COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask conditioned and keg unpasteurised; Regular
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.

poech73 (149) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2014
Bouteille 33cl @Huens. Voilà un beau Stout comme on s’y attend: riche, dense et assez savoureux qui offre un beau nez épicé avec de l’orge grillé, du malt torréfié, un soupçon de vanille, un pointe de fumé, du sucre réglissé. C’est une gorgée fort douce qui s’offre aux papilles assez lactée avec des arômes de café, et accompagné d’un sirop fruité légèrement acide sur la fin. C’est très peu amère, assez court sauf les arômes torréfiés en final qui se terminent sur un houblon minéral discret. Le tout est fort onctueux. Très bien.

mattyhennessy (253) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2014
Pours jet black with a tan head that fades to lacing. Very little aroma. Some cocoa and toffee sweetness. Flavour is far superior to the aroma. Super smooth texture. Some oats, milk, coffee, cocoa and a roasted barley finish. Some liquorice character

Jado (490) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a really solid black with a thick dark tan head that subsides to a cap. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee beans, black coffee, smoke, stewed fruit (prunes, dates) and cocoa powder. Taste is black coffee and cocoa at the front before a huge roasted, smoky bitterness washes through. Some dark fruit and chocolate comes through towards the end. Doesn’t fall off at all. Lingering dark chocolate and fruity finish. A really top notch stout.
