3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2010 black with small bits of floating sediment under a huge whipped brown head. aroma of dark and milk chocolate, coffee, maple, cola. flavor is more bitter than expected. i always figured this beer would be sweet. chocolate and bitter raw coffee bean is rounded out with a floral hoppy finish. medium bodied...even a little light. not as impressed as the rest. too much coffee and kind of over carbonated.

Amazing beer! Pours black with tan head. Huge coffee nose and taste yields lots more rich coffee flavours, dark chocolate, nice bitter finish. Easy drinking Imperial, it went down fast. It went great with some dark chocolate. Thanks Dan for this one!

12oz bottle thanks to corby112. Pours a rich dark brown, almost black. Nose is massive coffee and oatmeal. Fantastic smelling beer. Rich thick body but a little watery on the backend. Big chocolate up front. Full oaty, grainy middle with a slightly watery huge roast coffee finish. Awesome beer and it really is a breakfast stout. I actually found this more drinkable than the Mikkeller (BGB).

Bottle pours black with a tannish head. Big coffee aroma with a bit of sourness too. Sweetbody with a good amount of coffee but not overbearing. Slight slickness in the mouthfeel. Burnt sugar and coffee bitterness at the end. Nice beer and easy drinking.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle->snifter: pours a small, diminishing, dark brown head that exhibits good lacing atop a ruby body. Aroma of caramel and coffee. The body is light, texture creamy, showing no carbonation and having a bitter finish. The flavor’s duration is average, lightly sweet, acidic, and bitter, with some sour milk characteristics. A truly fine beer.

My first week back from a medical leave and the bar has Breakfast Stout on draft. Boo-YAH! I missed the rush to try Founders imperial stout when it first came out. Man, I missed out. Full bodied stout that hits you with flavors of coffee, chocolate, and oats blended perfectly together. Drinkable, enjoyable and a masterpiece of a brew.

the commercial description is bang on. this brew knocks you over with coffee and it truly impresses with every sip. It has the strongest coffee aroma I’ve ever experienced in a beer. This also carries through in the flavour. It is soooo smooth and easy to drink. No alcohol noticeable Although it may lack the complexity of dark lord it is a truly great beer, one of my favourite imperial stouts.
