Finally I've gotten my greedy hands on the famed Founders Breakfast Stout and I've been waiting ages to put it to the test.
A: Pours like used motor oil, looks extremely thick, bordering on syrupy, when pouring. When poured aggressively into a tulip glass you get a nice finger and a half or so of extremely thick, dense, fluffy mocha head that hangs around for about five minutes before leaving stunning lacing. I just wish that head stuck around longer!
S: Like dark chocolate covered, espresso rolled vanilla, caramel and coffee chocolate balls. Someone compared it to the Cubano Style Espresso Brown from Cigar City, but I think that was more one note, while this opens up to be more complex and layered. Just a touch of heat on the very back end belies the 8.3% ABV.
T: Exactly like the smell, espresso, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, chocolate covered dark fruits with just the slightest warmth from the booze, which is complementary. I only wish it was even more intense and overwhelming.
M: Thick, chewy, but yields with the alcohol, though it still leaves a sticky film across your whole mouth.
O: Outstanding, delicious. Only need to try it barrel aged.
