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. this pours a very thick black body with a very small mocha head formation. great aroma - I could sniff this for several hundred seconds. coffee is in full force along with rich decadent chocolate. starts out with coffee flavour and mellows out into a silky smooth chocolate explosion. bittersweet finish with an astringent lingering roastiness. very viscous texture and the alcohol warmness is welcoming. awesome. I vaguely remember trying this at RBSG, but my notes were very sparse as it was late in the night when I tried it - I think I prefer the bottle.

Thank you Jeremy for this amazing gift! Pours a heavy, thick black color with a creamy, deep tan head. Coffee beans dominate the aroma. With some sweet malts, toffee, and some warm chocolate. Very inviting! Not as thick as the pour indicates! Oats, not overly sweet. Definitely finishes off with some roasted coffee beans. Would love to try this on tap.

Tap. Near black in colour with a rich beige coloured lingering head, awesome lace. The aroma was of coffee, lots of chocolate malts, toffee sweetness, roasty and burnt toast. The flavour was of hot chocolate, coffee with a couple of creams, roasted malts and slightly sweet. Very dry mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes slightly sweet, lingering and dry.

bottle. pours pitch black with a huge brown head. smells intensly of coffee and a hint of chocolate. taste is coffee and coffee and more coffee. mouthfeel is a little thin but still smooth and creamy. you can just start to taste the chocolate towards the end. not bad though i am not a coffee lover.

jazz88 (2592) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle. A rich black color with a laced dark brown head. Wow, the intense coffee aromas waft above the glass. Intense. Not as thick as I would have expected, but it packs a powerful coffee flavor and aftertaste. Iím not a huge coffee fan, but I can appreciate what this beer has to offer. Thanks to OhioDad (Scott) for the trade.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2007 great with scrambled eggs after a 36 hour binge in the middle of no where: oats, unsweetened chocolates, cofee as promised but I would not, could not eat it with a fork and should not would not eat with with a dork.

SDalkoholic (2214) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Bottle courtesy of BBB63. Pitch black stout with small amount of head created. Aroma is sweet of chocolate and coffee added with creamer. In the flavor, huge serving of chocolate paired with dark roast malt that also gives off a strong coffee like flavor. A notice of oats in the background and is a quite dry. Alcohol content is masked and very well making this a fantastic breakfast stout.

shadey (1977) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Black oily pour with a medium dark tan head. Head reduces down to a thin film that is creamy. Huge coffee aroma pummels you when you put your nose in the glass. Dark burnt coffee flavor. Iím having a hard time tasting anything other than bitter dark coffee. Body seems a little light for an imperial. I was surprised by the coffee aroma, but the flavor and palate are dissapointing.

Thanks Santa!! What a terrific stout with a lot going on with nothing overwhelming. The coffee and chocolate are there, but without beating you over the head. Iím not feeling verbose, but it looks great, smells great, tastes great!!

Pours jet black with a thick, luscious brown head. Aroma of coffee and caramel, with a smoky/burnt quality. Full bodied, with some chalkiness. To be honest, I think this one gets caught in between being an over-the-top coffee stout (like Bellís Java Stout) and a stout where the addition of coffee serves to accentuate the existing stout characteristics (like Dark Lord). This seems to be a nicely crafted stout, but every time the subtle nuances (chocolate, caramel, vanilla) try to push their way forward, your palate is hit with burnt coffee flavors. Finish lasts forever. Could benefit from less coffee or more sweetness to balance it out a bit. However, being a fan of coffee, I canít help but like this beer. I finished off the bottle before I knew it, I could drink a lot of this. Thanks to TAR for the bottle!
