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.

Pours an opaque black from the bottle with fluffy tan head and light lacing, but good brown film. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee, with a hint of sweet malt. Taste is all the roasted malt and coffee, but not overbearing and well balanced. Booze is well hidden, really smooth for an imperial stout. Damn good.

Pours jet black with a finger of tan head that had little retention but left some nice lacing. There is a strong aroma of roasted malt and coffee. The taste backs up the nose. Roasted malt, coffee and throw in some semi-sweet chocolate to make this offering nearly perfect. The lingering roasted bitterness in the finish is the perfect end to an outstanding beer experience. My favorite style is stout and this is my favorite stout. I cannot imagine a better beer than this. A++

Tap. One of the best and readily available. Pours a dark black with a creamy head. Nose and flavor are smooth chocolate and coffee. I love this beer!

Delicious brew. Very complex flavors but they work very well together. Full bodied with obvious chocolate notes and a hearty mouth feel reminiscent of the oatmeal notes also found within. Dark when poured, fairly lightly carbonated. Great all around!

Pour- black with minimal tan head Aroma - Chocolate powerful on the nose, rolled oats, coffee, vanilla Taste - Same as the nose with some boozy taste, but very minimal. Palate - full bodied, cake mouthfeel, soft carbonation, medium bitter coffee finish. Still one of the best beers on the planet. Well balanced, very flavorful, and very satisfying.

Now this is beer! Very enjoyable. Rich flavor with a hint of sour, just enough to give it some character. Barkeep bring me another!
