Bottle from Vesuvio. Pours inky black with a tan head. Nice coffee aroma. Loads of flavour to this. Coffee, chocolate liquorice and light spice. Quite a dry bitter finish. Good body. Tasty stuff.

Pours almost black with predominant coffee aroma. Tobacco and chocolate too but the coffee dominates and I agree with the reviewer that says there’s a disappointing burnt coffee flavour that kicks in.

Large bottle from Favourite Beers Cheltenham. Dark almost black colour with a greyish brown head. Aroma had lots of coffee, The taste had the twiggy burnt notes I associate with really badly made coffee. Hard to drink and couldn’t have finished a whole bottle.

Bottle. Black with a small head. Chocolate and to a lesser degree coffee are the prominent flavours. Smooth and easy to drink. With this strength I don’t think it would be a breakfast drink. Another good one from this brewery.

568 ml bottle from Birra+. Very dark brown, but looks black in the glass, strangely with pretty much no head, even with a very aggressive pour. Nice coffee presence upfront, lots of roasted malts as expected, a hint of graininess, perhaps some type of dark/berries type of fruits as well. Not much going on, but nice intensity and cleanliness. If the lack of head was any indication, I knew to be ready to expect a quasi flat beer. Light astringency upfront, again plenty of bitter chocolate and especially coffee notes. Mild toffe/burnt caramel presence in the background. Probably way too boozy being this flat and not really easy to drink, but that’s what I have in the glass. No carbonation, medium to full body, oily texture. Shame about the carbonation, because the aroma and taste aren’t bad at all.

Breakfast stout meravigliosa!!! L’ho comprata su cantinadellabirra.it. Ero scettico all’inizio ma mi sono subito ricreduto al primo assaggio. Aroma stupendo di caffe e cioccolato fondente.Nera impenetrabile. Schiuma pannosa e persistente.In bocca ritorna il sapore di caffè amaro e cioccolato con aggiunta di liquirizia e panna. Una delle breakfast stout più buone mai provate!
