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.

bastarda (300) - Freiburg, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2016
on tap@LagerLager, Neukölln; nice and balanced, not overly complex, but really well done in how intensely aromatic it is, with mainly dark chocolate and coffee notes and a velvety mouthfeel.

Bawelt (272) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 9, 2016
Nez très fumé, très boisé. Torréfaction apparemment assez équilibrée, on trouve un fond de chocolat au lait, le café est assez timide. La bouche est très ronde, pas étonnant pour une milk stout. On trouve très clairement le chocolat au lait, une légère acidité bien soutenir par une petite effervescence en attaque. On trouve aussi pas mal de bois fumé. On trouve des faux airs de salade de wakame ! Sûrement dus aux notes de céréales genre sésame et à l’acidité qui part sur un fond très léger de vinaigre. En tout, on a un très bel équilibre, une grande buvabilite, une richesse, des surprises. À tester !

SinH4 (1605) - Garching, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2016
On tap at Redhot. Black color with small but stable and nice beige head. Aroma is coffee, black chocolate, very rich and smells like it?s gonna be very thick already. This has only 6.5%, right? Taste is black chocolate, coffee, a hint of a spicy chili catch, but it?s not actually hot. Smooth mothfeel, but present carbonation. Full finish, towards the end the black chocolate rather turns into chocolate milk. Aftertaste is chocolate milky as well. Mouthfeel is just an epsilon watery, but not in a bad way, the oats also make it very silky. It?s thick enough for this strength. A good balance between easy drinkability and thickness.

Bottle at home. Pours black with big brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, a little dried fruits and alcohol. Taste sweet, with some roasted bitterness. Well balanced.

pivnizub (9729) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2016
Bouteille: Literally black, small and stable tanned foamy layer; moderate - but really distinctive - sweet- bitter toasty and ashy nose; molasses and dried fruits underneath; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour with a slight acidity, almost full bodied and pretty soft; dried fruits and toasted malt and coffee in the sweet-bitter-sourish finish. Yes, very good…

ShivanDragon (2799) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2016
schenkt zwart met fantastische kraag, mooi fijn kleverig en licht bruin. aroma van koffie, melkchocolade, geroosterde mouten, lekker. smaken zijn redelijk zoet, haver, melkchocolade, koffie, iets scherps (peper), donkere chocolade, cacao poeder, zacht en glad en romig, lage co2, wel wat dun van textuur wat ik op zich iets jammer vind. als hij wat dikker was en iets meer chocolade was het werkelijk fantastisch, maar nu is het ook prima.

kostasgiotis (61) - GREECE - JAN 2, 2016
it pours a total black body with a one finger head that disappears instantly.the aromas are coffee dominantly, a little chocolate, blackberry and some smoke .the body is full and oily.the taste is coffee all the way,dark chocolate, malt, berry like-a little sour, and not conqueringly bitter.the aftertaste is bittersweet, with a warm taste of chocolate and malt.Overall is a nice one.
