Holy sour infected coffee stout (in a good way)
18 months old bomber into a German Stein

L: Opens with a shotgun blast of the cork leaving a dent in the ceiling - we have a gusher! A quick pour into a 1/2 liter stein leaves 99% foam. Just enough of a pour to stop the bottle from staining the carpet - this beer is not behaving badly
S: This is supposed to be a clean beer, but it has obviously picked up something along the way. Wet oak, raisins, red wine and coffee - wow!
T: A nice tartness bordering on sour, no sweetness, oxidized coffee on the back end.
F: Obviously over carbonated, a bit slick, very thin
O: Clearly infected, but not necessarily in a bad way. BreAKfest failed to make a strong impression while fresh, the beer in front on me tonight is one I won't soon forget. A coffee sour stout. Unique and worth revisiting but not for the intended reasons. It comes together only if you have an open mind.

Brought back from Anchorage and cellared for a year, served at cellar temp in a snifter. Appearance is black, and pours a big, foamy head.
Smell is iced coffee and oak.
Taste is chocolaty, a decent punch of coffee, modest acidity, and fairly oaky, cherries and a little coconut.
Mouthfeel is soft, light and slippery. The oatmeal really shines.
Drinkability is pretty good. The body really helps, and the taste is pretty good, although it had a little to much oak I think.

Poured 750ml bottle at fridge temp into a dogfish head snifter.
A - Pours a dark,dark brown slightly black but lets a tinge of brown light through. looks much lighter compared to regular beer geek breakfast.

S - Very sharp & bitter roasted coffee. slight oatmeal grain smell. faint dark chocolate. the oak is present but not overwhelming.

T - raw, burnt roasted espresso beans dominates the front of the pallet. like green roasted coffee beans. oatmeal sweetness in the middle of the mouth briefly cuts the bitter coffee. the back end gives way to a bakers chocolate taste that reflects the bitter coffee..but stands out.

M - surprisingly thin. regular beer geek breakfast stout is much thicker than this. although i still can get some oatmeal smoothness and creaminess..but still underwehlmingly thin. this does not work in favor of the beer. but does not surprise me given the abv%.

O - This collaboration special edition does not wow me very much. the oak is present and the coffee over powers the pallet. what dissapointed me was the super thin mouth feel. does not reflect regular BGB. other than the slightly similar taste of coffee and oatmeal. also at 15 bucks a bomber.. for the abv and mouthfeel. just does not seem to add up. i like the concept. but the execution seems half hearted to me. regular BGB is alot better IMHO. I don't think i'll be buying this again. just too expensive. and the beer does not meet expectations.
Cheers!
