12 oz. bottle, with bottled on date reading 09/13/2012, last year's fall release, about six months old chilling in the bottle. My first ever Founders Breakfast Stout, and excited to try it considering how well received this beer seems to be.
Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Pours the most greasy blackest motor oil looking beer I have ever seen. Thick and opaque, with the tiniest mocha colored foam struggling itself into existence and then fading away.
S - Deep dark chocolate, and dark roasted coffee beans. Not as impressive as I was hoping. Dark candied fruits, burnt brown sugar, and oats emerge as the beer begins to warm.
T - Bitter roasted coffee bean goodness, silky dark chocolate, vague buried hops. Smooth, creamy, and chocolatey. Perfectly balanced, highly drinkable, masks it's 8.30% abv deceptively well, this is a beer I could easily drink excessively.
M - Creamy, smooth, sweet, little bit of coffee bean bitterness. An all around pleasant beer.
Overall, a great beer from Founders, probably the best I have had from them yet, although I have had other stouts that blew me away more or just as much as this beer. I just very recently tried Bear Republic Big Bear Black Stout, and I have to say I was more impressed with that one than I was with Founders Breakfast Stout. Definitely a beer I would have again, maybe a bit fresher next time. A must try beer, either way.
Founders Breakfast Stout ---4/5.
