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.

Pours an opaque black/brown with think tan head. Aroma is unground espresso beans, roasted malts and oats with brown sugar and a light hint of cinnamon. Flavor a medium roast Ethiopian coffee with light notes of cinnamon and roasted malt. There is the bitterness of bittersweet chocolate present. Body is thick and yet not creamy, reminiscent of a rich cup of coffee with a bit of heavy cream. Carbonation is mild but present. Pretty good.

Bottle. Big thick black pour. Flavor is french roast coffee, lactose, oatmeal, cinnamon sugar, candy sugar, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Thick thick thick on the palate, chewy as a bowl of oatmeal. Warming dry coffee bitter finish. Delicious.

On tap. Jet black, thin cocoa colored head. Aroma is chocolate and strong coffee. Flavor was strong roast coffee, cocoa, smokey, vanilla and maple sweetness. Wonderful creamy palate. Just the right amount of carbonation. Warming dry and bitter finish. Excellent.

This beer poured a motor oil black with a nice brown head to it and plenty of lacing. The smell of it was like a flavored coffee - lots of coffee, chocolate and spice. Very nice taste to this beer - for a double the alcohol did not overwhelm but was just right and the chocolate, coffee, nuttiness and malt made this an almost perfect beer. The mouthfeel was nice and creamy. I drank one of my favorite porters by another brewer after this beer and realized how much that beer paled in comparison to this one - this is a winner and will be regular in my beer fridge.

TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours a thick black, with a very thin tan head. Coffee dominates the aroma - chocolate is also prominent. The flavor is complex - coffee dominates, then gives rise to chocolate and malts. The alcohol is barely detectable. Nice mouthfeel. An excellent stout, though very coffee-heavy, almost to the point of imbalance.

Very nice brew. Pours black with very little head. Strong coffee aroma/taste throughout. Very nice vanilla balance in the finish, but silky smooth gong down. Very easy drinking. Would drink again.

Thanks OTH Group for the share. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is straight up coffee, chocolate, cinnamon, chicory, and some noticeable vanilla. Flavor has lots of coffee, with some noticeable cinnamon spice, earthiness, and hop bitterness. Very good beer, but it leans very heavily on the coffee flavor.

Hugely complex.... Not as overbearing as most coffee stouts... The other flavors show up in every sip.... Amazing beer.... The nose is overpowered by the coffee, but the taste is not....

I had been searching for a full serving of this beer ever since getting a sample from the Michigan booth at the GABF and was able to secure it over Christmas. Motor oil black pour with a decent brown head. Smell of sweet chocolate, coffee and oatmeal. Goes down silky smooth with taste of coffee and milk chocolate.

On tap at Capones. Lots of coffee in the nose. Chocolate and coffee dominate the palate and it finishes only slightly bitter. Very good.
