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.

Combination of my two drink loves: coffee and a great stout! Smells and tates like black coffee laced with anise and a hint of alcohol at the end. I never knew a coffee stout could have...well so much coffee! Great beer!

From a 12 oz into a pint glass, black, not as thick as I thought it would be, very good, excellent aroma, that island coffee flavor really shines, sweetness tempers the bitter a bit, a ton of flavor. My first Founderís, I will be trying more.

Oily black pour with a tinge of brown, decent head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate, emphasis on coffee. Thanks to BBB63, while Iím thinking about it! Flavor is a nice meld of espresso roast and chocolate flavors. Hint of acidity from the coffee. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice stuff!

Thank goes to JPDIPSO for this trade. Great Stout. Chocolate, coffee and molasses flavors. Finishes clean, smooth, and thick.

Coal black color,small dark brown head that faded quickly leaving just a slight lace behind.The aroma smelled like coffee grounds that have sat over night in the filter,some faint stale cigerette smell,and maybe a little chocolate in there as well but very faint.Holy Hanna,this is like drinking old cold coffee. This brew needs to be warmed up some for the other flavors to come through.The coffee mellows a bit after warming letting the chocolate finally come through with a decent hop presence and a good coffee bitter chocolate after taste.Itís a bit more coffee then i care for but to rate it for what it is itís a very nicely done brew and with a few more bottles i could see this brew growing on me very easily.Thanks go to Footbalm for sending another fine brew to this desperate rater.Thanks Bud.

Black in colour with an aroma of coffee. Flavour is coffee and anise with a very dry roasted flavour. Good but nowhere near complex enough to be rated as high as it is. And "drink it with a fork" please....not even near thick enough for that.

Pours like oil with a chocolate head. Nose comes off strongly of coffee. Very thick and bitter, with roasted coffee and malt. Good job Founders with this great entry to the Stout market.

If stouts were my thing, Iíd 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, itís 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.
