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.

Fat roasty nose with a lot of coffee, burnt sugar, figs, anise, and a slight chalky/vegital character . Not as thick as I was expecting but pleasantly firm mouthfeel, lots of black patent malts, more burnt sugar, figs, toffee, coffee, dark chocolate. More of that chalky vegital flavor in the opening but fading to the back to let the other flavors though. Finishes with a lot of coffee and the chocolate notes dry down to bakers chocolate and a touch of bitterness at the edges. Hides 8.3% like a champ.

Perhaps one of the best stouts around. Actually has an aroma. Full bodied and smooth. Plenty of flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at The Craft Beer Co, Angel Islington on 17-June-2016. Dark brown, almost black in colour with a thick tan coloured head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, sweet malt and pine. Full body and soft/medium carbonation. The flavour is wonderful - lots of sweet cocoa nibs with a nice bitter expresso taste and a spice chilli finish. A Lovely creamy mouthfeel.

12 oz bottle: Black color, tan head. Interesting aroma - raisin, charred wood, coffee. Intense espresso flavor, lingering roasted grain and brown sugar, slightly sour. Very flavorful and tasty.

A: Looks like obsidian, shiny and smooth and black. Only barely translucent, its so thick. Minimal head, the color of espresso foam. A: Coffee, coffee, burnt sugar, yeast, burnt toast and more coffee. Enough said. T: Tastes of bitter chocolate and coffee, sweet bread or grains and burnt smoke. Highly savory and bitter, offset by a creamy, sweet undercurrent that fills the mouth and leaves a lingering, milky sweetness. The smoke flavor is a bit stronger than I’d like it, on an otherwise well-balanced and delicious beer. P: Silky and thick with tightly structured bubbles. O: Really big, bold and tasty. Love that the chocolate, coffee and grain flavors are so strong but blended in just the right proportion to create this awesome brew!

Founders Breakfast Stout is my second choice for coffee Stouts behind Rasputen Coffee Stout only because of its a little more bitter than I prefer otherwise it would be perfect!

Very drinkable imperial stout. KBS is much better imo, but I am fine with Breakfast Stout. Coffee and oatmeal. Yummy.

Bottle. A shocked I had not rated this. Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma of coffee, oatmeal, roastedmalt, earth, caramel and nuts. Smooth and drinkable. Choxcolayte covered coffee beans. Meatiness and oatiness at times. Earthy and charred bitterness. Very good
