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.

A fresh ’07 bottle. Pours a deep, dark brown almost black with virtually no head. A thin, light brown/cinnamon head does bubble up, but quickly dissipates leaving a ring that clings to the glass with nice lacing. An aroma of big chocolate malts and dark roasted coffee hits you like a ton of bricks. I’m a coffee lover and this just smells damn good. Balanced, smooth and slightly chewy on the palate with big coffee flavor punching through. A touch of bitterness like a cup of straight black dark roast coffee. Finishes smooth and slightly dry. Next to Peche Mortel, this is one of the best coffee stouts I’ve had. If it had enough caffeine to offset the alcohol, I could drink this for breakfast everyday. Definitely a beer that lives up to its billing and a real flagship beer from one of my favorite brewers.

Dark brown color with mocha head and some lacing. Aroma of coffee, oats, and bittersweet chocolate. Taste follows the nose but a little bit better and more developed. Pretty thick and creamy and overall one awesome oatmeal stout!

33cl bottle. Pours black with an uneven foamy beige head. Aroma is lots of roastiness, oat, coffee. Taste is similar with roasted malts, bitter chocolate, coffee. Thick oily mouthfeel, full body, light carbonation. Light final acidity, excellent dessert like aftertaste.

One of my favorites of all time. Chocolate, caramel, and coffee, this stout is delicious in a bottle or on tap. I can drink one or 10, and love it just the same. The warmer the better, and anytime of the year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep brown-black , with the slightest hint of red. Small dark tan head. Chocolate and deep roasted coffee in the nose. Very earthy. Quite bitter, not terribly sweet. Heavy body, upfront alcohol, chewy, some acidity, not a ton of carbonation. Long finish. Very well balanced. Excellent.
