The famed Breakfast Stout from Founders.

12 oz bottle pours a thick rich black with a light brown head. Nose of Coffee, more coffee,
DARK chocolate, deeply roasted grains, sweet butterscotch, and again COFFEE. The head of
this beast is brown, not tan, BROWN. The head dissipates to a thin pooling layer with mild
lacing. Flavors are powerful and up front. Coffee and dark chocolate hit up front, back,
middle, sides, and aftertaste. No grit to the chocolate flavors. A light sweetness endures
without being cloying. Aftertaste is where it is at. Butterscotch and dark chocolate mingle
and marry so nicely it is hard to over emphasize how good of a stout this is. Smooth
mouthfeel, from the oatmeal, silky yet aggressive in flavor. As always, a great go to.

CHEERS!
