A: Pours a pitch black color with a fingers worth of brown head

S: Lots of roasted malts and coffee, along with some dark chocolate

T: Lots of coffee and roasted malts, along with both dark and milk chocolate and a touch of alcohol. Definitely coffee focused

M: Full bodied with low-moderate carbonation. Creamy from the oats

O: The ultimate coffee stout. A must try if you're into coffee or stouts in general

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.

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!
