Breakfast Stout

  • SRM Color : 40+
  • Brewer: Founder's Brewing

  • Recommended Glassware: A Teku 
  • Russ' rating: 10 / 10
  • With the brew: Seminole National Champions
  • Comments: I have been waiting for this to be available in my area and in season. I heard it was a great beer, and I was not disappointed. Breakfast Stout pours less viscous than I expected, but still quite a hearty beer. A dark toffee colored head of average size bubbles ( 0.5mm - 0.7mm ) forms but is shallow and quick to dissipate, leaving only a faint ring as you drink the beer. The beer drinks with a sharp coffee flavor that is slightly bitter, but smooth and pleasant. Very reminiscent of the bitter chocolate it contains. It drinks easily and smooth. Delicious!
