The coffee lovers consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2012 Review number 100! 2011 vintage recieved in a trade, thanks beergodd1. Pours a dark brown/coffee color with a medium tan head that leaves spotty soapy lacing. Smells of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Tastes of really strong coffee with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla and oats. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with great carbonation with a semi dry finish. I can see why this beer is one of the most sought after and highly rated. It lives up to its name. It?s like having breakfast in a bottle. I have a couple more bottles of it that I?m going to age longer.

On tap at Elizabeth Station. Pours an almost black with a dark beige head. Aroma is cold coffee with milk. Taste is pretty the same. Very good stuff, like you are really drinking coffee.

Dark, rich, doesnt have much carbonation. Scent of coffee and cocoa squeezes out of the bottle once its open. Notes of coffee, cocoa, caramel an oat in a great balance. Having less carbonation makes the taste more gentle and consistent. Mildly and pleasantly bitter. Hop wise, its still somewhat hoppy with a small hint of citrus note. But given that its a breakfast stout, should focus more on other taste instead of its "fruity" hoppiness. A GRRRRRREAT breakfast stout, strongly recommended. 好喝!

Prokroustis (741) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JAN 5, 2017
Pitch black body, big beige head. Incredible intense aroma full of roasted coffee, honey, a hint of strawberry and chocolate. Medium body with ideal carbonation. Great flavour with bitter chocolate, praline, coffee and indeed a hint of strawberry.

Diogne (1202) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2016
Bouteille. Bire dun noire dense surmonte dune fine mousse moka qui sestompe rapidement. Au nez, cest la fois doux et trs aromatique avec des armes de caf, de chocolat au lait, de vanille, de pain lgrement brl, de sucre, de grains torrfis et une touche harbace. En bouche, les saveurs sont les mmes, dans un bel quilibre, accompagne dune pointe dalcool assez prononce. Contrairement dautres stouts au caf, celle-ci nest pas trop amre et ne vient pas avec une saveur dsagrable de tabac ou de craie. La texture est onctueuse. Cest trs russi, mais lalcool est peut-tre un peu trop prsent.

skullgeorge (83) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - DEC 28, 2016
On tap at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, Greece. Pours black, really dark color, with a thick creamy brown, beige head. Aroma full of Roasted coffee. Taste is bitter light, full of coffee, dark roasted malts, some chocolate when it gets warmer. Perfect silky mouthful, medium to full body, easy drinkable with a dry coffee bitter aftertaste. Perfect breakfast stout.

Bottle. Just tasted this one back-to-back with North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout. Founders has a more effervescent head and aroma. Similar strong sweet coffee aroma and flavor, but less boozy with 8.3% ABV. Definite vegetal/grassy undertones. Clean finish. Sweeter, not as bitter, and lighter blend of coffee than the Old Rasputin. Its like choosing between coffee brews: Founders is a lighter brew, Old Rasputin is a darker brew. I prefer the Old Rasputin.

What an amazing beer. Chocolate, Coffee, Dark malts. It really is the perfect combination of these flavors. Alcohol is also very well hidden. One of my favorite imperial stouts. Great beer!
