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.

Bottle. Pours and looks like motor oil, thick and black with a thin brown head. Smoky, coffee aroma is strong but not especially noteworthy. Flavor is unbelievably strong...Sweet chocolate coats the tongue for a second and then bursts into a huge hazelnut coffee flavor...a bitterness begins to develop and as the tongue reacts to the bitterness a second more roasted coffee taste dominates. Long aftertaste. Ive never had a beer where multiple flavor stages were so distinct and perceptable but if you dont like coffee the flavor of this beer can wear out. Still Founders should be proud of the refinement of this beer.

12 oz bottle pours dark black with a big tan head. Aroma is coffee and cocoa. Taste is complex, coffee and chocolate remind me of a mocha latte. Chewy mouth feel. bittersweet finish. Great stout!

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2017 Bottled 9/9/16: Little to no Head, aroma chocolate coffee mildly detected. First taste very happy nice clean flavors of chocolate and coffee. Mouth feel perfect, just the right amount of carbonation and very silky in the mouth. This stout is very well-balanced and enjoyable. Not too sweet not to bitter easy to drink. If youre going to drink this for breakfast, limit to two. Nice relaxing body feel from just the right amount of alcohol. If you love coffee and chocolate this is your beer. Well done thank you founders.

Coffee, oatmeal, chocolate in nose. Pours very dark brown with tan head, poor retention. Taste is medium sweet to medium dry with coffee, oatmeal flakes, chocolate, spices. Medium bitter finish with some booze, average body, soft carbo. Overall very nice. It really reminds chocolate oatmeal flakes taken with coffee early morning.

The next big things come, and the next big things go, but Founders Breakfast Stout goes on and on and on...the perfect balance of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and oat flakes. This stout has more bourbon-y flavor with no barrel aging than many BA stouts. Well deserving of its reputation.
