I have done numerous blind taste testing with other Breakfast stouts and Pistols at Dawn ALWAYS is selected as the best. This could become Lonerider's must have beer and most sought after beer, like Heady Topper, etc.

Super nice mouthfeel. Sweet and malty, very little hops. Slight tan head and light carbonation deliver great flavor a over the tongue. Not too much coffee bitterness. Overall a beer I would drink again anytime.

A: Pours black with a finger of tan head that fades into a frothy ring with little lacing.

S: Roasted malts with robust, creamy coffee and semi-sweet chocolate. Simple, but nice.

T: Roasted malts here as well with dark chocolate and robust coffee. The finish is roasty with a bit of charred bitterness.

M: Medium-thick body with carbonation on the lower side of moderate, this beer is surprisingly drinkable.

O: A good beer, overall. Not terribly complex, but tasty and drinkable.

Note: 2014 Vintage from a 16 oz tall boy can

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and faint deep cola brown + garnet red highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy dark tan/mocha head that slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of roasted malts, rich fudge-like chocolate, and coffee beans. Very light notes of vanilla.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of roasted malts with a light amount of caramel + molasses sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of rich fudge-like chocolate and fresh coffee. Finally there is a light amount of vanilla and a light lingering bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Thick and creamy + oily.

O: A very nice, very enjoyable, and easy to drink "big" stout. Wonderful complexity/layers of flavors and aromas which only improve as the beer warms up. Definitely one to grab again and glad I found it this year since the bottle that was an Xmas gift for me last year was dropped in the driveway and broke.

Super impressed by this. By far the best thing i've had from Lonerider. Fantastic mouthfeel and melding of the cocoa, coffee, and dark malt flavors.
