Pours out inky black and viscous with a thick dark chocolate brown head. The head melts aways quickly but still leaves some nice lacing on the glass. The aroma is rich, deep roasted malts hints of coffee, toffee, and oat. The taste is delicious, with all the aroma notes present and mixing together with the nice addition of the hops to add a pleasant twist on the style. The body is slick and there is a little bite on the finish. A great big stout.

Aroma- big roasty malt and coffee, some bittersweet chocolate and a hint of smoke.

Taste- roast from the malts and a hint of coffee. Surprisingly a taste of alcohol that's kind of weird. There's an off taste in this beer for some reason.

Mouthfeel- I was expecting a thick and rich stout but unfortunately falls flat. Its to watery for my taste and it leaves an ackward film on my tounge.

Overall- I'm very disappointed with this one especially $7.99 for an 11.2 oz bottle. Not for me.

11.2oz bottle enjoyed from a snifter.

A unique take on the venerable oatmeal stout with coffee. Beer Geek Breakfast pours a near-black shade of brown and has a nice khaki head. The dominant aroma is bitter, almost acrid pine. There are some faint notes of bitter chocolate and charred coffee beans, but the bitter pine is overwhelming. The flavor is also quite bitter, but an enjoyable bitter much like cold-pressed coffee made with French roast beans. Even so, the flavor profile is well into charred/burnt, rather than roasty, territory. There's also some sweetness here from the chocolate malts, and a strong spike of piney hops. Mouthfeel is on the light-to-medium side; each sip coats the palate and leaves a dry, resiny film on the tongue.

This is a well made beer, but one that I just didn't care for. I love intense bitterness in IPAs and DIPAs, but I found that level of bitterness to be off-putting in a stout. Great roasted/charred/burnt coffee flavor, and if you like Central Waters 16 or maybe even BA Old Raspy you'll probably like this one a lot.
