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.

Pours black with very little head. Lots of roasted coffee on the nose with a hint of booze to boot. Coffee flavor that has hints of chocolate and some syrupy sweetness. Long lasting finish and a bit cloying.

bierkoning (10864) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2008
Bottle. Almost black, opague. Dark chocolate and coffee in the abundant aroma. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Dark roasted, creamy flavor with pepper, licorice, dark chocolate and coffee. Complex, delicious and overloaded with flavors and aromas.

pepsican (1488) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Pours black with a thin dark tan head. Aroma of coffee and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is coffee up front, but chocolate, maple syrup, oatmeal, malt, and smoke round this out nicely. Nothing is overdone though, and it is indeed just about everything I love about breakfast packed into a bottle. Little carbonation, little trace of the alcohol. Very well done!

UPDATE! R U JOKIN OR WAT PEPSICAN? Thick, harshly bitter, not really picking up on much of what I picked up on for the original rate. Still looks pretty, smells decent, but this is just too much for me. Original rating was 4.1.

IEBAILI (126) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Pours black and viscous with a huge brown head that fades to a thin layer but leaaves lots of heavy lacing. Smell is almost all coffee, strong but simple. Somewhere in there is a little chocolate. Texture is very lush, rich and smooth with a long creamy finish. Flavor is much better than aroma, coffee is strong but does not overpower the chocolate, fig/ date, even a bit of cherry/ berry. A very good breakfast indeed.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 Pours black with a mocha head. Aroma of coffee grounds, chocolate and burnt roasted malt with a touch of dried fruit. Taste is coffee, bitter chocolate and a bit of dark fruit. This gets more bitter and sweet as it warms. # 400!!

b33r (696) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2012 Black color with medium brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is sweet and roasty with coffee notes. Flavor has strong coffee, chocolate and sweet malts. A little spicy with some alcohol tingle. Good overall, somewhat complex but not over-done.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Draft at Capone’s. Poured black with a light tan head which lingered for a while. Aroma is strong roasted coffee. Taste is of roasted coffee and baker’s chocolate. The alcohol is hidden very well. Nice body, nice dry finish. Happy.

TyRip (40) - Canton, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Tasted on draft today. This beer is black, with a small, quickly diminishing head. It smells like an espresso, with some hops and some interesting spice thrown in. It has a thick but not oily mouthfeel. There are so many great flavors in this beer. The description never stops talking about coffee, and it’s there, but with the amount of alcohol and perfect hopping, it all just melds together into the most perfect, robust stout I have had the pleasure to drink.

black with a nice tan head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma of coffee and some fruitiness. full bodied with a creamy oily mouth feel. Flavor extremely balanced. Coffee dominates the palate. Alcohol is not as present as I would have thought. One of my favorite imperial stouts.

(Bottle) Pours an inky black color. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste includes copious amounts of dark chocolate, coffee, and burnt caramel. Creamy, full mouthfeel and low carbonation. Didn’t pick up very much oat in this, but an excellent beer nevertheless.
