Poured from a 12 oz can,into a Funky Buddha snifter.Canned on 11/18/16.

Thick frothy dark khaki colored head with moderate retention and sticky lacing.Jet black colored body with no light showing through the glass.Light to medium carbonation.

The palate follows the nose with dark roasted coffee,earthy and toasted malts,and dark chocolate up front and in the middle,with some faint citrus and floral hops on the back end to balance it out.p

On the nose I get dark roasted coffee,dark chocolate,earthy and toasted malts,toffee,and caramel notes.Some floral and citrus hop notes balancing as well.

The mouth feel is medium heavy with a sticky texture and moderate amount of oxidation on the tongue.

This is a very nice stout.Not my favorite version of the style but a good contender.I would drink this again,and recommend.

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 massive silky tan head that stays with excellent retention before slowly subsiding to an eternal frothy layer atop and leaving lots of lacing patch and spot here and there.

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, oat, and vanilla, dark bread and licorice, yet some mild scent of earthy, leafty, spicy, 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 lively crisp and medium carbonation, quite smooth, 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
