I found this breakfast stout to have a very good smell. It definitely had the aroma of chocolate and coffee in it. The taste is even better. The chocolate is rich but not over powering with a medium coffee flavor. The after taste is sweet and not as bitter as you would expect from a a beer with coffee flavor. Overall I would say this stout is fantastic for anybody that really enjoys a full body stout and coffee.

Delicious hints of coffee, oat, chocolate, very rich full bodied creamy. On the first sip the chocolate and roasted coffee become very present followed by oats and smooth roasted malts on the backbone. Extremely smooth and easy drinking stout for 8% ABV, an all time favorite and go too in my book!
