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.

Bottle ( thanks Eric) Deep dark, light-defying black in the glass... Fine pored, sticky mocha cap lushious coffee-cocoa fruity aromas... Thick body,... rich, viscous cerial spine,... decadent chocotate-mocha character. Bilious amouts of everything an oatmeal- coffee-cocoa stout should be and more. This makes breakfast a real meal!

Bottle. Pours a dark black with a creamy tan head. The pour is slow and very thick. Looks amazing in my glass. Aroma is fresh ground coffee, toffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Flavor is remarkable! Full of coffee and chocolate. The coffee makes it bitter while the chocolate sweetens it out. Done very nicely! This could easily be had for breakfast as a cold coffee drink from a nice coffee shop. This beer is amazing!

Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Appearance: Pours a thick opaque black with a creamy tan head. Smell: The aroma is packed with coffee chocolate nuts toffee and many more roasted malt scents. Taste: Take a glass and fill if half full with rich melted milk chocolate, and fill the rest up with a gourmet coffee and add a healthy serving of whole cream. mmm. Oh there is a shot of booze in it too. That is the best I can describe the creamy chocolate sensational experience. Mouthfeel: Sheer silky velvety smooth cream, has a big feel to it but everything about this beer is extremely approachable, and divinely pleasant. Drinkability: Give me case of this stuff. You would never know its 8.30% ABV it is so easy! Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

(Bottle from my secret santa MIBRomeo) The bottle arrived from the US today and was only a bit more than half full. When I gently twisted the cap it blew open with a loud BANG. It could have taken an eye out... OK maybe not, but it poured pitch black with a big frothy, brown head. Big flavors of coffe and dark rich chocolate. Also hints of abricot, wood and earth. Full bodied. Long finish with coffee and caramel flavors. Very nice... glad the rest of the bottle was still good. Thanks MIBRomeo.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2006 Bottle from Rob Halford (illinismitty) Thanks man! Pours out a dark brown color, with a tan head. Smell is malty, cofee, chocolate, sweet oatmeal, greatness. This smells better than it tastes probably. Awesome beer. Taste is sweet, cofee, malts, chocolate. Very sweet, very nice for a night cap. Could drink this for breakfast probably, but theres no way I could make myself drink beer in the morning after the drinking that has gone on tongiht. Sean, if you want to send me some more of this, please feel free. Awesome shit man, would love some more samples.

TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Thanks to hopdog for sharing this brew on my wants list. Pours a dark, dark brown with slight red when held to the light. Creamy dark tan head that laced and sustained. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and toasty malts. Flavor of chocolate, cocoa, light coffee. This one was a bit aged and the flavors have seemed to mellowed out and blended a bit.

Mmmmm good. Smells like fresh brewed coffee, chocolate and caramel. Flavors are big and bold, like the perfect cup of coffee. Silky smooth, and really good.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2006 via trade with OhioDad - Pours black with a faint tan head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is big time coffee and some chocolate. The flavor is mostly coffee with some residual sweetness. Hop bitterness really comes through. A medium to full bodied beer. A very good beer. Thanks Scott.

One of those beers thatís exciting to pour - thick and inky, just barely not black, and unmissable strong black coffee aroma. The coffee defeinitely bears the roundness of pure dark chocolate. In fact, I did have this for breakfast, at 10:44 am on a saturday, with no solid accompaniment, and itís a quite stolid lumberjack treat. Itís chock full o flavor - deep grounds, hazelnuts, bitter chocolate, logs, bark, and leaves. Earthy beer. Thick palate, like the boy on the label, I do almost want a utensil to eat this beer. It leaves a little pretty lace, although I got barely any dark brown head, contrary to the description, itís still a beatiful thing to behold.
