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.

An extremely well balanced beer. I’m really impressed that it’s "only" 8,3 ABV.

Poured from bottle. Pours jet black engine oil. Doesn’t retain much of a head. Smell - the beer isn’t that strong smelling. I am picking up coffee, and subtle hints of chocolate, but it’s not very well prounounced. Taste - wow. The taste just completely shatters your noses impression. This is amazing. Nice silky mouthfeel, roasted coffee and chocolate. It is so smooth at 8.3%. With every sip I keep saying to myself how amazing this beer is. Its like you could pour it over a bowl of icecream. 10/10 on the taste. Probably the best balanced coffee beer you can find. Get it!!

Below average. Boring, wouldn’t drink again. Coffee flavor is dull and tannic. Consistency is thin. Aroma is poor.

This is a truly unique imperial stout. Deep black colour with a light brown head. Aroma and taste are full of coffee and dark bitter chocolate with hints of caramel, roasted malt and oat. A great imperial stout.

Very dark brown color, average sized brownish head. Aroma of coffee, herbs, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt. Taste is the same. Very smooth and sticky. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Long coffee and malty aftertaste. Excellent.
