Waited a long time to try this, and completely worth the wait. I prefer my stouts with coffee and chocolate notes, sans bourbon, and this, to my palate, is as close to perfection as I can imagine. Top notch.

Intense milk chocolate flavors combined with some roasted coffee. This is a great overall beer.

Great beer, but I find the coffee flavor to be a hair too much for my personal tastes. Still solid.

Pitch black in appearance, with strong coffee notes in the nose; this stout is about as good as it gets. Creamy mouthfeel and a powerful yet delicate balance of coffee and roasted malts. This beer certainly holds its own. You can drink the strongest IPA known to man, crack this Breakfast Stout open, and forget what Cascade or Citra hops even taste like… And by this I mean, it is powerful enough to look right in the face of an overly hopped beer and tell it to shut up and sit down. Don't get me wrong, I love a good IPA, but the powerful taste this beer brings is unforgettable and undeniable.
