of these flavors are strong. The flavors are good and are balanced, just not much there.
Overall, this is probably a great introductory stout for those just starting with stouts or who don't usually like them as it is easy to drink.
