COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at The Black Squirrel. Pours a dark black. Thin brown head with lots of retention. Nose is lots of coffee, some dark chocolate, but mostly coffee. Really thick palette. Vaguely reminds me of a Dunkin Donuts Mocha Coolatta. I know itís sacrilegious to compare the two, but meh. Lots of coffee and roasted malt flavor. Overall very good, but you knew that from the other 1200 ratings. I prefer the Canadian Breakfast Stout, which I think has a more complex flavor profile.

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.

Stunned to find Iíve 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. Itís 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 canít shake is this underripe green pepper flavor. Maybe thatís the coffee. I donít know, but I donít necessarily like it. Still pretty good. Medium bodied, I was expecting something fuller. As a guy who doesnít drink coffee, I wasnít sure if this was worth it, but itís still pretty good.

Strong beer but not a strong imp stout. Very drinkable for the style, but nevertheless has rich buque. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Good Spirits Co. in Glasgow. Pours almost black with a medium, tan head. Lovely aroma of coffee and malts. Tastes of coffee and dark, silky chocolate. Chocolate is more prominent in the finish. Very thick, oily mouthfeel. A bit like drinking a liquidised coffee and chocolate smoothie. Basically, delicious. One of the best beers Iíve ever tasted.

Dark black pour with creamy brown head. Nose is heavy coffee, the most Iíve ever encountered in a beer! I love stout and I love coffee, so this thing is kind of a no-brainer. The flavor doesnít disappoint. Found myself thinking I should add cream and sugar. This is one serious coffee stout!
