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.

12oz bottle thanks to corby112. Pours a rich dark brown, almost black. Nose is massive coffee and oatmeal. Fantastic smelling beer. Rich thick body but a little watery on the backend. Big chocolate up front. Full oaty, grainy middle with a slightly watery huge roast coffee finish. Awesome beer and it really is a breakfast stout. I actually found this more drinkable than the Mikkeller (BGB).

Bottle pours black with a tannish head. Big coffee aroma with a bit of sourness too. Sweetbody with a good amount of coffee but not overbearing. Slight slickness in the mouthfeel. Burnt sugar and coffee bitterness at the end. Nice beer and easy drinking.

Bottle->snifter: pours a small, diminishing, dark brown head that exhibits good lacing atop a ruby body. Aroma of caramel and coffee. The body is light, texture creamy, showing no carbonation and having a bitter finish. The flavors duration is average, lightly sweet, acidic, and bitter, with some sour milk characteristics. A truly fine beer.

Bottle thanks to mattmc1973. Pour is black with medium tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, brown sugar, and light tobacco. Flavor is sweet malt and coffee up front with a mellow lingering sweetness and chocolate finish. Very tasty stuff and an awesome label.

My first week back from a medical leave and the bar has Breakfast Stout on draft. Boo-YAH! I missed the rush to try Founders imperial stout when it first came out. Man, I missed out. Full bodied stout that hits you with flavors of coffee, chocolate, and oats blended perfectly together. Drinkable, enjoyable and a masterpiece of a brew.

the commercial description is bang on. this brew knocks you over with coffee and it truly impresses with every sip. It has the strongest coffee aroma Ive ever experienced in a beer. This also carries through in the flavour. It is soooo smooth and easy to drink. No alcohol noticeable Although it may lack the complexity of dark lord it is a truly great beer, one of my favourite imperial stouts.

Pours black with a half-finger head that doesnt linger, though the lacing clings nicely. Exceptional aroma with notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Wow, the flavor is intense and unique. Complex flavors with strong notes of dark roast coffee and a touch of chocolate. Very well balanced. Mouth feel is luxurious. This is absolutely the best stout Ive tried yet.

not too carbonated, this one comes across very different with massive coffee and bitter chocolate. It is not sweet like many stouts but not excessively bitter either. It has a dryness to it that definately sets it apart from many other beers. I think I paid 14 bucks for it in South Carolina, so it better be good. It doesnt disappoint. It ends with a chocolate/ slight bitter alcohol finish. i will have to say I am pretty impressed with founders. they do great stuff
