Founder's Breakfast Stout. Bottled on 8-26-11 and consumed on 9-3-11
Served in a DFH signature glass.
A: Pours black with tan head that recedes slowly and leaves above-average lacing. The head itself is shot through with various sized bubbles, giving it the appearance of risen dough.
S: Smells like a cup of coffee made with freshly ground beans and through a French press. Additional aromas include chocolate, roast, rolled oats, and earth.
T: Taste begins with malty sweetness, with chocolate following close behind. Next comes the fresh coffee, whose roastiness seems to amplify through the finish. Medium-high bitterness. Oats are somewhat obfuscated by roasted malt and coffee onslaught. Earthy, rich and organic are words I keep reaching for.
M: Medium-heavy body and medium-light carbonation. The beer flows like velvet across the palate. Gorgeous mouthfeel. May be the highlight of this beer.
O: I took a pass on this beer last year after drinking myself silly on it in 2008 and 2009. I now find Breakfast Stout to be shockingly delicious and drinkable. It is also cheap at $8.99 a four-pack and readily available, when in season. Let the silliness begin again.
