COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Youíve 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. Weíre 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.

Poured black with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and coffee. Flavor follows suit with a rich thick chocolate flavor and a sweetened coffee with a bit of roasty bitterness. Nice thick mouthfeel..

Black with a big dark brown head. Coffee aroma. Thick and creamy body. Flavor of roast and coffee with some bitterness at the finish.

05.07.05 12oz bottle at Heavyweight open house. Again, I have no idea who to thank for this gem of a beer. Thick, black, coating, unctuous on the pour. Yum! Aromas and flavors are nearly identical in this rich brew. Burnt marshmallow, thick old coffee, thick young coffee, thick coffee with cream, thick coffee with cream and burnt marshmallow. Creamy throughout. Soft body. Glam. Bitter finish clears up the oily and coating palate. Rad beer, itís no wonder itís rated so highly (4.23 average at time of my rating). Thanks to whoever shared this wonder!

Oh, yeah. I was jonesing for a good stout and this delivered. Definitely the darkest stout Iíve had in a while. The viscosity of the brew is evident from the first pour. It pours oily and seems to be flat until the bubbles gradually make it to the top and form a thin, consistent, brown head. The aroma is very roasty, with a bit of bitter black chocolate in with the coffee. The flavor is very reminiscent of coffee and thereís a bit of charcoal in there as well. Itís surprisingly dry considering the thickness. Loved it.

Pours black with a small brown head. Big coffee aroma. Taste is black coffee with hints of chocolate trying to sneak through. Very bitter, almost too much. If the coffee was toned down a bit and the chocolate came out a little more this beer would be awesome. Still very enjoyable.

Ughsmash (7137) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2005 12 oz bottle. This one poured a most certain black with light wisps and a ring of medium-brown head. Heavily-roasted aroma of rich milk and dark chocolates and an awesome fresh coffee presence. Both the roasted coffee and chocolate were ever-present on the tastebuds, and there was a bit of nutmeg around the edges. Mouthfeel was extra smooth and coating, and the alcohol was very well hidden. Finish was long and full of burnt chocolate and espresso malts, with an accompanying bitterness. Went down extra smoothly. Great brew!

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 My first reaction to this was a visceral stream of obscenities. Black body with a thin but lasting head the color of coal slag. Aroma is huge fresh espresso. Flavor is massive coffee, sticky sweet malt, roasted grains. Not a big fan of real chocolate in stout, but the coffee and bitterness are tough enough to make it work here. Makes me want to add a bit of vodka and cream and call it a white russian. Hey, thatís not a bad idea. Note: doesnít age particularly well.

Aroma is like someone dumped Hersheyís chocolate syrup into a cup of expresso, taste is rich chocolate mocha with a little bitterness in aftertaste. Agreed by my entire group, that it was the best beer we had the the Milwaukee Beer Baronís festival. It made all the other stouts taste thin. So far Founderís is my favorite newbrewery for 2005. Just wish I could find their Devil Dancer in Wisconsin

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Just a spectacular stout...rich roasted vanilla/coffee/caramel/chocolate/espresso/oatmeal/ fruit....and on and on and on...The mouthfeel is a little thin surprisingly, yet that works for me...Iím not so overwhelmed and sated by one of these babies...Thank God, because Iíve got three more waiting to follow the way the first one went. I am beginning to really keep my eyes on this brewery...so many of their entries are worthwhile. (Ratebeer message me, guys, and Iíll let you know where to send my "Thank You")

Pours dark black and thick with a thin chocolate brown head. Aromas of oatmeal bread, chocolate, coffee and raisins, not overpowering. Bready chocolate flavor with a great roasty taste that rises into your nose from the back of your throat. Strong coffee-bitter finish coats the back of your tounge. Full, oily body. Not sure Iíd want it for breakfast, but was perfect for an after dinner dessert. Thanks to EyedrinkAle for the in-person trade.
