4.4/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured down the center of a Left Hand balloon glass from a 12oz bottle.

Appearance: A black heart with dark copper and brown hues. A half-finger's worth of dark khaki head recedes quickly to leave a thin halo of carbonation. A very small amount of lacing.

Smell: The aroma of coffee dominates with hints of bitter dark chocolate, roasted malts, some sweetness from the alcohol, and what I can only describe as a burnt toast note.

Taste: A taste that matches the flavor; coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malts, and a wonderfully balanced bitterness on the finish. Delicious.

Mouth: Full body with moderate to light carbonation. It leaves a chewy feeling on the teeth.

A tremendous breakfast stout that'll kickstart your day. Yum.

Got a couple bottles of this and finally tried it. This beer is great! Founders really knows how to make stouts. It was a treat to drink this alongside Kbs and bcbcs and this came in second for me behind bcbcs. A solid offering that I will need to get more of and save.

This beer truly has a very unique and distinct aroma and flavor. If I could I would have this for breakfast as the name of this fantastic brew suggests, but that would possibly suggest things about me that would not be true. The fact is this the beer is delicious with a appropriate amount of sweetness that makes me want to have this as part of my breakfast, however, that is not possible. Beer is just one of many great beers from "The Founders" brewery.

Enjoy!!!
