Youve 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. Were 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.

Two 12oz bottles sampled at my Imperial Stout tasting. Pours a thick, oily, viscous black with a foamy, active tan head. Aroma is mostly coffee, from far away smells a little like a chocolate milkshake, other aroma of chocolate, caramel, and breakfast aromas like cinnamon toast. It’s sort of like you’re drinking a carbonated mocha which makes this a bizarre drinking experience compared with other imperial stouts and other coffee stouts. Dark coffee grounds, dark chocolate, caramel, chocolate syrup, coffee cake, sweet sugary icing, toast and again - chocolate milk shake. Very thick in the mouth and throat with a light coffee bitterness. The bottle says it all, "Double chocolate coffee oatmeal stout". That about covers everything. Not for the faint of heart, but also not as overwhelming as other Imperial Stouts.

Thanks Santa! Awesome! Very dark brown, with a rich pleasing aroma of chocolate and coffee bean. Moderate roasty malts are in the background. In the mouth, these 3 components merge successfully into a single fine, rich flavor. Full bodied,velvety, like a dessert in many ways. Easily one of the best coffee stouts Ive had.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2009 As advertised. Brimming with the flavors of oatmeal, cream, maple syrup, coffee, and dark chocolate. Pours like motor oil from the bottle with a trim amber/tan head. Boasts a hearty amoutn of hops as it warms. Wholesome and delicious. My all-time favorite label.

2006 bottle, review is from when it was fresh. Pours out completely black with a dark tan head that retains well and leaves excellent lacing. Smell is predominantly of coffee with some light chocolate aromas coming through as well. Taste is of coffee and chocolate as well. Starts out more roasty, then leads to a bit of chocolate in the middle and ends up with a roasty finish. Very smooth on the tongue, full bodied, but not cloying, carbonation is just a bit on the higher side. Drinkability is awesome, I love this beer and will be thoroughly enjoying the rest of them.

Had this past winter when I went home to Grand Rapids. Could say it was worth the drive. Pours black with a thick brown head. Every flavor in great balance , roasty coffee, cocoa, oats. Pleasant lingering of these at the finish, but clean. Would never even guess it is a RIS style brew.

twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 3, 2008
bottle. Pours a thick, dark, and scary opaque black. A vigorous pour yields a surprising 1" of foamy dark brown head. Aromas of, like the brewer’s description, heavy dark coffee. Unsweetened coffee and cocoa. Flavors of awesomesauce. Heavy flavors of coffee, bittersweet bakers chocolate, roasted malts, and some chewy oats and grains. Dominated by coffee and cocoa. Surprisingly little booze flavors. Superbly drinkable and enjoyable for such a big and thick brew. Palate is stunning- thick, but smooth and clean finishing. A brew that easily lives up to the hype it gets.

Pours opaque black with a tan head. Can taste the coffee with a slightly bitter chocolate aftertaste. Very good.
