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.

Black stout with a thin beige head. Aroma is a coffee and chocolate blend. The initial taste is sweet chocolate and a touch of coffee, with a malty finish that I think has a bit of hop coming through as well. Very nice.

Bottle. A big inviting coffee and chocolate aroma. Sadly the flavour doesnt live up to the aroma - flat coffee with some ash. Really lacks body for the ABV and style.

beermearjay (22) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2014
Bottle into Ass Clown snifter. Pours rich total black, thinning creamy tan head, nice lacing on the grass. Beautiful milky, coffee, malt chocolate aromas, but I am picking up very light egg and bananna. Low bitterness, mid sweet, light liquorice, faint chocolate. Id say fairly thin texture. Easy to drink and Id like to pair this with a nice cheesecake as suggest by the brewer, not something Id drink by itself and be overly amazed at.

wimpyjoe (2950) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Full-bodied, black with a large creamy brown head. Its very deep with its chocolate and coffee aromas and flavours and very tasty for it. Smoky in its aftertaste.

GraveAtSea (130) - Lublin, POLAND - APR 2, 2014
Black color with brown head, which disappear quickly but lacing glass. Nice aroma: dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, dried fruits, a bit smoky. Well-balanced taste, semi sweet with nice bitterness in the finish. Notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, dried fruits. Medium body with medium carbonation. Really solid and decent Stout.

jkwood04 (3398) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 29, 2014
On tap in a pint glass. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some light chocolate and coffee notes, hints of smoke, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A pretty good beer.
