4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a cervoise goblet.
A: Pours a jet black with a very dark brown bubbly head. Dissipates into thin film that leaves a great lace down the glass.
S: Big coffee upfront with a nice sweet chocolate. Roasted malts and a nice toasted cracker taste.
T: Again with the coffee and I love it. Coffee grounds with a semi-sweet bakers chocolate and toasted malt throughout the middle. There is a little bitterness from the hops at the backend, but it finishes very sweet.
M: Very smooth and delectably creamy on the finish. Little bitter chocolate on the finish that mixes with the coffee. Perfectly carbed as well.
O: Why must these be so good and only sold through the fall? Just like KBS this is an amazing beer and I canít wait two weeks until the CBS release. Iíll just leave it at the notes I made when I was finished. "Yeah, awesome."

I normally like beer cold but as this one warms up the oatmeal flavor comes out, the coffee gives it a good finish

I really enjoyed this beer. I have had it before, and I will have it again. Absolute great nose and initial taste. This was also my 1st attempt at a review: http://wp.me/p5urG4-eG.

This was the first Founderís beer I ever had, close to 10yrs ago. A desert beer that isnít so sweet that you only want one. Great roasty malt with just the right amount of chocolate and coffee. In fact itís a good light dinner beer as much as it is a desert beer. I canít remember if Iíve had one for Breakfast. Probably.

Coffee flavor is to over powering for me. Still awesome I just wish it was just a hint of coffee.

This beer is beyond description! It is really close to perfection. The liquid is pitch black with a tiny brown lacy head. Taste is stunning with coffee, a little bit of sweet but just the perfect pinch of sugar you would put in your morning coffee. This one is absolutely on my personnal imperial stouts top 3 list this year! Stunning beer!

Dark black pour under a thin dark tan head, sticky and sweet, good coffee taste gives it that bitter

10 Oz tap. Black with a brown head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate, with some fall fruit. Flavor is mild sweet at first worth less of coffee, baldness nicely with roasted malt and some alcohol. Full body with a creamy mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, not to complex, but really delicious.

What can you say about Founderís Breakfast Stout that hasnít already been said? Aroma is pure coffee and sweet malt. Pours black with very thin almond head. Taste is well balanced and delicious. Great beer!
