Having this stout on tap at Pauls Place in Kankakee, Il. This beer is as black as it gets. It was poured into a pint glass. This beer has a strong coffee smell to it. It taste amazing. Right away I taste the robust coffee flavor then followed by the chocolate and finishing off with a slight taste of oats. This beer is thick and feels great in the mouth. Ive had the bottled version of this beer, but I prefer it on tap. Even after the beer is gone you are left with a pleasant taste in the mouth.

Poured super opaque...not a lot of head...but what I would expect from an Imp Stout. I was a little surprised at the aroma....not that it was bad, but not as much as I would expect. This is a really well balanced beer. I probably had it at about 55 degrees and nothing was crazily overwhelming. Just a a really good roasty taste...I had the pre conceived notion that it might SCREAM coffee, but was pleasantly surprised. Very long finish and I feel the coffee turns a little nutty at the end. Its got a great reputation and its deserved.

Bottle tasting at work. I had the sublime pleasure of tasting BS and KBS right next to each other... what a treat! The breakfast Stout has a wonderful flavor profile with a palate thats just a touch too thin. The head is a wnderful amber brown with amazing retention and the aroma fills the nose with roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and caramel. An amazing product that was just umlucky enough to go up against its big brother today. BS is a MUST try, but wait til you get ahold of KBS!

Pours black with a thin brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and slight alcohol. Flavor hits right away with a very strong coffee flavor that slowly dissapates into chocolate and eventually moves to a mix of coffee and roasted malts. Im not a huge fan of coffee, but this beer is a nice blend of chocolate and coffee flavors.

12oz bottle into a snifter glass. Pours jet black with a small tan head. Smells of choco and patent malts with a blend of coffee bean. Nice mouthfeel, medium body, a little light on the carbonation. Rich choco malts with a bitter coffee finish. Beautiful stout.

12oz bottle. Smell of Intense dark roasted, slightly bitter, coffee aroma. Dark bakers chocolate. A slight milky creaminess in the nose.So Creamy, I smelled it every sip I took. Black pour. No highlights. Dark tan head was thick and creamy, but dissipated fairly quickly. Good lacing. A lot of the flavors from the nose return in the flavor. Coffee, cocoa, a little milky sweetness. Full bodied and creamy. Moderate carbonation. Slight astringency on sides of mouth. Some alcohol warmth in back of the mouth. One of my top Stouts.....Only if Youngs Oatmeal Stout was still available.

Bottle. Black with a small tan head. A lot of coffee in the aroma also some licorice and dark chocolate. The taste was totally dominated by coffee. (espresso) Also roasted malt, chocolate and licorice. Nice mouthfeel and the aftertaste was long and quite bitter. A very good beer.
