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.

Bottle. It’s not just for breakfast anymore. Pours thick and black with a thin brown head. Huge espresso aroma that may overpower anything else going on. The espresso is not as strong in the flavor and chocolate and molasses come through. This is really nice. In fact, the next time I go to my favorite BYOB brunch spot, I am ditching the Bloody Mary’s and bringing this.

This offering from Founder’s is all that I expected and more. It pours onyx black leaving a creamy tan head that is sticky, and clings to the glass. The nose is fantastic roasted coffee beans, creamy vanilla under tones, and a warm inviting presence of alcohal. The taste on the palate is very nice, creamy, milky, it starts bitter, roasted espresso is very present. You can taste a toffee sweetness, also some bittersweet chocolate is infused in this brew, it then finishes syrup thick that coats the tongue. I love this brew it just solidifies my love for the American Stout.

(bottle) Pours an oily black with almost no head initially, although a light brown head forms when finished. Aroma is black coffee. Flavor is bitter black coffee. I didn’t notice much chocolate. Hops finish noticable as it warms. I love coffee, and drink it black, but I’m underwhelmed.

[bottle] Looks beautiful, smells like COFFEE.. really nice coffee. Taste is massive: chocolate, coffee, kind of nutty oats. The flavors last for a really long time.. giving way to fine coffee/chocolate and a slight bitterness. This is a wonderful beer- I could definitely drink this for breakfast.

Outstanding brew! So dark with a nice dark khaki head with some orangish tint. Aroma is of coffee, spice and malt. Flavor is a punch in the mouth of dark fruit, burnt malt and coffee with spice undertones that pleasantly highlight the other flavors. You can feel a bith of alcoholic warmth as the silky liquid coats your palate. Top notch!

12 oz bottle special thanks to Silphium. Pours very dark with a brown head. Huge aromas of coffee, chocolate and more coffee. Flavors were more of the same with a strong hop finish. As things went on, the hops seemed to get stronger. Coffee aromas held strong to the end. Very tasty.

Pours a deep brown, just one shade before black, with a brief espresso colored head. Nose is robust and appetizing with a roast front, shades of chocolate, and then full, bold coffee. Palate is silky smooth and richly thick. Flavor starts with chocolate and nut before the strong coffee and is rounded out by a bourbon character that continues the depth and richness. Impressive and powerful this is an excellent sweet stout that is not for the noncommital. Much recommended.

Finally, I get a small taste of this beer after many foiled attempts. There a restrained woody roastiness balancing an explosion of dark, bitter coffee butted up against a full, deep shaft of tangy, rich cocoa. All floating on a body so thick and slick and buoyant you swear you could float a lead canoe on it. Really, really tasty.

12 oz bottle. Pours almost black with a syrupy brown head. Lots of coffee flavor, a little bitter like coffee grounds. Rich mouthfeel - I like it. Its about time I tried this one being that I live in Grand Rapids.
