500ml bottle batch 659, brewed at 13-07-11

Pours very dark brown, black in the glass with a tan head. A huge head infact. Good retention in my pint glass.

Smell: Some sweetness, I'd say dark fruits, some sort of smokiness, some roast and ofcourse some coffee. Not as much coffee as with the Founders Breakfast Stout though. But there is something else, I can understand other people describing it as syrup, vanilla and such.

A medium sweet beer, the coffee is rather weak compared to the Founders beer and there is some hop bitterness in this which is surprising. The aftertaste is coffee bitterness and typical stout flavours; roasted malts mainly. I also get the oats.

This is quite a pleasant oatmeal stout, this is no RIS or anything in my opinion. The Founders beer is more flavourful but this is easier to drink. It is nicely balanced and I would prefer this over a beer such as Samuel Smith's Oatmeal stout.

The mouthfeel is nice but I expected this to be thicker. It has a medium body with medium-low carbonation.

Overal this beer is a nice oatmeal stout. The coffee and the American hops give it a very nice balanced flavour. But this is not as intense or interesting as Founders Breakfast Stout. This beer is easier to drink but given the ABV this is not really a session beer. But all in all this is a nice stout but too expensive unfortunatly.

This might be the best coffee beer I have had to date. It really has a great espresso like flavor, a great mouthfeel, its look great and smells like a hearty earthy stout should. If it were not so expensive this would be my standby for the genre, but Founders does almost the same but for half the price. I will keep my eyes out for the Brunch Weasel and Bacon Breakfast. I bet they take this great idea even further.

A - This beer looks very promising. Like a black motor oil with a decent brown head that grows after being pored.

S - A wet wood and peat smell.

T - A dry beer with strong peat and woody tones along with smoked malts and some dark chocolate hints in the back as well.

M - Surprisingly this beer is way more liquid that it looked at first sight. The body is full and the low to medium carbonation fits the taste. After swallowing the massive bitterness kicks in.

O - A decent stout, but it is just not my style. I really think it's to dry and has not enough flavors to go on.

A: Pours black with a very small mocha head that goes straight to the sides. No lacing.

S: Coffee, unsweetened cocoa, and burnt malts.

T: Of course coffee and burnt roasted malts. Has a sort of nuttiness with the oats, as well as a an astringent quality. Good, but nothing super complex here.

M: Medium/ full body with medium to high carbonation that ends dry. Fits well, but I wouldn't mind a little less carbonation.

O: Looking for a coffee stout? Don't hesitate with this.
