The coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

I just noticed that I had this beer multiple times, but never got around to rating it and it seems because of this beer’s fancy reputation it is quite a shame that it does not form a notch in my belt. Black beer with a nice brown head... to put it shortly as stout as stout gets. Aroma is of what we would call breakfast... coffee, oatmeal, burnt sugar, carmelized sugar, the aforementioned two things on said oatmeal... just dank overall. Dark chocolate and dark coffee go do the taste. And unlike the last rater stout is what’s for breakfast.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2009
Bottled at Monks Café, Wallingatan, Stockholm. Pours out in a rich creamy pale brown head. Rich bitter sweet coffe bean aroma with notes of Muscavado sugar, cinnamon, burnt caramel, caramelized sugar, mint and inky hops. Full-bodied with notes of roasted coffee, brown sugar, fudge, spices, mint add mild yet lingering citrousy hops. Long full finish packed of dark coffee and dark chocolate with undertones of fudge, grass and mint. Tasty stuff, wouldn’t drink it for breakfast, though...

12oz - Finally tracked this down. Pours like two stroke oil, no real head. Roasted marshmallows and campfire on palate. Big roasted notes on palate without an oily linger. Nice.

ppearance is a thick, oily, viscous liquid. Dark as night. The head was about one finger, mocha colored, and thin, disappating into a few islands. When swirling the glass a little this liquid looks extremely thick. The nose is roasted coffee up front and a creamy scent. No trace of alcohol. Very nice. Taste is accurate to the name, a nice sip of a great amount roasted coffee beans, milk, and a medium sweet malty sensation in the background. Leaves a fantastic coffee aftertaste; I wish I had a real coffee that tasted this good. Mouth is good, this isn’t nearly as thick as it looks when pouring it. Carbonation is medium, body is medium. No heat feeling. Very creamy.

A nice one from Founders, my wife loved it and she even asked for more ♂. A stout that enlarge your veneration for Coffea arabica.

With many thanks to DuctTape for gifting me this for my 30th birthday. Note: I’m having this at breakfast time. Appearance: Oil slick black with a rim of brown. Creamy brown head . Aroma: Delicious - coffee, chocolate, smoke, peat, some Christmas pudding notes, cream and vanilla. Flavour: Coffee, cinnamon, smoke, dark chocolate, peat, warming. Lots of creaminess in the mouth feel with a delicious cream and vanilla finish. Everything an Imp stout should be for me. Lovely.

12 ounce bottle that I have had sitting around for a few months. I was extremely excited about this one... I love Founders and I love big Imperial Stouts. This pours a jet black color with a very tiny tan head that arises after the pour. I also noticed that it was fairly thick coming out of the bottle. The aroma is a stout and coffee lovers dream. It consists of a LOT of freshly ground coffee, some nice roasted malt, some faint oatmeal and some subtle cocoa. The taste is also exceptional. It has a ton of coffee and roasted malt with some bitter chocolate and oatmeal. Leaves you wanting more after every drink. It has a medium to heavy mouth feel and is a bit sticky. This is an excellent imperial stout by Founders! This really gets me excited to have my Kentucky Breakfast...

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2009 Wow, one of my all time favorites. Pours deep dark brown. The greatness of this beer starts with the aroma of roasted malt, cofee, choclate, smoke. Taste starts with strong roasted malts, cofee, chocolate, bitterness all in balance and harmony. The flavors remain through the middle and ends with a nice dry bitterness. The taste lingers and prompts me to take the next sip. Drink it close to room temp 60 to 65 degrees to get all the flavors. Serving type: bottle

UPDATED: APR 29, 2010 Jet black with a small dark-brown head that sticks around a little. The aroma is pretty much all coffee with touches of sweet malt and a daaaash of chocolate. The flavor is way upfront coffee with dark chocolate notes garnished with the delicious sweet and sour malty notes we all know to be a high-gravity stout! The luscious creamy mouthfeel is just the icing on the... oatmeal!
