Such an amazing beer, it just has everything going for it. I love the aroma, the feel, the taste. Very rich and creamy, a beautiful thick black color and hearty beer. Everyone and their mother should drink a glass of Founders Breakfast Stout.

One of the best stouts on the market. High ABV with no evidence in the taste.

Pours like 30 weight oil. vanilla head half finger then dissipates to a light film on top. coffee and chocolate very pronounced. Alcohol is very present. very smooth beer.

To me, super easy drink. mostly coffee with chocolate undertones.. it's a 'got to be in the mood beer' for me but when in the mood, it's great. goes well on a stout night~
in my experience, ages well in the bottles, going on 2 yrs
