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.

A beautiful beer. Very dark with a mocha colored head that lasts forever. The nose is all roasted malt and espresso. The flavors are incredibly layered, roast malt, coffee, dark fruits. Itís hard to imagine so much flavor that well balanced. Finish is dry and then a kind of time-release effect: a few seconds after you drink, thereís a burst of rich roastiness. Wow, why didnít I buy more of this?

Wow. I know they say youíre supposed to drink this fresh when itís super-coffee, but I left it sit 6 weeks, and the coffee has lost its abrasiveness and the chocolate is sublime. The mouthfeel is unreal. I canít believe itís taken me this long to rate. Given my choice of fresh or with a bit of time for the coffee to subside a little (heresy, I know) Iíd take it with just a bit of time.

Nice roasted aroma. Opaque black with decent tan head. Charred flavor with a clean finish; hints of the described chocolate, coffee, and oatmeal.

gpekar (494) - Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Poured solid black with a tall creamy brown head. The head left nice lacing througout the glass. The aroma was sweet chocolate and coffee with just a hint of alcohol. The initial taste was of milk chocolate with a creamy texture. In just a second or two the flavor rolled into more of a espresso coffee bitterness. The coffee flavor remand, but the bitterness mellowed on the fnish leaving more of a smokey sense on the palate, with just a bit of warmth from the alcohol, which was hidden very well. Very enjoyable beer!!

Draft at brewery. Pitch black colour, tan head. Aroma has lots of roasted malts and roasted coffee. Flavour of roasted malts, bitter coffee and chocolate. The roastiness is particulary nice.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2009
A deep and viscous stout with a thin moka head. Strong aroma of Nestle Quick, and cappuccino coffee, fresh cereals, intense and pungeant. In mouth, a silky fruity stout, with coffee grinds, espresso, roasted cereals, smooth and silky, lots going on in mouth in this one. Rich and silky.

lefossoyeur (587) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2009
Pitch black with a thin a fading tan head. Intense nose of green coffee and milk chocolate. Full body with light carbonation, dominant flavors are green coffe (unroasted) first and finishes on cocoa and a little bit of roasted grains. Persistance of the aftertaste is quite notable. Almost like, as a kid, when I had too much of corn flakes with Quick cocoa milk...

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Itís 10:45 am and 35 degrees in Boulder, perfect time for a Breakfast Stout. Bottled. Black as oil with creamy milk chocolate head. Aroma is roasted but not burnt, mild coffee, bitter unsweetened chocolate and soft oatmeal/grain. Smells like your house while your mom is baking. Flavor is roasted, salty and lingering light sweetness. Light alcohol burn in the throat, long roasted finish. Texture is lighter than it appears and is oily, medium bodied for an imperial stout.

07 bottle. Pours a thick pitch black with a thick mocha head which lasts. Aroma is all dark chocolate and espresso. Alcohol presence as well. Taste is more dark chocolate and espresso, smoke. Dark dark chocolate bitterness which stays on the tongue in the finish. The best coffee stout next to Kentucky Breakfast Stout.
