Notes / Commercial Description:
Lefty’s Big Brekkie packs in a quintet of delicious ingredients woven together to amuse the taste buds. Locally roasted coffee and local maple syrup add the necessary touch of a traditional New England breakfast. We include flaked oats for extra creaminess and cocoa nibs for a natural, chocolaty sweetness that lures you in from the aroma to the end of your pint. We had to top it off with bacon, our favorite food, for the ultimate breakfast brew.

Bought a bottle at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow, MA. The beer had a pure black with a thin head and strong aromas of roasted coffee and chocolate. The beer taste followed the nose with a bitter, coffee and chocolate dynamic. The mouthfeel supplemented the beer flavors quite nicely by being very creamy. Overall, this was an awesome beer.

A - Opaque black, small tan head leaves little lacing.
S - coffee, roasted malt, bitter cocoa, faint maple, maybe?
T - Light flavor all around. Coffee, cocoa, maple syrup and there's something else that the bacon may be adding, but I can't quite distinguish.
M - Medium/thin. Low carb. Extremely smooth. Alcohol is well hidden.
O - A good breakfast stout. A novel attempt adding bacon and maple syrup, but I think all the flavors combined get a little muddled. Certainly worth a try as with all Lefty's brews.

Reviewed from notes.

A- Black pour into a pint glass with a light tan-brown head. Foamy texture to the cap and about one finger in size. Decent head retention and just a few patches of lace here and there.

S- Nose is dark and roasty with a definite smoky bacon and fruity yeast aspect. Coffee and cocoa here but not overly strong in general.

T- Again, a pretty strong dark fruit aspect probably from the higher ABV American Ale yeast. Bacon smoke comes out nicely as well as some cocoa, coffee and dark roast malts. Just a tiny hint of maple.

MF- Creamy and moderately thick body. Medium level of carbonation. Some roast bitters in the finish.

Solid stout overall but lacking some of the depth and rich feel that great stouts have.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere localish.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" dark tan head over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Head quickly recedes to the edges, with leggy sheeting bubbles. Aroma is rich roasty oats and some anise.

Taste starts like the nose, sweet chocolate and oatmeal, sedate coffee in the middle, with anise and a touch of alcohol in the close. Mouthfeel is slickery smooth, and drinkability is alright. Wish it had more substance and depth of flavor, for all that's advertised in there.

Pours a one finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Light carbonation and light bodied. Coffee nose and flavor is baked chocolate and coffee, higher ABV, 8.5%, is hidden. $6.95 for a 22oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

A rich chocolate-y brown body with a 1/2 finger of creamy beige head.

Aroma of coffee, toast, dark chocolate, and faint milk chocolate sweetness.

Flavor has some really delicious coffee flavors coming out - smooth, fruity, and lightly peppery - with some malted milk balls, slight oak, and burnt toast. Very very faint suggestions of milk chocolate bar. Very faint smoke.

Feel I noticed off the bat, it's pretty light bodied for a supposedly thick stout. There's a nice nitro-like creaminess, but it's still coming off a bit watery. Busy carbonation. More water. Roasty finish.

Overall, a decent but not great breakfast stout. FBS this ain't. Definitely no maple or bacon to be found anywhere. Although it was a little disappointing, I was happy to try it out.

One of the hidden gems of MA beers, worth your time if you have access to it.
