This is an all around GREAT beer! If you like strong, hardy stouts, try this bad boy out! With a hint of coffee, the name suites it very well. I have to say, it has quite a kick, but even at over 8% abv, it goes down smooth. This is a great default beer. If I'm ever unsure of what I want, this is always my go-to.

Purchased from bottle on 11/9/16. Bottled 8/5/16 09:53:33.

L - Dark brown, translucent. Proper glass not readily available to determine the head color/level.
S - Coffee and chocolate prominent.
T - Chocolate flavor prominent on the palette initially, then the coffee flavor settles in if left to linger and absorb all the flavors of the beer. The aftertaste is slightly hoppy/bitter with prominent coffee notes.
F - Delightfully balanced. The carbonation is just there enough to remind you it's a stout, but is never overwhelming and attributes to the smoothness of this brew.
O - If I could have one of this stout versus all of the others that were tried before it, I would choose this every time. Looking forward to trying the Kentucky Breakfast Stout and Canadian Breakfast Stout when available, which are apparently even BETTER but only available every few years.
