Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Founders Breakfast Stout, am I the only person who finds the label for this a tad frightening? The children of the corn kid kind of scares me, not enough to not buy the beer, but enough for me to not keep a bottle. I find this beer to have very little head. The beer I'm reviewing is the 4th from my 4pack and I've poured it into a couple different glasses to try and find the most head, twice now in a pint glass. The pint glass has the most satisfactory result, but the head quickly disappears and just barely laces the glass. I like that it does at least have some lacing though, not a lot of beer does that. Well, kinda. This beer is dark as night. This is a stout, you don't come for pretty colors. The smell has very definite coffee characteristics. It's very heavy, but I appreciate the smell of coffee and it works well in this beer. The taste is very complex and it's heavy in the mouth. (That's what she said) There's a lot of play between the coffee, a hint of chocolate, the malts all of which balance together perfectly so that sometimes a drink might finish different from another. Or more so you focus on different textures and elements each time. I quite love drinking this beer. I unwittingly nursed one for about two hours one time. It really is just a joy to take a small sip and sit and focus on each ingredient in the beer.
I find it fitting that when I began this review, 'Bout to Bubble by Tech N9ne began to play.
