Vocation ‘Breakfast Club 2.0’ Blueberry Waffle Breakfast Stout

  • “Seeing as you enjoyed the first round so much – how about seconds? Presenting Breakfast Club 2.0, remixed to be bigger, thicker and fruitier than ever. Hold on to your belt buckles, this one’s a proper feast.”

Glassware: Snifter.

Appearance: Pitch black with a thumb of terracotta head. It slowly peels back and forms a halo. Beautiful cascading lace is left on the glass.

Aroma: Avery alluring. We’re aware of stating the bleeding obvious but it literally smells like blueberry waffles…with additions of icing sugar, caramel, vanilla, puree, spice and cake mix. There’s definitely something sweet and sugary in here but we can’t quite put our fingers on it. Pretty nice aroma though.

Flavour: Nice contrast upfront. Getting the tart blueberries against a light roasty malt backdrop. Chocolate notes here and there, a hint of vanilla sweetness and doughy cake mix. Then it all seems to just fall away. The finish is weak…a flutter of blueberry and doughy sweetness but that’s it.

Mouthfeel: Thin, oily and slippery. Way too lean for the style. Mild-medium body. 6.9% ABV is reasonably well buried.

Overall: Not huge fans but then again it ain’t a bad drop. It just lacks body and the lengthy finish we come to expect from pastry stouts.
