The Breakfast Stout is pretty much all of my favorite things brewed into one beer. Chocolate (bitters & imported), oatmeal, and coffee (Sumatra and Kona). This dark beauty definitely has a coffee aroma, but the flavor dominates with big, bold chocolate. The head on this beer is fluffy and creamy. Breakfast Stout is really a perfect combination. The coffee flavor isn't completely overwhelming, and I find it easy to drink (but it's so delicious I sip since I want it to last forever!).
D got me Videri Peppermint Chocolate bars (Videri is a local Raleigh chocolate shop!) in my stocking for Christmas. I'm not a big chocolate eater, but I've been hoarding these babies (yeah, that's crushed peppermint on top/bottom). What a perfect beer pairing...dark chocolate with a Double Chocolate, Coffee, Oatmeal Stout. Heaven.
