Notes/Commercial Description:
It is a low alcohol, sweet and smooth stout. It is balanced with the addition of Kenyan coffee to the finished beer which gives it a nice roasted flavor. This beer is loaded with flaked oats and milk sugar that gives it that cream and coffee breakfast taste.

Pours out black with a decent nose of pungent coffee grinds.

Decent coffee flavor, smooth and easy drinker. The really light mouth feel is very noticeable right away. A bit watery at times and really just not as strong tasting as I would like it to be.

2013 On tap. At Rattle n Hum, NYC. For some reason this time the coffee was way out front. So much so that it could have been served in a Starbuck's cup. Grande of course.

2013 On nitro tap. At Rattle n Hum. On the dry side, almost gritty. Nice balance of flavors.

12/20/11 The Filling Station growler, NYC. At 3.5% ABV I had my doubts but this was very nice surprise. Brought home growler & as any good house guest all it left was pleasant memories. Flavorful but not obnoxious. Not too sweet...not too anything but notable nonetheless. Highly recommended as a session sipper.

Local store was having a special. It had a strong malt, coffee bean smell. It was very light almost watery with a slight hint of cream. Its very drinkable with its low alcohol content. If you take it for what it is then you'll be fine - if you are expecting it to compare to any of the big breakfast stouts you will be disappointed.
