look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A very deep brown or black beer. It has a velvetty appearance while being poured. A vigorous pour produced about a fingers worth of mocha colored foamy head. The foam head is very dense looking. Good lacing is left when the head receeds. A gentle swirl produces copious amounts of foamy goodness.

Aroma is rich with malts and sutle hops maybe even anise. The coffee essence is hardly noticable in the nose even when the beer is swirled to help release the fine aroma that lay hidden.

My first sip, okay chug, produced nothing that the aroma might suggest instead you get hit with a big ol, bag of coffee beans.
Yes, your first taste is a wonderfull coffee taste, black coffee taste. Not overpowering just enought. Sweet milk chocolate follows. You maybe able to taste a bit of vanilla, it's very sutle.

Chinook and cascade hops are there, but they are well hidden and play only a minor part. Bittering.

This beer has a nice full body and smooth feel to it thanks to the oatmeal.
An intriging beer: you can hardly smell any coffee, but it's in your face when you drink up.
The taste starts sweet and ends in a bitter aftertaste.
A well made beer.

A: Near black, nice frothy head after the pour. Leaves spotty lacing around my stout glass.
S: Bit of chocolate, coffee, sweetness.
T: Sweetness up front, then balanced by coffee at the end. A little bit of chocolate notes throughout.
M: Slightly on the thick side. Love how the bitterness of the coffee lingers on the back of the tongue.
O: Pretty pleasant beer, although I would probably only have one in a session. Maybe slightly above middle of the road for this beer in its category.

Having a beer for breakfast?, This is the one. If you like coffee and a kick ass beer, this will suit you just fine. Medium head when poured and dissipates rather fast. Flavor is bold and finishes with just the right amount of somewhat bitter coffee flavor. Taste remains in mouth for quite awhile...but....so does coffee. High alcohol content but well balanced!
