Pours an opaque very dark brown with dense creamy light brown head. A few thin rings down the glass. Smell: rich dark roast coffee, earthy, toffee, cocoa, mild plum-y fruit sweetness in back. Taste: unsweet chocolate, caramel, dark fruit note, then big roast with burnt edges. Fading into graininess, some tannin-y bitterness. Might be a little drier than the original, still nice.

Poured from bomber. Nice carbonation, pours black.
A- pours black with little to no head or lacing.
S- smells of coffee, bitter.
T- Bitter, nice coffee notes. Oak tanks provide little help here to the normal beer geek breakfast.
M- drinks lovely. Covers the mouth, not as thick as I was expecting.
O- I would drink it again but I would definitely buy the normal Mikkeller oatmeal stouts instead. Good but not well balanced enough to be great.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black with a 1/8" light brown head that dissipates to patches and a ring around the glass, leaving light lacing. Aroma is coffee forward with dark toasted malt and light cocoa. Flavor is toasted malt with moderate char, boiled coffee, hints of lactose. Finishes with light grassy hops, charred coffee and hops, long residual bitter aftertaste. Excellent creamy medium body I expect from oatmeal stouts and delivered nicely by this one. A great tasting coffee oatmal stout; I think the flavor is somewhat more intense than the Mikkeller brewed Beer Geek Breakfast, but the creamy body really seems to have a way of balancing and blending the flavors, which is true here. I found this had somewhat stronger flavor and a much better body than its breakfast cousin. Nice.

A: Pitch black body with a small quickly receding tan head. Spotty lacing.
S: Big coffee upfront, followed by milk chocolate and hints of vanilla. No oak to speak of. Lacking depth, but still smells great.
T: Nowhere near as potent as the nose. Roasty coffee takes the lead, with a hint of bitter bakers chocolate. Tannic and bitter oak notes on the finish make this reminiscent of over extracted coffee. Not bad, but a bit dissapointing following the aroma.
M: Medium bodied, with a drying and lingering astringency I'm assuming is due in part to the oak.
O: Definitely prefer the original, but this wasn't bad. Glad to have tried it.
