Bottled on date says 10/06/11. It's 10/22/11.
Poured bottle into Dupont ~12 oz. glass. Pitch black, finger of creamy dark tan head.
Coffee. Roasted coffee right up front. Chocolate coming through.
First sip is coffee, again. Slight chocolate bitter rises, with roasted barley holding strong while oaty, toffee breaks through. Finish is bitter oat though. Yummy oat all day! Vanilla starts coming into the mix as it warms.
Carbonation is high. Tingles well into middle of taste, but delightful, nevertheless. Thick as you would expect it to be upon first glance, but settles nicely. Thins nicely but lingers long, making me anxious for another sip.
Overall, WOW. This one never gets old. Finish the night with this one. Roasted (sweet) coffee, substantial balanced bitter against the roasted malty notes, with savory oat and toffee to boot! This beer beacons to be had with bacon, oatmeal, some sunny side up eggs, and a germ wheat pancake!!! BREAKFAST!
