Pours thick and black with a bit of head. Strong coffee notes on nose, along with roasted malts. Thick, but not too thick mouthfeel, nice and slightly coating. Intense coffee taste with sugar and cream, what you'd expect with this type of beer. Drank it while eating chocolate chip and pecan pancakes with pistachio ice cream. It was a glorious moment in my life.

This was a great milk/lactose stout. Since it says "breakfast stout" I too decided to try it with some breakfast foods. I had this with a batch of pancakes. It paired very well as expected. This dark robust stout was very strong right from the start. I was immediately hit with an intense coffee flavor. It finished with a slightly sweet and creamy feel which was perfect. The taste lingers and seems to get better as the stout warms up a bit. I myself thought the complexity of the beer comes out as the beer's temperature went up. I would definitely drink this again.
