A: midnight black. Caramel colored head. Lingers for a long while. 4.25

S: smells strong of milk chocolate. 3.75

T: hints of chocolate, coffee. 3.75

M: leaves a nice taste. Pretty standard for a stout. A lasting feel of milk. Not as thick as I expected it to be, though. 3.75

O: not as good as the imperial stout, but better than the backwoods. I got all three in one go, and tried them all on different nights. I will be seeking out more imperial stout. The breakfast stout isn't something I will look for, although it would be a great standard if it was available in California. 3.75

A beer that technically isn't as good as the reserve version (KBS) but I like it even more considering it isn't as much of a hassle to get. The appearance was pitch black with a nice coffee head that stuck around. The smell was heavy with hints of toast, and a lot of coffee. The taste was a velvet smooth mixture of heavy flavors like coffee and chocolate making for a very nice experience. A solid beer to drink right now, or to let age for a little while to mature it's flavors. Whole-heartedly recommend.
