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.

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.

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

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 Bottle. Pitch black, opaque. Aroma not very strong. Flavor is very strong - very roasty, a little sweet with coffee as a lingering aftertaste.

Arayaga2 (1875) - 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.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours with a pitch black color and a medium sized, creamy head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Flavors are mainly of coffee and roasted malts. Very smooth on the palate, with a nice full body. Finishes with a lasting bitterness. Outstanding.

CptGreencoat (95) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2009 Dear lord. Bottle poured into a frosted glass. Nose is coffee and chocolate. Tiny tan head that laces the glass wonderfully. The taste - the fucking TASTE! Its everywhere! Its coffee, its chocolate, its roasted, its bitter and its smooth. A nice milky texture on your palate. This is one to take slowly and admire every last drop. Jesus Christ...

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2009 completely lived up to my expectations of what one of the best stouts should be! chocolate aromas hidden behind a hoppy nose and an unbelievable creamy mouthfeel with excellent coffee and chocolate flavors. very smooth and full.

Wow beautiful deep pour with nice mocha head. Totally toasted coffee grounds and chocolate aromas make their way for a light raspberry fruitiness which was absolutly astouning. I had Attributed these aromas and flavors aas contamonant by outsiders who had also tasted this beer; but these were deemed irrelevant. Wow was a beer. Complex and evolving with immense character and expression. Great mouthfeel and entire palate experience. Very nice indeed which runs the gamut of flavor.
