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.

Simply put, the best stout I’ve ever had and my favorite to boot. I didn’t take any notes but I know that all the elements were there, rich coffee delectability, smooth chocolate overtones, hints of cherry, dark and dried fruits. A touch of sweetness but easily the most drinkable high gravity beer I’ve yet tasted. If I could brew any beer flawlessly this is the one I would imitate.

2008 Consumed in 2009 Aroma is loads of coffee, chocolate, Taste is lots of rich chocolate, coffee, and sweet dark malt, bright fruit, and bitter hops. Molasses colored head. Nice retention. Finish is slightly cloying, a bit bitter, and full. Wow, awesome. 2007 batch consumed next to 2008 in 2009 A bit more dirty in the aroma. Floral bright fruit and cheap coffee and chocolate. Chocolate, coffee, a bit more dirt in the taste. Good, but the fresher one was better.

I took a sip of this beer and I woke up. I could definitely taste the coffee. Definitely not a beer I’d drink more than one pint of in a sitting, but I’d be more than willing to get one again.

notes from turkey day 2008 served @ room temp agressive pour leaves 1/2" tan head and a body that is pitch black.. smell is coffee coffee coffee like jaun valdez and his mule popped out of the bottle and said "Buenos dias" - beyond the coffee is some nice chocolate and raosted malts. taste is even better then the smell bitter chocolate with lots of coffee and a nice earthy hop bite finish. mouthfeel is thick and creamy but not too much that you feel you have to use your molars to chew it down. overall this is one of the best stouts i have had. this stout is best when fresh say 1month after bottling. after that the coffee fades and takes it out of that mind blowing beer level.
