Founders Brewing Co. - Breakfast Stout

8.3% ABV

60 IBU's

"You’ve 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. We’re 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 topped with a cinnamon colored frothy head that seems to never fade and makes you wish breakfast could last forever."

The Pour

This stout pours like a viscous motoroil. One finger of mocha coloured head. So dark, so rich, so delicious.

Aroma

Wonderful espresso and coffee notes. Huge dark and milk chocolate aroma. Amazingly rich and amazing in every way.

Taste

Wonderfully balanced blend of coffee and espresso. Rich malts, chocolate, slight bitterness and silky smooth. This has an amazing mouthfeel that washes over your tongue without a hint of alcohol burn. Incredible.

Overall Impression

One of my favourite beer experiences has been a private tour of Founders and getting to spend some time with Dave Engbers. Amazingly, they were brewing this very beer the day we were there. This is just an incredible stout. The backbone of KBS and CBS. Chocolate, espresso, amazing. A solid "A+".
