Founders Breakfast Stout is dark and dense looking with a nice mocha head. The smell is coffee upfront and chocolate. This is great! The taste is dark chocolate and coffee, a bit roasty, a hint of sweetness. The finish is creamy and chewy. I like the level of bitterness. Its well balanced and is rather drinkable. Really want to try it on tap now.

Served in a 12oz. Duvel tulip glass.

A: Dark black with a small tan head that dissipates quickly leaves a nice filmy lacing.

S: Wow! Simply wonderful aromas going on here. Getting lots of dark chocolate upfront followed by coffee and roasted malts.

T: Tastes just like it smells. Wonderfully smooth, creamy, chocolaty, malty, and a slight caramel flavor on the backend. Amazing balance going on. Moderate carbonation which is perfect for this style. Could easily drink this for breakfast with some scrambled eggs, a side of bacon, over some maple syrup.

O: This is a very well done stout. You can taste the dedication and effort that founders puts into this beer. Awesome aroma and flavor. Not bitter at all. It packs a little punch at 8.5% ALC but you don't taste it. I am so thankful I live close by founders. One of the worlds top craft brewers in my opinion. Brewed for us!
