OMG!!! I dont know how the canadians got soo lucky to get this beer named after them, but it makes the saying true "Beer, so much more than a breakfast drink.". I could literally roll out of bed on a sunday and make a meal of this with bacon and eggs. Tried this on tap at the Sugar Maple as a special treat from Dave at Founders. Thanks Dave!

Sampled at GABF on 9-18-2010. Not a coffee drinker, so am sure my rating is off. Comes black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and a bit of maple. Tastes of roasted coffee, very sweet. If you like coffee think this would be a must try.

craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2012 750ml bottle on 3/30/11. black pour with a 1+ finger tan head. coffee, chocolate and light bourbon nose with some sweet sugars. med to full body with big chocolate notes followed by maple syrup, bourbon and coffee. very smooth throughout. a sipper. the beer excels through the body. finishes strong with sweet malts, maple syrup, light oak and bourbon and chocolate / coffee notes. very good - but very sweet and somewhat overpowering... great beer but overhyped.

sample from the pitcher @ GABF on 9/17/10. pitch black pour with a slim tan head. big coffee nose with some light whiskey notes. medium body with big coffee notes throughout coated with whiskey and light maple sweetness. big whiskey barrel finish with more coffee and big roasted malts. so glad I got to try this one!

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2010
On tap at Blue Dog, Chalfont. Off the bat I am shocked that immediately I dont like it as much as the KBS, because it is not as complex. The aroma has the smoke, coffee, and obvious maple syrup notes. The perfect appearance is dark chocolate color with an awesome creamy dark cappuccino head on top. The flavor has the smoke, coffee, and nice not oversweetened maple flavor from the barrels. It is delicous as expected.

Pours black with a small brown head. Decent lacing. The aroma is unmistakeably Breakfast Stout, with mellow maple in the background. The flavors work well together, with the maple complementing the robust coffee and roastiness. The wood is a lot more mellow than in the KBS, which is nice, and adds more complexity without compromising any flavors. Great stout.

Sampled at GABF on 9/17/2010. This Imperial Stout pours a dark black color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee and some maple. A medium to full bodied Imperial Stout. The malts are chocolate, coffee, vanilla and maple. The hops are herbal. Good carbonation. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. The finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3fourths (9203) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 draft. deep black, small brown head. moderately dry and bitter/chalky bakers chocolate in the nose, medium roast, medium generic bourbon/maple/molasses character, mild oak, mild alcohol. pleasantly decadent and soft; well mashed, mildly syrupy, moderately dry, and seems to have a small amount of barrel oxidation but it works win the low alcohol and medium to heavy chocolate syrup and generic sweet whiskey/maple character. firm body, enjoyable texture. well-made.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2010
GABF. Black with nice tan head. Lots of whiskey fumes in aroma, roasted chocolate, soil, big coffee. Big aggressive whiskey chocolate upfront, strong bitter bite at end. A little too much whiskey all around, no maple to speak of. Super oily. Not as good as KBS.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Sampled at the Great American Beer Festival on September 16, 2010. Dense, black colored body with a medium brown head. Awesome, serious aroma of bourbon/wishey/alcohol/wood. Soft and silky... so smooth - I dont know how they do it. This beer is pretty darned divine.
