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.

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2005 Murky very dark brown. Very coffeeish aroma, like cold-ass Tim Hortonís. Blech. You go into a good coffee bean shop, something like Casa Acoreana in Kensington Market. You smell the beans, itís wonderful. Nothing at all like this beer. Massive coffee flavour, very green and vegetal. Hint of chocolate. Big and thick, but simple. The coffee bludgeons everything with its vegetal harshness. Probably the most overrated beer Iíve ever had.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2005
12 oz bottle. Dark black, tending toward purple. Thin tan head. Massive aroma of coffee overlies an almost spicy oatmealy character. Oily texture apparent in the glass. Going down is like drinking silk with a complex coffee, chocolate, cocoa, with the faintest touch of soy on the finish. Hard to describe the complexity in words. Nice roasted finish is almost charcoal flavoured in intensity. An absolutely fantastic brew.

MIBRomeo (2492) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2005
pours a rich black color w/ a thick brown cream of wheat looking head that laces very well. Smells good... aroma is a big roasted malt w/ some light hop and a nice roasted coffee a little bit of bittersweet chocolate and maybe even some marshmellow. palate is a big heavy body very creamy thick and num. The flavor is of a nice roasted malt and lots of it and a good roasted coffee finish and even a touch of bitterness the aftertaste is a little like burnt toast. Overall a damn good brew.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2006 Much thicker pour than expected. Khaki brown colored head fizzling down on the otherwise impenetrable black beer. I pick up the snifter and I swear itís never felt heavier. Aroma is roasted malts, burnt rye bread and strong roasted coffee. Some chocolate chips wafts jump out as well. Flavor is brown sugar oatmeal, bitter mocha java, cocoa puffs and burnt toast. Very heavy on the palate, finishing like you just took a lick from a stick of margarine. Strong coffee bitterness in the aftertaste. Oh, if I could only brew this each morning before leaving home for work.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Poured black with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and coffee. Flavor follows suit with a rich thick chocolate flavor and a sweetened coffee with a bit of roasty bitterness. Nice thick mouthfeel..

05.07.05 12oz bottle at Heavyweight open house. Again, I have no idea who to thank for this gem of a beer. Thick, black, coating, unctuous on the pour. Yum! Aromas and flavors are nearly identical in this rich brew. Burnt marshmallow, thick old coffee, thick young coffee, thick coffee with cream, thick coffee with cream and burnt marshmallow. Creamy throughout. Soft body. Glam. Bitter finish clears up the oily and coating palate. Rad beer, itís no wonder itís rated so highly (4.23 average at time of my rating). Thanks to whoever shared this wonder!

aracauna (2994) - Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2005
Oh, yeah. I was jonesing for a good stout and this delivered. Definitely the darkest stout Iíve had in a while. The viscosity of the brew is evident from the first pour. It pours oily and seems to be flat until the bubbles gradually make it to the top and form a thin, consistent, brown head. The aroma is very roasty, with a bit of bitter black chocolate in with the coffee. The flavor is very reminiscent of coffee and thereís a bit of charcoal in there as well. Itís surprisingly dry considering the thickness. Loved it.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - MAY 12, 2005
Pours black with a small brown head. Big coffee aroma. Taste is black coffee with hints of chocolate trying to sneak through. Very bitter, almost too much. If the coffee was toned down a bit and the chocolate came out a little more this beer would be awesome. Still very enjoyable.

Ughsmash (7003) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2005 12 oz bottle. This one poured a most certain black with light wisps and a ring of medium-brown head. Heavily-roasted aroma of rich milk and dark chocolates and an awesome fresh coffee presence. Both the roasted coffee and chocolate were ever-present on the tastebuds, and there was a bit of nutmeg around the edges. Mouthfeel was extra smooth and coating, and the alcohol was very well hidden. Finish was long and full of burnt chocolate and espresso malts, with an accompanying bitterness. Went down extra smoothly. Great brew!
