I believe I picked this up in 2009. 16.9fl oz.

Imperial pint glass

Pours beautifully. Pitch black with 2 inches of tan head. Very dense. The lacing is just another beautiful part of this beer.

Loads of roasted character, toffee and French vanilla in the nose.

The taste is just spectacular. Just a bit shy of full-bodied. Plenty of carbonation and it does a good deal to bring out the complexity of the breakfast stout. There is plenty of chewy notes from the oats and still tons of roasted, acrid bitterness to make this an imperial stout. Very little harshness or warming alcohol overall.

Some dark stone fruits linger on the tongue with a bite of bitterness.

Great imperial stout to say the least.

Just got a tweet that First Street just put this one on-tap. Um, yes, please!

Walked on down after work. Full nonic pint of this bad-boy. A nice finger width creamy beige head on top. Excellent retention. Leaves perfect sip rings clinging to the glass, reminding me of what was. Nice potent chocolate aroma, melds well with coffee grounds, vanilla extract, and a slight earthy scent. I can tell this one is going to be rich.

Creamy body. This is similar to a nitro-draft. Really mellow smooth mouthfeel. Good viscosity. Coffee flavors abound and really start this one off. I can see where the "Breakfast" comes from. This characteristic doesn't overpower though, as it fades into a milk chocolate sweetness with touches of vanilla and almond. Slight roasted aftertaste gives it a subtle smoky taste that I dig.

This is a really well-made beer, and I can totally see how it gets the marks that it does. I never felt like pulling the trigger on the slightly expensive bottle whenever I see it, but I'm glad I got it now.

Appearance - Very dark, almost black. Tan head. Poured like it was from a nitrogenated can.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, coffee, a touch of booze.

Taste - I'd describe it as a coffee with malted chocolate and a little bit of booze. At the first sip, I was anticipating a little kick or stronger booze flavor, but it's incredibly balanced and smooth. Lots of chocolate notes, but the coffee is prevalent and the dominant flavor here.

Mouthfeel - It has a "velvet" feel; very lush beer.

Overall - This is an outstanding stout; perfect winter companion.
