For those that prefer the breakfast stout from Founder's will find this stout lacking somewhat. This beer poured a nice opaque with tan head that did not lace. The scent had roast and espresso base. The taste backed the scent up with ok roast and coffee. The mouthfeel was medium to light in body with subtle carbonation. Overall...eh...I could take or leave it...certainly not a 91 like other before me averaged.

This one didn't have much character for a stout. Not a fan.

This beers pours a black color, with a small tan head. There wasnt much in the ways of a smell. The taste with filled with a coffee flavor, but other then that the flavor was a bit watery. Easy to drink, if you like coffee. Overall not horrible, a bit light in overall flavors for a stout.

L - Dark brown - black. Appears clear. Thin light brown head - not persistent.
S - Dark and malty. Strong dark fruit, coffee, dark chocolate.
T - Dark malts dominate. Burnt toast, coffee, dark chocolate. Vague sweetness. A little resiny hops.

Served in a Trooper shaker pint glass.

I expected more of an oil reference, but, hey, I guess we live in a post-Horizon world, eh? Anyway, this stuff pours a straight black-brown topped by a finger of sienna foam. The nose comprises cocoa powder, roasted malts, and a hint of coffee. The taste holds notes of mild treacle, thin coffee, and a twinge of salted chocolate. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel, one that borders on being a bit thin. Overall, this is an okay stout, but it opts for straight-up bitterness in a relatively too-thin body rather than a richness of flavor and mouthfeel. I might have another, but I likely wouldn't be excited about it.
