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.

This is a very tough beer to rate. The smell is phenomenal and the taste is good as well. Everything else is okay for me... The problem for me is I've had far superior Breakfast Stouts. I will say however beer is very drinkable great coffee taste with excellent balance... as they do with most of their beers... low alcohol should not be a turnoff for this beer as I'm sure that's intentional because they made it so damn drinkable

Pours a deep brown color with a smallish toasted khaki head. The head is a little loose and settles into a light ring. Overall a little light for the style.
Nice aroma of coffee grounds and woody bark. Simple, not much else.
The flavor is of fresh ground coffee, not super strong but flavorful. There is a lactose sweetness that goes well with the coffee flavor. A bark like earthiness and a hint of caramel round out the flavor profile.
The feel is light, almost watery, with prickly carbonation. Sweetish on the palate but not in a heavy sort of way. Not much bitterness from the roast. Drinks insanely easy. Very very light for the style.
This is a tough beer to review. For each category, it is either slightly above or below average. But if you look to see what this beer is meant to be, its awesome. A 3.5% breakfast stout that has good coffee flavor. You can easily drink this for breakfast and go about your day. Not very complex but good.

I out of cask at Breukelen Bier Merchants in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Basically looks similar to a Guinness. Black. It has a smokey scent to it. It has a very sweet taste mixed with an intense smokiness. There's an odd bubblegum taste intertwined in there, too. I think that I'd like a bit more if it was chilled, but interesting taste.
