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.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2014 Sampled on draft at Smokin Joes in Pittsburgh PA this beer poured a pitch black color with a a large, creamy and exceptionally dark brown head - absolutely lovely. The aroma was fairly mediocre dry roasty coffee with not a whole lot more going on. The flavor was an incredibly rich and complex mix of sweet chocolate, cream, toasty malts, marshmallow, malted milk and light sweet coffee. The finish was exceptionally long and smooth with sweet toasty chocolate and malted milk. The mouthfeel was thick and smooth. Very complex with a whole lot going on. Incredible!

Long ago trade with pantanap-thanks. Black, no head. Lots of coffee, chocolate, smoothness. Suprisingly a bit thinner than expected. Alcohol subdued. Well done but I like the KBS better.

12 oz bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94. Pours an opaque black color with a small tan head. The aroma is big and bold with chocolate, burnt malts and coffee. The flavor is more coffee, more chocolate and more coffee. Somewhere in the taste is a bit of tart hops providing a nice complexity. The mouthfeel is full and creamy. The finish is long with lingering coffee and biter walnuts. Overall: A very tasty stout that compares favorably to the worlds best. Thanks brad.

Pour: black body with a creamy tan head. Chocolate, oatmeal, and coffee aroma. Strong roast and some bitterness in the flavor. Light on the hops. Simple, but effective nonetheless.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Pours black with just a little lacing. Full coffee aroma, roasted malt, unsweetened chocolate. Flavor is initially really smoky and reminded me of an old ale. Slightly salty, also leathery. Nice and robust all around. Palate is oily, low carbonation, not extraordinary. Overall, very good.

Foamy tight head and lace on an almost black pour. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Thick chocolate syrup with a nice hard hints of coffee. A nice lingering bitter finish. Full rich palate with medium/low carbonation. A very nice offering.
