I really missed the "baby breakfast stout" Looks jet black,Smells like Sumatran coffee,chocolate, vanilla, fresh dough,hops. Taste is outstanding; again chocolate, coffee,vanilla ,anise,toffee? Feels super smooth. I am assuming that their is oats in the mash. Oats give it that super creamy luscious feel. Overall this still rocks!

This is one of the best Chocolate/Coffee stouts you can get, and it's created with oatmeal as well. Sumatra and Kona are the best coffees and the flavor is amazing. Well worth it, this stout is as good as many others priced much higher. Enjoy!

This beer is jet black. Awesome tan head. Great looks, great smell, better taste. Lots of chocolate smells and taste. Great coffe smell and taste without being bitter. This beer is excellent.

Pours a pitch black coloration with a medium, frothy head. Smells of roasted malts and coffee, with a strong dark chocolate aroma and just a hint of spiceyness, nutmeg, cinnamon, coming through as well, Taste follows the nose, with a very nice balance of roasted malt, coffee and dark, bitter chocolate. There's also a certain earthy note and mild spiceyness to this that is reminiscent of nutmeg. Finishes with a strong bitterness for the style. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation. Honestly, I think this is great, but not amazing. Very nice balance, but not that complex. Also, mouthfeel/body, while not bad, could be a little thicker. I definitely prefer Narwhal.
