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.

Aroma: it honestly smells like a bacon and egg breakfast w/ Tobasco sauce to me, I don’t 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, that’s what I’m 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 you’re 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, I’ve 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 they’ve ever had, or its at least one of the better ones they’ve had in a while, enjoy!

Absolutely delicious. Strong coffee chocolate aroma. Flavor is quite sweet but there’s a roasted bitterness that keeps it from being cloying. Thick as oil, black as night. Tiny tan lace of head.

Svart och nästan trög. Brända toner, kaffe och choklad. Väldigt balanserad och trevlig. Fyllig och djup smak, gillar detta ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Mikkeller, Torvehallerne. Pours pitch black with a tan head. Aroma of sweet milky chocolate, roasted malts and coffee, vanilla. Taste is a nice balance between sweet and bitter. Slightly creamy and sticky mouthfeel, full-bodied and medium-low carbornation
