On tap poured into a snifter
A- This one poured almost jet black with some brown noticeable at the edges. There was a small brown head and good lacing.
S- It was a really sweet scent of roasted malts, whiskey, and vanilla.
T- Definite whiskey and vanilla flavors along with the roasted malts.
M- Very smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation. It was a little thick, but as expected for the style.
D- This one is a little overpowering to be considered really drinkable.
Overall- While I can't say this is a bad beer, I think I went into drinking it with some really high expectations. I found the whiskey flavor to be a bit too broad for my taste. It just ended up being a little too sweet (lots of vanilla tones). My lower drinkability score didn't come from the high alcohol, I knew what to expect there. It was more of the overly sweet tones.
I'm looking forward to giving the regular breakfast stout a try in the near future. I'm a big fan of the style, and of Founder's, and want to check out a more traditional version.
Serving type: on-tap
