This is one of my all-time favorite beers. It pours dark and strong; something that you could have on a winter morning or a great option for any relaxing evening. If you are not familiar with Founders beers or stouts in general get ready for a major mix of flavors. The coffee and chocolate come through strong and mix for a great drinking experience. I highly recommend this beer for anyone who is looking for a strong beer or a stout lover who is looking to add to their list. If possible go to the taproom in Grand Rapids, one of the best drinking spots in West Michigan.

Appearance: If this is not the darkest beer I've seen, it is easily one of the top 2 or 3. Great tan foam and lacing. Absolutely no light getting through this.

Smell: Highly caffeinated caramel Frappucino. Very similar to Goose Island Resolutions.

Taste/Mouthfeel: I have to say...the mouthfeel is out of this world. It has that strong coffee sensastion that perks you up. There's also plenty of malty backbone to soak this up, almost as if it's a bowl of oatmeal. The chocolate balances everything. What surprises me about Founders Breakfast is the lack of an aftertaste, given the fact that it's an 8.3% stout.

Overall: Would make a great Guinnesss stew but would be a colossal waste.
