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: FEB 6, 2010 12oz bottle, bottled Dec 2009. Pours a very dark brown/black with a two finger brown head. Holds a good cap with rings of sticky lacing. Aroma is gourmet coffee beans, chocolate milk, and dark roasted malts. Flavor is very chocolaty, a good dose of coffee, chocolate milk is there again on the finish, also a touch of acidity toward the bottom of the glass. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy thanks to the oats, a little thin compared to the competition, with medium carbonation.

This drinks almost like chocolate milk with a coffee kick, the lighter body helps in this department. Dangerously drinkable. A very, very nice coffee oatmeal stout, gets a slight bump due to being the best bargain in the category. There are a few that are better, but cost twice as much or more. Founders Breakfast Stout is one Ill keep coming back to.

ben4321 (6235) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Location: 12 oz bottle from Wine and Beer Westpark, 1/18/10

Aroma: Lots of roasted coffee, some sweet notes, chocolate, pepper, vanilla, and some smoke
Appearance: This one pours a dark brown color with a creamy brown head
Flavor: Mild sweetness up-front with a bitter coffee tingle lingering on the tongue
Palate: Medium-full body with a thick feel, and a somewhat long duration
Overall Impression: Id been holding on to this one for a couple of months, but hey, tonight is as good a night as any. As I watch the beginning of another season of 24, Ill toast this beer to Jack Bauer! This is a very nice stout especially for all the coffee lovers out there. It reminds me a little bit of Dieu du Ciel Pch Mortel, which I also like. A very nice beer.

An incredible looking beer. Pours your typical stout body with a good inch of a thick brown head. Smells strongly of mocha, vanilla, and oats. Great lacing. Smooth and rich. A slightly astringent mouthfeel akin to a cold coffee. Sweetly malted. A great beer.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Pours black with a small/mediuim thick, light brown head that lingers. Smells of milk chocolate, graham crackers, and some coffee. Mouthfeel starts creamy/full and tapers to a medium body with carbonation. Definite coffee and dark chocolate bitterness with some sweetness. Overall an enjoyable, heavy stout. A good substitute for a sandwich.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2010
Bottle at The Beertemple, Amsterdam. Pours pitch black with a very small tan head. Aroma of strong espresso style coffee, chocolate and caramel. Bitter coffee flavor and a nice creamy texture. Bitter finish. Very nice beer.

DerWeg (1659) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2010
Midnight brown pour with espresso foam cap. Nose has aromas of chocolate and coffee, nice! Taste replay of aroma plus some dark sweet and tart fruits, and some notable hop edge which plays off the added coffee edge. Peche might be awfully competitive to this but this is great. Medium full feel.

jmm635 (1004) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Pours with a black body and a very large, dense, rocky, light brown head. Aroma was malty and roasted with an enormous amount of coffee. Coffee was just too strong in the flavor. I found it near undrinkable with the coffee and hop bitterness. This bottle is pretty old and I feel like Im missing something, so Im willing to give it another chance. Highly disappointed.

This beer poured a deep red with a reddish brown head that was pretty thick but not too much. I could smell the beer from about 4 feet away and it was very powerful. The taste was similar to that of other chocolate/coffee stoudts that ive had but it was balanced very well. Nice beer for a cold day.
