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.

Pours thick and black that eventually forms into a good sized medium tan head that held together pretty well. Smell is the best I have sented in a breakfast stout yet. Taste is jsut about there with the smell, very freaking good. This is one of the best beers i’ve tried yet.

This beer is truly outstanding. It is somewhat light in flavor and flavored with coffee and smokiness. Delicious. Appearance is an inky dark with a fairly minimal dark head. Aroma is of coffee. Coffee notes permeate the taste along with a taste reminiscent of a Rauschbier. This beer feels good in the mouth and is wonderfully drinkable.

12 oz bottle. This is Espresso beer! I don’t know what else to say... it looks like coffee, smells like coffee and tastes like coffee. Therefore, it must be coffee. It drinks very smooth and has no hint of alcohol. The only negative is an odd bitter coffee taste that lingers. I’m certain you could take this to work and pass it off as COFFEE!

This poured very nicely at room tempurature and kept the smooth flavor of coffee with a slight hint of chocolate. The mouthfeel was so smooth too!! I am glad I have plenty of this beer. ;)

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2007 Bottle courtesy of Stoutlover72, thanks! Poured a deep black body with decent size head that dissolved pretty quickly. Aroma was great, coffee, chocolate and a touch of hops. Flavor was very bitter at first, not really in a bad way since I like dark bitter coffee. But in the end it seemed a little too thin. This was a good stout but nothing that wowed me like the high ratings this has. 3.8

Update. Had a fresh bottle that blew m,e away. The coffee and chocolate and sweetness of the oatmeal were a fine blend. This beer was so smooth and creamy. 4.3

Now this is truly a beer worthy of its title. Chocolate, coffee and oatmeal definitely makes your mouth water with anticipation in its aroma. Layers of complexity hit your palate and send you into visions of an early morning breakfast consisting of a good cup of joe and chocolate chip pancakes. Big mouthfeel and the sweet silky character of the lactose sugars blend beautifully with the assertive coffee flavours. Just a barely perceptible level of hops make their appearance to balance out the maltiness of this wonderful brew. A finish that just lingers on the tongue well after the experience has passed. Well done and a must try!

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2007 Bottle. A coffee lover’s dream. Aroma was dominated by roasted cofeeealongside a good dose of dark chocalate. Poured pretty thick and it coated the mouth nicely, very velvety. Taste lingered for a while with its strong coffee and dark chocolate notes. I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on a few more of these.

Bottle. Lots of coffee, roast and chocolate in the nose, but the coffee is really exemplary. Easily the darkest black pour I’ve seen (through 926), not just opaque, but seemingly drawing and absorbing light from sources around it. Little, sticky dark brown head. Robust salty flavor, dark chocolate and roast and coffee. Really salty. Dryness increases to an almost unbearable level toward the end, and the brutally dry and roasty aftertaste is memorable to say the least. Full body also has light sour notes, but the mf is light with a creamy texture. Redefines the scale for coffee flavor in stouts; the minor flaws here are found in the body (not as full as it could be) and the aroma (not as intense as others in the style), but they’re really just little nits. Intense!

12oz bottle from Artusory. This dark brown ale poured with a thin dark tan head, eliciting a malt and alcohol aroma. There is a lot of chocolate and coffee in the flavor, with a spicy alcohol finish. One sip can be savored for quite a while, as the chocolate sticks to the palate. This could be a standalone meal - delicious.

Pours black with a dark, creamy head. Strong aromas of chocolate and coffee. Excellent mouthfeel, not horribly thick, but clings for a decent period of time. Excellent beer.
