Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.
A- jet black. Motor oil. Not an ounce of light gets through.
S- chocolate. Dark chocolate comes through so well and melds greatly with the malt. On the back end there is hints of coffee and roastiness but its mainly chocolate.
T- chocolate comes through up front and then turns into some coffee roastness that hits pretty hard after the chocolate. It ends with more dark chocolat.
M- thick and creamy. Barely any carbonation. Just the way i like it.
O- a very very delicious beer. The smell matches the taste perfectly and the balance between coffee malt and chocolate is amazing. Personally i prefer this to the breakfaat stout.

From a bottle into a pint glass. Had this one about a month. I wanted to wait until I could enjoy it for a while after the kids went to bed. Here goes
A: absolutely pitch black. A thin layer if dark brown head that sticks around for a while. Thin lace as the foam recedes.
S. An absolutely mouth watering combo of dark chocolate, malts, and raisins. I could literally smell this beer all day. I can't wait to get that first sip.
T: I had this beer at 59 degrees out of my beer cellar. The tast follows the smell exactly. The best I can say is Hershey's dark chocolate and an oatmeal raisin cookie all in one!
M: full flavor coats the mouth completely but still really easy drinking!
O: the only markdown I gave this beer was in appearance because I like I bit more head on my beer. Honestly after drinking it I feel guilty for even that small markdown! Bottom line...buy this beer!
