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.

BillKismet (3393) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Pours and oily thick substance with a chocolate head. Deep, oily, robust, roasted aroma with a thick, full-bodied, viscous mouthfeel that delivers robust roastiness, coffee grains, black patent malts, and a pinch of alcohol to the palate. Moderate roast bitterness and deep, dark, chocolate on the finish. Flavors never unwind enough for me. To thick and unrelenting. Okay, but really, what’s the big deal?

Pours black as night with a thin but persistent nut brown head. Aroma is Coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, toasted oats, cinamon and spices. Flavor is huge and powerful yet somehow smooth, incredibly smooth. Coffee, dark chocolate truffle, burnt sugar, dark toasted marshmallows, toasted grains, cinamon, a hint of smoke, oh yeah and tons sof delicious sweet sweet roast malts. Finish is roasty and slightly bitter, with a little char.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours silky black with a thin brown head. Can really smell the coffee in this one, that is the dominating aroma. Taste is more of the same, some bitterness, a hint of chocolate. Finish is a little harsh. Decent mouthfeel. Not bad.

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Poured black and viscous like motor oil with a negliable amount of head. Had a HUGE coffee aroma that completely filled the senses. However the flavor was surprisingly light and refreshing and the coffee didn’t overpower in the mouth or the throat. In the end I felt the a slight bit 1-dimensional, but true to the name. Quite a remarkable beer that doesn’t try to overpower just because it could. Truly a nice drink.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Pour from the bottle revealed a dark black hue with a minimal tan head. Aromas of coffee and dark dark chocolate with a roasty smoky scent. Very smooth on your tongue. Biter cocoa, coffee and hops.Long finish to the beer with a predominant bitter hoppiness. Not as rich in complex flavors as I had hoped from such a renowned brew. Tasty overall though.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Rating 700. 12oz bottle from Parti-Pak Liquors (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a velvety dark black immpermeable to light with a thick frothy milk chocolate head that settles slowly and laces the glass heavily. Aroma is strong roasted malt and coffee notes with hints of wheat, caramel and bourbon. Flavor is much of the same – roasted malt and strong coffee notes with hints of molasses, toffee, dark chocolate and hints of bourbon and wood. Full body with a strong roasted coffee finish.

fizzban (27) - whitehouse, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2008
This was a good beer however not nearly as chocolatelaty or coffyish as others have been. good but does not stand up to its 100 rating. was disapointed. I think samsmith oatmeal and sam adams chocolat bock blow this away

Arayaga2 (1819) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2009 Black brown with 1" creamy brown head. Aroma is intense, beautiful coffee, with sweet chocolate notes. Flavor is equally intense, and more coffee than beer, with lingering bitterness that fades into chocolatey sweetness. $4/12oz.
