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.

High octane dark chocolate coffee stout. Goes down good and smooth. Great creamy/frothy large light brown head with excellent lacing. Smelled like it tasted, dark chocolate coffee, I thought the coffee stuck around longer then other stouts at the end, but still good finish.

Silky smooth and goes down easy for such a dark brew. Explodes with flavor and leaves a nice creamy finish. This along with the Fullers London Porter are in my top three...

Pours a dark black color with a nice beige head. Huge wonderful chocolate aromas along with some roasted malts. Flavor is of chocolate mocha, roasted malt,coffee and a touch of vanilla. Nicely balanced as well. What a great stout!

Bottle. Pours black with a touch of red and very thin light brown head. Aroma is Chocolate and coffee, a bit grainy and roasty. A hint of tobacco. Flavor is nice and roasty but not burnt, plenty of mocha. Very typical stout characteristics and not particularly unique, what makes it stand out is the remarkable balance that most stouts do not have. Full bodied and full of flavor but neither harsh nor cloying, it just hits that middle ground and makes for a great, enjoyable stout. Silky smooth with low carbonation.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2015 Another top brew, courtesy of Adrian, sampled on draft too. Dark pour with light brown head. Chocolate cake and bread aroma, with coffee and hops. Full bodied with rich coffee and plenty of grain flavor. Oat smoothness and a chocolate taste comes into it too. A dash of peppy hop tingle completes the aftertaste. Another fine creation from Founders.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 On Tap at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor. Pours that great black color with a thin tan head that can only mean an imperial stout. Smell of coffee and a little chocolate, some oatmeal texture throughout. Sweet malty falvor, nice strong taste that lasts and lasts. Great complex flavor and palate.

Black pour with small tan head. Nice aroma of coffee, chocolate, some malts. Flavor of coffee and spices, think they slipped in some sugar or cinnamon granules for a gritty taste, but good. Strong and remarkable flavor overall.

12oz. Wow, what a good breakfast this was. Sludges to the bottom of the glass with a black oily body and tan head. Nose is mostly roasted malt, chocolate, earth and a bit of a grainy nuance. Body is almost overwhelmingly a triple shot cafe au lait. I would refer to this as an Imperial Milk Stout. This is a great beer, hides the alcohol very well.

tmoreau (2975) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2009
On tap at Lunar Brewing-snifter served. Pours a thick, black/brown hue, with a foamy, tan head that reduces to a small ring but leaves some thick, clingy lace. The nose is dry, mocha, and dark roasted coffee. The flavor is a more intense version of the aroma, if that is possible... hop bitterness, espresso, and cocoa. Full bodied with a nice, creamy mouthfeel...like milk on your cocoa puffs, washed down with a cup of strong java!

12 oz bottle. Pours black with almost no head, a slight tan ring around the glass. Huge coffee nose, rich with some chocolate backing it up. Very roasty, coffee/espresso flavor. Nice bitterness to balance this out, caramel sweetness apparent toward the end of the flavor. Low carb, drying and acidity from the coffee and the roastiness, silky mouthfeel.
