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.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Pours black with just a little lacing. Full coffee aroma, roasted malt, unsweetened chocolate. Flavor is initially really smoky and reminded me of an old ale. Slightly salty, also leathery. Nice and robust all around. Palate is oily, low carbonation, not extraordinary. Overall, very good.

Foamy tight head and lace on an almost black pour. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Thick chocolate syrup with a nice hard hints of coffee. A nice lingering bitter finish. Full rich palate with medium/low carbonation. A very nice offering.

brew4fun (209) - West Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2009
What’s not to like? Black pour, persistent tan head leaves consistent lacing. Heavenly aroma of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Very full body with thick texture. Nutty and very roasty flavor, pronounced but not overwhelming dark chocolate overlay. Good stuff.

snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2009 Bottle in the hotel on the way to the airport to avoid having to pack it. Tasted along with Great Lakes Blackout stout. Pours black with a thin tan head. Smells and tastes like DARK bitter chocolate, coffee, oatmeal, and roasty malt. Thick with a bitter, slightly mineral-ish finish.

jerico (2) - , Alabama, USA - JUN 1, 2009 does not count
A real dark one here, head is dense and leaves bubble marks on it that look like craters on the moon. Its a bit nutty, with that toasty, mild coffee and chocolate smell that you’d expect. It’s thick and dense, toasty, tasting of bitter chocolate and coffee (like biting a coffee bean or cocoa nib). Its character really comes out when it warms up a bit.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle. Thanks to MasterSki. A black beer with a thick light brown head. Amazing nose of fresh roasted coffee and malt. Thick creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Flavor is delicate, sweet malt, bitter chocolate, some really nice mild coffee notes, and maybe a touch of tobacco. Coffee, slightly acidic finish.

Damico (2948) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2009
The aroma is molasses and toffees with some sweetness. It has a thick, opaque deep brown, almost oil black color. There is a deep crimson head on top. It tastes like a rich full breakfast with the flavor of maple and coffee. This beer is absolutely whopping with flavor.

Poured oily black with a tan head. The aroma was mainly coffee. Taste was sweet and malty with some coffee and chocolate notes.
