Better than Guinness, but I prefer Sierra Nevada Stout. Nice dark-chocolate-with-chilis taste. Consistency a bit thin.

If there was a value rating option (which there should be), this beer would be top ten. Sure, a couple Lagunitas bombers will get you drunk, but a 4-pack of breakfast stout is world class.

Finally got one of these in a glass. I might of had expectations to high, due to hype and just my love of a good oatmeal stout. Overall, if it was available in Oregon, I'd pick it up sometime, but having had the KBS and Backwoods Bastard....I'd say this is less dynamic. I am fortunate to have a few more, so I will revise if I find that the problem is me.

Best breakfast stout I have drank so far. It's like hot oatmeal and pancakes and coffee in the morning. Taste is just a little to bitter to me and price for 4 is like 10 bucks lil high. But I love it not to pass it up
