COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Aroma: it honestly smells like a bacon and egg breakfast w/ Tobasco sauce to me, I dont care if this beer is mostly supposed to reflect coffee/chocolate flavors, this beer truly captures the essence of my Sunday breakfasts: 2 eggs, sunny side up, smothered with Tobasco verde sauce and black pepper, 3 strips of maple smoked bacon, two whole wheat toast w/ butter and cherry jelly for soaking up the yoke, strong black coffee (no cream or sugar), and a small glass of O.J., yup, thats what Im reminded of when I smell this brew; Appearance: the body is standard stout, coffee brown bordering on black, but the head is exactly as described on the bottle, a frothy cinnamon color that lingers after the pour; Taste: strong hashbrown/skillet, but also the roasty coffee and dark chocolate that this brew is known for, heavy smoke also, again, just like the aroma, the taste truly captures the essence of a breakfast; Palate: decent bitter lingers, which helps remind you that youre drinking a beer as opposed to eating a meal; Overall: I can honestly say that I loved this beer before my colleagues on RB took a liking to it too, so my rating is in no way influenced by its tremendous popularity, Ive been raving about this stout to my family and friends, and, except for one person who is not a fan of coffee, everyone has agreed that its either one of the best stouts theyve ever had, or its at least one of the better ones theyve had in a while, enjoy!

Estebanik (1041) - Lublin, POLAND - APR 28, 2017
Piana beżowa, bardzo trwała, drobna, całkiem przyzwoicie osadza się na szkle. W aromacie przede wszystkim kawa, palone słody, trochę ciasta czekoladowego. W smaku dalej palone, mocno kawowe, dość wysoko wysycone. Odczucie ciała raczej niskie. Na posmaku dalej palone ziarno. Po ogrzaniu i lekkim odgazowaniu w smaku dochodzi gorzka czekolada. Alkohol oczywiście niewyczuwalny. Trzeba przyznać, że po blisku 15 latach od pierwszej oceny na ratebeer, breakfast stout już takiego wrażenia nie robi, nawet jeżeli przyrwnać go do extra stoutw.

Almost black with a small but persistant brown head. Good lacing and low carbonation. Aroma: Dark chocolate, oat, espresso, vanilla and malt. Sweet with a medium light roasted bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TEJA (2938) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2017
Bottle from systembolaget Sweden. Short fluffy brown head. Clear almost completely black color. Very intense aroma of coffee chocolate and roasted malt. Sweet and chocolate taste with a big body. A smooth bitterness for such a big beer.

I had big expectation about this beer, but it couldnt meet mine. taste is dominated by coffee and dark chocolates, but it begins to be bored after first sips. on the other hand its really quality brew.

Great stout, great body. But a little to highly hopped for my preference. Tastes great on nitro. Perfect for someone who likes stouts and ipas. Willows SF.
