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.

twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 3, 2008
bottle. Pours a thick, dark, and scary opaque black. A vigorous pour yields a surprising 1" of foamy dark brown head. Aromas of, like the brewer’s description, heavy dark coffee. Unsweetened coffee and cocoa. Flavors of awesomesauce. Heavy flavors of coffee, bittersweet bakers chocolate, roasted malts, and some chewy oats and grains. Dominated by coffee and cocoa. Surprisingly little booze flavors. Superbly drinkable and enjoyable for such a big and thick brew. Palate is stunning- thick, but smooth and clean finishing. A brew that easily lives up to the hype it gets.

dchmela (2634) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2008
12oz bottle courtesy polomagnifico. Pours black with a thick tan head. Big silky oatmeal coffee aroma that is just beautiful. Chocolate, coffee, oatmeal, silky smooth with a slight bitterness. Really a nicely balanced stout that combines some great flavors of coffee and chocolate. An awesome stout.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Sparky27. Thanks for this one. Pours an amazing viscous black with 2 fingers of deep brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, barley. Flavor is silky chocolate, coffee and a surprising amount of hop bitterness. Very well done Imperial Stout. YUM!

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Bottle, courtesy the handsome Gilliard. Pours black, with a hazy ring of creamy head and tons of lacing. Giant heaps of roasted malts pound the nostrils with coffee and chocolate, too. Love it. Roasted malts and coffee in the flavor too (surprise!) and everything finishes with a nice hoppy end. Immensely drinkable and easy to put down. Thereís nothing insanely unique here, just another very well-crafted imperial stout.

Duker (2) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2008 does not count
Phenominal! one of the best beers i have ever had. It has the hearty feeling of a stout but a tinge of sweetness. I canít believe such a small brewery in my college town could make such an exceptional brew! TRY IT!

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2008
Bottled (vintage 2005?)
Pitch black, huge brown creamy-cloudy head, lots of lace. Dark roasted malty aroma with tobacco and some chocolate. Full-bodied - heavy, coffee and pipe tobacco overdose. Tarry finish. Soft palate. Some hops in the aftertaste. This is not a beer for fast drinkers!

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2008
Bottled (thanks jjpm74!). Pitch black colour, big brown bubbly head that takes itís while before settling. Nice lace. Aroma is roasted malts, tobacco, smoke, coffee, chocolate and mild hints of vanilla. Flavour is tobacco, coffee, chocolate and some bittering hops. Coffee and some acidic notes in the aftertaste. A very pleasant brew.
