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.

Bottle. Pours and looks like motor oil, thick and black with a thin brown head. Smoky, coffee aroma is strong but not especially noteworthy. Flavor is unbelievably strong...Sweet chocolate coats the tongue for a second and then bursts into a huge hazelnut coffee flavor...a bitterness begins to develop and as the tongue reacts to the bitterness a second more roasted coffee taste dominates. Long aftertaste. I’ve never had a beer where multiple flavor stages were so distinct and perceptable but if you dont like coffee the flavor of this beer can wear out. Still Founders should be proud of the refinement of this beer.

M_Sack (553) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Deep black, small mocha head. Massive whack of roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, spicy/earthy hops and a touch of sweet milk chocolate. Strong espresso flavours, bitter chocolate and hops, nuts, long dry espresso finish. Perfect mouth feel. Best stout I've had? It's up there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damn this was great beer! Spendy little 4-pack but worth it. Pours a super dark color with a small head. Immediately you get the chocolate, not overbearing but noticeable. The Kona Coffee and the dark malty flavor also come through. Buy it...nuf said!

Aroma: strong coffee and malt aroma; Appearance: thick and black with dark head that dissipates slowly; nice lacing Taste: also strong malt and coffee with pleasant bitterness mixed in; Palate: very heavy body with long, sweet and bitter finish; Overall: nicely balanced although a little heavy on the coffee. Delicious and would definitely buy again.

Double Chocolate Cofee Oatmeal Stout
Kolor: Bardzo czarny z minimalnymi rubinowymi refleksami.
Piana: Gęsta, kawowa, drobno oczkowa. Pięknie krążkuje. Spory kożuszek utrzymuje się na ściankach.
Zapach: Aromat jest bardzo złożony. Początkowo silna paloność atakuje zmysły. Następnie dostajemy solidną porcję czekolady oraz cukierki kukułki. Na sam koniec podwójne espresso.
Smak: W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie mocna paloność i ogrom czekolady. Na języku osiadają także mleczne akcenty oraz płatki owsiane. Pojawia się także karmel i trochę ciemnych owoców. Na finiszu kawa. Goryczka zaznaczona, średniego kalibru, bardzo dobrze ułożona. Alkohol zupełnie nieobecny. Gęste i bardzo pijalne pomimo 8,3% obj. alk.
Wysycenie: Niskie.
Kolejne moje piwo z Browaru Founders prosto z Michigan. Jest w 50-ce najlepszych Imperialnych Stoutów naszego globu serwisu RateBeer 100/99! Najbardziej zaskoczyła mnie jego nieprawdopodobna pijalność pomimo 8,3% obj.alk. Aromat był boski, a smak dopełniał ekstazę ;) Wszystko perfekcyjnie dobrane i zbalansowane. Chciałbym więcej takich Imperialnych Stoutów w swoim szkle.

wombat23 (142) - Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours almost black with a dark tan head. Clingy lacing. Strong aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Tastes of coffee, roasted malt, and dark bitter chocolate. The chocolate flavor intensifies as it warms, but takes a backseat to the coffee and roasted malt. Soft carbonation. Full-bodied. A bitter roasted coffee bean finish. Very good.

Smells of oatmeal coffee and cocoa nibs. Lovly deep rich black color. Taste is rich deep nice of roasted malts chocolate and sweet robust coffee. Full body brew with perfact carbonation in my opinion for the style. This is a nice stout a stout that could be drink by any body wether they like it of not. Way to change the game.
