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.

Smells of wet, sour coffee grounds and a bit of pipe smoke. Smoky, semi-sweet and sour and then dry coffee. Thick and smooth. Nice bitter finish. Quite good.

Dark brown with ruby highlights and a two finger brown lace leaving crown. Aroma of chocolate, oatmeal, coffee and roasted malt. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and oatmeal. Goes down pretty smooth and hides the alcohol well. Palate is medium and finishes up with a very mild hop presence with some chocolate and oatmeal mixed in.

elihapa (1535) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Bottle from Table and Vine in MA. Pours thick black with a nice creamy brown head, warmed to 55-60 degrees. Aroma has rich espresso, notes of licorice, ash, and dark chocolate. Nice mouthfeel on this guy, real creamy and rich, with a full flavor. Body has notes of coffee, primarily, with some mid-palate burnt wood and toffee. Finish descends gently into brown sugar, roasts, baker’s chocolate and more coffee. Excellent brew, extremely well-balanced.

12 oz. bottle. My 100th beer picked on the forum and boy did they choose well! Pours pitch black like used oil with a monsterous creamy brown head. The head is very slow to fade and a sticks to the glass the whole way down, leaving glorius lacing. The aroma is huge. From two feet away I can smell chocolate and roasted malt. As I get closer, I pick up big coffee notes, hints of ripe fruit, and oats. Creamy, thick, and viscous on the tongue. Oily and coating all the way down. The balance here is extraordinary. The palate is awash with chocolate, coffee, deeply roasted malt, oats, and a touch of dark fruit. A bitter chocolate taste lingers in the mouth. Heavy, rich and absolutely decadent!

12 oz bottle. This pours very dark brown with almost no head. Has an aroma of coffee, and chocolates. Flavor is similar with a hint of bitter and oats. All in all a pretty good brew. ($9.99/4pk)

MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2009
Roasted coffee aroma with some salty notes, lasting head, good roasted coffee taste with balsy bitterness in the end. Would have appreciated this even more if a certain european beer involved with those darn weasels wouldn’t have come and triumphed over this. Really good stuff and damn if I could get this here by the dozen I would.

Fin (8864) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2009 Bottle brought along by Craig and tasted at Fin and Craigs pre Cropredy Festival mini tasting at Merton, Oxon 12-08-09 Pours pitch black with a tan head. The aroma is coffee and also a ouch of resin is noted. Coffee rush in the mouth, its creamy, some chocolate, roasty malts, even a slight sourness on the edge which tastes great. Quite lovely and really quite distinctive with that Founders thumbprint coming through, I can’t describe it but there is some unique quality that sets there beers apart. The US Impy Stouts won out tonight against their UK counterparts but it wasn’t all one way traffic. A8 A4 F8 P4 Ov16 4.0

On tap and poured into a snifter this beer produced a midnight black color with a nice 2 finger espresso colored head. The smell is of dark roasted malts and chocolate. Flavor consists of chocolate and bitter coffee/oats on the follow through. The beer is very thick, filling, creamy and satisfying. I would order this again and again.
