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 black with a nice tan head. Chocolate and dark coffee smells dominate. There are several complex flavors going on in this beer. Upfront coffee and oatmeal flavors lead to a nice chocolate finish. Very nice! Heavy mouthfeel with a silk component. Overall a tasty beer.

Aroma: Complex aroma of roasted grain, coffee, and light cocoa. Appearance: Jet black with low head retention, brown foam. Flavor: Intense roastiness, plays between the coffee and roasted barley. No hop to speak of, but the complexity of roasted grain, burnt coffee and chocolate make this very interesting. Palate: Iíve never had a beer this smooth. Truly like a meal in a glass, silky smooth, huge body from the oats addition. Luscious and silky. Overall: Excellent stout. Big, tasty beer with a very smooth body. And I hate coffee in beer, but this is an exception.

Tessic (926) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2007
This stout poured a deep black colour with a thick deep brown creamy head. To the nose there was scents of burnt beans, caramel, coffee, earthy notes and a l.ittle cocoa. First sip was smooth and biting all at once. Flavours of coffee, cocoa and cream were prodominant at first with the burnt malt flavour following. Wasnít as much cocoa as I would have liked, but still very rich Palate has a little hop to it just enough for a slightly bitter finish.

AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Midnight black with a frothy mocha head. Pours thick in the glass with sticky lacing throughout the drink. Nose is excellent. Fresh brewed espresso and kona coffee with hints of dark bakers chocolate. Nose is definitely this brews best attribute. Full bodied and a bit oily on the tongue. Initial bitterness fades slightly during the drink, but most coffee drinkers would agree that coffee smells better then it tastes. Still, a very good beer.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2007
12oz bottle. Aroma is huge and all coffee and a slight chocolate note there. Average sized creamy brown head that mostly lasted and left ok lace. Pitch black hue. Flavor is espresso and dark chocolate. Palate is oily flat with a nice short finish. I didnít really like the kb version of this but this is a new batch and itís fantastic. I think it actually woke me up. Would recommend highly.

ElDuderino (184) - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle, bought at Wine Gallery in Brookline, MA 10-11-07. Pours dark as the night with a thick heavy body. Very thin deep chocolate colored head that leave little lacing behind. The nose is full of strong Sumatra coffee, like a two day old pot that has been kept hot the whole time. Strong soak on the tongue, but very little alcohol burn, flavors of coffee, chocolate, oats (or bran) and wheat sink deep into the pallate. Very dry finish, little caramel sugar and crisp yeasty pop. Delicious!

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2008 yum. fantastic brew. dark black pour, and fantastic aroma of coffee and chocolate. creamy, but not chewing it down creamy. still very good balance though. the only way this could be better if it was aged in bourbon barrels ;)

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2012 Black with big, creamy, brown head / Big nose of cigar box, coffee, and chocolate / Medium to full body, chewy and dry, some acidity and lively carbonation, with good balance and lightly bitter finish / Flavors of cigar box, bittersweet chocolate, dark roast coffee, oatmeal, and root beer / Not a complete monster, but rich and dry.

Iíve been waiting a long time to try this. Pours a black color with a brown head. Aroma is strong of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, dark fruits, and some caramel malts. Pretty strong with the coffee and roasted malt flavors with dark chocolate, molasses, dark fruits, and caramel malts behind it. Has a dry and bitter finish that covers up the alcohol. Quite an amazing brew.
