On tap at Fat Duck tavern Berwyn, IL

A- Very stout-like! ha. Dark with a nice coffee tan head. About 2 fingers. Head didn't stick around very long.

S- Sweet and roasty. Most of the usual players here. Coffee, chocolate, a slight spice, and sweetness from the oatmeal to round it out. Delicious!

T- Big hits of roasty malt and chocolate/coffe. Ever so slight hint of alcohol. Very delicious.

M- Fairly thick. low-med carbonation. All the flavors coat the tongue on this one. Truly lives up to the billing of a Breakfast Stout!!

O- Waited a long time to try this. On a recent vacation I was able to sample many beers that were on my list. This one was OUTSTANDING. For lovers of big stouts it is highly recommended.

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Pitch black with a two tone head - tan with a brown rim around the glass. Very nice lacing. Smells: Dark chocolate, rich coffee, roasted malt: hard to beat the aroma of this brew, one of the of the best noses if not the best I've experienced. taste: Mocha, burnt toast, slight alcohol bite, sweet maltiness, love it. Medium to thick mouth feel, sticks to the lips. Overall: I love this stout. Very complex but so well balanced. Founder's stouts are top of the line and this one is no exception!
