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.

2.05/5  rDev -42.6%

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.

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.

I don't think I have ever been so disappointing by a perfectly good beer. Where the collaborative stout has the Beer Geek recipe at its core, the addition of Anchorage yeast should give a unique taste. But it didn't.

Its dark appearance doesn't let on that anything unusual is up. The darkest of brown before becoming obvious black, the beer sheds a lathery foam head, made up of sand-stained hues. But lacking the exuberance of anything with Belgian-esque character, the ale only looks very nice.

Its roasty aromas capture the morning routine of coffee and burnt milk sugar very well. Peps of cocoa, scorched earth and a tangy grape seed character shines through its char, burnt nut and burnt ember quality.

Nearly smoky, the beer's campfire taste extends beyond all thing's burnt and introduces an acutely sharp taste of dark fruit skins and seeds. Along with its scorched coffee, cocoa and roasted walnut flavor, its over-cooked toffee flavor supports the roast reasonably well- just like in all other Beer Geek variations that I have ever had.

Despite the use of creamy oats, the beer's texture is dry and medium. Hinging on thinness because of its coffee-like body, the beer's carbonated lightness exposes the harsher side of taste with its high roast-derived astringency.

I was once again tricked into buying the Beer Geek Breakfast under the guise of it being something unique and interesting. Turns out its not all that interesting at all- only good, just like the rest of them.

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.
