Founders-Breakfast Stout-Double Chocolate Coffee Oatmeal Stout

Type: Bottle

8.9% ABV

60 IBU

A+

A rich and creamy Stout, brewed with flaked oats, bitter and sweetened imported chocolates, Sumatra and Kona coffee, all of which somehow taste through in the brilliant notes.  Pours black and thick, with a warm brown head.  When it first hits your tongue, you immediately taste the rich chocolate and Kona coffee, the aroma tantalizing the tongue with its contrast of creamy sweet and robust bitter.  Then the beer slows down as the thick fullness of the oatmeal settles, and Founders still finds time to round out the whole experience with some very slight hops and herbal flourishes.  This is by far the best stout I’ve ever had.  That’s not to say I won’t have a better one in the future, but I’ve never tasted anything more full and scrumptious.  For price, I also have to give this beer an A+.  At around twelve dollars a four pack, it may be the best deal on a rich imperial stout you’ll ever find.

In Conclusion: This is the king of breakfast stouts.  Founders has really made a masterpiece.

Food Pairing: Creamy Cheeses like Gouda and Brie and Smoked Meats.
