750ml corked and caged brown bottle purchased from Jane's Beer Store in Mountain View, CA. Brought back to Sydney, Australia where I shared it with Sam and Chris.

Pours a deep black-brown colour, but with a surprisingly light body that sits fairly thin in the glass. Head is a fine ring of pale brown around the edge of the glass. Specks of lace form around the outside of the glass. Looks reasonable, but it's pretty timid for the style.

Nose is quite pleasant. Light malty roast, with a slight funk around the edges. Hint of something slightly vinous and a little salty in places. Roast is fairly subdued all things considered, and there's really not much hint of the barrel except for the wildness. It's reasonable though.

Taste is light and fairly empty for the large part—as though the wilder notes have taken out all the body, but not replaced it with funk or acidity. Instead, it leaves the roast feeling rather empty on the top with a high-cocoa chocolate character devoid of sweetness. Very dry finish. Feel is very light with just a linger of roast coating the back palate.

Overall, this is bitterly disappointing. Beer Geek Breakfast is good, Anchorage is excellent, but the combination of the two is way below what I expected. This should be a really wonderful beer—and it just really, really isn't.

750ml shared with friends, my 3rd time having this I believe. From 2-week old cellphone notes.

A - Pour is black and inky. Tan head is nothin' fast.

S - Mostly a coffee chocolate bomb. Pretty big sweetness. Er, oak?

T - Once again, big ol coffee/chocolate, very tasty though. Molasses, oats and light roastiness. Still on the sweeter side but the coffee flavor is great. Oak is pretty much non-existent.

M - Falls kinda short here, thin, lightly carbonated and boozy, sweetness gets cloying.

O - The coffee flavor was really nice, but overall comes off as too simple and a weaker rehash in the series. The "oak tanks" don't bring anything new to the table, mouthfeel is definitely a step down from the other variants.

Bottle opened on 4.6.14

A - Pours a dark brown with a large foamy dark tan head with red hilights, then fades slowly.

S - Lots of oatmeal and coffee, hard to pick up much else.

T - Smooth oatmeal and oak, then some bitter coffee.

D - Smooth heavier body with good carbonation.

O - Oatmeal is there, but coffee is to bitter for me.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: poured into a snifter to a deep black with a finger and a half of dense and slightly rocky light tan head that retains well with some lacing
S: smell is coffee and chocolate with a bit of roast malt
T: taste is a lot of coffee with some bitter dark chocolate and some dark roasted malt. the middle of the drink is still very coffee forward and the swallow brings even more coffee, chocolate and roast malt into the mix with a bit of wood and slight black malt astringnecy
M: the mouthfeel on this beer is thick and full with soft carbonation and a somewhat neutral finish that leans toward drying
O: An impressive beer for sure with great flavors that is pretty smooth. I'm happy that I picked this up and tried it. It's definitely a stout for coffee lovers as the coffee dominates.

Corked and caged 750mL bottle from Luekens Big Town Liquors (Dunedin, FL). 13.99. No bottling date. Served in a goblet.

Pours deep, near-black brown with two fingers of airy/ fluffy tan head. Decent retention and a bit of lace.

Upon my first few draws I catch aromas of coffee, rolled oats, roasted malt, caramel and a vague woodsy vanilla note. Then a severely off-putting garbage/ sewage note turns up and won't go away. I check the bottle and it's there too. Game stopper.

Initial flavors of bitter burnt black coffee, charred wood, blacked caramel, faint oats and dark fruit seeds. Astringently bitter and burnt with no sweet oak notes, smooth oats or yeast character to balance. Then once the horrendous aroma turns up, I couldn't get past it to continue.

Thin but still a mildly creamy texture with sharp carbonation. Bitter burnt coffee finish.

I was hoping that the oak tanks would make for an even creamier oatmeal stout with some welcome vanilla notes. This is nothing like I was wanting and an unfortunate departure from the truly solid base Beer Geek Breakfast. I'm not sure what happened after my initial sniffs but once the semi-fecal aroma turned up it was game over. I couldn't get past it and this ended up a sorely disappointing drain pour. Awful.
