A- Pours a dark black, with a very minimal tan head. Carbonation is light. Leaves some beautiful lacing on the glass. You can tell as it pours out that it is going to be a very chewy and viscous beer.

S- The smell was chocolaty and delicious but not very powerful. Coffee notes also come through.

T- The taste is absolutely delicious. Strong coffee and chocolate flavors are prominent. The sweetness is well balanced with hops. I don't like beers that are overly sweet, but this was not a problem with the breakfast stout. Alcohol is also well covered with combination of sweet flavors and hops.

M- This is a full bodied beer that has a heavy, creamy mouthfeel. Probably one of the more viscous stouts that I have ever had.

O- This is a great stout for anyone who likes the style and is not afraid of a flavorful, full bodied beer. I loved it and is something that I will have to pick up again.
