COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

If stouts were my thing, I’d be rolling around like a pig in slop with this one . . . over the top in its own stouty way, ridiculous amounts of coffee character in here. Pours thick, goes down thick, smells boggy murky thick, sounds thick, the full 5-senses thick. A real punisher in the appearance: just get a bunch of chunky-looking suds to sneer at the wary. There must be just a hateful level of carbs in here. Alcohol presence obvious but well-overwhelmed by all the other shit. Kudos to Founders for pushing the limits of the remotely reasonable; on another corner of the beer spectrum is its trillion-IBU Devil Dancer. If you fall head over heals for stout, put this in strong 9/10 territory. For those hop-junkies shivering, naked, over in that grimy, piss-stained corner, it’s an 8.5.

Glides from bottle to glass as a twisted black ribbon giving rise to a small tight beaded creamy brown head that lasts. Big roast aromas leap out at you along with a faint rubberyness and of course coffee, all followed up with with smidgen of alcohol. Full bodied, viscous, coating and chewy. Lots of roasted coffee on the palate, chocolate thats bittersweet, some misplaced earthy notes. Finish is dry, roasty a bit chalky. Breakfast of champions! ? Hell yea! Thanks to Facto for this bonus brew!!

A black beer with a nice brown head. The aorma is roasted and with notes of coffee. The flavor is dry and very roasted and notes of coffee and bitter chocolate. Thanks to MadsBerg for sharing this magnificent beer.

WOW! Thanks to Wohlfs for sending this! Had I known this was going to be this good, I would have asked for a sixer! I could have lingered over the aroma alone on this one for hours. Coffee, chocolate, rich roast malts all play together in a complex harmony that delights the nose. The flavor was as complex and satisfying as the aroma and was delivered with a full, smooth palate. I was expecting something over hyped, but this is a must seek out brew. Michigan is for Stout lovers.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2005
Motor oil thickness; black with a tan head. Choco-coffee nose. Sweet malts, with dark chocolate, roast and toast. Only a mild bitterness (I wanted more). Dark-roast coffee was very sharp and nice. Chewy, wholesome stout just bursting with chocolaty, earthy malts.

Wow... stopped into the brewery, had a pint and then took a growler home. Thick, coffee and chocolate flavors... Wonderfully thick mouthfeel. I highly suggest you try this!

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 Bottled. Extremely black. Lots of everything in here. There’s massive coffee, molasses and salty licoricve. It’s very malty with dense, rich, creamy, almost oily mouthfeel. Lingering very bitter finish.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Poured as dark as the monolith in 2001: a space odyssey and it was one heck of a journey drinking this brew. Aromas of coffee and chocolate are abundant. Small tan head. Has wonderful fresh coffee hints with roasty sweetness initially, slowly changes to a chocolate slightly sweet finish. Super smooth all the way through with almost no hint of alcohol. This is one outstanding stout.

Black beer; thin creamy brown layer. Very nice coffeish aroma. Good coffee beer, with an expected malty sourness, good malt. Very good! Thanks Mads Berg for sharing this bottle.

Tap. Stopped at Founders and tested. Black color with mediem tan head. Flavor was complex combo of sweet coffee and bitter chocolate. Finish was strong and lasting. Was good with cigar.
