Youíve 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. Weíre 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.

Had to pick up a bottle in Brussels, and took it to England, and back to Amsterdam, together with a whole bunch of other stouts, that was a heavy bag to travel with. Anyway, muchos gracias brad. I love to poor a decent strong stout. The black, syrup-ish liquid, ending with a dark brown head, every time again, why is there a lack of these kinds of beers in Europe? Just beautiful, so was this one. Further more, not very much in the nose here, but Iím a little bit sick, could that be it? the taste is overwhelming, the coffee stays subtle. Actually, this is a subtle beer. subtle chocolate, subtle bitterness. Itís always hard for me to decide whether I like the arrogant unbalanced super stout above the subtile well done brews. However, this beer gives me a long moment of enjoyment, and with this kind of brews, in my opinion, the brewer deserves more respect then with a (often lovely) beer where a brewer finishes off with just an extra two bags of hops.

Actually drank this for breakfast yesterday. It set a certain tone for the whole day, I think. Bottle pours inky jet black with a dark brown head. Awesome nose, dark chocolate and strong black coffee, also something burnt in there, like cooled coals after a campfire, and now itís the morning and whaddyaknow, time for breakfast. Flavor starts with a slight sourness like pumpernickel, easing into a long, slow, roasted coffee bitterness, where the campfire smoke melds with perfectly reasonable hops. Oily, thick but smooth, quite dry mouthfeel. Bitter, toasty aftertaste. Top of the morning.

MIld sweet dark malt smell with a brown head. Solid coffee flavor with a moderate body to back it. Nice bitter coffee finish. Just enough sweetness to balance it all. Very good.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle courtesy of unclejedi. Pours a deep opaque black with a 2 finger chocolate brown head that fades into a thin top layer. Nice lacing. Nose is roasted coffee beans, cocoa and bakers chocolate. Palate is a lot like it smells - chocolaty coffee but with a touch of oatmeal at the end. Slight bitter finish. Creamy mouth feel. A great stout. Right up there with my favorites of the style.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Bottle at shack of party banter dance-off. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, fruity, cigars, good quality coffee. Taste however is too intence and really difficult to swallow as it goes on. A bit upsetting as the aroma was quite acceptable.

Deep black with a thin tan head. Rich, sweet toasted malt aroma, with dark fruits and molasses. Taste is also very rich and malty, with a lot of molasses flavor as well as big coffee and chocolate notes. Lingering sweet and bitter malt taste. A rich, delicious imperial stout.

Nate (3800) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Bottle courtesy of santoslhalper. Great nose to this one. Rich, smoky, chocolate and coffee. Vanilla and molasses, light Tootsie Roll. Mild acidity with alcohol vapors, and a sour tang. Very nice. A glass of Stygian darkness with chocolately thin lacing head. Full oily body with medium carbonation, liquid velvet. Starts rich and chocolatey, with smoky toasted malt, vinuous acidity, molasses and coffee, burnt smoky acidity. Tootsie Rolls and vanilla. Leaves a nutty burnt bitter chalkyness on the tongue, with a bit of alcoholic warming and sweet creme de cafe finish. Light smoky coffee after with perfect balance of bitterness and lingering sweetness. This is a really nice impy stout.
