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.

Bottle. Deep brownish black and supports a medium tall, dense and creamy light brown head. Strong dark roasted coffee and fresh from the oven brownie aroma. Rich flavors with a mix of bittersweet chocolate, toffee, vanilla and coffee with a touch of pepper at the very end. Silky, creamy texture and a warming finish that’s full of flavor and surprisingly dry. A great stout.

There’s a lot going on in this beer. The finish is complex, with bitterness from the coffee, chocolate, and hops all adding a different layer. The chocolate is such a nice touch, and it separates this brew from many of the other coffee beers that I have tried. All the flavors mesh really well, and this is world class for sure. A little pricey, but worth it.

Pours so dark black I can’t see through it even when I hold it up to the light. I aggressively poured and got a nice frothy chocolate colored head. However that quickly disappeared. Aroma is strong. I didn’t even have to approach the glass and I could smell the roast. Smells of heavily roasted malts and coffee grounds. Taste is a little astringent with heavy roast and coffee grounds present. If you wait a bit a bitterness with form on the back sides of the tongue. I little bit thin but hides alcohol. I know really want to try the Kentucky Breakfast.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2008 Pours a deep black with a small this head. As a coffee lover this is the beer for me. Tastes heavily of coffee and malt. Great beer and very drinkable if it was only cheaper. Had on tap at Barleys.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 30, 2008
THOUGHTS: Not the best Impy, but a great beer. A little one-sided, but it’s a great side. Hid alcohol incredibly well. More coffee than beer, really. But tat was fine by me. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark, nearly black, brown that was opaque, black in the glass with a small, light brown, head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma was mostly heavy strong coffee, then there was heavy dark bread, oats and roasted and burnt malts with a little cream. The initial flavor was heavily sweet and lightly acidic; while the finish was heavily sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, and sour with and average to long duration. There was mostly coffee, then caramel, a little chocolate, roasted oats and maybe a little hops showing at the end. The full body was creamy then oily with lightly fizzy with a moderate astringent finish.

Simply outstanding. Pours black, with a small head. Aromas of coffee, malt, and something I can not place. Taste follows suit with great espresso flavors with a great balance of hops and malt. Great beer.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2009 12 oz bottle, biggest coffee flavored beer EVER! A black colored beer with a very nice tan colored head. The aroma is very dry and very roasted coffee. The taste is more roasted coffee beans.Kinda reminded me of a day old black. The alcohol comes through but really it’s just too coffee dominated for my liking. Expected more from this overhyped beer. REally did not think this beer was all that great, the bourboun stout on the other hand is well balanced and not over coffeed! Re-Rate 02/20/09 5 months cellered. Mellowed out a bit. Taste much smoother, silkie. Enjoyed it a bit more

pours like chocolate syrup with thin brownish head. very mellow flavor for over 8%. lots of coffee and chocolate, some caramel in the background. might be slightly too fizzy for an imperial stout...

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2009 Crushed with Jakebra. A slow sipper to be sure. Kicks ass in just about every way. Had a argument with Honkeybra about whether or not it was top 50. I was wrong. Lotsa coffee flavor, with lotsa beer. Aw yeah. Re-rate. Was a little too drunk and tired to rate this one properly before, and she’s aged about 5 months since. Crushed with Jakebra. Rush of chocolate and coffee on the nose. Awesome. Flavor is more coffee with a big rush of bittering hops in the finish. A little thin-bodied. Not sure if it’s as good as Founder’s Imperial Stout, but even so, great brew.

I was so excited when I found this in the store today. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Nice aroma of coffee, chocolate, malt, and some oak. Seriously, when you drink it it seems like strong coffee. Amazing coffee flavor. You taste more chocolate as you get towards the end of the beer and it warms. Very good beer, so glad to finally try it.
