look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Bottled on 9/13/13
Poured into a Duvel Tulip

Appearance: (4.25)
Pours an inky jet black with a finger of a dark tan head. The heads last a little while before dying down to a half finger, leaving light lacing behind.

Aroma: (4.5)
Gigantic waves of robust, dark roasted coffee waft up towards your nostrils as soon as you raise the glass to your lips. The coffee smells very fresh and rich. Beneath the burnt beans is a light, herbal hop spiciness. Fresh oats and rich, semi-sweet baker's chocolate peek through the wall of coffee more and more as the beer warms. The coffee really balances out of the sweet smelling chocolate and oats.

Taste: (4.5)
Right away, your palate is assaulted by dark roasted coffee beans that sustain through out of the taste. Just as in the nose, some leafy, herbal hop spiciness rises alongside the coffee's bitter astringency. Middle of the taste, a strong, firm dark chocolate presence and creamy oats coat your palate thoroughly. The beer finishes fairly dry, leaving tons of long lingering notes of coffee, rich chocolate and oats on your tongue.

Mouthfeel: (4.75)
Full and thick creamy body with moderate to high carbonation. The creamy, full texture of this stout really sets itself apart from other oatmeal stouts.

Overall: (4.5)
Wow, this is just a pitch perfect example of both an oatmeal stout and a coffee stout; The coffee presence isn't overbearing and the creamy, silky texture of the body just really sends this stout a cut or two above it's competition. Highly recommended.

This beer truly has a very unique and distinct aroma and flavor. If I could I would have this for breakfast as the name of this fantastic brew suggests, but that would possibly suggest things about me that would not be true. The fact is this the beer is delicious with a appropriate amount of sweetness that makes me want to have this as part of my breakfast, however, that is not possible. Beer is just one of many great beers from "The Founders" brewery.

Enjoy!!!
