Pours a jet black body without even a hint of light showing through beneath the thin mocha colored head that quickly gives way to just a hint of lacing.
The aroma is quite complex. It is rich and woody with roasted malt, bourbon, hints of vanilla, and possibly maple. As it warms the coffee starts to appear as well as some of the earthy hops.
The flavor is equally complex yet a bit different. Roasted malt greets the palate and the bourbon, oak, and vanilla come through mid way. The chocolate and coffee bitterness arrive towards the finish with a hint of hops that provide the 70 ibu's.
The mouth feel is quite thick, yet smooth, with medium to low carbonation and a lip smacking finish from the vast flavors offered.
This beer is fantastic. A great bourbon stout as Founders found just the right mix to use without altering what made Breakfast Stout good in the first place. This is dangerously good.
