Poured down the center of a Left Hand balloon glass from a 12oz bottle.

Appearance: A black heart with dark copper and brown hues. A half-finger's worth of dark khaki head recedes quickly to leave a thin halo of carbonation. A very small amount of lacing.

Smell: The aroma of coffee dominates with hints of bitter dark chocolate, roasted malts, some sweetness from the alcohol, and what I can only describe as a burnt toast note.

Taste: A taste that matches the flavor; coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malts, and a wonderfully balanced bitterness on the finish. Delicious.

Mouth: Full body with moderate to light carbonation. It leaves a chewy feeling on the teeth.

A tremendous breakfast stout that'll kickstart your day. Yum.

Served from a bottle at around 55 degrees. This is my first founders breakfast stout so my expectations were really really high. Oh god I wasn't disappointed at all! The appearance is just like a typical imperial stout; pitch black with a decent head that dissipates in about 3 minutes. The smell is just awesome, coffee, heavy chocolate, roasted malts and more chocolate. The taste is just like the smell very delicious, very creamy. The first flavor you palate detects is the rich coffee, followed by tons and tones of dark chocolate, ending in a pleasant bitterness. This could be perhaps the best Russian stout out there. I highly recommend!
