This stuff is good. Ordered it at Mikkeller Bar in San Francisco. Readily available, obviously.

A - Black, simple tan head. Thick but leaves out some of the sticky features of other stouts.

S - Blackest of coffees. Like waking up in the morning and someone had brewed fresh coffee. No creamer mixed into this one. Hops are easily present. This smells like fresh coffee while camping in a forest thick with pine trees. Just such a fantastic smell. Spring camping and Sunday mornings are the first things that come to mind.

T - There is the black coffee again. It's good. Especially if you enjoy coffee. No vanilla or chocolate that you get with other stouts. The hops come full force on this one. Reminded me of a Double IPA in a weird way. I see why it is called Hop Breakfast. I give it props for matching the name.

M - Simple feel. Fresh and doesn't feel like processed beverages. Not too sticky, but not super thin.

O - If you really want that hoppy stout with a strong coffee flavor, get this; don't think twice, get it. If you prefer your stouts smooth with some vanilla, chocolate, and spice, well this is still worth a try. Great brew from a great brewer.

500 ml bottle into snifter; no bottle dating, but was released recently. Pours pitch black color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, grapefruit, orange zest, pine, floral, light char, and floral/roasted earthiness. Awesome aromas with great balance and complexity of roasted malt, coffee, and hop notes; with big strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, grapefruit, orange zest, pine, floral, light char, and floral/roasted earthiness. Moderate amount of roasted/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, citrus, pine, light char, and floral/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome balance and complexity of roasted malt, coffee, and hop flavors; with a great hop/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic hoppy coffee stout. All around great balance and complexity of roasted malt, coffee, and hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering
