Adored by beer drinkers around the globe who are insistent that it's past noon somewhere in the world, this hearty breakfast stout will start your day right with a healthful jolt of coffee, because at a bountiful 8.3% alcohol, you'll appreciate the caffeine's kick-in-the-butt to help you on your way in circumventing concepts such as "Responsibility" or "Employment." That's right, you can feel good about this morning's nutritional choice with this stout's generous helping of flaked oats, which only complement this black beverage's massive roastiness emerging from the chewy and creamy texture, and as long as we're throwing caution to the wind, why not treat yourself to that little something special, such as the luxurious quantities of bittersweet chocolate that will raise your spirits as you lower your pint, and you can stare danger in the face as you'll all but guarantee that you'll be back in bed before noon!


Note: This recipe requires the brewer to supply 5 oz of coffee and 24 oz baker's chocolate.
