COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oatmeal and 20 pounds of fresh roasted coffee from the Ugly Mug Cafe contribute to a mildly chalky espresso character balanced by a rich, sweet, creamy maltiness. coffee finish dissolves into chocolate with a slight roasty bitterness.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bitter sour thin flat still coffe-laden liquid resembling beer. Aroma is all coffee that’s been laying on the heating element too long. Unfortunately not good.

Dark brown, with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, and sugar. Flavor is coffee, sugar, and roasted malt. Body is way too thin.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle: Pours a dark brown with a very small tan head. Aroma, roasty, coffee, chocolate, earthy. Flavor, roasted coffee notes, some chocolate, dry roasty finish. There is some buttery notes, it’s on the thin side as well.

Silphium (3161) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Dark brown body with ruddy highlights at the edges, thin tan head. Aroma is mostly coffee and roasted malts. Rather dry, plain body of coffee beans. Soft, rather thin. Light sweetness. Seems everyone has picked up on the "Breakfast Stout" theme, but Founders reigns supreme (and, I admit, I’m biased).

12 oz bottle, pours deep brown and nearly flat. Coffee and roast and sweet aroma, slightly phenolic and artificially acidic. Overly acidified and somewhat medicinal, not a very good coffee stout. Definitely feels like extract was added, although really not bad.

Tap. Black body, tan head, espresso nose. Coffee, chocolate, some toffee (!) notes, thin body but good flavors.

gwpom (295) - Akron, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2007
On tap at Pizza Plant. Black as a stout should be, brown head, I really liked this stout. Not overpowering, smooth, yet full of flavor, and excellent with dinner. Not as stout as a stout is expected to be, still had enough body and flavor to please me and go back for seconds.

demitriustown (1059) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2007
12 oz bottle: Aroma is very high on coffee, mainly spent coffee grindings. It smells like more a batch of iced or chilled coffee than a brew all the same. A little bit of detectable malts in this brew as well. Pours a pitch black with little or no head. Taste has a definite coffee backing. It tastes very similar to the last batch of Founders Breakfast Stout. All coffee and nothing else that made the brew good. I’m glad I rated that brew when it was half-way decent. This brew on the other hand is average. Too much of an coffee taste for me. Palate is almost coffee like with a coffee aftertaste in the brew. Overall, I like a good cup of joe, but this is too much like one to be really enjoyable as a beer. Decent, but not great at all.
