4.65/5 rDev +2.9%
Bottled, served in a weizen glass
A - Dark brown with a 2 finger fluffy tan head with excellent sticky lacing and great head retention.
S - Flaked oats, oatmeal, chocolate, cocoa, a touch of roasted coffee.
T - A fantastic blend of oatmeal smoothness and rich chocolate tones. Sweet, with a balanced sense of alcohol and notes of coffee, milk, and espresso.
M - Unbelievably smooth. Maybe the best mouthfeel of any beer I have ever had. Full body, moderate carbonation. Smooth as silk.
O - This is the PERFECT imperial oatmeal stout. I could drink this any day of the year. Got to be one of my favorite bottled beers, can't wait to share this with my dad. I might pour this into my bowl of Count Choculua tomorrow morning...

A- Thin khaki head that retained throughout the experience.
S- Smelled like black coffee with slight chocolate hints.
T- A touch of chocolate nibs, and then a dominated flavor of coffee. Delicious.
M- Medium mouth feel. Slight carbonation, but not enough to keep it from being smooth.
O- Unbelievable stout. I was trying to decide between this and another stout on the menu at Tyler's Taproom, and the waiter told me, "No question, Breakfast stout." I took his advice, and I'm glad. Absolutely delicious, and highly recommended, especially for coffee drinkers.

4.18/5 rDev -7.5%
A- Half inch thin mocha head on a dark brown body. Relatively good head retention, cap and collar left throughout. Spider lacing quite apparent.
S- Initially coffee notes but then come the sweet chocolate undertones.
T- Cocoa and java in the reverse order of the smell. First you're hit with chocolate and then a long lasting coffee bitterness as an aftertaste. Would guess in the 8 to 9% range. Tasty.
M- Smooth, medium-thick mouthfeel. Low, tiny-bubbled carbonation. Overall mouthfeel on Breakfast Stout is just great.
D/O- One of my first true craft beer loves. After over a thousand craft beers, this still is top tier for it's style. Thanks 4DAloveofSTOUT for this long time ago had but never review!
