Founders Breakfast Stout: Pours out of a stubby brown bottle, with just the cutest damn kid eating oatmeal on the label. It says it is a “double chocolate coffee oatmeal stout.” 8.3 abv

The pour is magnificent: thick oily body under a thick creamy dark brown head, with massive staying power.

The aroma is thick and rich, I cannot smell the chocolate, but the coffee is very prominent.

Nice taste, thick and chewy. Very heavy roasted malt taste, no doubt this is a complex brew, playing all the notes of a dark, rich stout. Cocoa, coffee, dark chocolate are all-predominant, with just the barest hint of hops to balance out the beer.

Very nice.

Maybe I am bias towards my Michigan Brews but Founder Oatmeal Stout is great Sweet Stout. With flavors of coffee, chocolate, and lightly roasted characters tickle the taste buds, it is easy to get a full stomach on a pint (or two). As dark as they come, this beer has nothing to see through it! My appearance review rating was not all that well because I felt my bartender just overflowed the pint glass and I was not happy about the wasted beer :(

All said though, this is a great sweet stout for those who are looking for a big filling beer!

Cheers to Founders!
