Poured into a snifter. Bottled 11/11/11.

I've had this beer many many times, but am only just now sitting down to review it.

Appearance: Pitch black pour, with a syrupy thick look, the head pushes downward into the beer, and is thick, slow to settle, and a dark brown. A fine layer of head is retained throughout, and an all around beautiful beer.

Smell: Rich coffee, hint of chocolate, and a robust smokiness make up a nose that you must smell for yourself to get the full effect. Words can't do it justice.

Taste: Big coffee flavors up front, followed by a nice chocolate, and some cocoa/coffee grounds combined in the finish. As the beer warms, the chocolate begins to pull through more, and all the while I'm thinking "why didn't I have this for breakfast this morning?"

Mouthfeel: Velvety smooth, very thick, rich, luscious mouthfeel. Truly a regal feel to the beer that is absolutely outstanding.

Overall: A superb beer that is worth going out of your way for. Probably my favorite seasonal release of all time. An excellent beer that will not disappoint. Although the Canadian Breakfast Stout is exceptional as well (and much more hyped up), if I had to choose between FBS and CBS to drink everyday for the rest of my life, I'd choose the traditional breakfast stout. This is a fantastic beer, my friends!
