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.

From a bottle poured black with a small head. Very dry malty flavor with a lasting finish.

Well, they’ve got the name, and description pretty much perfect. It smells, and tastes like a cup of coffee, chilled of course. It pours an opaque black, with a tan head. Like I said, it tastes like a cup of fresh brewed coffee, with some subtle chocolate notes, and malt on the finish. I would say this is my new favorite stout! Very good impression from Founders. Cheers!

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2008 Bottle. Very deep and dark color. A chocolate black with a thing tan head that quickly fades. Smells heavy with coffee. Taste like a high quality roasted coffee with some subtly and tasty chocolate flavors. You can taste the quality that when into making this beer.

Fruitfly (59) - , Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Heavy burnt nose of chocolate grain, roasted barley, and an excessive dose of coffee. The head is very fine and creamy tan. The beer is black. Full body but not as robust as expected--creamy texture but without viscosity. It isn’t bitter and it isn’t sweet: making it disappointingly balanced. Softly carbonated with a long pleasant finish. It’s a nice beer but a bit overrated.

Had this on draft.Poured a beautiful thick black color with a small, thin tan head.The aromas were heavy roasted coffee and light chocolate.Naturally the coffee was very present in the flavor,as well as some chocolate and vanilla,with a great finish as well as some nice lacing.Well done by the folks at Founders.

Bottled. Pours black with traces of dark, dark brown near the edge. Very little head to speak of, more like a very thin tan film. Aroma is amazing - chocolate, coffee, roast, and grain all hitting your brain simultaneously. Taste is similarly complex and perfectly balanced. Finish is a bitter and little boozier than I remember it, but it’s not unwelcome. Creamy texture with little carbonation. Amazing stuff.

12 oz bottle, pours jet black with small head. Aroma of coffee, coffee, and more coffee. Basically that’s it, this is a cup of coffee with alcohol in it. Taste is overwhelmingly coffee, with a touch of bitter chocolate. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. I love the Bourbon version of this better, because it is more varied and complex, as opposed to straight coffee. Not bad.

Pours absolutely black with a tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee. Almost smells like the inside of a coffee house. Flavor is the best cup of coffee you’ve ever had, dark chocolate, nutty, some oatmeal, some milk-sweetness. Been waiting on this for a while, and it was worth it. This is just intense, worth all the hype.
