Poured into snifter
Appearance - Pours like old motor oil. No light getting through. 1/2 finger of dark caramel colored head hangs for a minute and fades away into the night. Very little lacing.
Smell - Oaky Bourbon scents dominate, with hints of vanilla, milk chocolate and coffee.
Taste - Dominant dark chocolate and coffee. Bold bourbon accents are there as well. Surprisingly, a pretty easy drinker at 11.2%.
Mouthfeel - Heavy body, light carbonation, sticky & semi-dry finish.
Overall - A solid, enjoyable beer. Well worth the $19 for a 4-pack that Founders charges. But I can't say it's worth the massive upcharge that most local liquor stores in the Chicago area are charging. This bottle cost me $7.99 + tax. I can get 4 regular Breakfast Stouts for just a few bucks more. That's a no-brainer. If you can find a single bottle for $6 or so, it's well worth it!
