Massive, full-bodied, velvety smooth, viscous, thick and chewy feel on the palate - thanks to the oatmeal, in part. Roasted malt astringent twang, with some hoppy character mingled in some herbal spice and leaf. Bitter chocolate. Plenty of coffee flavors with an acidic bite, silky milk chocolate character soothes. Oak-y. Molasses notes. Stodgy cooked oatmeal in the flavor. Hints of sherry in the warming alcohol, with a low spice. Finish lingers with a play on sweet malts and dry, bitter savories. Sweet alcohol burn becomes part of the linger as the beer warms. Breakfast Stout? Hell yeah! That's when I tried my sample! What a way to kick-off my morning. Quite possibly one of the most interesting American Double Stouts on planet Earth. Absolutely delicious.
