Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #39 (Apr 2010):
Barley, wheat, oats, amaranth, quinoa, spelt and kamut with a dose of coffee. Sounds like a healthy breakfast to us.
Epic head retention, no doubt giving thanks to the grains. Nice Stout color, black. Aroma of iced dark-roasted coffee, charred wood, mild molasses, black currants and a faint whiff of alcohol. Smoothness drops the bomb; grains really come through for the mouthfeel in an exceptional way. Roasted grain character is a bit of controlled chaos; from charcoal to cocoa, fresh coffee to burnt sugar. Berry flavor within is dual play from the coffee and fruiti- ness of the yeast. Hops show up to the party; bitterness is there to balance with some citric herbal tone in the bitter, semi-dry finish.
Wow, what a way to take a Coffee Stout and turn it up a few notches.
