Now Quaffing: Founder's Breakfast Stout
12:07... AM... perfect time for my first Breakfast Stout. This beer pours just about as close to black as it can. ZERO light visible, in fact, light seems to be sucked into this magical elixir of darkness. The deep mocha head almost erupts over the edge of the glass on an aggressive pour. Lacing is fine and plasters the side of the glass as the opaque tide recedes. Initial rush of cappucino as I stole a whiff from the bottle. Once poured, the aromas where much more subdued--coffee with sweet chocolate. The taste is fairly sweet with a good blend of the milk chocolate and coffee. A slight bitterness lingers, similar to after drinking coffee. The mouthfeel is both creamy smooth and subtley crisp. Drinkability is very good with almost no evidence of the alcohol in the taste. This would make a nice pair with a big greasy breakfast... mmm bacon..

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.
