COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Youíve 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. Weíre 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 a two finger, light brown head that slowly fades to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Totally black color. Light carbonation and very heavy bodied (similar to 80W oil). Strong coffee nose. Starts with bitter chocolate/burnt coffee flavor, hops and high ABV are not noticeable. Not a bad stout but could be a touch sweeter. $3.95 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Pours a dark black brown opaque inky liquid with a very dark head that resolves into a few bubbles quickly. Nose is coffee and rich chocolate bitters. Taste is a rich melange of chocolate, malt, coffee roastedness and a little sweetness. Finishes warmly and smoothly with just the right kind of bitters. Tasty!

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2007 Thanks a million to Styles. Pours a beautiful rich black color with a very thick head. The chocolate and coffee smells are very inviting. Palate was smooth and creamy with the tastes of chocolate and coffee that latsed to the finish.

bottle at the Hampton tasting - mmm... coffee. Pours thick and black with a long lasting, tan head. It smells strongly of roast malts and of course... coffee. It tastes much the same. As others have said, you better like coffee. Now I donít like cold or iced coffee, but I liked this beer a lot, so donít worry. Full bodied and delicious with a pleasant finish, this is an excellent beer. I really thought it would be considered an imperial stout given how heavy it is, but no matter.

This beer poured dark as oil. Thick, good dark tawny head. Unbelievable coffee in the taste and smell. If you donít like coffee, stay away, otherwise it is delicious. Both thick and smooth, it is very sweet but not overdone.

Great beer! Could use a thicker body, but then, Mona Lisa is ugly, but makes a great work of art!

Bottle. Thanks to Brennan from Kahnís for the bottle. Aroma is of Strong coffee, Oatmeal and Chocolates. Just as advertised. Small redish tan head that lingers for quite some time. The darkest bee I have ever had. Solid black pour. WOW! What a flavor. First off you get very intense dark roasted coffee. Then you taste the smooth creamy chocolates. Than finally you finish off with a nice bitter oatmeal aftertaste. Thick? I donít know wether to drink it or use a spoon and eat it like....well like breakfast. Thanks again Brennan!

12 oz. Bottle. 2 years old Absolutely every sip of this Amazing brew came on strong with all flavors of Oatmeal, Coffee, and Chocolate as promised. Just like the westie 8 each flavor melts in on your tongue as it fades away into the next flavor. Thanks Jason for this rare bottle. I will continue to dream of it until I can get some more

12 oz. bottle into Duvel tulip, once again thanks to cquiroga, my beer pimp, summer 2005. Dope. First of all, itís beautiful: opaque black as expected; head is dark reddish tan and fizzy, producing spotty lace of uniform bubble size. Racing is amazing, deep and elegant. The flavors and smells blended sweetness with dry earthiness, a great counterpoint of two usually distinct stoutish qualities. Dry baking cocoa melds with creamy milk chocolate and slightly burnt coffee roast in the nose. The flavor begins as melted smooth dark chocolate, coating the mouth with semi-sweet opulence, then belying sticky coffee character which comes on full-bore at the beginning of the finish. Right before the finish, a slight acidity tingles on the sides of the mouth. Long after the swallow a slight roasty tang emerges. Delicious beer.
