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.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 I think this is way over-rated. It is heavy on the coffee, but it isnít rich at all. You can drink this with a fork? Give me a break. Tastes oily and there is no head.

Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of coffee, oats, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor has a bit of a fruity sweetness at first with an intense coffee flavor. Deliciously thick, I might follow the lableís lead and go get a spoon.

Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is wonderful with scents of coffee, chocolate, maple surup pancakes, oatmeal, and fresh peanuts. Exquisite taste, freshly ground coffee is most prevelant with many notes of oatmeal, dark chocolate, and dark fruit. This truly is like smelling and eating a rich breakfast. Awesome brew one of the best founders Iíve ever tried.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2005 Special thanks to Landseer for this gem! Poured black with a dark brown head. Aroma was huge coffee and roasted notes with such a pleasantly sweet chocolate. The chocolate in the aroma didnít shine through right away, but once I found it I couldnít believe how glorious it was. Sweet, scrumptious, and just plain dominant. Has a lush malty body complimented with a perfectly sweet chocolate. Coffee, oatmeal, and vanilla complimented one of the best if not the best chocolate flavor I have experienced in a beer. This was an unbelievable experience. It was my perfect balance of flavors.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and what a way to begin! A Christmas gift from my son, I enjoyed this prior to the Christmas turkey. Huge coffee aroma, with an outstanding mouthfeel. Not as much oatmeal taste as chocolate and coffee. Superbly crafted. A new favorite stout.

Happy Birthday to Me! Thanks to "Antzman" for recommending this! Bottle pours very dark with a minimal light brown head. Has a chocolate coffee aroma and the coffee taste is suberb. Iím having it for breakfast right now! Very easy to drink!

Lovely port, fruit, chocolate aroma. Pours a very nice reddish-brown, thin head. Earthy and complex palate. Goes down easy. Sweetish wine flavours. Slight sour finish with alcohol.

Regular strong stout aroma. Even sounds good in the pour. Black with lasting thin islands of foam. Like drinking a cloud. Maybe the perfect stout flavour. Beautiful smooth. A touch of fruit. Additional coffee and sweet chocolate.

This is your typical looking stout, pours black with a tan head.Lots of chocolate and coffee flavors.This brew has some body on it.You almost want to use a knife and fork on it.
