I love beer for breakfast so this is a beer after my own heart. Enjoyed at Coda in the south end in Boston.
Looks perfect pitch black with a chocolate milk colored head. Great lacing on the glass.
Not an abundance of scent for me. Accrid like most porters ( i know this is a stout).
Taste was less like coffee and more like coffee grounds. A little more harsh. Some sweetness settles on the tongue in the aftertaste.
Smooth beer. I could drink a dozen for breakfast. this is a good time. But i was expecting more coffee taste, perhaps because I had just had some great coffee porters in HI.
I will buy again

On principle, I am hesitant to rate a beer as perfect. This is the tastiest stout I have ever had. Is it the best? I am not sure, and the only reason I'm not sure is that there are still other beers out there in the world. It pours heavy, no head and minimal lacing, into a tulip glass (next time I'll use a snifter). It tastes sweet, and bitter, and chocolatey - I sense coffee, but on my palate the chocolate is more present - and heavy. Like I really could have it for breakfast. And by God the next time I don't have to work and my kid is already at daycare, I will have one for breakfast, and by then maybe I'll decide it truly is the best stout ever.
