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.

Bottle: pours a thick dark black with a quick fading tan head, I could smell the coffee aroma as I was pouring this, also has a burnt, chocolatey aroma, taste is strong on coffee and roasted malt. I don’t like this one as much as the Expedition Stout but it is damn good.

On tap at Brixie’s, Brookfield IL. Wow-- I wasn’t expecting that coffee flavor. Right up front-- no doubt about it. I don’t drink coffee, but like coffee flavored food, so this was right up my alley. I was glad that there was a strong coffee taste without any noticable astringency or bitterness. Very smooth indeed. What a treat to have on tap in my hometown!

This is an excellent chocolate/coffe/oatmeal combo stout. It is a like a sweet stout / imperial stout combined into one. VERY smooth with a robust coffe flavor and aftertaste. Indeed a hearty brew not to be drank during the Hot months ( for it will wick the water right out of you !) This is made for a cold winters night by a roaring fire.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2009 12 oz bottle thanks to AdamB84 from BA site. This brew pours thick like molasses and oh so dark! No head except for a very thin tan line around the glass. A lovely aroma of roasted malt and coffee with some chocolate and alcohol. Taste is so wonderful! Coffee, oatmeal and chocolate with some roasty and burnt tastes. Medium body with dry aftertaste. Liked this better than it’s Kentucky Bourbon brethren. Goes to top three of my favorite Imp stouts, maybe best I’ve had.

A fantastic brew from founders - full of explosive flavor that will keep you coming back for more. Delicious chocolate and java notes, and a very well-bodied brew. Goes down smooth and finishes with a small bitter kick.

Bottle. Pours oily black. Barely makes a sound. Thick creamy head. Biggest coffee presence of any of any imp stout I’ve tried. Amazing brew.

Had this on tap @ Barley’s Smokehouse as a very limited edition guest tap. Was having a few with my roommate Scott. Nose of alcohol, brown sugar, coffee, chocolate and flowers. The brew is black. The mostly lasting frothy/creamy brown head leaves light lace. The front is roasted coffee, light acidity and some alcohol warmth in the fruity middle, and a long roasted floral finish follows. The full body is soft and creamy with a dry feel to the finish.

Deep black pour, thin dark tan head. Aroma is mostly espresso with some burnt malt mixed in. Flavor is heavy coffee; they tote this brew as a double chocolate coffee oatmeal stout, but I’d bill it as a triple coffee stout with hints of chocolate and oatmeal, and the oatmeal hints were hard to find. That being said, if you like dark coffee, this is a winner. Very smooth on the palate with a ’sweet and bitter’ aftertaste...very appealing. Make sure to let this one warm a bit before consumption!

bottle from buckybeer: pours completely black with a huge cark cocoa head. aroma is bitter cocoa powder and some espresso and a slight nuttiness. flavour is milk chocolate and cocoa, espresso and some nutty oatness. a nice mix of biter and sweet with a slick start to the palate the a chewy finish.
