4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2011 vintage. 12oz bottle into a tulip.
Pours a thick opaque black like used motor oil. Really no head at all and just a thin ring around the top of the beer.
Aroma of is rich coffee and chocolate like a cappuccino. Some roasted character along with caramel and toffee. Also a touch of vanilla; a very inviting aroma.
The flavor is even better. Coffee and caramel up front along with a hint of whipped cream and brown sugar. Some espresso roast and bitterness compliments the sweetness perfectly. Some vanilla and maple syrup comes in but everything leads to a moderately dry, coffee-like finish. Mouthfeel is full and slick but it is never too sweet.
Overall, an absolutely world-class beer. So full of flavor and extremely drinkable. I really wish I would have gotten more than just a four pack and I need to try to get some more of this while I can.

One of the best stouts for the money if you like the chocolate/coffee/oatmeal combo. Extremely smooth drinking with a great mouth feel. It really is like a meal in a bottle.

From notes, had this with friends over a game of scrabble. This beer is absolutely fantastic young and I put a few away for aging so I am exited to see how they age. Had in a brandy snifter.

Overall: Initial taste is very well balanced with a large dose of coffee and dark malt flavored that are of set by equal amounts of hops that keeps the drinkability factor extremely high. One of my all time favorites

Had a fresh ass 2013 12oz bottle. It pours out dark black with a beige head. The smell makes my nose jump for joy. Huge notes of coffee and chocolate. The coffee scent really over powers everything. The taste makes my tongue feel like jump kicking a punk ass. The perfect balance of coffee and chocolate make each sip that much sweeter. And that awesome coffee flavor lasts for a while. As close to perfect as you can get with a stout. I get this beer every year and I’m never let down. In my humble and honest opinion this Breakfast beats the KBS. Beer elites everywhere might fight my ass over that comment. But it’s how I roll.

Bold coffee and chocolate notes right up front on the palette. Aroma is a bit lighter than expected, but still amazing. Great beer as a whole.

Jet black pour, toffee head. Coffee & dark roast malt in the nose. Sweet. Middle is velvety chocolate, coffee, and oats. Finish is more of the same with some hop bitterness signing off. Alcohol is well cloaked.
