The coffee lovers consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

12 oz bottle. Pours a black color with a thin deep tan head that laces to the bottom. Aomas of coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, malt, and the woods after a rain. Flavor fallows suit with a nice warm bitter finish. Big body, soft carb, syrupy texture, and dry warm alcohol feel. Not a fan of coffee in beer, but this one is damn fine.

Pours a dark dark brown with a nice head. Strong aroma about equal parts chocolate and coffee. Nice sweetness.

Finally the infamous Breakfast stout touches my pallette. Made this my 60th rate (couldn’t wait for 100). The aroma was strong coffee. Poured thick black with a two colored light and dark brown head - Lacing sticks to the side of the glass - mouthfeel is thick and just the right amount of carbonation - taste is coffee roast with a slight bitter bite, chocolate and oatmeal. Very nice! The aftertaste is my favorite part of the imperial stouts and this did not let me down. Creamy taste lingered forever reminding me to take another sip. this brew is full of flavors and complexity that my pallette cannot yet comprehend. I would like to compare this to the Expedition Stout to see what I like better. Definately a great brew to keep on hand - can’t wait for the Bourbon Aged to come out!

Bottle. black with slight tan head. Aroma = Starbucks espresso. Creamy but bitter chocolate / coffee flavor. Definitely cannot tell this baby is 8+%. Great effort.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2010 On draft at Chappys for Dayton Beer Week. Founders brought down a special early release. Dark black with a frothy beige head. Smells like a handful of fresh coffee beans. The strongest black coffee aroma of any beer. Flavor is dominated by black roasted coffee beans but has a touch of chocolate that comes through. Full bodied with a soft palate. This is just amazing. Better than I remembered the bottle version being.

12many (277) - Alaska, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Bottle. Black with a small tan head. Straight up coffee aroma. Flavor is bitter coffee with a slight sweetness. Good mouthfeel, light carbonation, and long aftertaste. If you’re into drinking cold coffee this is for you.

Nephilium (1790) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Nice strong coffee aroma starts this beer off. Pours an opaque black, with just a sad ring of tan head. The flavor is where this really shines. Notes of coffee, roast, a bit of chocolate, and all with a nice full mouthfeel. About the only thing that hurts with this beer is the price for it, but it is a great stout, and I’ve tossed some in the cellar to see how it holds up.

I love this beer and it delivers consistently. Ominously dark with a mild head retention of dark brown. Pleasantly aromatic with bold notes of kona that bitters the tongue. Something that will fall into the very well crafted category as it is georgeous in appearance and elegant in delivery. Awesome.

Capa (3202) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Black with a tan head. Strong molasses, coffee, cocoa, and roasted malts. Flavor is of lightly burnt coffee, chocolate, toffee, and some molasses. A little thinner than expected, still full, though. An excellent stout full of strong coffee.

Plovmand (8233) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2008
Bottle from trade with SQNfan - thanks mate! A pitch black beer with a creamy foreverlasting mocca coloured head. Awesome! As soon as I open the bottle cocoa and coffee hits my nose. In the glass its doubled and its mixed with a pleasant roastiness. Awesome! In the mouth its creamy and smooth. Awesome! The flavour is not as in-your-face as you see with lots of american Impy stouts. The coffee is very dominating with chocolate and roasted malts at the side of it. A bitter espresso like finish ends this beauty of a beer. Awesomeness!
