Poured almost pitch black with a fine tan head that quickly receded. The aroma is dark malt and coffee. The flavor was very bland other than the coffee. Nice thick feel but overall disappointed with this one especially considering the price point.

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle and got a huge sudsy, rocky head that really slowed down my pour. That carbonation stayed around in the beer and affected the mouthfeel in my opinion. It didn't end up being as creamy as I would have expected from a 7.5 ABV oatmeal stout. Smell was nice espresso but somewhat restrained. Taste was soft bakers chocolate and coffee. Decent beer but not stellar.

L: Was pretty dark brown, closing in on a blackish tone. There was absolutely no head on this, which was a little disappointing.

S: Slight Espresso and some earthy notes

T: Coffee and espresso notes, some dark chocolate , a slight taste of dirt and a little flat.

F: Medium body, not too thin. Very low in carbonation.

O: Its an alright beer, nothing special to be honest. But my bottle may be a little older, so I would like to do another review with t a fresher bottle.

330ml bottle poured into a snifter.

Jet inky black in color, it tops with thin foamy tan head that stays for a while and dissipates to some bubble film atop and leaves some lacing patch and spot on the glass-side.

Really nice espresso and black coffee aroma, it also reminds me of cocoa powder, some chocolate, roasted, charred nut, some smoke and charcoal, some caramel and vanilla, dark bread and licorice, yet some mild scent of earthy, leafty, and citrusy hop.

The taste is purely about the coffee business that is reminiscent of good black coffee and espresso. It is as well with bold roasted, slight coffee sour, subtle chocolate, and slight cocoa. Dark bread is undertone together with oat, charred nut, and charcoal in order to let hop participated with its mild citrus, some bitterness and earthiness. The end is wrapped up and lingered by the overwhelming coffee flavor.

Medium to rather bold body with some crisp and medium carbonation, not much sticky, finish is dry.

This one is still a bit far from my favorite Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, however, it is good as it is and not too sweet by mainly focusing on the coffee character, good morning coffee.

L - Pitch black with a thin beige head

S - Coffee, chocolate, herbal hoppiness, a bit boozy, very promising smell

T - A lot of coffee, a perfect balance, roasted malts, cocoa powder, light hop presence in the taste. Oat is there no doubt.

M - Nice fine carbonation

O - A great beer, a perfect balance. I think this beer is underrated here. I'd love to have such a breakfast but you can definitely tell each part of this breakfast

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Brown/black hue.

Tan head; strong lace.

Citrus & roasted coffee nose-smells like a black IPA!

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Orange citrus meets black coffee bitterness; truly breakfast themed! Cascading, refreshing...a tasty treat.
