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.

Pours a pitch black color with a half finger of a mocha colored head. Dissipates quickly and leaves a somewhat soapy lacing on the edges. Smells of great smelling roasted coffee, dark chocolate, almost like a hint of nuts, some vanilla. Very roasty and just smells like breakfast. Starts with strong flavors of coffee, and some bitter dark chocolate, little sweetness. Then in the middle it smooths out with the oats providing that creamy backbone. Then finishes with more coffee, bitter, dark chocolate, almost like a burnt toast taste, but in a good way, like a mocha flavor. Get some sweetness on the backend as well. Has a medium-high body with a nice creamy and slick texture. Iíve had this beer many times, and it never gets old. The smoothness of it at 8.3% with a great coffee flavor is a great combination. If you like coffee, you will like this beer.

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.

What can you say about Founderís Breakfast Stout that hasnít already been said? Aroma is pure coffee and sweet malt. Pours black with very thin almond head. Taste is well balanced and delicious. Great beer!
