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. Aroma strong of coffee, quite roasted coffee, some sweet alcohol, and some sort of sweet fruit, maybe black currant? Flavor again has that roasted coffee, some hop bitterness, but mostly bitterness from a malt that becomes increasingly charred although not overbearingly so for the most part. Didn’t really get the creamy, velvety feel others did as all that charred malt finished on the dry side with a strong but particularly noteworthy body. Very nice, but not wowing after that awesome coffee aroma.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle thanks to mibirder. Ultra thick pour. Large rocky, dark brown head that leaves good lacing. Body is black as sin. Aroma is strong coffee, oatmeall, some vanilla and light chocolate. Taste is strong coffee, and finishes with bitterness from chocolate, and some oatmeal, as well as light tobbaco. Alcohol is well hidden. Creamy mouthfeel, light bubbles.

Bottle. Pours an almost black/brown, nice brown head. Aroma is subdued chocolate and coffee. Flavor hits you over the head with bitter chocolate and bitter, roasted coffee, but not bitter in a bad way. Malty and decadent. If your a coffee and chocolate lover, this ones for you.

Thanks to KingpinIPA for this beer. Aroma of roasted coffee and black olives. Tastes of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Finishes a bit dry with a burnt coffee aftertaste. A reallt nice stout that is not too sweet and has a great mouthfeel. Would get again.

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 I’ve 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.
