Tap at Arbor Ales, Bristol - Pours jet black with a small tanned head. Medium carbonation.Nice lacing. Aroma - roasted coffee and malt notes. Taste - sweet, smooth, coffee, light malts, light bitter finish. Lovely forward coffee stout.

Bottled and possibly bottle conditioned
A lot of thought has gone into this beer - we’ve been working on the recipe for well over a year! So, it started out as an Imperial Stout. How about a few oats? How about a hell of a lot of oats?! Some smoked malt maybe - just a little. All good so far. A few specialty German grains should round off the mash quite nicely. Then onto the boil. With our very own coffee roaster here in Bristol, it seemed a shame not to use them. We played around with a few samples from Brian Wogan Coffee and finally settled on some freshly roasted Brazilian Santos beans. Awesome coffee! Just needed something a bit chocolaty to finish it off. How about some chocolate? How about some organic raw cacao nibs?! Job done. Just a long slow fermenation and conditioning period and the result is outstanding.

Very dark, almost no head
Big coffee presence in the smell, almost green
The taste is also about coffee but the cocoa shows itself a bit more
The mouthfeel is a bit thin for a 7.6% abv stout and not that silky despite the oat presence
Overall it's enjoyable but not the best breakfast stout I've had
