Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast

Here's an absolutely delicious and complex beer.  It really is perfect for breakfast, or because of the light tobacco flavor, a great alternative to a cigar and cognac, or paired with dark chocolate for dessert.
Brewed in Norway
Oatmeal stout brewed with coffee
7.5% ABV
Pours black; tan head with tons of very tiny bubbles; aromas of dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, cigar tobacco; tastes of chocolate, bitter dark chocolate, dark dried fruit (prune, raisin), light hoppiness, light smokiness; smooth, viscous texture, but light and somewhat creamy; bittersweet, earthy/grassy flavor at the finish.
