Founders Breakfast Stout

Wow wow wow. This might be my new favorite beer, Founders Breakfast Stout. Pours black and thick. The second I opened it, I was bombarded by the smell of coffee. And not that cheap, free stuff at work. Real strong, bitter, delicious coffee. That's exactly what it tasted like, with a finish of bittersweet chocolate and toasted oatmeal. It's thick, creamy, and quite bitter. It reads more like a coffee with alcohol than it does a beer, but that's fine by me. By the way, why aren't there more coffee-with-alcohol drinks? And at 8.3% ABV, a few of these will put you where you want to be!

If you don't like coffee, don't even try it. Please save it for someone who will truly appreciate it. Delicious.

Grade: A+


  1. Hey, I don't know if you've tried Founders' Porter yet.....but if you have not - GO GET IT! You say porters are your favorite style, and you seem to really enjoy thicker beers and coffee as well. This is exactly like me. I recently had Founders Porter and I am absolutely in love with it. Tastes like a lite version of the Breakfast Stout, but with slightly less coffee flavor (although it's still the primary flavor). It's the best beer I've ever had, and I have MAJOR trouble not downing an entire 6 pack the night I get it. I guarantee you it will knock ur socks off. SO good.

  2. I have been wanting to, but I haven't been able to find it. I might have to make a special request from the guys at wine/beer store.

    Thanks for the advice, and thanks for reading, who ever you are!
