Aged 12 oz bottle served ina pint glass.
Pours with a large, medium-density tan head over an opaque body.
Aroma: perhaps my imagination but some dairy odors seem to join the dark roasted malts.
Flavor: slightly sweet: Excellent sweet-bitter balance for style. Some hops and hint of dark chocolate and coffee apparent in the roasty aftertaste.
Feel: very smooth, medium body. Well carbonated.

Pours dark and impenetrable. Full 2 g fingers of head from draft. Smell grains and sugar. Coffee. Chocolate. Very light in the mouth. Not heavy. Definitely a light ABV. Reminds me of Guinness. Lighter. Hints of cream in the mouth. Subtle chocolate and coffee going down. No bitterness. Very drinkable. Won't face plant you. Smooth but leaves me wanting a Founders Breakfast. I'm not as fired up about it as others.

I absolutely love this beer. I originally bought it to be my Day-Off Beer, but it's great to start a vacation or just to have on the weekends or for dessert.

Appearance: Looks black, until you realize it's a dark caramel color tinted few shades of red. Poured into a Pilsner glass with a very thin dark tan head. Very inviting. 4.5/5

Smell: You can smell the lactose which gives it a nice sweetness and somehow smells very fresh. It could be me, but I have a hard time pinpointing additional aromas. 3/5

Mouthfeel: A nice medium to full bodied beer with a lingering heaviness. 4.5/5

Taste: The sweetness comes forward, but dissolves to dark coffee. The flavor hangs on your tongue for a long while. 4.5/5

Overall: A fantastic beer that I try and keep on hand at all times.
