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.

Opaque brown-black with frothy coffee ice cream colored head. Smokey roasted malts, coffee, black licorice aroma. Super creamy, medium mouthfeel. Pretty dry with subltle bittering finish. Dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, malted milkshakes, rasins, dates, other dried fruits. Man, this is nice.

Pours pitch black with a modest tan head. Smoky aroma with roasted malt, coffee grounds and chocolate. Medium/full body, oily feel, medium carbonation. Taste is quite dry, but still dominant with LOTS of coffee, salty licorice and pine needles along with some burnt and sour notes. Really bitter aftertaste with more of the smoke.

OnTheTrail (286) - Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Pours very dark, light brown head. Aroma is intense coffee and cocoa, my be a little fig and plum. The bitter taste seems more like coffee than hops, with sweet malt and oats coming in and out for balance. Delicious.

AnG_BrgNor (374) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2016
Aroma of roasted, coffee and smoked. Taste is dominated by the smoked, but also with roasted, coffee and some licorice. Nice bitterness in the ending, but personly I prefer them a little bit more bitter. A nice brew for sure.

Humlehode (537) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2016
Pours pitch black. Intensely roasted, coffee aroma. Licorice, dark chocolate. Heavy, full bodied, dry. Fairly balanced, but just too much coffee for me. Bitter finish

Tasted from the tap on the 04/03/2016 (BCN Beer Festival 2016). Pours black colour with tan head. In Aroma the coffee is intense. Taste is coffee, malt chocolate, toffee with a warm coffee finish. Excelent beer. Next one please!

8.3%ABV. Stout. Poured out promisingly black. 40°SRM. Nose is smoke, drip coffee, chocolate. Wet dog or dirty sock funk. Oatmeal richness. There is actually some peat smoke and tobacco. Overall, the nose was so inviting, I was barely able to resist diving in to taste this beast! Mouthfeel was thick and soapy. Palate is very strongly reminiscent of a good milk stout. There is Dark fruit. Ripe stone fruit. Floury and pastry sweet like oatmeal. Cereal with Honey Nut Cheerios. Finish is a little hoppy for a stout with green plums, unripe starfruit and some nectarine sweet finish. Overall with the oatmeal and then the sweetness of dried fruit, you could almost close your eyes and think of a good hot oatmeal with raisins, some dried papaya chunks and brown sugar. This is how this one made me feel and I was ready at the end of the day to take on a full day! Goes on Favorites List!

shoreleave (6) - Novato, California, USA - MAR 6, 2016 does not count
Pours a great dark black with a thin head. Heavy aromas of coffee and chocolate. Incredibly balanced and crisp. Doesn't feel heavy or sticky. Satisfyingly smokey and malty. The chocolate is subtle but nice for the after taste. This is delicious.

allanmb (93) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
Pours pitch black with good tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and slight sweet smokey malt. Nice oily mouth feel with good body. Taste is coffee, big bold coffee and pleasant cocoa background. Finishes slightly bitter, verging on metallic/oak but not overly so. Very good stout, could only be better if the very last metallic taste was overcome

Acid303 (654) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAR 5, 2016
1/2 Pint on tap @ Barcelona Beer Festival. Pours black with nice tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, cookies, chocolate and hints of smoke...it’s okay but it is not specially intense. The flavour is chocolate, dried fruits and coffee, very balanced. Dry finish and lingering roasted flavours on the palate. Some sweetness as well. Full body, good carbonation. Very good!
