4.61/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance is a very dark brown with a tiny bit of tan colored head.

Smell is dominated by chocolate, maybe a bit of roasted coffee in there as well.

Taste is bold, some chocolate and coffee flavor but also more bitterness than I'm used to in a beer like this. It all works well together, really tasty.

Mouthfeel is very thick; this is a heavy bodied beer but with a bit of carbonation that lightens it up. Not an easy drinking beer or anything, but easier than you would expect.

This bottle has been in my fridge for over a month as I polished off my stash of breakfast stout, really wish I had gotten to this sooner!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- Dark chocolate brown color, nearly black. Dark and dense, with a malty-mocha head that leaves big brown lacing.

S- Chocolate, coffe, dark roasty malts, and some alcohol.

T- Good dark chocolate bitterness, coffee, roasted malts.

M-Rich feel, fuller than many porters. Very good carbonation and the alcohol takes a back seat after it passes the nose.

O- It's flavor forward and tuned-up just enough so it doesn't come on too strong. A good 'un.
