Breakfast stout with a gentle touch of smoke, coffee and chocolate. Broken Dream is deep and complex. She lurks in your imagination. She binds smoke and coffee aromas with chocolate, milk and oats to create something thick, velvety and slick. She will draw you towards a land of flavour, passion and colour.

joeneugs (5743) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle from Ledgers. It pours a dark brown/black color with a small light brown head. The aroma with roasted malt, cocoa and coffee up front with more subtle notes of smoke, brown sugar and sweet fig/raisin dark fruitiness. Good complex stout aroma. The flavor has a good amount of tartness with more fig, red grape, raisin, smoke, chocolate and some coffee mainly in the finish. Although mild, there’s some nice burnt sugar and hard roasted bitterness in the finish. The body is fairly light and very tart for the style. Pretty good overall.

sjogro (2684) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2016
Tap at Murphy’s Law. Opaque black with fluffy tan head. Big deep roasted chocolate malts, hints of coffee, blueberry fruitiness, light rotting wood/green coffee/berry sourness. Over medium sweet with very light sour and medium bitter. Medium body, cocoa powder dry texture, average carbonation. Soft vanilla silky feel and finish.

On tap at Armakeggon 2016. The deep roasted aromas and flavours that run through this make it a special beer.

superspak (4657) - Michigan, USA - SEP 13, 2016
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 5/17/2017. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, toasted oats, dark bread, molasses, vanilla, cream, raisin, plum, cherry, fig, light smoke, slight herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roast/bready malt, coffee, lactose, and moderate fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, toasted oats, dark bread, molasses, vanilla, cream, raisin, plum, cherry, fig, light smoke, slight herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, toasted oats, dark bread, molasses, vanilla, cream, dark fruit, light smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt, coffee, lactose, and moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from roast bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/silky, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6.5%. Overall this is an excellent coffee milk stout! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt, coffee, lactose, and moderate fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

IlGagario (115) - Modena, ITALY - SEP 9, 2016
In bottiglia. Colore nero caffé. Schiuma soapy compatta. Olfatto netto di caffé, malto e leggera liquirizia. Carbonazione più che soffice, attiva. Aroma maltato d’avena, caffé (appena acido alle gonadi), soffice cioccolato vellutato, finale di caramello. Gusto molto dolce poi ritenuto da una tenue amarezza di malto, con evidenziazione del luppolo nel finale. Piacevole finale di bocca di caffé. Corpo leggero, trama da watery a vellutata. Una ennesima conferma da Siren!
