Did this side by side with founders Breakfast stout.Poured into A founders snifter,I let it sit outside the fridge for 20 minutes I prefer to warm these up a bit.
A. Dark black no light is shining through this one,a 1 finger dark tan head recedes pretty quickly.looks like a little bit of carbonation coming from the bottom.No lacing on the glass.
S. Ok smell is pretty damn good my mouth is watering.At first I get the expected big coffee notes then follows a spicy garden pepper smell that I did not expect.Also lots of bitter dark chocolate and some cocoa.
T. Alot like the smell But not as much coffee as I was expecting but still is the main taste here.I get a peppery taste no doubt,a good bit of chocolate.Also getting some of the alchohol in the end.
M. Nice medium mouth, smooth and creamy.Not much carbonation which I think suits this well.
Overall great beer worthy of it's hype,I will definatly seek more of this, as well as everybody who enjoys the style.Now to reveiw Founders!

Served in a snifter
A - It is black night. I barely got any head. Just a sparse covering of mud colored foam was on top. It dissipated quickly.
S - The smell is straight up coffee and cream.
T - The taste starts out with dark chocolate and vanilla. Then comes the coffee with rich roasted flavor and just enough bitterness to balance out the sweeter start.
M - Full with relatively low carbonation.
O - This is one of the better coffee stouts that I have had. It reminds me of Short's Cup A Joe which I love.
