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.

One of my many personal "whales". Finally! Thanks, Carlos! Decent nose of coffee, dark chocolate, roast malt. But the flavor- oh man! Everything the awesome label promises- big coffee, bitter chocolate, creamy oatmeal mouthfeel, dark toffee. Was not dissappointed at all!

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 Founderís beer I ever had, close to 10yrs ago. A desert beer that isnít so sweet that you only want one. Great roasty malt with just the right amount of chocolate and coffee. In fact itís a good light dinner beer as much as it is a desert beer. I canít remember if Iíve had one for Breakfast. Probably.

Coffee flavor is to over powering for me. Still awesome I just wish it was just a hint of coffee.

This beer is beyond description! It is really close to perfection. The liquid is pitch black with a tiny brown lacy head. Taste is stunning with coffee, a little bit of sweet but just the perfect pinch of sugar you would put in your morning coffee. This one is absolutely on my personnal imperial stouts top 3 list this year! Stunning beer!

Dark black pour under a thin dark tan head, sticky and sweet, good coffee taste gives it that bitter

10 Oz tap. Black with a brown head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate, with some fall fruit. Flavor is mild sweet at first worth less of coffee, baldness nicely with roasted malt and some alcohol. Full body with a creamy mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, not to complex, but really delicious.
