Many thanks to SawDog505 for this can.

A - Pitch black pour with frothy, sticky coffee colored lacing.

S - Dark chocolate, roasted malt, light char, and coffee.

T - Char, coffee roast, dark chocolate malt with a hint of sweetness and a little bit of cream at the very back end.

M - Big medium body that's borderline full bodied and has a little bit of thinness around the edges.

O - An easy drinking stout packed full of flavor.

This beer was a dark black color. There was a small tan head.
Strong coffee aroma, charred grain, and a hint of chocolate.
Espresso coffee, chocolate. The char persists for some time.
Very dry.

16oz can into a pint glass. canned 3/5/18, so 4 months old.

pours muddy brown but produces a a black body with a healthy bubbly tan head. leaves good lacing.

nice aroma of coffee

smooth tasting stout with a slightly bitter coffee accent. There is a hint of chocolate towards the end.

Close to full on the mouth, slightly bitter coffee on the finish.

Overall, a very enjoyable drinkable coffee oatmeal stout. Happy to have another 3 cans in the fridge.

Poured from a 16oz can into a tulip.

L: Pours dark, 1/2" or so of creamy brown head, faded quickly.
S: Roasty, hints of chocolate, vanilla, coffee.
T: Bitter and sweet marry in the best of ways. Not at all overpowering in one direction or the other, which is something I was worried about. Chocolate, coffee, slightly burnt notes. No hint of the alcohol.
M: Slightly thinner than I was expecting, but low carbonation, and enjoyable overall.
O: I've been hit or miss with Springdale, however thoroughly enjoyed this beer. For me, hit all the notes I'd expect a breakfast stout to hit. Not overly sweet, right balance of bitterness.

[IMG] Poured near room temperature into my favorite Teku glass. Pours a very dark mahogany with a very attractive half inch light brown head that leaves very attractive thin rings of lace as it slowly settles into a thick layer of bubbles. 4.25

Smell is cocoa nibs, dry coffee beans, French vanilla, and some biscuity grains. 4

Taste follows but bigger and better cocoa and coffee just dominates this beer, with some vanilla and biscuity grain in the bold dry finish. 4.5

Mouthfeel is a big medium, plenty of carbonation for the style, seem dry as a bone and that isn’t a complaint, and tastes bigger than its 7.5% ABV. 4.25

Overall this is a great, fairly one dimensional beer. Roasty, dry, and so darn tasty.4.25

After seeing the ABV on this guy, I opted for a tulip.
The appearance was a mostly dark brown close to black color with a rim of light tan foamy head. Some light lace ran around the glass nicely. Some sticking, some sliding.
The aroma had a superb blend of sweet milk and dark chocolate to some vanilla wafers then a light coffee roast. Sly char.
The flavor yields to the sweetness of the chocolate blends. Slight touch of coffee roast. Light aftertaste of the chocolate blend, slight vanilla.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt a bit lower than expected but that didn't bother me. ABV felt good. Slight stickiness with some roasty sweetness in the finish.
Overall, pretty damn nice breakfast stout. I'd definitely have again. Wouldn't mind a blind taste test of this and Founders Breakfast Stout.

Poured dark black. Decent head left quick some lacing.
Smell of chocolatey coffee.
Taste...great blend. Sweet to bitter chocolate to coffee.
Really good
Feel surprisingly thin for oatmeal stout. Not saying this is thin. It's not. Just not as thick as most oatmeal stouts.
Overall...I will go look for more of this

Poured from a can dated 1/23/18 into the test glass. Served at 45 Degrees.
A - As dark as they get in color, An aggressive pour yields an mocha colored loose knit froth. As the experience continues small clusters of lacing cling to the glass
S - Muted coffee, cocoa , roast malt, and a bit of char are the basis for a really good aromatic boquet
T - More coffee in this aspect, balanced well with the dark chocolate, a hint of molasses, raisin, add an earthy portobello to the mix as well.
M - Lactose knocks this into the full body category, start is sweet then a quick shift toward bitter from the coffee and chocolate. Ending with a semi sweet linger. The carbonation is up to the task of cleaning up.
O - A very good breakfast stout, with an increase in temperature the sweet side becomes prominent. Coffee, chocolate and a strong malt base are just what the stout doctor ordered. This will be a constant resident in the fridge.
