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.

Trade from Styles,a damn fine trade at that.dark,dark brew with a fine bubbly lacing.Aroma is like coffee that has ben sitting on the warmer for a day or two.After another sniff I start to get a well rounded,like my girlfriend,blend of dark chocolate,molasses and coffee.This thing is awesome.Ever walk into a truffle shop and ask for a expresso truffle??? Do so and this is what you might come up with,if youíre lucky.

This dark java brew is excellent. The coffee aroma is very prominent. Yet, you can still taste the chocolate.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2005 Pours dark with a brown/reddish hued head. Smells of roasty, toasty oats and dry chocolate. The taste is phenominal. Super deep in chocolate, but also a hint of coffee and caramel. Amazing beer.

Brown with some head and small spots of lace. Coffee and chocolate aromas with bitter roast and smoke. Coffee grounds in the flavor with cocoa and roasted malts. Bitter hops. Nice.

Poured a dark, dark black with a large, 4-finger brown head. I could smell the chocolate once I popped the cap off. Other aromas of coffee, oatmeal, smoke, tobacco, and subtle dark cherries. Tastes of roasted, espresso, chocolate, and licorice. Finishes dry with a bitter bite. Thanks to goldtwins for trading me this one.

Near headless with an opaque body. Mildly viscous. Nose of coffee and ashtray. Very bitter cocoa, coffee and smoked malt. Very good. Chalky. 8.3 ABV tingles the tonsils. Thanks Andre

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 This beer is rich and tasty...wish I could drink it for breakfast every day! Black as night and thick tan lace. Big notes of roasted coffee and chocolate, canít pick up any oatmeal though through all the coffee. Huge lingering finish for minutes. Cheers!!

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2008 Very nice! A good hearty beer with a great solid coffee base supporting chocolate overtones and a full oatmeal body. This is one of the best stouts iíve ever had. Go forth and STOUT. - Rerate Bottled and poured into an English pint glass. This is one of my favorites and I am just now rating it. I have not had one in about two years. FBS pours dark brown, nearly black. The head is small but persistent. It smells of coffee, oatmeal and other grains, all with a touch of alcohol that adds a bit of complexity. I can also smell my glass which gives an unpleasant metallic aroma. This is not from the beer though so I will not hold it against the rating. The taste is both bitter and sweet compliments of decent coffee flavors and chocolate goodness. The grains add thickness and again, the alcohol, just barely detectable, adds complexity. As mentioned, the body is medium-to-heavy in thickness. The finish is mostly bitter coffee. If you are not a coffee fan then I do not think you will like this beer.
