4.23/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

canned 11/1/19; poured into glass.

Appearance: rich coffee black body, and a thick dark tan head with very low retention and lacing that settles into barely there thin foam ring around the glass
Smell: nutty chocolate with a hint of coffee, smooth maple/honey sweet and roasted malts with deep burnt caramel; hints of leather linger.
Taste: follows the nose pretty spot on. more sweet than bittersweet but coffee/cacao nibs round it out. chocolate for dayzz and that hazelnut is a smooth hit. the coffee really doesn't kick on until the tail end.
Feel: fairly low carbonation, heavy bodied. mostly lush front with a bit of a dry finish on the tongue.

Overall (personal opinion):
delicious and smooth as hell, but a little on the sweet side for my personal choice. you might enjoy if you've had every other coffee or "breakfast" porter/stout and thought that they leaned too much on the coffee, bitterness, or booze from higher abv. the hazelnut and maple notes swing this more into a unique space; one I didn't even realize was missing until this brew.
