look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Half inch thin mocha head on a dark brown body. Relatively good head retention, cap and collar left throughout. Spider lacing quite apparent.

S- Initially coffee notes but then come the sweet chocolate undertones.

T- Cocoa and java in the reverse order of the smell. First you're hit with chocolate and then a long lasting coffee bitterness as an aftertaste. Would guess in the 8 to 9% range. Tasty.

M- Smooth, medium-thick mouthfeel. Low, tiny-bubbled carbonation. Overall mouthfeel on Breakfast Stout is just great.

D/O- One of my first true craft beer loves. After over a thousand craft beers, this still is top tier for it's style. Thanks 4DAloveofSTOUT for this long time ago had but never review!

Poured this from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Poured a dark black with a little foamy head that stuck around for the long haul leaving lacing all the way down. Smell was Chocolate and coffee. Taste followed that nose. A little astringent but still Smooth. Very creamy and thick.
