Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 11-09-2002

Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!

Pours black with a medium tan four finger head.

Smell is light coffee, roasty, chocolate, right amount of sweetness.

Taste is chocolate, coffee, roasty, grainy, creamy. A lot like Founders Breakfast Stout, but more balanced.

Very well carbonated, bit of a chalky mouthfeel, but easy enough to drink. Cool that I got to try it.
