Not much to say other than that I think this stuff should come with an additional warning about the caffeine content. I drank 3 pints and didn't get to sleep until 4am and remained buzzed into the next morning. It is outstanding. It reminds me of Old Rasputin with a huge hit of dark roast coffee. But, be careful with this stuff or you will regret it!

The name says it all. A stout with lots of flavor. The largest note is that of coffee which greatly describes the finish. There is a slight sweetness. Rich dark color. Smooth and very drinkable. Not boozy at all. Would definitely drink this again, possibly with a doughnut.

Poured in to a glass at a cool temperature, nice dark color but did not get the head I had anticipated and not much lacing at all. Smell was just what I expected and more. Malty chocolate, coffee and just a hint of oats. Taste was full of chocolate and coffee and lingered just long enough to get to the next mouthful. I'm a Pilsner drinker and that won't change, but on those occaisions when I feel like a change I will definetly have Breakfast Stout at the top of the list.
