Thanks to Crabbicuss for sending me this in a trade. Poured from a bottle to a Dogfish snifter. Dark pour with a mocha head. Strong coffee scent. Nice lacing on the glass. Nice stout with a strong coffee presence. Wish this was something I could get on the reg here in Houston.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into Newport Storm snifter. Thanks to BeerBuddy2122 for this one.

A - Black coffee dark with a finger of mocha head. Beautiful looking beer.

S - Coffee, chocolate, oats, and dark malt. Really, this one is mostly coffee. Smells like a french press.

T - Incredible. Lots of coffee in this one. It doesn't just taste coffee flavored, this tastes like freshly brewed coffee. After the coffee there are notes of chocolate and booziness, but this one is all about the coffee.

M - Thick and oily. Not as creamy or heavy as I was expecting but nothing to complain about.

Wow! This one is going to become a new favorite. This is one of the best stouts I've had and every bit as good as Breakfast Stout (though quite different). This one excels among a lot of strong competition.

Got this in a trade from ThinkNStout, thanks again my friend.

Poured from a bottle into a cigar city snifter.

A - Pours pitch black, poured chilled, a two inch head of foam sits on top and dissipates super slowly, leaving a quarter inch ring on top.

S - Smells phenomenal. I know the turtle on the front is baking a batch of cookies, so maybe its the power of suggestion, but I really do get chocolate cookies and coffee. Definitely tons of chocolate and coffee, but there are some malty notes that kind of complete the idea. Really a great smelling beer.

T - This one hits the nail on the head for me. Coffee and chocolate share the forefront, Chocolate is kind of a blend between sweet and bitter chocolates and the coffee is not overbearing but is prominent. Just the right amount of hops bittering the edges of the palate. Aftertaste is sweet malty goodness. Fantastic.

M - Cant say a bad thing about it. Low carb, medium to thick. Great.

O - I just really love this beer. Find it, buy it, drink it. Thats all.

This is a great example of a breakfast stout, and only a few that you could compare it to. It pours a nice thick black with a nice tan head that leaves nice lacing down the side of my glass. The nose gives you a hefty amount of dark roasted coffee with a little hint of sweetness. It follows through with each sip and the added bonus of some bittersweet chocolate notes with a hint of warming alcohol. The coffee lingers nicely after you swallow this full bodied stout. Definitely worth trying if you like coffee, but I do miss the original name..
