COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Youíve 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. Weíre 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.

4 pack from Lukas liquors in STL. Pours black with a tan head that settles quickly. Strong nose of coffee and chocolate. Taste is incredible...huge semi sweet chocolate and java.. Smooth mouth feel from the oat. Nice staining on the glass. A much try!!!

Deliciously complex and well blended aroma, but not very strong. Coffee, caramel, and vanilla are predominant, but charred oak, raisins, and molasses are also easily detectable. Deep dark brown, slightly viscous pour, headless. The flavor is strongly of espresso with pruny vanilla undertones and a lasting charcoal finish. Nice mouthfeel, medium body, a little light on the carbonation. A tad off balance toward the dry side. A stout loverís wet dream. Pretty freaking awesome!

islay (2100) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Dry aroma of roasted coffee with a touch of cream. Pours a dark brown with a moderate amount of relatively dark, grayish-tan head. Produces good lacing. The taste is overly bitter with a sweet, fruity finish. Coffee and alcohol flavors. I donít like coffee, so this doesnít do much for me. It does become more bearable on multiple sips. Burnt, dry aftertaste that is not good. Moderate body. Creamy in the palate. Easy to drink. This seems like a relatively well-made if simplistic brew. Given its strong reputation, I was hoping the beer would be good enough to overcome the coffee additive, but itís not. It literally left a bad taste in my mouth. Oh well; itís just another reminder to stay away with anything contaminated by coffee.

From the tap. Black with tan, slowly dissipating head. Sweet malty aroma. Taste: Nothing at first and thenÖthere it is! Rich chocolaty taste slides over your tongue, with just a little bit of coffee bitterness in there to add character. Very delicious.

dagimp (936) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2009
From a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours with one finger of dark brown/gray head which dissipates very quickly. Aroma is all about coffee, maybe a little bit of chocolate but the coffee is where itís at. Mouthfeel is very nice, thick and creamy. Iíve tried a taste of it on draft and it was even better. Taste is a mix of chocolate and coffee with an underlying tartness thatís common to most oatmeal stouts. All flavors blend together nicely and donít leave an overly cloying aftertaste in the mouth. Alcohol is present but very subdued. An overall excellent beer. Itís on the pricey side but worth a taste.

pours a dark black with a small head that retreats quickly. aroma is strong with dominant tones of roasted coffee and a touch of caramel, malt shows nicely, but is a bit one dimensional. mouthfeel is great, carbonation is just right and goes down rich and creamy, like melted chocolate. a very nice stout, and definitely drinkable for breakfast!

hogan873 (451) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2009
Pitch black body with a very thin brown head. Absolutely beautiful. Dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans dominate the inviting aroma. Imagine walking into an upscale coffee shop. Surprisingly smooth and silky, like a glass of milk. A coffee loverís dream. Starts sweet as if you were drinking an iced mocha. Chocolate, coffee and cream. Finishes appropriately bitter. A shot of espresso. A wonderful beer that is remarkably easy to drink, especially considering the ABV.

[bottle] Deep brown color with little head but has lacing that holds on well. Roasted malt chocolate nose, smooth over the tongue and a good balanced of coffee, chocolate and malt. A good after dinner drink
