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.

Opaque dark black body under a small dark brown head that quickly diminishes. Black coffee flavor is cut through by alcohol and wrapped up in dark chocolate notes. Brother-in-law gifted this one because he really likes it. I still donít like chocolate stouts

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

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.
