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.

Damn near the perfect stout. Pours jet black, aroma of chocolate. Taste primarily roasted coffee, some sweet chocolate. Doesn’t get much better than this.

sawbuck (330) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Beautiful aroma of coffee, sweet molassess, chocolate, and vanilla bean. Ebony in color with a deep tan head. Sweet toasty malt first. Nice melding of flavors, starting with chocolate, coffee, and laced with fresh vanilla. Bitterness sneaks in and balances well with the sweetness, and intensifies on the finish. Dry mouthfeel with some chewy texture as well. Outstanding.

worldbeertaste (1654) - AUSTRIA - SEP 29, 2014
One year old bottle. Pitch black with a bubbly white, lasting head. Smells of liquorish, bourbon, lots of deep roast, and coffee. Lots and lots of chocolate. Soft spice. Full creamy body with light carbonation. Tastes of deep chocolate with lots of burnt roast coffee and super malty dry finish. So much coffee. Delicious by every meaning of he word

Angelmonster (118) - Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Beautiful looking beer, pitch black with a milk chocolate head. Lacing for days. Smell is of sweet hershys chocolate syrup, slight espresso. Reminds me of Southern Tier Choklat or Mocha. Taste is more chocolate stout than coffee stout. Weird bitter aftertaste, alcohol is pretty light. Palate is incredible. Oats add a thick consistency to this oatmeal stout. Carbonation is good, head adds an additional pleasant texture. Overall great beer. Just wish coffee was a bit more up front. One of the best mouth feels ever.Worth revisiting every couple of years

McBeastie (16) - Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Midnight black, thin tan head. Strong coffee, roasted malt and a bit of alcohol aroma. Rich and creamy chocolate and strong coffee flavors along with a roasted malt and balanced bitter bite at the finish. Excellent beer.

Clownoisseur (218) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Pours an oily black, minimal tan head. Strong aromas of iced coffee, roast, chocolate and oatmeal. Taste follows the nose with lots of coffee leading the way with bitter chocolates close behind. Mouthfeel is very oily and slightly thin, given the list of ingredients. Nice balance into a bitter finish with mild notes of char and alcohol. A staple for any fall/winter season.

Well what can I say other than its Breakfast Stout, the beer that every other stout wishes it was. This beer is what winter is all about. Morning, afternoon or night, I can drink this beer whenever. Between this beer and their new Dark Penance, I think i’m all set with dark beers for the next few months. My bank account is going to take a hit, but its soo worth the $$.

Dark brown, reddish, almost black beer with some blonde head. Aroma has roasted malts, coffee, vanilla and dark chocolate. Flavor has roasted malts, licorice, vanilla and coffee. Full palate with quite strong carbonation and stinging of bitterness. Finish has medium bitterness with some coffee acidicy and alcohol. Long aftertaste. A bit too much coffee, otherwise decent.
