COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Youíve got to love coffee to truly appreciate this phenomenal brew. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and sweetened imported chocolates, Sumatra and Kona coffee. Weíre actually not sure if this is some type of coffee cake or a beer. Either way you can drink this ale with a fork. Breakfast Stout has an intense fresh roasted coffee nose toped with a cinnamon colored frothy head that seems to never fade and makes you wish breakfast could last forever.

12oz bottle into a snifter, at room temp. 1/2" khaki head, deep rich brown, almost black, color. Faint chocolate aroma. Intense chocolate/coffee flavor, delicious. To be savored.

330ml bottle served in Duvel tulip glass. A: Pours deep black color forming a big creamy, solid and persistent beige head. Beautiful. Lots of lingering lacings are formed and left in the glass S: A chocolate bomb. Strong notes of dark chocolate and roasted malts. Also some notes of coffee, vanilla and wood T: Follows the nose: Strong notes of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and oak. Notes of vanilla. A bit sweet and molasses upfront followed by the pleasant 60IBU bitterness M: Heavy creamy molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Roasted malts aftertaste O: Great drinkability. For sure one of the best Imperial Stouts Iíve ever had. Smooth and molasses. Delicious [ BA Review @ 2/18/2012 ]

I donít much care for coffee as coffee, but put it into a beer and Iím happy as a clam. Tons of coffee flavor, with not a whole lot else, but thatís ok. Tastey. RERATE 12/24/2004: Had a pitcher of this with friends the other week, now that Iíve been on RB a while, I think I appreciate this stuff even more. The chocolate and coffee notes are perfectly balanced, right amount of sweetness.

This ones perfect. It is exactly what it say it is. Massive chocolate aroma with coffee and sweet toasty bready malt. Just amazing smelling. Taste is just perfect. You get the sweet chocolate followed by coffee and roasty malt. Itís one of a kind. This one would be delicious for breakfast. Iíve enjoyed a lot of stouts, but this one I can honestly say has been the best most delicious one I have had in a long time. I cannot find one thing I donít like about this. I highly recommend picking this up, itís a great stout.

Black. Roasty, some chocolate and strong coffee aroma. Very bitter, long palate with coffee notes. By far the best of the Founders bunch. Not bottled though, so go straight to the source.
