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.

Pours black with a beige head. Nose is very cocoa, coffee and Carmel. Initially sweet into the mouth, then you get the coffee and bitterness which also follows on the swallow and into the aftertaste, pleasantly so. Solid representative of the style. Enjoyable.

BIF project. Pours pitch black with a thin and quickly dissipating peanut butter colored head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is dark roasted full bodied coffee, bitter chocolate, burnt sugar and stovetop oatmeal bubbling away. Get a huge initial bitter chocolate kick on the tongue that gives way to the creamy oats and roasted coffee. Good bitter coffee/chocolate finish to set it off. Excellent stout.

A very thick coffee scented nose. Super smooth and rich in the mouth, plenty of chocolate and oatmeal flavor. Sweetness is just cut at the close with a bit of roast astringency. Like a cold-brew coffee on nitro.

This should be an "after dinner" stout as itís a perfect cap to an evening of fine dining. This beer has so much to it- from the initial hilarious bottle image (Ubiquitous to Founders!) to the last sip, thats been warmed by you hopefully savoring this fine beer. I buy from my neighborhood market in Lefferts Gardens in Brooklyn. I always pour it into a snifter. It has a slight head after a rigorous pour, but it quickly dissipates. I often let this sit a while to warm up. Initially aromas are obvious- coffee, caramel, a slight smoke, and of course dark/bitter chocolate. The taste doesnít disappoint after all the great smells. Itís got a dry somewhat stickymouthfeel because of the booziness, but I love it I know thatís an odd way to describe it, but that how it feels. CO2 is mid-low range, another plus for this great stout. I feel as though the finish is perfect- long and boozy.

Huge coffee bomb, almost has a pickled smell? Raw coffee bean. Lots of coffee follows, but a ton a chocolate too. Drinking this whole eating chocolate chip pancakes. Yes sir ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hey, I like stouts. And I was really looking forward to this one. And itís a good solid 3 beer in my book. But even though thereís all this coffee flavor, to me itís burnt coffee with cough syrup with a bit of bakerís chocolate. Aroma is kind of sickly sweet. Even the mouthfeel doesnít come together the way I think a great imperial stout does. Oh well.

Aroma has loads of Kona coffee. Firstly you taste coffee, Chocolate, roasty malts, dark fruits among figs. Finish is than slight dry with coffee and dark bitter chocolate, well balanced, but with no presence of the ABV at all. For me too low abv.
