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.

Bottle. Pours black with little head. Coffee aroma and big coffee taste up front finishing with a bit of a metallic taste. There is a chalkiness as well. Overall very good and simple with a nice coffee flavor.

Nice balance of sweet and bitter. Creamy full body. Actually find myself chewing while drinking this beer. Coffee is the star here. Just flat out enjoyable.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- It has a crazy bakery smell to it. very enticing. Appearance- It is like looking into the abyss! it is pitch black. with a small tan head. Taste- Wow, I am a novice venturing into the stout arena but this is incredible. A mix of coffee, cappuccino and hops. Palate- A heavy beer body wise with moderate carbonation. Overall- I am loathe to follow the beer snobs and call this awesome. . . but it truly is.

bmeup (544) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2015
Tugun Cellars.Dark beer with lots of earthy chocolate that is sweet and bitter together with a hint of roasty coffee and heated spice. Light to medium body and sweet. Pleasant IS, but there is plenty out there beyond this.

12oz to tulip. Bottled 11/16/14. Pours black, with thick mocha colored head. Aroma is fresh cold brewed coffee with a slight grainy/ malty quality. Taste is fresh coffee with chocolate and roasted malts.Mouthfeel is slightly....’grainy’?

GlasgowTAD (224) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2015
Pours jet black with a huge mocha head which recedes to a foamy layer. Aroma is dominated by coffee, dark chocolate and some dried fruits - raisins, figs. Rich dark chocolate, coffee bitterness, slight vanilla sweetness and some roastiness is picked up in the taste. Full bodied with a decadent mouthfeel.

Hanoi (509) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Stunned to find I’ve not rated this. Bottle. Nose is fresh, fresh coffee, slight vanilla a little woodiness and a little smoke. Taste is coffee, vanilla, a little coco, an earthy note from the oats, emerging smoke in the finish, a touch of spice and pepper. Slight dates note underneath. It’s a mature classic.

I was disappointed when I found out this was only a seasonal beer. I really wanted this to be my year round go to beer.

From a 12 oz bottle with bottle date 10/14/14. Consumed Halloween night. Pours dark dark brown, light coming through at the sides, two finger cinnamon head. I could smell the coffee immediately after cracking the cap. So much coffee in the nose, the coffee just dominates everything else. Slightly roasty, just a tinge of alcohol, but not so much chocolate. Taste follows the nose, bitter coffee, a very little bit of alcohol, the chocolate sweetens it up a little bit, but the thing there I can’t shake is this underripe green pepper flavor. Maybe that’s the coffee. I don’t know, but I don’t necessarily like it. Still pretty good. Medium bodied, I was expecting something fuller. As a guy who doesn’t drink coffee, I wasn’t sure if this was worth it, but it’s still pretty good.
