Beer Geek Breakfast, not quite my breakfast today but still having it early! Pours pitch black with a big light brown head. Seems to have good retention with the head staying till almost the last drop, though leaves little lacing on the glass. The smell threw me off at first as I got a good scent of chocolate when I was expecting more of a coffee smell. The coffee however is there and is upfront with a nice roasted smell. The taste is similar, nice coffee taste with some chocolate in the background. Has a nice roasted taste. Has somewhat of a different coffee taste than other coffee beers I've had but I really like it, might be espresso I'm getting. Whatever the case it goes down smooth and fast, pretty good stuff. The ABV isn't huge by any means but at 7.5% I don't taste it making this one way more easier to drink. Overall this is one I've been wanting to try for a while and now am glad I did. I don't know how fresh this one was as I believe it's been on the shelf a while making me think a fresh one might have more of a coffee flavor (not that it really needs it or anything). I wish I could start my day off with this more often but as a review said earlier the price tag makes me rethink that. I'll have to pick this one up again once in a while when I have an extra ten bucks!
