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.

The beer is black with a foamy chocolate brown head that lasted a while. The beer smells a ton of coffee and roast with a hint of dark chocolate and the sweetness of dark fruits very light on the hops. The beer tastes. The taste is similar to the smell. Lots of roast and bitterness of coffee upfront and then a slight sweetness, still light on the hops. Dry finish, medium bodies, nice carbonation in the mouth feel.

L: Dark brown/black. Dark brown head, not much though
S: Floral, light coffee
T: Initial sweetness, about to be overpowering but it is not, reels back and the coffee comes in, quite balanced. Lacking a bit of an aftertaste but that is not so bad since the beer is very heavy already.
F: Crisp, not syrupy-sweet-thick. Not too much carbonation but crisp.

Very nice stout- more on the sweet side but not too much to make it bad

16,9 oz bottle that the other 351 countries in the world would call 500ML.

Black. Smells like chocolate, coffee, & cream. I bet my wife is going to love this.

Beer Geek Breakfast isn’t messing around. Taste more like coffee than any beer I’ve sampled, but without that nasty watery grounds taste of real coffee, since this one has some body. Moderate bitterness, vanilla creamer, fall nuts. Creamy & dry simultaneously. 250ML is about right for this non-coffee drinking boy.

Bit heavy-handed, even my coffee-addicted wife says she “can’t taste the beer”. Pretty good.

Appearance: Deep black in snifter at the Louisville Hop Cat.

Aroma: Dark fruit, coffee. Rich and heavy-duty already!

Taste: Very smooth coffee, with more dark fruit underneath. This one feels like a milk stout, it’s sooooo smooth going down. Sweet most of the way until a bitter smack at the end. Really a superb, top-tier brew here.

Smell of coffee Taste of malt, coffee, some chocolate, weak alcohol taste Overall for me is a smooth stout that doesn’t the sour/spicy aftertaste. Medium to thick body. I could drink this for breakfast that’s for sure. A good 4.0!
