Founders Breakfast Stout is one of my go-to beers (I always have some on hand) - beautiful dark color and great balance (not too flat) so you get a little "ping" with each sip. A really terrific blend of coffee and chocolate so neither dominates. This is a heavy beer - three is enough for me!

A- Dark black with a thick head.

S- Blend of chocolate and coffee.

T- Lives up to it's smell a rich coffee/chocolatey flavor. The oatmeal smooths out the former flavors and it tastes amazing.

M- Very smooth. Very small amount of bitterness that stays with you for a bit after you've finished.

O- Absolutely beautiful blend of chocolate and coffee, in both smell and taste. One of the best beers I've had.
