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.

On tap at Kip’s pint glass, pours very dark brown with a tan head, some lacing. Dark aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt, with hints of cinnamon, licorice . Super smooth and rich in the mouth, plenty of chocolate and oatmeal flavor. Full bodied beer with smooth finish. A well balanced stout.

Can’t believe I’ve never rated this. Very dark with coffee crema head. No lacing. Nose of coffee, rich chocolate and roasted malts. Smooth, with light bitter coffee, dark bakers chocolate. Lightly sweet in the middle, but long lingering bitterness.

To me this tastes like straight used coffee grounds more than coffee or coffee beans. Maybe it depends on the person, not bad though if you like stouts. Dunno if it’s worth the price

Gobs of chocolate and coffee on the nose, pouring pitched black. Entry, middle, and finish are perfectly aligned with flaked oats for silky mouthfeel.The finish is fabulous, not too sweet and not too bitter. Overall, everything you look for in this style.

Decent stout, not as coffee-heavy as I would have hoped. A little flat. Not a bad stout, to be sure, just nothing out of the ordinary here.

12 oz bottle, packaged on 10/17/15, sampled on 10/25/15, super fresh.
Black with a creamy tan head, that slowly recedes leaving webs of lace.
Aroma is big on coffee, but there is also some oatmeal, milky chocolate, and a touch of vanilla.
Flavor is dark roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla, oats, and a touch of resiny hops.

Beer pours black as the ace of spades. Nice full light brown head is pretty slow to dissipate. Aroma is roast of coffee with some chocolate. Taste is medium bitter up front with coffee roast, but finishes out pretty smooth with a hint of chocolate sweetness. Notes of coffee and chocolate are the main taste. Full bodied beer with average carbonation and a smooth finish. Nice complexity but well balanced.
