No lacing. Notes of coffee, vanilla, and some malts. It has some carbonation to it. It has a well-blended taste, but the body is thin.

I would suggest giving it a try.

Hey black color,below average carbonation with a just above average body. Aroma is roasted malt, roasted coffee beans, and milk chocolate. Taste is very similar, a slight sweetness followed by a small amount of a bitter finish

Dark, smells and taste of roasted coffee and chocolate. Very enjoyable for a non-beer-connoisseur.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a black color with a one finger off whitefoamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Light lacing stuck in rings around my glass. The smell had a huge combination of roasty coffee beans to big milk and dark chocolate goodness. The taste was basically the same smooth sweet roasty coffee to chocolate. Sticky sweet roasty aftertaste leads to a sticky sweet chocolate finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping to sessionable quality about it. Smooth sticky roasty sweetness clings to my tongue. Overall, I say this was a wonderful breakfast stout that I would have again.

12oz bottle poured into an East End Brewing snifter:

Look: Pours a nice dark black color with about an inch of a tan head! Some lacing is present with some of that being retained!

Smell: Awesome bitter coffee notes on the nose along with some roasted malts! Love the aroma on this brew!

Taste: Bitter coffee, some chocolate, roasty malts, and maybe a hint of like some smokiness!

Feel: Medium bodied. Wish this beer was slightly thicker.

Overall: Very solid breakfast stout from Jason Lavery and crew! This beer is even more phenomenal when on tap. I was glad some of this showed up in Pittsburgh and I was able to grab 12 of these. I will continue picking this one up when available and I suggest you do to!

Draft at Blue Moon in York, PA. Pours an opaque black with a modest tane head. Inital impression is roast coffee, burnt toast, and a touch of milk chocolate. Medium mouthfeel (a little light for a stout); low carbonation. Finish is somewhat sweet and has a hint of vanilla. Not bad but definitely not legendary.

Smells faint and tinny but the flavor is great. Really chocolatey.

I purchased this bottle at Grain & Verse poured chilled into a snifter.

The color is black with opaque clarity and light tan head with very thin off white head with tight bead and lace that collects in waves on the glass. the smell is roast with mild cocoa and dark toast in the malt smell with a mild toffee-like odor. The feel has dark roast coffee dry and bitter texture balanced by malt sweetness with a roast throughout and moderate carbonation with mild spice texture and alcohol warmth in the mostly dry finish.

The taste is very good with coffee prominent in the flavor with a slight sweet chocolate malt flavor and slight toffee element with dark cococa quality coming forward with slight char in the coffee with black malt taste and gentle creamy flavor of coffee and dark toast in the semi-dry finish. Overall I found this to be a very good stout - solid with nice body yet still drinkable at 7%

Picked this up a while ago at the House of 1,000 beers. Pours a great pitch black color with a 1/2 inch of opaque colored head and great lacing smell is very mild milk sugars and rounded coffee bean goodness. Taste is exceptional cold pressed coffee, bitter melted chocolates, and a touch of milk sugar sweetness. In a way the clocked back 7% makes this beer very easy to sip on I would easily finish a six pack.

Overall this coffee stout can go up against the greats like Planet Bean Coffee Stout and FBS.
