12 oz bottle 2009 vintage, I prefer my Breakfast Stout un-aged. Pours a moderately viscous black color with a creamy brown foam that is tight-bubbled and long lasting. Lacing is wonderful as well, stouts do not get much better looking than this.
Aroma is fairly coffee-centric but displays enough chocolate and Tootsie Roll maltiness to keep it from being one-dimensional. I like the fact that it is a very clean smelling stout, there is not much in the way of fruitiness or bready yeast to get in the way of the coffee and chocolatey goodness.
The coffee flavors are delicious and fresh...even though I do not normally drink the stuff, the flavor is very appealing. There is an oatmeal-esque smoothness and creaminess that works very well. Just enough sweetness to offset the bitter aspect of the roasty malts and hops. ABV is rediculously well hidden and the beer is dangerously drinkable. This is one of the best beers in the world, IMHO. I wish I had a pickline of this into my veins.

12oz into a snifter, bottled 11/09/13
Pours pitch black with a finger of mocha colored foam. Good retention and lacing, no carbonation coming up from the sides of the glass
Smells of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolates, some vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, and finishes with some alcohol. Everything comes together pretty well
Taste is with the nose pretty well, strong upfront coffee and dark chocolate along with figs, cherry, and other dark fruits. Vanilla and toffee on the finish, ending with a splash of alcohol
Feel is moderately bitter with a heavy body. Finishes pretty dry, alcohol concealed well but enjoyably present
Overall glad I got to try this. Three more sitting in the cellar
