16 oz can. Pours near pitch black with thick tan head, fades slowly to thin layer with lots of lace. Roasty aroma. Taste is chocolate n some smokiness, mild licorice in the end. Medium soft mouthfeel. Overall solid oatmeal stout.

16 oz. can poured into imperial pint glass. Pours a jet black, thick brown colored head. Smells of roasted malts, coffee. Taste is sweetness, dark roasted grains, coffee, bitter chocolate. Medium hop bitterness to help balance all the sweetness. This is a full bodied oatmeal stout, smooth. Overall, a very enjoyable full-bodied, roasty ale. Well done Southern Prohibition Brewing.

Pours out dark brown to black with ruby highlights and a tan head. Smells of roasted malt, toffee, and English hops. Tastes bready with roasted malts, dried fruits, herbal hops, and caramel. Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, and full. This is an excellent oatmeal stout. Very English in character.

Pours black with a thick kahki head with some staying power. Smells like dark fruit and coffee with a little bit of bitter baking chocolate. Taste is moastly the same but less fruit and more bittee chocolate. Chocolate and hops linger for a while on the finish. The feel is right where it should be for a relatively lower alcohol oatmeal stout, I always prefer them thicker but this is nice. I would have no problem drinking this beer again. Unremarkable but, for the style, very good.

SPB Hipster Breakfast has a thick, creamy head, a dark brown appearance, and some nice lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, roasted malt, cream, sugar, and brown bread. Taste is of those elements with some char bitterness, hop bitterness, earthiness, and sugary sweetness. Mouthfeel is fairly heavy and velvety, and SPB Hipster Breakfast finishes semi-dry and not at all alcohilic.

Part of the Cicada Series, we can only hope this beer will return when the weather turns cool again. Had from growler in Jan. 2014, and from pint cans from November 2014 through May 2015.

Very nice color, deep, dark, rich. Frothy nitro creamy looking head.
Smells like chocolate and coffee. Dark roasty malt flavor. Tasty.
Mouthfeel was slightly thin at the beginning, but the roastiness soon grab your tastebuds from front to back. Tasty again.
It's fantastic on both nitro and CO2 but much more creamy on nitro as expected.

Poured into a pint glass at Fondren Public, Jackson, MS

A: Dark brown with a rich, brown head that lingered. Curtain-y lacing.

S: Coffee hits the olfactory like a sledgehammer. Oh my, will I be sleeping tonight? Light malts pop in with a hint of oatmeal sweetness.

T: Yep, that's a breakfast brew. Smooth coffee slides in with a caramel malt sweetness that begs for more. A slight bitter finish, but I want more.

M: Medium to heavy with frothy carbonation.

O: My favorite so far from Southern Prohibition. And one of the coolest names for a beer, too. Sip slowly or glug it down. It's all good. And hip!
