On tap at Himmeriget.

Pours an inky black with little foam.

Smell is roasty with plenty of coffee, some chocolate and a bit of golden syrup.

Taste is very coffee driven, almost a bit tart and fruity. On the back end comes some dark chocolate and coffe grounds.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a really terrific breakfast stout, very coffee forward.

On tap at Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a fairly dark black color, with a small head and not much lacing.

This smells like very roasty and slightly ashy coffee, with smoke, chocolate, and roasted malt.

I expected a lot more out of this. The coffee doesn't seem to melt into the base beer all that well- it stands out as slightly acrid and too bitter. The base isn't strong enough to stand up to the intense coffee flavor here.

This is medium bodied, slightly thin, with a lower level of drinkability due to the above factors.

Pours black with a thin cap of white head that left little lacing. Smells and tastes of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, roasted malts and some char. Light to medium bodied for the style, lightly carbonated, creamy mouth feel.
