COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You’ve 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. We’re 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.

This is probably one of the best beers you could ever hope to enjoy, hints of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and whatever other incredible flavors Founders decided to add. This is the best beer (in my opinion) they have to offer.

Pours a deep black with a dark tan head. great lacing. Huge nose of coffee and dark chocolate. Thick body and feel, silky smooth. Bigtime flavor with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, hops, alcohol, and oatmeal. This is a serious stout, and having it for breakfast would make lunchtime into bedtime. Bravo.

Bottle. Pour was dark black with a little brown head. Aroma was rich, smoky and a little chocolaty. Flavor was that full bodied coffee, vanilla, smooth malts and a little spicy on the finish. A very good imperial coffee stout, but I’m not sure if I agree that it should be rated as high as it currently is

12oz bottle courtesy of styles. Good chocolate and oatmeal aromas. Black body with tan head. Had a good creamy chcoclate flavor with some oatmeal in the mix. Smooth enjoyable stout on the palate. Thanks Chris.

downender (6718) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle. Almost black in colour, with a tight tan head. Massive black coffee aroma with a touch of bitter chocolate in the background. Flavour was also dominated by espresso coffee, with some charred malts, more chocolate and and a bitter, warming finish. A great stout for those who enjoy coffee.

Inky black, beautiful pour. So much coffee on the nose and on the finish, that just lingers forever. I have a lot of this socked away and will have to continue revisiting it to see how it ages.

I’ve been waiting to drink this for a few months now... we finally popped the caps at the February 27, 2009 club meeting. Has a solid black color with a light brown head, aroma of coffee and syrup. I see why they call this a breakfast stout. Light mouthfeel, but full on the palate. Reminds me of something... anyway, excellent beer!

black pour, nice, cool, intense coffee aromas, bit of oats, baking chocolate. Roastification to the maximum. I love how intense the coffee is without being overbearing. very special. very drinkable

Looks like someone squeezed a squid into my glass. Thanks James. Aroma is oatmeal, phenomenal roast aspect, and 100% cocoa chocolate. Flavor is overrun by roasty malted barley. Coffee follows in at a close second and offers complete domination of flavors. Balance, however, is expert and mediated nicely. Palate is thick, rich and oily. Big ups to Founders.

pours a pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is heavy with oats, coffee, bitter chocolate, and cream- very nice. Flavor is uber-roasty, lots of creaminess, coffee, and definitely the oats as well. Really great coffee stout, superb palate shifts from the bitter qualities to the smooth, sweet creamy finish. Excellent impy.
