The coffee loverís 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.

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.

Iíve 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.

Very dark black in color with a thin chocolate head. Great looking viscous black beer. Lovely aroma; at first the aroma is a bit woody, and then you get that sweet chocolate coffee aroma. It is not hard to smell very pungent beer. Nice thick sweet chocolate taste with a strong coffee after taste. This is comparable to Terrapin Wake & Bake with a bit less of the dominating coffee taste. Best part is the thick chocolate taste followed by the coffee with the bitter finish. Love this beer. Has a complex aroma and flavor. Great beer with great flavors. Canít wait to try the Kentucky Breakfast. Strong stout. One of the best.

Pours deep black with plenty of brown head that slowly dissipates. This beer is almost all coffee. Both the aroma and the flavor are full of roasty coffee notes. Besides the coffee is nice chocolatey sweetness with some oatmeal. Full bodied. Hides the alcohol quite well. Nicely done.

Very very dark/black opaque brown. with about an 3/4 inch of brown head. Strong coffee aromas with rich roasted malts and chocolate also coming through nicely. A strong coffee flavor joined by chocolate, caramel, roasted malts, oatmeal. Flavor is slightly bitter overall. Smooth and creamy texture, light carbonation, and a slightly dry finish. This beer is all about the coffee. A wonderful breakfast stout. I really want some more.

On tap at Three Cellars. Flavor is smooth coffee and roasted malt. Very nice oatmeal body and feel. A great Stout.
