Poured from the bottle into my Terrapin 7th Anniversary pint glass.
A- Pours black with half a centimeter of deep mocha heard that dissipated relatively quickly leaving a nice skin of lacy head across the surface.
S- Great aroma full of roasted coffee, some bitter chocolate, and semi-sweet vanilla coming through.
T- The first flavor I get is the vanilla on the front of my palate, which quickly gives way to coffee. What I really like about this one is the smoothness of the coffee flavor; it's not so bitter as dominate completely, but it asserts itself enough to remind you that you're drinking a coffee stout (I am sure this has something to do with the quality of Jittery Joe's coffee as I have noticed this in other beers made with reputable coffee beans/sources.) In the finish, I get a nice nutty flavor, which I often find in oatmeal based stouts (either my palate confuses the two or they taste quite similar to me.)
M- Nice amount of carbonation followed by a great creamy mouthfeel.
D- Truly one of my favorite breakfast stouts. I will admit that I have a certain amount of nostalgia when it comes to this phenomenal beer, but I tried not to let it have an effect on my review. No booziness at all (granted it is on the low end for an "American Double/Imperial Stout." This is up there with Founders BS as one of my favorites.

Bottle shared by Curran. Thanks man!
Pours a thin looking watery black, with a small quarter inch head, and not much lacing.
Smells incredibly strongly of nutty roasted coffee, with roasted malt, and baker's chocolate.
This has one of the strongest coffee flavors in a stout that I've ever had, but it's also nicely integrated, as well. Creamy chocolate and vanilla flavor- slightly bitter chocolate chip flavor, with Hershey's syrup, a cookies and cream flavor, and a very small amount of hop bitterness.
This one is medium bodied, but I wish it was a little thicker. Low carbonation, creamy, very smooth mouthfeel.
A real classic that I'm glad I'm finally getting to try for the 1st time.
