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.

12oz. bottle at Stags Head NYC. Pours pitch black with small foamy off white head that dissapates quickly. Aroma is huge espresso. Taste is of coffee and slightly sweet with chocolate and oatmeal notes. Incredibly smooth and lovely. Beautiful balance. Terrific finish and the bitterness does not linger at all, lovely finish.

Bottle from a trade, thanks Artmcd8! Black colour, beige foam. Medium carbonation. Aroma of roasted malts with notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Very well balanced. Bitter finish. Nice stout!

Chocolate, coffee, malt, and no surprise oatmeal. Really nice deep flavors. One of my favorite stouts.

Had this a few weeks ago. The smell was interesting, it smelt a little like Vegemite which put me off slightly. Everything else about this stout is amazing though. The taste is phenomenal. The rich aroma and taste of chocolate and coffee of this beer makes it a stand out. It felt like I was drinking a coffee cake, definitely lives up to it’s name of breakfast stout.

I do love coffee and good coffee but this just doesn’t do it for me. The coffee smell and taste is there but perhaps too much of it that kills the rest of the beer. Subjective I know but still does not take away from a fine beer and I won’t allow that to detract too much from the ratings. This is still a lovely, thick, coffee, malt forward beer with chocolate and a little bitterness.

Pours a deep pitch black, almost like dirty motor oil. Aroma is coffee, and rich dark chocolate. Taste is, like the aroma, rich dark chocolate and a notable (but very good) balanced bitterness. Awesome beer. Coffee, and rich maltyness is also present.

Bottle. Pours black with dark tan head. Aroma is heavy chocolate, fresh coffee grounds, lots of aroma. Taste is very coffee, not too dry - not too sweet, great carbonation and great chocolate. Really good.

Floback (522) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 20, 2014
4-pack from some generic store in Indianapolis called Payless Liquors. Pours a dark brown with a thumbnail of frothy tan head that never fades. Tight lacing. Big nose of roasted coffee and cocoa beans. The mouth is absorbed in more roasty nuttiness with notes of roasted nuts, toffee, espresso, enormous malts, caramel, more chocolate, and subtle syrup. Huge body and medium carbonation. The ABV is hidden well besides the enormity of the flavor itself. Very nice!

mattyhennessy (253) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2014
This beer has everything. Pours thick black with a light tan head. Aromas of oats, coffee, bitter cocoa. Sweet creamy flavour and.texture. Initial chocolate flavour is rounded out very well with coffee and charred malt bitterness and slight alcohol. Not too oily, medium carbonation and excellent mouthfeel. Hard to fault

Great drinking beer. Personally better than KBS. Much more smooth and easy to drink. One of my favorite beers.
