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.

Birra buona ma non quanto credevo. Naso poco pronunciato e poco complesso, con note liquorose e di liquirizia, orzo tostato e sul finire caffè. In bocca h un corpo medio ed una consistenza tra il cremoso e lo scarno, il che la rende intrigante perché la beva è facile e molto buona. Però, pochi sussulti : malti tostati, un tocco vinoso e tanto caffè misto a cacao, con un po’ di frutta disidratata a scompigliare le carte buona. Carbonatazione medio scarsa, niente di eccezionale ma una buonissima birra.

0.355l bottle. Black color with brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, caramel, roasted barley and candy sugar. Taste is sweet with roasted barley notes. Full body. Overall it’s great and tasty beer with excellent aroma.

2013 version aged a year. Coffee still there. Smell dark roast and coffee pour oil black no head. Taste coffee expresso not much chocolate. Dry quick finish. You can really taste the alcohol in this. Finish is where the chocolate comes in bakers chocolate. Gets smooth as it warms.

I normally like beer cold but as this one warms up the oatmeal flavor comes out, the coffee gives it a good finish

I really enjoyed this beer. I have had it before, and I will have it again. Absolute great nose and initial taste. This was also my 1st attempt at a review: http://wp.me/p5urG4-eG.

This was the first Founder’s beer I ever had, close to 10yrs ago. A desert beer that isn’t so sweet that you only want one. Great roasty malt with just the right amount of chocolate and coffee. In fact it’s a good light dinner beer as much as it is a desert beer. I can’t remember if I’ve had one for Breakfast. Probably.

Sure, I’d drink this for breakfast. I’ve definitely had it before noon on occasion. Don’t judge me.
