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.

Merry Christmas to me! Enjoyed on christmas morning in my Surly Darkness goblet. Pours a thick oily black with a creamy mocha head. Smell- Lots of dark chocolate and roasty goodness. Taste- Coffee roast and ash balanced off with lactic sourness from the oats. Chocolate is actually subdued in the taste. Very creamy mouthfeel which finishes dry and bitter. Definitely an eye opener

Pours black as night with a rediculous amount of chocolate head that dies slow. Smells of roast, dark chocolate and intoxicating coffee. Taste as it smells with the oatmeal making a presence as well. Feels medium in the mouth and smooth as silk. This is mighty tasty out of the bottle and not much different from when I had it on tap. Extremely drinkable, just like a cup of incredible joe with a brewers twist.

Sincerly let down. The coffee tasted and smelled like day old coffee grinds... Would like to give this another try, as it was drank at the end of a tasting.... and I was a little ROASTY!

On tap, big chocolate and toffee aromas with a hint of pine in the background. Dark as night with a smallish tan head. Nice and thick, really adhered to the inside of the glass. Light on the palate makes it a pretty easy drinking beer. Sweet up front with a slightly dry, bitter finish. Lots of roasted notes and dark toasted chocolate flavors. Enjoyable for sure.

Bouteille 12oz, courtoisie de Hogtownharry. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de café espresso, de chooclat noir (notes de chocolat au lait), de malt assez rôti, moyen de houblon herbeux avec des notes de crème et des traces réglisse noire. Ronde-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture riche et crémeuse. Notes de chocolat au lait et de crème (faibles notes lactiques) accompagné de traces de réglisse noire et de levures fruitées (notes de mûres, de raisins et de prunes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute très rapidement un goût amer de malt très rôti (brûlé) et de chocolat noir (traces de mélasse sucrée) parallèlement à un goût de café espresso corsé qui est présent jusqu’en finale où l’on retrouve un léger goût de houblon herbeux ainsi que des notes de noix asséchantes et d’alcool doux. Post-goût très long et un peu sec, amer de café, de rôti, de chocolat noir et léger de houblon herbeux avec des notes d’alcool doux.

This one has been sitting in the fridge for a while and i’m not sure why i pulled it out now other than the fact it had been staring at me asking me to drink it for so long. Pours like any other stout black with a minimal brown head. Completely opaque. Big coffee aroma. Getting some licorice in there as well. Coffee and melted milk chocolate flavors are delectable. Slight hop flavoring to balance all the crazy ass malt out. This is one of the more entertaining impy stouts i’ve had in a while.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 Pours a think jet black color with the darkest brown poofy head I have ever seen. Smells like a cup of fresh roasted coffee. The mouthfeel is so soft and the finish has no alcoholic bite at all. This is like a cup of to dark coffee and chocolate. Taste is intense roasted with a lasting chocolately finish. It does not get much closer to perfect than this.
