*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 10-16-07. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

First off I need to send mad props to Jay23 for this beer, thanks!

This is from the most recent batch. Poured at cellar temp.

Pours a dark chocolate color with some light brown foam.

Oh man the smell! You can smell this one as it pours. There is some sweet chocolate, powdered cocoa, coffee, vanilla bean, roasted malts, and oats; easily one of the best smelling stouts I've encountered. The aroma is, dare I say, orgasmic. I'm just taking my time with this one, letting it warm up a bit more to get some more aromas before I take my first sip. This is one of the most chocolate smelling stouts I've had in front of me, very nicely done.

Fist sip is pure bliss. The taste really holds up well with the aromas. Chocolate and coffee flavors upfront with some slight burnt barley and chocolate malts in the finish. Some oats also detected towards the end along with some bitter chocolate. Big aftertaste as well. The mouthfeel is incredibly smooth, rich and thick. This is a chocolate and coffee elixir. The slightest hint of alcohol is present to remind you that this is an alcoholic beverage.

The drinkability is very good but it could start to feel a little too sweet after one glass.

I could eat this stuff for breakfast. Screw Starbucks coffee, gimme some Breakfast Stout in the morning.
