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.

Just what I look for in an imperial stout. The nose of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate carries into a creamy midpalate with good verve on the finish. Really well-balanced beer that is enjoyable from start to finish.

Pours black with a beautiful chocolate head. Aromas of deep, dark, sumptuous roasted malts, with fresh roasted coffee and rich dark chocolate. The flavor is so incredibly robust and potent. Roasted malt and coffee notes abound, with a surprising amount of bittersweet chocolate and smooth, creamy notes. The alcohol is a bit too present, and offsets the general smooth taste of the beer. Mouthfeel is incredibly full. A fantastic imperial stout, that I’d love to try on tap.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2008
on tap - Capone’s Restaurant - Norristown, PA - WOW - such a great stout! Pours black as tar with a deep tan head. Mild aroma of coffee and roasted malts - maybe some lactose, but if so, very very little. Flavor is crisp and big. Dry unsweetened chocolate, roasted malts and coffee flavors abound. Finishes crisp and clean with a nice cleansing hop bite. A damn near perfect stout.

dankman (253) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Pours black with very little head. Lots of roasted coffee on the nose with a hint of booze to boot. Coffee flavor that has hints of chocolate and some syrupy sweetness. Long lasting finish and a bit cloying.

bierkoning (10169) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2008
Bottle. Almost black, opague. Dark chocolate and coffee in the abundant aroma. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Dark roasted, creamy flavor with pepper, licorice, dark chocolate and coffee. Complex, delicious and overloaded with flavors and aromas.

pepsican (1444) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Pours black with a thin dark tan head. Aroma of coffee and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is coffee up front, but chocolate, maple syrup, oatmeal, malt, and smoke round this out nicely. Nothing is overdone though, and it is indeed just about everything I love about breakfast packed into a bottle. Little carbonation, little trace of the alcohol. Very well done!

UPDATE! R U JOKIN OR WAT PEPSICAN? Thick, harshly bitter, not really picking up on much of what I picked up on for the original rate. Still looks pretty, smells decent, but this is just too much for me. Original rating was 4.1.

IEBAILI (125) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Pours black and viscous with a huge brown head that fades to a thin layer but leaaves lots of heavy lacing. Smell is almost all coffee, strong but simple. Somewhere in there is a little chocolate. Texture is very lush, rich and smooth with a long creamy finish. Flavor is much better than aroma, coffee is strong but does not overpower the chocolate, fig/ date, even a bit of cherry/ berry. A very good breakfast indeed.

undsioux7 (796) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 Pours black with a mocha head. Aroma of coffee grounds, chocolate and burnt roasted malt with a touch of dried fruit. Taste is coffee, bitter chocolate and a bit of dark fruit. This gets more bitter and sweet as it warms. # 400!!

b33r (669) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2012 Black color with medium brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is sweet and roasty with coffee notes. Flavor has strong coffee, chocolate and sweet malts. A little spicy with some alcohol tingle. Good overall, somewhat complex but not over-done.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Draft at Capone’s. Poured black with a light tan head which lingered for a while. Aroma is strong roasted coffee. Taste is of roasted coffee and baker’s chocolate. The alcohol is hidden very well. Nice body, nice dry finish. Happy.
