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.

Masterful combination of coffee and chocolate in this stout, with the oatmeal making its appearance at well. Very smooth and not disapointing. Thanks vvclark for the bonus delivery after our regular trade! Baby picture on bottle is a flash of brilliant subtle humour. This could be a favorite regular beer of mine.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Completely pitch-black and opaque with a brownish head. Odd - but not unpleasant - vinous nose. Flavours are very vinous too, delicate roasted malt - and lots of it - with dried fruits as well. Pronounced coffee notes. Ends somewhat ashy. Nice indeed. 170705

On tap at RBSG (Thanks P-Tor44, ZachDeisel, and company). I still canít believe they brought a freakin keg of this. Incredibly dark pour, deep brown head, frothy and long lasting. Big time coffee aroma, pleasant, if somewhat one-dimensional. A touch of chocolate but the coffee definitely dominates. Flavor is heavy coffee, quite roasty as well, but itís a bit much. Full bodied, palate is overly dry, though. Overall, a very nice beer, maybe a touch overrated, but Iím still looking forward to trying the bottle I just snagged up in a trade.

Never had anything like this for breakfast before. Poured like motor oil into my cup wafting of chocolate and coffee! Nice head and lacing throughout the experience. Full-bodied, but not overpowering, flavors of the aforementioned coffee and chocolate as well as malt. There is also a taste of alcohol. I thoroughly enjoyed this one! Well done.

Dark brown color with a huge light brown head. Aroma is double chocolate fudge. Flavor is rich sweet dark chocolate, a hint of coffee and a lightly bitter nutty finish. Palate is rich, smooth and creamy.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Pailhead as part of a recent trade. poured into my stemmed snifter from Johnís, first aroma is of milk chocolate, followed by a whiff of coffee. appearance is black as night with a tan head settling down to generous lace. flavor is of bittersweet milk chocolate, coffee and a hint of toffee. as it warms, a creamy smoothness becomes more apparent. Yummy! Thanks Kevin

This is a great beer! Aroma is full of lactose, dark bitter chocolate, caramel, and even some coffee. Thick, oily dark body with a dark tan head. The coffee abounds in the well-balanced flavor. A heavy beer, indeed...the commercial description is entirely right. Nutty roastiness in the finish. Remains with you like a nice morsel of bitter chocolate.

Aroma of roasted coffee, and lots, darkest brown, tiny cappuccino head. Flavour is full roast coffee, medium bodied, bitter, wonderful! This was especially nice to have from the mini-keg, Thanks to the generous Founders employees!
