It's 1:00 PM, I just woke up. This is my breakfast.

Pours out a thick, motor-oil black. 1983 Chevy S10, the oil has never been changed, 100,000 miles and running. Sits deep, dark, brown, black, empty. All the colors of the anti-rainbow. Big brown head caps it off, surprised it's not black too. Leaves rings up and down the glass and holds a good thick skim on the surface.

Once the aroma gets into your nose, your eyes widen with the sudden jolt of caffeine laced, rich coffee aroma. Deep, dark and roasty. Creaminess never smelt so good. Big chunky notes of bakers chocolate fill you head with melty sweetness. There is no end.

Tastes equally powerful. Coffee is jammed into every single corner of your mouth, providing a broad spectrum of bitterness. Roasty, nearly burnt flavors leave your tongue feeling black, thirsty for more. Sweetness is the savior of the beer, like having a big spoonfull of cream dropped into your morning cup. Rich and chocolately...my teeth ache. Finishes with a strong, awakening bitterness that tugs at every cell in your mouth, crisp roastedness then replaces every feeling your mouth.

Dripping, gooey, molten chocoate-like, absolutely thick and viscous. You could paint your house with this beer. Carbonation is light and well suited for the overall experience. I like it.

I don't usually like drinking when I wake up, but this beer has changed my opinion on the subject. I also don't like the watery feel of coffee, but love the flavors and aroma, suitable replacement? This is now the #1 reason why I love Founders. I'm going back to bed, wake me when it's time for another.
