Breaksfast Stout

Source: Ilya Goldberg
Recipe added: 04/28/97

This was my first and so far only attempt at a stout. It kept getting better and better until there was none left. It was very dark, heavy, and chewy. One of my best beers. While it lasted, this "Breakfast Stout" was definately the most important beer of the day. Needless to say, if you don't like coffee, don't bother. Each of the 50+ espressos that went into this beer was lovingly made on a pump espresso machine with freshly ground french roast. In the future, I think I'l use champagne yeast to get the fermentation over with sooner.
