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.

Served in a snifter. An aggressive pour of this viscous stout grudgingly yielded a small and short-lived head. The liquid itself is impermeable to light, and the small ring of dark-drown head is the only clue as to its real color. The aroma is of a fine, coffee-flavored dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is dense, syrupy thick, almost oily in nature and with a modest carbonation. The flavor has a rich roastiness with strong bitter-coffee notes. The long-lasting finish is dominated by a robust roasty bitterness.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2007 what else is needed? Bittersweet Chocolate... coffee and you can drink it in the morning...did I say chocolate?One of those beers that’s wonderful to pour - thick and inky, almost black, and unmissable strong black coffee aroma. The coffee defeinitely bears the roundness of pure dark chocolate. great mouthfeel and aftertaste. among the tops

thanks to pantanap and justincredible for the bottles. watching it pour out of the bottle it looks like oil. thick, dark, motor oil. the head is smallish and chocolate brown. the aroma is of dark chocolate and a little coffee. the mouthfeel is thick and rich...with the flavor of a mocha coffee with some malt. delicious

Thanks to RagallachMC, moejuck and Silphium for their generous bonus bottles. My cup runneth over. Pours black with very little head. Aroma of coffee, more coffee and roasted malt. Very rich, with coffee, sweet malts and a little chocolate. Full body and chewy taste. IMO, not an over-rated beer.

Bottle, 8.3%. Fresh coffee aroma. Pours thick and very black. Small dark brown head. Nice, creamy coffee flavour, and the same in the late aftertaste. Very late, quite distinct barley bitterness.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2007
(sampled at the Düsseldorf RB gathering)Black coloured with a short brown layer. Thick roasted grains and rice aroma with coffee and liquorice. Light sweet flavour with roasted bitterness, full to medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Fat and oily chocolate-like taste with roasted grains; dry-ish, moderately bitter finish with notes of coffee and chocolate in the aftertaste. Well rounded brew.
