650ml, shiny gold wax sealed bottle, and nope, I'm not gonna be drinking this one anywhere near breakfast time! Sorry, dudes (too much TMNT cartoons with my toddler of late!). Oh, and I surely wish that I had a fire with me that could be as lit up as this one might make me!

This beer pours a solid black abyss, with the barest of basal red cola edges, and four fingers (the thumb now indicating that it feels left out) of puffy, finely foamy, and mildly fizzy brown head, which leaves some streaky and pockmarked sudsy lace around the glass as it gently recedes.

It smells of decent cafe-au-lait sweetness up front, over a nicely toasted bready and doughy caramel malt, some bittersweet cocoa powder, a bit of earthy black licorice, ethereal dark orchard fruity notes, and a green hoppiness that has better things to do later in the day. The taste is gritty and grainy caramel malt, a lesser biscuity toffee thing, edgy artisanal coffee, more dark than sweet chocolate wafers, a bit of free-agent ashiness, muddled black stone fruit, and some very tame leafy, weedy, and oh so gently perfumed floral hops.

The carbonation is adequate in its generally supportive frothiness, the body a dense medium weight, and mostly smooth, with just a hint of java bean acridity taking the luster off of this large and in charge offering right about now. It finishes off-dry, but trending towards the latter, with the coffee and, well, not much else really contributing to the cause.

Overall, this is one heady and enjoyable big-boy stout, the coffee adjunct doing well to not overstep its admittedly indeterminate boundaries, while the 16-proof wowee sauce contingent keeps very much to the shadows of palatal perception. So, my good sir, Mr. Smilin' Jay, what thinks you of this ode to morning imbibement, if you're able to do so?
