COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

At first this beer hesitates to be poured out of the bottle. But then pours a beautiful dark brown with a thick brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, oatmeal, vanilla and maple syrup. Various coffees and chocolates in the taste. Too hard for me to analyze. Palate rocks. This sweet stout is priced well and just wonderful

Mad propts to MikeMac for the Trade: Smell was quite different, almost milky. Pours nice and pretty.. not quite as thick as I tought it would be. The taste is coffee to the 20th degree. I have had a lot of coffee brews, but none on this level.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2006 Thanks to Ron Bush for this gem. Pours a pitch black color with a small brownish beige head lacing. Aroma is FRESH coffee beans and a hint of dark rich chocolate. Flavor is a coffee lover’s delight. Fresh roasted coffee taste with dark rich chocolate flavor. Leaves a coffee aftertaste along with malt and chocolate. Doesnt get much better than this.

I was lucky enough to be able to try this. Coffee, coffee and did I mention coffee? This is one thick jet black treat. The coffee subsides with bittersweet chocolate with almost no alcohol taste. Leaves you licking your lips for the sweetness. If you can get this, this is one to try for a sweet stout!

(12.29.05) 12 oz brown bottle purchased from DiCarlo’s, Mundelein, IL. 8.3% ABV. Black hued double chocolate, coffee, oatmeal stout with small diminishing tan head. No discernable carbonation. Intense coffee aroma. Medium-to-full bodied that starts with light sweet malt and coffee, bitter chocolate, and roasted malt flavors. Finishes with lingering black coffee bitterness. Smooth, delicious, and satisfying complex flavors, like a good cup of expresso.

pours like 40 weight and looks like it too. Very thick, foamy, tan head. Lots of lace. Nose is what label says. Very full bodied. Rich, almost totally bitter, but then goes bittersweet. Long, long finish that becomes warming. Leave sweetness on lips. Opaque. had a bottle tonight at Bodega downtown La Crosse

Dark dank midnight black hole black. Head is a beautiful creamy dark brown. Yup, sure is opaque. Aroma is awesome simply put. Smells like breakfast. Coffee and dark roast scream to the forefront, tantalizing the senses. There is also a nice nutty dry coccoa, almost a hint of hazlenut in the aroma as well. Coffee again grabs you as you take the first sip. This is not a bitter acidic coffee note, it is done wonderfully. Also ever present is a great taste of deep dark malts, with some oatmeal hiding behind them. Dry coccoa powder and smoke come into the mix, and a hint of anise as well. Finish is huge and ever lasting. I could literally taste this beer 5 minutes after a sip, not that you should wait that long between sips. The finish is dry Kona coffee,somewhat earthen. Wonderfully textured. Was expecting some more sweetness, and this beer could have used it in some places, but nonetheless, this is a top 50 that lives up to the hype.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 I think this is way over-rated. It is heavy on the coffee, but it isn’t rich at all. You can drink this with a fork? Give me a break. Tastes oily and there is no head.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2006
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 lable’s 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 I’ve ever tried.
