This brew is black, and struggles valiantly to deny any light in. A brown head has nice retention and leaves lacing thinly on the glass.
There's definitely some coffee in here, including a roasted / smoky aroma, but what's really gripping is an oak-like, surprisingly strong aroma of wood. There's some bitter cocoa in there as well.
The first thing on the tongue is roasted coffee beans with a bit of an acrid, smoky edge complimented by rich dark chocolate with a woody undertone. Underneath are some hops that add a nice earthy, herbal flavor. Notes of cooked oatmeal are definitely in here, especially the finish. The ABV is very well hidden underneath the flavors.
This brew is a thick one, with a full, rich body and a smooth mouthfeel. Carbonation is light.
You know the annoying guy who's always saying "That's what I'm talkin' bout!"? This is what he's talkin' bout.

I am very excited a local bar in JP is now carrying Founder's on draft! The breakfast stout is a delicious tasty beer which has been praised all over the internet already. If you see it while you out, get it.. I promise it won't disappoint.

Not the eastiest keg to find. Beer is so good. One of my favorite stouts for sure. You haven't had a good stout until you have this beer.
