Thanks to Kenpo23 for this very, very generous extra!

Poured with the father in law between two 16oz snifters.

Black, black and more black. This is one darkest, most viscous beers to date. Dark as night with a mocha head. Head rises with large, slowly decreasing bubbles. The last remnants leave a black trail through the head, giving you the chance to get a bit artistic. I made a smiley face. Seemed fitting. Retention is modest, with faint lacing.

For as being as aged as this one is (at least 6 months) the coffee aroma is so dang dominating. Very sweet, near mocha/fudge like in coffee/chocolate melding. A booze note rises slowly, but is well played, not being overly dominant nor a real nuisance. This bad boy came to play. As it warms, cherry and dark fruit notes come out, though muted. Not as complex as wanted, but I feel this one is more about the Kopi Luwak than anything. A beer that compliments the coffee...interesting.

For a "breakfast" beer, this would be a very hearty breakfast indeed. Coffee notes dominate again, coming off as a nutty, roasted, and surprisingly mild bitter tinge in the fore-palate. Like many Bfast stouts, I was expecting a smooth, non complex drinkable beer that you could slam like a stack of flapjacks. Not this one. You go from the coffee notes, to a very nicely played chocolate mid-body, somewhat like hershey bar, into a very mellowed and drawn out finish. Nutty notes come back into play in the finish, with small bit of earthy and floral hops, though very mellow.

Mouthfeel is super creamy, super sticky and takes a bit to warm up for another go. Carbonation is rather mild, with a very drawn out finish. Boozey finish, but heck, at 10.9%, what do you expect? Keep this to one, and at 500ml (which is a perfect size for a beer of such magnitude) you won't be trashed by the finish.

Excellent, absolutely worth the price tag.

I had the "Weasel" for awhile and finally opened it tonight.Poured into a imperial nonic a jet black with not a trace of light showing thru,a mocha colored pillowey two finger head atop.an awesome mix of deep coffee roast and bitter chocolate in the nose,a hint of vanilla and roasted nut as well,just a great mix.Rich flavors and obviously highly roasted,bittersweet chocolate and French roast coffee dominate with a tinge of dar fruit and vanilla,a slightly earthy earthy finish rounds the beer out very well.Everything I thought it would be,just a great double stout from a killer brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

A: Thick, jet black liquid. One fingered brownish airy head that dissipates quickly. Basically no lacings.

S: Strong coffee aromas mostly resembling hard-roasted coffee beans, but also powerful espresso. Plenty of dark chocolate. Roasted, almost burnt malts. Some charred wood and tannins. A very dense and powerful smell.

T: The taste is full of rich espresso flavors. A wonderful taste of freshly brewed coffee and freshly grounded coffee beans. Notes of dark chocolate tries to balance the powerful coffee flavors, but don't really succeed. A faint but prominent taste of vanilla. Hard-roasted malts mix with wood and coal. Perhaps some fruity notes, but they are very faint. The finish is quite bitter actually with hints of tannins, hop aromas, some vanilla sugar and lingering coffee notes.

M: Very full bodied and very viscous - like old engine oil. Very restrained carbonation. Feels fantastic in the mouth.

D: A great coffee stout. Not very balanced though, as the powerful coffee flavors dominate. Still fairly complex. Highly recommended.

A- Inky black with a frothy medium-brown head.

S- Rich burnt coffee beans, light vanilla and chocolate,ash, and a whiff of alcohol and hops.

T- Amazing coffee flavors, smoke, chocolate and cookie, noticable hoppy finish adding depth.

M- Full bodied with soft, creamy carbonation with a slightly astringent feel in the finish.

D- This(with a few others) takes coffee(beer) to new levels. More integrated than geek breakfast.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: A thin head but a thick beer, completely black pour.

S: A very strong coffee aroma laced with oatmeal, a very thick smell that completely fills the nostrils.

T: A solid imperial stout, very front heavy with the coffee with an oatmeal and chocolate afterthought.

MF/D: Thick feel, smooth on the palate, would try again, though certainly not my favorite imperial stout. perfect for sharing (thanks hu5om) from the pint bottle.

Deep dark black pour with a 1/2" of creamy tan head that quickly falls. Spotty lacing. Aromas of robust dark malts along with some smokiness. Oatmeal is there along with big coffee and some chocolate as well. The aroma is somewhat earthy.

First sip brings sweet rich dark malts upfront with oatmeal smoothness in tow. Acrid coffee moves in with earthy undertones. Chocolate flavors are present. Flows down with a kick of alcohol heat and lingering roasted coffee flavors. Somewhat smoky as well. Never thought I'd be drinking a coffee beer made from civet cat droppings, but it's pretty darn tasty!

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with mellow carbonation. Oats add nice body and makes it go down smooth. It does have a bit of an ABV kick to it. Glad I got to try it, but it's a little bit too expensive for a repeat purchase.

A - Pours a thick, opaque black with a finger of brown head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving a trail of lacing behind.

S - Up front smell is intense deep coffee, accompanied by roasted malts, CHOCOLATE, and slight aromas of fruit.

T - Like the aroma, coffee completely dominates, which, as a coffee lover, I support. Wonderful flavor; some roasted, almost burnt malts, then comes some chocolate notes.

M - nice medium/heavy mouthfeel. This completely coats the palate in a wonderful way.

D - Some apparent abv drops drinkability a little, but this is fantastic for someone who loves both beer and coffee.

16.9oz bottle. Pours an opaque black with a creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet malts and oatmeal with some chocolate, black licorice and coffee and a little dark fruit and alcohol.

The flavor is sweet sugary lactic chocolate with some coffee. It has a big sharp roasted bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery.

Overall, very nice. I recall thinking the beer geek breakfast was a little better balanced and more enjoyable.

Opaque black in color with a dark tan head that stayed for about a minute and had a tan collar until I finished the beer. Aroma is heavily roasted, nice sweet coffee and a touch of vanilla. I ended up leaving this beer in the snifter for about 20 minutes before I started drinking it, and I'm very glad I did. Taste was considerably better once it approached proper temperature. Sweetness of the coffee shines in this brew. Also leathery, deep roasted malt, and an earthiness that I associate with some kind of wood (maybe Pine?). Oats really make the mouthfeel nice and silky.
