look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Doing a side by side with Terrapins Wake and Bake.Poured into a Founders snifter,I let this sit out about 20 minutes before I cracked it.I definately think it takes alot away if it's to cold.
A. Black no light through this one at all,1 finger light tan head that dissapates rather quickly.Leaves no lacing on my glass.Carbonation is decent with agressive pour but leaves quickly.
S. Coffee bomb! Tons of coffee that fills the nose,also lots of milk chocolate after the extreme coffee. Getting some oats in the back,I don't get much more in this one.
T. What you smell is what you get here. Spot on with the smell,lots of coffee,chocolate,oats and some biterness in the end.Alchohol is very well hidden.
M. Nice medium feel very smooth,nice semi heavy feel on the tounge,little carbonation stings the pallet.
Overall I love this beer! It's one of my favorite easy abtained beers.I just can't get enough of the over the top coffee and chocolate in this.I will say between the two,Breakfast stout and Wake and bake,Both the two best I have tried in there class, Founders is the one I prefer.I recommend doing the side by side if you can.

Served at 40 degrees
Pours pitch black, allowing no light to pass through. A light brown head quickly dissolves to a thin ring. No noticeable carbonation. Decent lacing and light legging.
Rich, bitter chocolate and cocoa nibs up front backed by thick notes of roasted coffee. Hints of molasses. Not a lot to speak of beyond that, but it is very pleasing.
Bitter chocolate hits you first with a subtle smoke character. Gobs of roasted malt and coffee ride out each sip. Light notes of molasses and vanilla. Roasted coffee aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked - I'd never guess this one at 8%.
This is a full-bodied beer that will fill you up. Again, no noticeable carbonation. Smooth exit with a nice aftertaste.
This is a fantastic beer for the cold winter days we have ahead. Easy to drink, but best enjoyed slowly. Highly recommend.
