6% 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.

Bottle from Vesuvio in Darlington. Pours black with a nice tan head. Nice chocolate and coffee aroma. The taste has a little sharpness too it before silkie chocolate and coffee comes through. Great aftertaste. It’s just a little light in body. Very nice stuff.

laidbackbloke (59) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Tap, Euston Tap, London. Following a 10 minute heat-up the beer unravels pleasant roast and malty notes in aroma, elegantly entwined with some solid chocolate and coffee punch with a touch of dryness on the palate. At large, one odd the most balanced beers i have ever had pleasure to dive into

33 cl bottle (6,5%) @ VastActiv
Aroma has licorice, some coffee and peaty tones. Flavour has salty licorice, some coffee and coffee. The salty licorice is rather dominant here. Too salty but still rather enjoyable. Could not locate the smoke here.
