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.

GT2 (9347) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 17, 2009
330 mL. Pours jet black with a menacing ultra dark tan head that dwindles to a thin layer leaver spotty lacing. Aromas of espresso, cocoa, coffee grounds, molasses. Taste is huge on the coffee but not too astringent or acidic. Nice oily, coating mouthfeel. Some ultra dark chocolate in the finish. 8.3% is nicely hidden. Excellent.

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2009
this is deffiniatly a coffee loverís dream. Aroma was dominated by roasted cofeee with a heaping of dose of dark chocolate. Poured pretty thick and it coated the mouth nicely, very velvety. Taste lingered for a while with its strong coffee and dark chocolate notes, everything about this was as promised no surprises. I just had to taste this one but it is not my style that is for sure. But on itís merrits I give it a ........

This is up there among my favorite beers-- I was moping about the three I had in my basement from last yearís brewing when I found that the local beer store had a case. Itís an incredibly deep and complex beer, and around Philadelphia Iíve found that the biggest problem is that it gets served too cold (many bars serve pretty much everything at about the same temperature), and itís so, so much better when it gets up above, I donít know, 50 degrees. Warm, cold, whatever-- an excellent beer.

Oily pour with thin chocolate/beige/tan head. Very light coffee smells, really didnt overwhelm me. Didnt get a nose full. Tastes like....cofee. Bitter dry oatmeal and hop finsh. This would definitely go good with bacon and eggs. Good stout.

I mainly get just the coffee on this beer. I was almost unsure that it was an imperial if I didnít already know it was one. Still very good if your dig coffee.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Bottle. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Deep brown-black body, small brown head. Flavor is coffee all the way, with a hint of sweetness in the lengthy finish. If you love coffee, you will love this stout.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2009
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.
