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.

From a twist cap stubby brown bottle with no bottled/freshness date, sampled at cellar temperature. Made a good appearance, poured a thick, deep coffee black with a tan soapy head that settled into a semi-sticky, thin foamy lacing, moderate carbonation. Had a big roasted malty nose, coffee and chocolate with hints of sweet oatmeal. A textured, creamy smooth full bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Sweet oatmeal and roasted malty taste, big hits of morning coffee, chocolate and caramelized sugar, milky flavor, a herbal hoppiness, a subtle alcohol warmth and a dryish coffee and sweet roasted malt finish with the maltiness lingering in the palate. An excellent double stout, a must try, tasty and balanced.

After having Peche Mortel I always get excited to try new coffee beers. Thanks to px2grafx for trading me this. Poured a dark but not quite motor oil dark body with a huge head. I thought I was pouring a saison. It was pretty frustrating waiting for the head to die down before I could finally drink this. Aroma had coffee, oats, and a hint of chocolate. The aroma wasn’t nearly as assertive as the flavors. This thing is loaded with coffee. Unfortunately, it wasn’t like the coffee used in Peche Mortel. It wasn’t like what’s in Speedway. Those coffee flavors are good, this is like adding Folger’s (generic, bland, etc) Coffee to a beer. The coffee flavoring added a light bitterness. The mouthfeel was also a little bit too crisp for my liking, it felt overcarbonated. It looks like WWS has some competition for being the most overrated beer in the top 50... at least IMO.

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 don’t like cold or iced coffee, but I liked this beer a lot, so don’t 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 don’t 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!
