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.

12oz bottle-->pint glass. Pitch black. mega head. Aroma is smoky chocolate and espresso. Taste is almost burnt coffee grounds, rich chocolate, and a bit boozy. The coffee flavor is on a par with the scent of cheap, spent coffee grounds. And for me that is worth a lot when it succeeds on the palate. First gulp had an aftertaste of wet dog too, but not in a bad way I guess. Probably just me anyway. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Massive coffee and dark chocolate aroma, the chocolate coming stronger forward as the beer warms up. Pours pitch black, and looks delicious in the glass. The taste is striking, lots of roasted coffee, lots of dark chocolate, smooth as hell. One of the best stouts I have ever had.

Bottle from Drink Bar, they only had it from fridge so I believe it pretty much killed the experience but I’ve heard so much good words about it so I wanted to try it anyway. Really nice dark colour, coffee-chocolate aroma and little bit in taste. Waited a bit stronger consistency and foam but that’s probably because of the low temperature. Not the biggest fan of oatmeal beers but overall very nice stout indeed!

gad905 (162) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle, 20/2/14. Pours unclear dark brown, cream/tan head. Nose of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, roast, dark toffee. Tastes sweet, all the above, some hop bitterness plus plenty of roast to stop it being cloying. Silky smooth, creamy, soft, caresses the palate. This is a perfect balance of all the elements of a good stout coming together, well done.

tricyclist (843) - Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Snifter pour, fully roasted nose with loads or coffee and dark chocolate, bitter mostly. Flavor is fairly bittersweet, mostly black coffee up front with dark chocolate notes. Sharp but enjoyable. I dig it thoroughly.

one of the best and for good reason. Delicious all around, chocolate, coffee, oats all well blended into a nice creamy body. perfect.

oh my gosh! So exited, I can hardly contain myself. Beautiful fatty bubbles on the head. Smells like a big container of coffee and grain. Mmmmmm. What texture. tastes like brewed coffee with foam/chocolate. Bitter from alcohol but not hard to drink at all. Spicy?

Dark chocolate aroma, spicy, bitter, smoky, umami flavour, powerful taste, not as smooth a mouth feel as most oatmeal stouts

330ml bottle. Pitch black color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Massive roast, spicy hops, tobacco, cocoa in aroma. Roast, tobacco, sweetish, mild peat in taste. Nice roast in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Nice one!

Listigovers (365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Rich dark chocolate aroma with the bitter sting of coffee. Pure black with a dark brown head. Full bodied, lots of hops, long bittle finish, dark chocolate and coffee. A huge and excellent beer.
