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.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2006 If you are like me and love a cup of strong coffee in the morning, the stronger the better, well then I got a stout for you. Smells like coffee with one or two lumps of sugar. Black as Labrador retriever. Yes, one dimensional, but a dimension I REALLY appreciate. Very, little acidity(something I didnít like about this years Speedway Stout). Sweet finish, exceptional stout.

huge coffee aroma, black as night with a dark reddish brown head, huge robust coffee flavor with a touch of souring bitterness by the hops, very full mouthfeel with a touch of oilyness at the end, stop by the brewery and throw some shells on the floor and get floored by this bad boy!

On tap at the brewery: Deep dark brown with a small brown head, Aroma of roasted malt and fresh brewed coffee, full mouthfeel with a rich robust coffee flavor with a touch of chocolate and a slight hop bitterness at the finish, a delight, drinking this at breakfast would definitely be a great way to start the day.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2006 Bottle shared with tupalev & jerc - courtesy of tupalev. I originally rated this beer based on a sample at the Michigan Brewerís Guild Festival a couple of years ago, but my rating simply consisted of the word "COFFEE!" written over and over again, so Iíve always wanted to give it another try and a proper rating. Many thanks to tupalev for giving me the chance. Pours a deep inky black, absolutely beautiful as a it hits the glass. Huge aroma of coffee, chocolate, bourbon and wood smoke - outstanding. Full, round, lucious mouthfeel - wow! OhmygodsoGOOD flavour of dark roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, big roasted malts, a hint of smoke, and a moderately dry finish. I concur with tupalev when he says "One of the best stouts I have ever tried". Un-freakiní-believable!

Beautiful iridescent black appearance with a heavy coffee aroma (java with sugar - it smells sweet). Really creamy at first, hoppy, smooth, lightly bitter. Finishes quickly. Quite good, though high alcohol at 8.4%!

Thick black body with a nice tan head and heavy roasted coffee aroma. Sweet thick rich coffee flavor with a tingling carbonation and a full palate. I would love to drink one of these for breakfast everyday.

Innocent in appearance, this beer is definitely something to be associated with breakfast time! What a wonderful presence of roasted coffee, more than in any other beer I've tasted. Very interesting, slightly warming, and with good drinkability. The coffee in this brew is really addicting.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2004 I probably could drink this stuff with breakfast. I donít much care for coffee as coffee, but put it into a beer and Iím happy as a clam. Tons of coffee flavor, with not a whole lot else, but thatís ok. Tastey. RERATE 12/24/2004: Had a pitcher of this with friends the other week, now that Iíve been on RB a while, I think I appreciate this stuff even more. The chocolate and coffee notes are perfectly balanced, right amount of sweetness. Itís too bad that they donít continuously have this on tap. But, now that itís bottled, Iíll have to give that a try.
