3.88/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Cascades very dark reddish brown to give birth to the nearly black opaque body crowned by thick deep-tan bed with great retention and stickage to the walls.

Dominant roasted grain character combines with the sweet aroma to render coffee-with-cream and chocolate impression. There's pruney dark fruit and leather while shy smokiness remains deeply buried under the base beer qualities.

Aroma transfers to the taste only this time the well integrated sooty flavor of smoked malts
steps forward enhancing the lightly burnt grain having coffee-ish charater, the later partially originates from actual coffee beans added. Overall flavor is not as sweet as the nose suggests and lacks creamy smoothness of the aroma. Herbal hop bitterness balances the malt and leads to a dry finish.

Medium-full bodied seems lighter due to moderate carbonation and not as slick as Oatmeal Stout is ought to be. Dark sludge accumulated on the bottom prevents me to finish the bottle.

Overall, a subtly smoked oatmeal stout with pronounced roasted grain qualities (500 ml, BB 03-11-2013, into tulip).

3.8/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

My bottle had a label titled "Raunch Geek Breakfast", so it took me a while to find due to the alias.

a. Dark, Dark brown into black. Poured into a tulip glass - no head - some trace foam lying on top. Cannot be sure of the age of the beer - bottle had no markings. Reading other reviews of 2 finger dark foam heads makes me wonder if this was on the shelf a while.

s. I had coffee, smoke, and bacon - some acidic high note. More and more enjoyable as time went on.

t. The first sip was all smoke flavor - BIG smoke- coffee was layered in as time went on and the smoke was accepted in the pallet. Coffee lingers on the finish. Nice mix.

m. Very good. A bit heavy on the alcohol for a 7.5.

o. Very good beer. I am not a big smoked beer fan out side of Smoke and Dagger from Jack's Abby, which is a mild smoked flavor comparatively.
