On draft at the Publick House.

Big cocoa colored head, black body.

Fresh coffee aroma, chocolate, and dark malt balancing well with a piney resinous hop aroma.

Lots of coffee and a strong piney, grassy hop flavor. Malty with moderate sweetness and dark chocolate. Not that thick which makes this pretty easy to drink. Just the right amount of bitterness and doesn't clash with the roasty flavor of the beer making it astringent. It drinks like a black IPA. Highly recommended.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque in the glass with a thin head dissipating to light patches and a thin ring around the glass, slight lacing. Aroma of sweet dark toasted malt, light coffee, hints of chocolate and mint. Flavor folllows aroma, with toasted malt, rich quality coffee, cocoa, milk chocolate, light grassy hops, very nicely integrated. Medium body with light creaminess. An excellent, very well balanced coffee stout with a rich, creamy oatmeal stout body supplemented with good quality coffee and cocoa flavors. Smooth and very tasty.

11.2oz bottle poured into snifter.

A: Deep-space opaque black that literally devours all traces of light. Even with holding my iPhone flashlight directly up to it, no traces of light shine through. This beer is absolutely ominous. A two finger dark khaki head starts out wonderful and creamy, but eventually fades down to a little cap that retains nicely. Respectable tribal patterns of lacing left down the glass.

S: Smell is dominated by roasted malts and dark roast coffee. Lots of pure cocoa and dark chocolate meshes nicely with the roasted character. I'm not detecting much of the hops... or any at all, really... That's quite okay by me, though.

T: Lots of pure, unsweetened cocoa upfront that melds perfectly with a gourmet dark roast coffee profile. These flavors remain consistent throughout, until the finish when some piney hops peak their head through ever so delicately until they're squelched by the black coffee flavors in the aftertaste.

M: Medium body with a subdued carbonation and wonderfully creamy texture. I was hoping for a bit more of a full-bodied brew, but there's nothing to complain about here. The ABV is completely masked and this is a wonderfully drinkable stout.

O: I've been losing interest in stouts, admitted, so I decided to pick this one up on a whim to give it a whirl. This brew has successfully reminded me of why I loved stouts in the first place. Lots of roasted coffee flavors that are perfectly balanced with some dark chocolate notes and a delicate hint of hops. This brew definitely satisfied and makes for a perfect treat in the early afternoon or late at night.

,this is good beer but one that I've never really had on my own, mikkel hop breakfast is something I've always wanted to try but at the same time its rosti its hot the intended peppers shine through. Nice hot peppery stout. Aftertaste is peppery, spicy, roasted, red green and yellow peppers,Habanero, awesome.
