COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You’ve got to love coffee to truly appreciate this phenomenal brew. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and sweetened imported chocolates, Sumatra and Kona coffee. We’re actually not sure if this is some type of coffee cake or a beer. Either way you can drink this ale with a fork. Breakfast Stout has an intense fresh roasted coffee nose toped with a cinnamon colored frothy head that seems to never fade and makes you wish breakfast could last forever.

Mildly sweet dark malt with a strong roasted coffee aroma. Black color with a medium brown head. Flavor of sweet chocolate and bitter coffee. Bitterness is is strongest at the very beginning and the end. Middle to finish dominated by the sweet. Palate is lighter than you would expect.

Merci à Gilles d’avoir partagé cette bouteille. Au nez, le chocolat est à peine perceptible mais présent. Petit arôme de viande fumée. L’olfactif ressort difficilement. Noire avec une petite mousse brune, délicate. Visuel correct. Gustatif: Chocolat noir avec petite amertume; café. Subtil, bien dosé, mais rien de bien particulier ne ressort. Surtout chocolat noir. Agréable. Un peu de mélasse. Bon dosage sucre et amertume. Agréable, mais rien d’explosif.

This is heaven. Coffee, chocolate, roasted malts; a dark and delicious experience that is well-balanced to want to keep putting this down forever. One of the first crafts I had a few years ago before that got me out of the dull light beer life.

Not as sweet & overwhelming as KBS which makes it more drinkable and balanced to me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

firemarshal (168) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle. Black color. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, licorice. Taste is cough syrup, roasted almost burnt coffee, dark chocolate. This is very hoppy in that the malt does not overpower it. Pretty good.

As soon as I see this beer I buy it. Dark and full bodied, warming and malty. Chocolate and coffee make a great combination and a great oatmeal undertone create a beer with a full and lasting flavor.

Interesting beer and aptly named ... only thing I did not like was some chalkiness in the palate. A good beer to bring with you on an early morning fishing trip.

There may be a better imperial coffee stout, but I haven’t come across it yet. Nice roasty aroma, tan head and inky dark brown in color. Medium creamy with clean bitter finish.

12oz bottle into a snifter, at room temp. 1/2" khaki head, deep rich brown, almost black, color. Faint chocolate aroma. Intense chocolate/coffee flavor, delicious. To be savored.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in Duvel tulip glass. A: Pours deep black color forming a big creamy, solid and persistent beige head. Beautiful. Lots of lingering lacings are formed and left in the glass S: A chocolate bomb. Strong notes of dark chocolate and roasted malts. Also some notes of coffee, vanilla and wood T: Follows the nose: Strong notes of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and oak. Notes of vanilla. A bit sweet and molasses upfront followed by the pleasant 60IBU bitterness M: Heavy creamy molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Roasted malts aftertaste O: Great drinkability. For sure one of the best Imperial Stouts I’ve ever had. Smooth and molasses. Delicious [ BA Review @ 2/18/2012 ]
