Notes: Our legendary Breakfast Stout returns this year with two epic power-ups: Vermont maple syrup was added right into the brew for a beam of subtle sweetness against the earthy bitterness of barrel-aged Coldbot Coffee beans! As in 2016's batch, this viscous 13.4% beast was aged in bourbon barrels with just a handful of Madagascar vanilla beans and will be finished on cacao nibs and Coldbot Coffee's Salvadorian + Guatemalan coffee beans.

2017 version poured from a bottle into a snifter. Really nicely blended with a little heat in the finish.

2018 bottle properly cellared. Viscous black pour, tiny brown collar. Smell is full and rich with the deep and dark coffee, and chocolate, the bourbon, maple and vanilla are faint. Taste is improved, starts the same as the nose with the dark coffee and chocolate, but bourbon and oak make a warming entrance quickly, providing the maple a way to creep down the spine of the beer, together it is nuanced and dark. Feel is medium thickness, lightly warm, and mostly shaped by the coffee textures. It's good, but I would take CBS any day
