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.

2007 vintage. Pours pretty much pitch black with the faintest possible mahogany tint. A thick, foamy, coffee colored head displays excellent retention, lasting the entire drink and coating the glass in heavy sheets of lace. The aroma is big and chocolaty, with huge notes of coffee, mocha, heavy cream, and oatmeal. The flavor is equally huge and incredibly smooth. Mocha milkshake comes to mind. Chocolaty, roasty, sweet, and creamy pretty much sums this one up. The mouthfeel is full, silky, and not at all cloying. For some reason, I’m trying hard not to like this beer, but it isn’t working. I’m pleasantly surprised, especially after not being that impressed with the Kentucky version. Awesome brew.

Tap @ Monk’s. Black w plenty of perpetually self regenerating dark tan head. Very rich, creamy, spicy, hops, roasted malt, coffee, & chocolate aromas. Flavor is all the usual high end desirable imp stout characteristics described above delivered on a surprisingly creamy, silky smooth palate. Only possessing moderate sweetness with plenty of hop flavor and bitterness. Complex, spicy experiences woven throughout. Alcohol integrated perfectly. Well into full bodied. Excellent Imperial Stout. I can hit this again anytime.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 Big thanks to mcbackus for sending this one my way. Sinply put, there are tons o’ coffee in this one. Coffee coffee coffee. Black and thick, with a small head. Big bubbles all around. Not a lot going on in the aroma, but the flavor makes up for it. Almost like blending up oatmeal and coffee and drinking that. Not as thick as the decription leads you to believe (drink it with a fork? not quite), but still thick and full of flavor. Very malty and delicious on the palate. Very nice. YUM!

A.C Beer fest... a strong aroma that reminded me of the Nestle factory in freehold (you local people know what im talking about). Deep black color , Tasted as good as it looked. all i needed was an I-HOP to finish out the morning.

Bottle. Pitch black with a short light brown head. Coffe roasty soft sweet malty aroma. Quite good mouthfeel. Lovely roasty maltiness in the flavour along with coffee and a pleasant bitterness. Roastish pepper finish. Yes mamma!

12 oz bottle courtesy of BBB63. Pours a impenetrable black with a HUGE ANGRY brown head. Had to walk away and watch some hockey while the foam calmed down. Dark lacing thickly coats my snifter. Huge nose of espresso coffee. Have you ever gone off for the day and left the coffee pot plugged in? Well the aroma of burnt coffee you get when you return home is what this beer smells like. Flavor is, yup you guessed it, coffee. So much so I expected coffee grounds in the bottom of my snifter. Also, some flavor of bakers chocolate and caramel. Would have given a higher rating if it were better balanced. Just to much coffee. Glad I’ve had the opportunaty to try this brew.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 29, 2008
12 oz bottle 2007. Pours a black opaque color with a small creamy dark tan head. Nose of roasted malts, coffee, lactic and chocolate, roasted malts overwhelm and dominate the nose. Initial taste is deeply roasted malts, tangy lactic, coffee and cream. Mid palate of mollasses and dark chocolate. Finishing with the continuing roasted malts and balancing bitter hop finish. Medium body. Great palate duration. Good head retention and lacing of the glass. Definitely tasty but I think this one is overhyped. Deep roasted malts overwhelmed the nose and taste draining the complexity of the brew.

LeMunche (66) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2008 MMMM, so many flavors. Chocolate, cinnamon, cream , coffee, Coffee, and COFFEE. I’m not a huge coffee fan either, but I really enjoy this beer. The coffee is of course the backdrop of every sip, but it lets the other flavors shine as well. Breakfast stout also has a wonderful silky texture. Everyone should experience this beer at some point, and to taste it on anything but a clean palate is a sin.
