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.

On principle, I am hesitant to rate a beer as perfect. This is the tastiest stout I have ever had. Is it the best? I am not sure, and the only reason I'm not sure is that there are still other beers out there in the world. It pours heavy, no head and minimal lacing, into a tulip glass (next time I'll use a snifter). It tastes sweet, and bitter, and chocolatey - I sense coffee, but on my palate the chocolate is more present - and heavy. Like I really could have it for breakfast. And by God the next time I don't have to work and my kid is already at daycare, I will have one for breakfast, and by then maybe I'll decide it truly is the best stout ever.
