look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Hair of the Dog tulip. 2012 vintage, so about 9 mos old at this point. Thanks to Nuwanda for the extra.

A - Pitch black. Mocha head leaves decent lacing.

S - Brownies, faint coffee, cream.

T - Semi-sweet chocolate, coffee. Tastes like an iced cafe mocha. Delicious.

M - Creamy and full. Carbonation is on the medium/low side.

O - I remember a lot more coffee from the fresh version, but I actually like it better at this stage. Much more balanced with the chocolate.

A beer and coffee drinkers heaven on earth! I really have never tasted anything as good as this beer. Made with Jittery Joes coffee, very thick and black in color. Smells like a very rich and fresh brewed coffee. The name justifies the taste almost perfectly, if people drank alcohol for breakfast, this would probably be a popular choice. Mouth feel is nice, bursting with coffee flavor. This beer has won several awards, including best recipe, and rightfully so! I can't imagine anyone making a better coffee stout (compare to Thirsty Dog's Russian Imperial stout.).

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4

Poured aggressively into an 18oz snifter.

Pours a dark dark brown with a 3 finger chocolate colored head. Lacing follows all the way down the glass.

Smell is of bitter coffee, chocolate chip cookies, some char, and sweet malts.

Taste mirrors the nose. Bitter roast coffee. Some dark chocolate and dark fruits.

Mouthfeel is huge. Thick and chewy.

Overall this is a good beer. Something I personally have to be in the mood for, though.
