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.

MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Aroma: it honestly smells like a bacon and egg breakfast w/ Tobasco sauce to me, I donít care if this beer is mostly supposed to reflect coffee/chocolate flavors, this beer truly captures the essence of my Sunday breakfasts: 2 eggs, sunny side up, smothered with Tobasco verde sauce and black pepper, 3 strips of maple smoked bacon, two whole wheat toast w/ butter and cherry jelly for soaking up the yoke, strong black coffee (no cream or sugar), and a small glass of O.J., yup, thatís what Iím reminded of when I smell this brew; Appearance: the body is standard stout, coffee brown bordering on black, but the head is exactly as described on the bottle, a frothy cinnamon color that lingers after the pour; Taste: strong hashbrown/skillet, but also the roasty coffee and dark chocolate that this brew is known for, heavy smoke also, again, just like the aroma, the taste truly captures the essence of a breakfast; Palate: decent bitter lingers, which helps remind you that youíre drinking a beer as opposed to eating a meal; Overall: I can honestly say that I loved this beer before my colleagues on RB took a liking to it too, so my rating is in no way influenced by its tremendous popularity, Iíve been raving about this stout to my family and friends, and, except for one person who is not a fan of coffee, everyone has agreed that its either one of the best stouts theyíve ever had, or its at least one of the better ones theyíve had in a while, enjoy!

Bottle. A shocked I had not rated this. Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma of coffee, oatmeal, roastedmalt, earth, caramel and nuts. Smooth and drinkable. Choxcolayte covered coffee beans. Meatiness and oatiness at times. Earthy and charred bitterness. Very good

From bottle. Poured opaque brown black with medium tan head. Aroma of berries, cocoa, and booze. Drank with a dominant flavour of blackcurrant, bit of cocoa, and warm gentle numbing booze in the back. The fruit ruined it for me; maybe the bottle had gone a bit bad.

sm89walt (1902) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2016
Rating #1900. Bottle from Beer Cartel, Sydney. Poured an impenetrable black with a slowly fading though not entirely dissipating creamy tan head leaving a scattered lace. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, roasted malt, prune and raisin. Full-bodied with many of the aromas being echoed in the palate. Kept fresh by a lively carbonation. A little warmth on the back end with bourbon characters almost as though itís been barrel aged. Finishes smooth and long with high intensity throughout.

thefederalist (306) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma of chocolate and malt. Flavor is sweet, but balanced with high alcohol and mid-low bitterness. The mouthfeel is extravagant. I actually prefer this to the KBS. I feel like itís a bit cleaner.

basaywhat (154) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2016
12 oz bottle. It pours an almost black color with a tan head and little lacing. The aroma is coffee and chocolate. The taste is coffee, chocolate, vanilla, sugary milk, and some alcohol. Itís balanced well. Itís pretty smooth with a bit of carbonation.

oldrtybastrd (4887) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Pours a almost black with just a faint red. Aroma is of coffee and malt with some hops. Flavor is of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a little smoke.

PapaVillum (823) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2016
Ibenholt-farvet Imperial Stout med minimal mørkere moccafarvet skumtop på et par mm. Svinder til overflade og fremstår meget smukt. Lækker aroma præget af kaffe., havre og hårdt ristet malt. Senere lidt mørk chokolade og kælderaroma. Meget delikat smag! Den bløde mundfølelse danner rammen om en fuldent smag med noter af kaffe, chokolade og havregrød. Middel sødme og middel til solid bitterhed. En bitte anelse syrlighed til at fuldende et noget nært perfekt smagsbillede. Denne øl er blidt karboneret, som med havremalten giver en blødhed, der passer eminent til øltypen. Mellem til rund fyldig krop i en cremet konsistens. Brygget afsluttes bittert og kort. Overall: En ypperlig stout med smagsnoter og egenskaber som beskrevet på etiketten. Fremragende håndværk fra et større bryggeri. Findes den bedre? I Guds eget land kan man finde alt, men denne øls smag er, sammenholdt med ABV'en, noget nær det perfekte. 355 ml, flaske, 8.3 % ABV, BB: 05/08/16, købt i Meny i Rotunden i Hellerup. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
