A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

Tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. Simply amazing. If you like Bourbon youíll love this! Coffee and chocolate mixed with Bourbon. Smooth and very satisfying.

simply put, one of the best. the breakfast stout in itself is fantastic but add the oak barrel aging and you get added notes of vanilla, oak, and of course bourbon. i gave one of my four pack to a friend from new hampshire, he said it was the best beer he had ever had.

Thanks to Bob for this one. Dark, thick black pour. A medium brown creamy head disappears quickly. Aroma is a chalky coffee and chocolate. Flavor is boozy up front, chocolaty, slight sourness, bakers chocolate bitterness lasts in the finish, and a slight caramel bourbon flavor is noticed. One of these is enough for me, I much prefer the original breakfast.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2009 Black with a medium tan head, moderately dissipating. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, sugar, coffee, some oak and moderate bourbon. Taste of bourbon, coffee, light chocolate, roasted malt and some saltiness. Smooth and finishes up a bit roasty with some bourbon and warming effects. I like it better than I did the first time, but I still prefer the original breakfast stout.

At Three Cellars tasting Founderís Brewery night. Very dark brown with thin light brown head. Smells of bourbon & coffee. Taste of overpowering bourbon & some coffee. Kind of sticky & tastes a little too much like bourbon (yuck). Over-rated, IMO.

Poured from a 12oz bottle and served in a snifter. This beer poured an almost opaque black with just a few rays of light seeping through around the edges of the glass. A thin head of tan foam lasted throughout, leaving some thick lace. The aroma of the beer was made up of a heavy dose of strong coffee, chocolate, smoke, burnt malt, and just a hint of bourbon. The flavor consisted of sweet chocolate, vanilla, espresso roast coffee, and a very nice, mellow bourbon flavor. The bourbon was not overpowering or in the way, just complimentary to the other flavors. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and slightly sticky. Very light carbonation. A really nice imperial stout that uses barrel aging to add another layer of flavor...not overtake the base beer. Like a cup of strong coffee with a nip of whiskey.

pours a thick used motor oil black with a nice looking and huge two finger fluffy black brown head. aroma is bourbon, sweet chocolate, and some coffee. has a heavy body with great lacing and a bit of carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma but stronger, and in the aftertaste the chocolate is more bitter bakers chocolate and cocoa powder. has a little dry aftertaste and the 10% abv is well hidden. a superb stout!! it is somewhat oily and creamy on the palate and is a little sticky on the fingers and lips. every flavor sticks to the tongue for a while and as it warms a little more the aroma does get stronger. i could only drink one of these in one sitting though.

Black as hell pour with thin tan head, nice lacing. Nose is hugely coffee grounds, some licorice and chocolate, some raisiny dark fruit... and oh yeah, more coffee! Taste is chocolate and dark fruits covered in bitter grainy coffee grounds. Body 8is very creamy with mild carbonation. The flavor keeps making me think Iíll be chewing on coffee grounds soon, but itís so smooth and delicious. good stuff to be sure.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2008 Bottle from STFUN! Dark black color, small toffee colored head that dissappeared quickly. Nice aroma of bourbon and coffee. It is really smooth. Taste is vanilla, coffee and hint of bourban. Texture was medium. Over all, a great beer. Thanks josh!
