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.

Good thing I LOVE coffee. Pours a motor oily thick black with a light brown head. Incredibly beautiful aroma of potting soil, roasty coffee and piney US hops. Taste has big notes of coffee and coffee, chocolate, earthiness, roasted malt, hops, some dark fruit and rum; awesome. Very full, round and creamy on the palate; seriously - the body on this beer HAS to be the silkiest thing on the planet. The great roastyness lingers forever. I have had this beer on four separate occasions over the past couple years; (full bottles) it never ceases to amaze. Perfection.

Pitch black with a small brown head. Medium strengh sweet and smokey smells of cigar/tobacco with a whiff of boozyness. Med. body and lightly carbed. Great taste of blackened malts and smokey sweet tobacco same as the smell. Has a nicely dry, bitter taste to finish. love it! 8405

Thanks to ogglethorp for this little gem. I really can’t imagine a beer having a better aroma. Big bitter sweet chocolate and roasted coffee. Flavor is much the same, great little snap of hoppy goodness on the finish. Nice creamy mouthfeel with a big chuncky texture. What a BEER!

An amazing gift from the cellar of Chris Lively at Ebenezer’s, Lovell, Maine. Visit him - now. Opaque black, fluffy brown head that laces fairly well and finishes in a scum. There is slight coffee and some distinctive malt sweetness in the nose, but what I perceived more than anything is a wonderfully briney, black olive cure aroma. In this way there is a slight iron presence - I actually prefer it. This fades slightly in the taste, giving way to coffee and chocolate overtones above a really solid roasted malt core. Nicely bitter finish, thickly sticks to the palate. Exceptionally creamy and thick mouthfeel - best aspect of the beer is its supreme richness.

12 oz. bottle. Pours an oily viscous opaque black with a thin, brown head that quickly dissipates to a small rim with little lacing. Big nose of coffee and roasted malt. That’s pretty much it. Flavor is roasted and chocolate malts with fruity and sweet notes at the end. The finish is bitter, well into the after, but not over the top. This is balanced-ish, a touch high on roast that stunts the ability for the dark fruits to shine through. Tasty stout, though.

On tap at Capone’s pours jet black into the snifter with an inch of fluffy dark tan head. Scents of chocolate, espresso and malt dominated the smell. The first sip was a rush of robust flavors including strong coffee, roasted barley and chocolate cake. A very flavorful, drinkable imperial stout. Excellent with dessert.

Tap: Mainly a coffe taste, but hints of chocolate make this a great starter for the morning!!!!:)J/K The picture on the bottle can sum this one up. Chocolate and coffee taste. Very highly recommended to everyone.

Poured into a snifter. Completely pitch black, light has no effect on this liquid. Head is modest in size, but very sticky. Smells like one of those sweetened iced coffees, with a nice roastiness but plenty of sweetness. The coffee flavor in this beer is absolutely epic. Dry espresso smacks the palate and lingers for minutes after the swallow. Unsweetened chocolate makes an appearance as well. It’s not overly bitter or astringent like some lesser American double stouts. Mouthfeel is so rich you can practically chew it. Light carbonation really lets the massiveness of this beer make itself known. The finish is long and dry, making you really want more with every sip. Excellent beer, can’t wait to compare with the KBS.

Pours black as the night from the bottle with a thin dark brown head that dissipates quickly. Smells like coffee grounds and dark chocolate to me. Tastes like the blackest coffee you ever had, with a hint of chocolate. Tastes much better than it smells as far as the coffee goes. Palate is good, not too thick at all, nice carbonation. Not bad, as for a coffee flavored stout though, I’d go with Speedway anyday over this.
