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.

Great drinking beer. Personally better than KBS. Much more smooth and easy to drink. One of my favorite beers.

Sente-se o álcool, mas na medida certa para o estilo. Aquecimento alcoólico lembra um bom whisky. Toque salgado a partir da segunda metade surge como charme e diferencial nessa caprichadíssima representante do estilo.140 s

From a bottle to a glass. Taste is coffee, malt and coffee. A little less than I was expecting given all the hype. Still a very good beer.

Bouteille. 8.3%. Merci Jean-Ben !. Couleur noire opaque, mousse brune. Arômes puissants de café et cacao. En bouche, notes intenses de café, chocolat, torréfaction mais le tout est d’une douceurs incroyable. Finale en café, un peu de cacao, et une amertume délicate qui demande une autre gorgée. Excellente.

Smooth mouth. Coffee taste well balanced with the malt. Goes great with breakfast in the afternoon. Chase it with a shot of bourbon and some pancakes with maple syrup and bacon and you can save $100 on KBS and CBS. Top three coffee stouts with Wake and Bake and ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle from Ship in the Bottle West Kirby Wirral. Pours very dark with a small head which soon dissipates. Strong aroma of toasted malt with some coffee and chocolate. Intense burnt flavour allied to a strong coffee/chocolate swallow. Not the best I have tasted but really worth trying.

On tap. Served a virtual black color with a nice head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and bit of chocolate. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and bit of chocolate. Taste of roasted coffee, malt and bit of chocolate sweetness. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Full body, thick and almost gritty. Nicely balanced. Very good beer for the style.
